Emotional Tone Scale

In the Scientology Handbook there is a chapter on the Emotional Tone Scale. With this information it is possible to know who to associate with, who to avoid and help those who are mired in uncomfortable situations with others.

Why I Love Scientology

Here's just one more reason I love Scientology.

Look at these people. They need help. the Scientologists from Scientology Churches in Australia and the Scientology Mission of Manila are right out there helping in the Philippines after last month's Typhoon Durian.

They show two things I really admire - the willingness to help and the ability to actually do so.

Snow in LA?

Okay. So what's the deal?

It actually SNOWED in Malibu and West Hollywood yesterday.

And a friend of mine landed flat on her bum after sliding on the ICE in Hollywood.

What is this!

It this the other side of global warming?

Man. We have got to do something about this joint!

2006 Was A Record Year for Scientology

2006 was the biggest year of expansion in the history of Scientology and 2007 looks like it will be even bigger!

Here is an article that gives you an overview of last year: The Church of Scientology International Announces Record Expansion of the Religion in 2006

Scientology New Years Event

Some of my friends who hadn't seen this year's Scientology New Years Eve event and I went to see it yesterday (it's on DVD and you can go into any Scientology church of mission if you want to see it).

Watching it again I was even MORE struck by the excitement of what is going on with Scientology internationally than I was when I first heard David Miscavige give the overview on New Years Eve!

It was almost too much to take in at first.

I should have written down some of the figures so I could share it on my blog, and here's just a rough estimate.

If I remember correctly, there are over 7000 non-Scientologists who have been trained as Scientology Volunteer Ministers - rescue workers, doctors, nurses, police, firemen etc, using Scientology technology to help people in times of emergency and disaster.

Over 5 million people were helped by Volunteer Ministers in just the past year alone.

And try this one on for size - Criminon, which uses L. Ron Hubbard's technology in the rehabilition of offenders - has a program in all the jails in Israel, and of all the criminals who have completed the program there has not been a single cased of recidivism (going back to jail).

That's unbelievable considering that the entire prison system is known to be a revolving door!

But as a Scientologist and knowing what I know about Scientology it's not surprising to me at all. It's a technology of life. It sounds like magic. But it works!

I remember when I first saw John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Still love him!

An Introduction to Scientology

I got a copy of the newly restored interview with L. Ron Hubbard, called An Introduction to Scientology.

I always loved this interview. I saw it first on an old 8mm reel to reel camera in Black and White. But it has been impecably colorized and it is a really remarkable product.

First of all, LRH's whole attitude, his grace and warmth, his humar and brilliance shine through so clearly.

I've been a Scientologist almost 40 years, but listening to this interview I learned things I never knew before.

And on top of that, the word that was done by Sea Org members working at Gold to restore this is not just magnificent, it's miraculous!

At the event, David Miscavige showed us before and after clips so you could see the magnitude of the work that had to be done and the incredible quality of the final product.

These guys are professionals - starting with David Miscavige and then all the way down to the lowest technician on this assembly line.

What they produced was impossible, (and I'm sure glad they didn't think so!)
