HOW DOES SCIENTOLOGY WORK?
The Scientology religion provides answers to many questions about life and death. It encompasses an exact, precisely mapped-out path. In developing Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard discovered a technology to free the human spirit and thereby allow Man to really know himself. He thoroughly tested all procedures and recorded those that proved most workable in bringing about uniformly predictable results. These comprise standard Scientology technology.
Through application of Scientology principles and technology in an auditing session, a person is able to remove barriers and unwanted conditions and so become more himself. As a person progresses, he often reaches out to help others in the ways he has been helped. That which is real to the person is all one is asked to accept of Scientology. No beliefs are forced upon him. By training and processing, he finds out for himself the answers he is searching for in life.
WHAT DOES SCIENTOLOGY ACCOMPLISH?
Scientology stresses the application and workability of its principles and techniques. When properly practiced, Scientology enables one to develop in all aspects of life, both spiritual and temporal. It addresses the individual and brings about greater happiness and self-confidence by increasing awareness and ability. It differs from other religious philosophies in that it provides the means through which a person can effectively resolve the problems and situations faced by themselves and others.
A fundamental premise of Scientology is that Man is basically good and can improve conditions in his life. However, Scientology cannot promise to do anything by itself. Only the individual can bring about their own improvement by applying the teachings of Scientology to themselves and those around them.
HOW DO PEOPLE GET INTO SCIENTOLOGY?
Usually by word of mouth, often by reading a book, seeing promotional materials or visiting a Church of Scientology. Sometimes one becomes interested by meeting a Scientologist and sensing that person has "something"-a positive attitude toward life, certainty, self-confidence and happiness, which they too would like to have.
Fundamentally, people get into Scientology because they want to improve something in their lives or because they wish to help others improve and thus create a better civilization.
HOW DOES SCIENTOLOGY VIEW MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY?
Scientology regards the family as the building block of any society and marriage as an essential component of a stable family life.
People often find that after they begin practicing Scientology, their relationships with spouses and other family members strengthen dramatically. That is because Scientology teaches an individual to communicate more freely with others, raises the capacity to love and puts one in better communication with family and friends.
Surveys have found that, after participating in Scientology services, individuals are more likely to marry or stay married and to have children than before they became Scientologists.
To learn more, read "Marriage" from The Scientology Handbook or enroll on the online course.
HOW DOES THE CHURCH VIEW RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN A SCIENTOLOGIST AND FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT SCIENTOLOGISTS?
Because Scientology is a relatively young religion, most Scientologists have non-Scientologist relatives. The Church encourages and helps its members to have excellent family relationships, whether or not their relatives are Scientologists. In fact, relationships between a Scientologist and the rest of his family routinely improve after one begins practicing Scientology because one has acquired the means to increase communication and resolve any problems that might have previously existed.
The Church goes to great lengths to reconcile family differences should a problem arise. For example, Scientology Chaplains will assist family members to work together to discover the real cause of their disagreements. Friends and family of Scientologists are always welcome to visit the Church, to meet other Scientologists and to have any questions they may have about Scientology answered. Regardless of whether the other family members choose to become Scientologists or not, Scientologists take deep pride in their record of resolving family problems and conflicts.
IS SCIENTOLOGY OPEN TO ANYONE?
Scientology is open to anyone who seeks spiritual betterment. The materials that comprise the Scientology religion are readily available at Churches of Scientology and public libraries throughout the world. Churches and missions are always open to the public and anyone can come in for a tour and personally see what the Church is all about.
Scientologists come from all walks of life, and include almost every imaginable profession: teachers, businesspersons, physicians, homemakers, attorneys, engineers, nurses, construction workers, marketing and administrative professionals, secretaries, athletes, civil servants and artists of every description.
IS SCIENTOLOGY A SECRET SOCIETY?
Not at all. One may go into a Scientology Church at any time and Scientology books, recorded lectures, films and other literature are readily available to anyone. There is no demand for one to withdraw from society when he begins Scientology; on the contrary, Scientologists are widely known for becoming deeply involved in life around them as they are eager to take responsibility for improving conditions.
