The Scientology Handbook

The Scientology Handbook

One publication that I've found very practical and useful is the Scientology Handbook.

The book goes through various parts of peoples' lives, different situations or difficulties we have and gives some down-to-Earth Scientology techniques to resolve these issues.

The key point to understand is that Scientology is based on many years of intense research by L. Ron Hubbard into how the mind and life work. With the magnitude of the discoveries he made, and the fact that these discoveries were of the basic components of life itself, simple techniques to handle situations in one's life naturally followed.

Techniques given here represent Scientology that can be applied by anyone to resolve the problems each of us confront in our day-to-day lives.

- Modern relationships often degenerate into petty arguments and grudges. But why? In this section you can find out what relationships are actually based on, and how to prevent them from going up in smoke by applying some simple, but extremely power concepts. Be it personal, business, whatever.

Life's Goals - In my experience, as one gets older he starts to ask himself: So what's the deal with my life? What have I accomplished, and what am I going to accomplish? And of course this leads into so how to I organize this so I can really achieve it. This section explains.

Marriage - Additional concepts embrace the subject of marriage. Learn what specifically keeps a marriage together and how to apply this to yours (I can personally vouch for this one, as my marriage - going on five years - has only gotten stronger and better with the passage of time).

Children - It is common knowledge that a child raised properly will grow up to become a successful adult, and happy at what he or she does for a living. But the question is, what is a "proper upbrining". I can think of quite a few definitions. The key is to define it in terms of rock-bottom basics about what people are and the principles on which they operate.

Stress on the Job - As one's work consumes a rather significant portion of one's life, you mind as well figure out what that is all about as well and learn to be successful at that. Besides, being successful at one's work can mean the difference between success and failure in one's life overall, since economics tends to have a heavy bearing on ones standard of living. Learn not only to deal with the stress, but to become a positive success.

The Future - Learn to plan and organize the future. The basic principles of life can easily be applied to one's future in order to organize it so that one achieves his objectives.

Drug Dependency - With drug use a common scourge in today's society, it's no wonder the drug dependency is so common. And while this isn't a problem for everyone, it's not a pretty sight when yourself or someone you love has an addiction. Scientology takes a unique approach and deals with the person himself, not just his body, and gets to the root of the problem.

Self-Esteem - Why does one's esteem fade? What can be done to fix it? Scientology can help you find this out as well.

Integrity - Above all else, one's personal integrity is key to living happily. If you betray yourself - your done for - no doubt about it (maybe slowly, maybe quickly, but nonetheless definitely) .

Communication - The magic of communication is difficult to overstate. Many of the other subjects covered here are in themselves based on communication. In Scientology the basic concepts have been isolated and documented, making it simple for you to understand and apply the principles of communication to your life.

Study Trouble - Becoming educated is a vital part of survival for each one of us. Unfortunately, we are not taught how to study in school, just that we need to. The basic concepts on this are very simple and can be learned and applied rapidly by anyone. (As a note: This material is designed to be very simple, since it needs to be understandable by all - however, this - like all of these Scientology concepts - is based on basic principle and has been proven workable time and time again - statistics in schools all over the world prove it.)

Conflicts - Find out why people have hidden and mysterious conflicts, and what you can do about it.

Solutions to a Dangerous Environment - Learn what a dangerious environemnt is, and what can be done to resolve it.

Predicting People - This is, from my personal observation, another point that many, many of us fall down on. In business it is absolutely vital to know how to choose your people.

Illnesses & Injuries - A number of simple Scientology Assists as they are called, exist to help people speedily recover from illnesses and injuries.

Ups and Downs - Learn what causes the ups and downs in ones life. It might not be what you think!
