Here’s another one in the “Fuck it!” series.
My good old friend Mårten Runow (OT 8 still in the Church of Scientology) once said to me: “The good thing about non-scientologists is that they don’t know that they have a reactive mind they can dramatize).“. What got me thinking about that quote was an excellent comment from Spyros:
“I thought it could be useful to have a book or books that contain SCN stuff that don’t require a line of trainning to be applied. I thought stuff like study tech and assist in particular, would match this criteria. And then, I got a cog: Ever since I stopped considering study tech -the misunderstood word(s) phenomena in particular- I stopped having that phenomena. I can read a text and see a word that I don’t quite grasp and continue reading and have no problem with the rest of the text at all! No blankness, no wondering about it, no tendecy to blow etc. I’m sure Ron knew about this. Actually it is mentioned in an instance somewhere in Student Hat. But not much stress is put on it. If I wanted to relay something from SCN to the broad public, that would be something like “if you want to have a problem, consider that it exists –or that it can potentialy exist!”. Want to have a reactive mind? Consider that there is one….then to make it even more real, try to resolve it (counter-create it)”
And I believe there is a great deal of truth to this. Chill.
