Looking at the current scene of Scientology, I see no one reaching a high level of spiritualistic serenity. I see bankruptcies, torn families, even suicides. People enter Scientology with some idea or hope of more spiritual freedom or serenity. Had it been possible to reach such a state in, let’s say fourteen or eighteen years, I think most would jump at the possibility. But no, in fourteen or eighteen years in the Church of Scientology, you’re most probably sucked dry for both time and money.
Hubbard should have torn out whatever hair was left had he seen what the Church of Scientology was accomplishing these days. And I believe he would have recommended that people moved to India for their spiritual progress.
In the book “Dianetics 55!”, he wrote about his travels to the East and of people studying Eastern Philosophies:
“..I saw individuals taking fourteen or eighteen years in order to get up to a high level of spiritualistic serenity.”
That would be quite something. I will take Hubbard’s hint and check it out myself. Besides practicing hug-ology, of course.
