The Courseroom

New to Dianetics or Scientology?

For those new to Dianetics/Scientology there is counseling and training to assist you in putting order into your life and expanding your spiritual awareness.

All that are interested in Scientology should take one datum to heart at the outset of his study of the subject. This was written by L. Ron Hubbard and originally published in a Magazine of Dianetics and Scientology called Ability in issue 125 of February 1961.

What is true for you is what you have observed yourself And when you lose that you have lost everything.

What is personal integrity?
Personal integrity is knowing what you know—
What you know is what you know—
And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed.
And that is integrity.
And there is no other integrity.

Of course we can talk about honor, truth, all these things,
These esoteric terms.
But I think they’d all be covered very well
If what we really observed was what we observed,
That we took care to observe what we were observing,
That we always observed to observe.

And not necessarily maintaining a skeptical attitude,
A critical attitude, or an open mind.
But certainly maintaining sufficient personal integrity
And sufficient personal belief and confidence in self
And courage that we can observe what we observe
And say what we have observed.

Nothing in Dianetics and Scientology is true for you
Unless you have observed it
And it is true according to your observation.
That is all.

In your study of this subject you should take nothing on faith or believe in it. Test each datum for its application and see if it works for you.

In this way you know what is true for yourself.

Two books that will give you a firm understanding of the subject and can be found in a book store are Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and Self Analysis.

We have three courses that are considered beginning courses and these are:

  • The Communications Course
  • The Integrity for Life Course
  • The Independent Hubbard Qualified Scientologist Course (HQS).

Feel free to do a personality test give us a call and we can decide which one would best handle what is going on with you.

Scientology is the application of a philosophy of Man as a spiritual being and his relationship to himself, other beings, the physical universe and even to infinity (source of all life).

That definition may seem esoteric but it gets down to a very real world application that can assist a person in their everyday life.

The route that one travels to attain each increase in awareness is laid out in a chart called The Classification and Gradation Chart. It is commonly referred to as The Bridge. So those who study the application of Scientology and/or receive counseling commonly ask where each is at on the Bridge, which would mean what they have completed on The Classification and Gradation Chart.

Here at The Courseroom Scientology is not an esoteric subject. It deals with real world solutions to real world problems that we all face. This is especially true of the lower levels of training and counseling as these are aimed at getting the problems of the individual's life handled. This way his life is not slowing him from moving through the upper levels of the Bridge.

We have mentioned that both Training and Counseling are available in Scientology and the important thing to understand is that both are vitally important in one gaining the full benefits of the subject.
