Blog: Being "On Course" in Scientology - 2017-05-20
Most all Scientologists have a longstanding love/hate relationship with studying Scientology. In the beginning, members are excited to learn all about L. Ron Hubbard's revolutionary mind/spirit technology. All too soon, they hate having to "put in the time." Which in the world of Scientology is no small commitment.
LRH famously wrote, "A cleared cannibal is a cleared cannibal." Which means you can "clear" a man of all those past traumas adversely affecting him, but unless you train him properly in Scientology technology, he won't operate well in life. He won't "flourish and prosper." Clearing the cannibal doesn't guarantee he'll secure a good-paying job and make hefty donations to his favorite church. He'll need training for that. Per LRH, training is over half the gains in Scientology.
Education is valuable. Education is important. Knowing the rules of the game is essential. Everyone needs to know how to get down the field and get the ball in the net.
