Blog: Platitudes, Bad Attitudes and Mother Issues - 2017-07-15
"Anything for which the individual feels any misemotion—antagonism, anger, fear, grief, apathy—is something for which he has not accepted responsibility; and there is misemotion only when an individual refuses to accept responsibility in that sphere of action. He can control anything for which he has accepted the full responsibility. He is unable to control that for which he has not accepted responsibility." L. Ron Hubbard, The Dianetic Auditor's Bulletin, February 1952, CAUSE AND EFFECT.
Although he seems to include just enough kernels of truth to make me think the whole thing is true, this is another example of one of LRH's completely unattainable platitudes. Maybe if I'd been Buddha or Gandhi in another lifetime I would have fully understood… But even then, he's talking about more "control" than I've ever seen demonstrated.
