I've had some accusatory comments (which I haven't posted - it's my blog, right?) about the quote regarding personal integrity. The quote is very simple and succinct:
"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." - L. Ron Hubbard
I've gotten comments saying that is a scapegoat for Scientologists, saying that we use it too freely. So, I thought I'd dredge up another quote about Scientology and life. I sincerely hope this helps people understand how Scientologists feel about their religion and about life in general:
"...But just because you know Scientology is no reason or license to stop living. You should be able to live much more fully. But you feel very free to use or not use exactly what you know, to use it as you think it ought to be used, to create the effect you want to create or just to create a random effect. That's a wide license, isn't it? The material is yours. Go ahead and take it." - L. Ron Hubbard
I think that's pretty clear. You can study the material of Dianetics and Scientology, then decide if you want to use it in life and how much you'd like to use it in life. Just like every other religion, you have the choice of when and how to use the information you've studied.
PS: Please, if you do have a question, frame it nicely and politely or it won't be published. If you accuse me or my religion of anything, I won't be publishing your comment. If you have a question about something that has nothing to do with this post, I'll try to answer it or give you a link that will answer it. I think these are pretty reasonable requests and most readers do the above naturally - but some don't and may wonder why they aren't getting their comments published.
