 RESULTS FROM APPLICATION:

"I suffered for years, ever since I was a kid, from sinus pressure. It would get so bad, I couldn't even bend over to pick up a pencil!

"And as a result, I'd have migraine headaches.

"Dianetics handled the source of my headaches - the reactive mind.

"I can't explain the feeling that I had at that time. The pressure just blew. I could feel it come off my face and it was such a relief.

"I walked around for months thinking, 'Okay, when is it going to come back?

When is it going to start?' It never did. It was just gone."

- K. F.

"My marriage was headed for divorce. And even though we loved each other, something had come between us and we didn't know what it was.

"We tried everything. We went to a marriage counselor, we even went to a psychiatrist and the end result was we still were headed for divorce.

"So just when I was about to file the final papers, a close friend of ours insisted, absolutely insisted, that we try Dianetics.

"And that was when we knew what had come between us - it was the reactive mind.

"So not only did Dianetics give us the tools to save and rebuild our marriage, but we love each other more today than the day we got married."

C. L.

 

"Dianetics enabled me to realize my potentials and find the success I had always sought."

K.B., Top Investment Counselor

 

"When I was 14 my life  became an uphill struggle.  A severe injury left me with a crippling back pain 24 hours a day.  I was told I would require treatment for the rest of my life and I wold have to live with the pain.  Over the next 12 years, I Iooked everywhere for a solution.  I even became a Doctor  of Chiropractic, but still nothing could make the pain stop.   Finally, I tried Dianetics, and I found that the pain was being caused by the reactive mind.  Within a few hours I stood up and, for the first time in 12 years, the pain was gone.   Dianetics has the answers!"

S.P., Doctor of Chiropractic

 

"I had a terrible accident and fractured my neck, and as a result was in a terrific amount of pain.  The doctors did everything that they could to try and handle it, and while my neck did heal, the pain persisted.  I began to take drugs to suppress the pain, and I became hooked on drugs.   That was the end of my motorcycle racing career.

"Then I found Dianetics and I found that the pain was in fact  coming from the reactive mind, because Dianetics handled it.  And I was no longer hooked on drugs when the pain was gone.

 "I started racing motorcycles again - this was ten years after the accident - and I went right to the top in racing motorcycles here in the United States.  Then I began training others and in fact I've trained ten of the last twelve national superbike champions.  None of this would ever have happened it it wasn't for Dianetics."

K.C., Champion Motorcycle Racing Instructor

Companion lecture series: Dianetics Lectures and Demonstrations

Immediately following the first publication of Dianetics, Ron began lecturing to thousands upon thousands in packed auditoriums across America.  And now, you can be there.  In these 4 lectures, you’ll hear Ron describe the events that sparked his investigation and groundbreaking discoveries and then, even more, his personal demonstration of Dianetics auditing procedure to overcome the reactive mind.

About the Author

L. Ron Hubbard

There are only two tests of a life well lived L. Ron Hubbard once remarked: Did one do as one intended? And were people glad one lived? In testament to the first stands the full body of his life’s work, including some 12,000 writings and 3,000 tape-recorded lectures of Dianetics and Scientology.   In evidence of the second are the hundreds of millions of individuals whose lives have been demonstrably bettered because he lived. They are the more than 28 million students now reading superlatively owing to L. Ron Hubbard’s educational discoveries; they are the millions of men and women freed from substance abuse through L. Ron Hubbard’s breakthroughs in drug rehabilitation; they are the near 100 million who have been touched by his nonreligious moral code: and they are the many millions more who hold his work to be the spiritual cornerstone of their lives. 

Although best known for Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard cannot be so simply categorized. If nothing else, his life was too varied, his influence too broad. There are tribesmen in Southern Africa, for example, who know nothing of Dianetics and Scientology, but they know L. Ron Hubbard the educator.  Likewise, there are factory workers in Albania who know him only for his administrative discoveries; children in China who know him only as the author of their moral code, and readers in dozens of languages who know him only for his novels. So, no, L. Ron Hubbard is not an easy man to categorize and certainly does not fit popular misconceptions of “religious founder” as an aloof and contemplative figure. Yet the more one comes to know this man and his achievements, the more one comes to realize he was precisely the sort of person to have brought us Scientology, the only major religion to have been founded in the twentieth century. 

What Scientology offers is likewise what one would expect of a man such as  L. Ron Hubbard. For not only does it provide a fully unique approach to our most fundamental questions—Who are we? From where did we come and what is our destiny? But it further provides an equally unique technology for greater spiritual awareness. So how would we expect to characterize the founder of such a religion? Clearly, he would have to be larger than life, attracted to people, liked by people, dynamic, charismatic and immensely capable in a dozen fields—all exactly L. Ron Hubbard. 

The fact is, if Mr. Hubbard had stopped after only one of his many accomplishments he would still be celebrated today. For example, with 46 million works of fiction in circulation, including such monumental bestsellers as Battlefield Earth, Fear and the Mission Earth series, Mr. Hubbard is unquestionably one of the most acclaimed and widely read authors of all time. His novels have earned some of the world’s most prestigious literary awards, and he has very genuinely been described as “one of the most prolific and influential writers of the twentieth century.” 

His earlier accomplishments are similarly impressive. As a barnstorming aviator through the 1930s he was known as “Flash” and broke local records for sustained glider flight. As a leader of expeditions, he is credited with conducting the first complete Puerto Rican mineralogical survey under United States protectorship and his navigational annotations still influence the maritime guides for British Columbia. His experimentation with early radio direction finding further became the basis for the Long Range Navigational system (Loran). And, as a lifelong photographer, his works have been displayed in galleries on two continents, with the definitive body of his photographs in traveling and permanent exhibits still drawing tens of thousands every year. 

Among other avenues of research, Mr. Hubbard developed and codified an administrative technology that is utilized by more than 200,000 organizations worldwide, including multinational corporations, charitable bodies, political parties, schools, youth clubs and every imaginable small business. Likewise Mr. Hubbard’s internationally acclaimed educational methods are utilized by more than a hundred thousand educators, while his equally acclaimed drug rehabilitation program has proven at least five times more effective than similarly aimed programs. 

Yet, however impressive these figures, no measure of L. Ron Hubbard is complete without some appreciation of what became his life’s work: Dianetics and Scientology.  The world’s most effective force for positive change, the Church of Scientology represents spiritual freedom for millions of people the world over. They come from every walk of life, every culture and every strata of society. Moreover, when one is speaking of L. Ron Hubbard’s discoveries relating to the human mind and spirit, one is ultimately speaking of the philosophic foundation of all he accomplished: better education, crime-free cities, drug-free campuses, stable and ethical organizations and cultural revitalization through the arts—all this and more is made possible because of the breakthroughs in Dianetics and Scientology.
