LRH was talking about this back in 1952 (67 years ago!) when he gave the lecture below. This data is only now becoming real to those beings who are moving into the higher realms of OT. Sitting on a mountain top contemplating the beauty and wonders of the Universe, cutting oneself off from other beings and MEST is NOT the solution. As LRH says:
“If you cannot handle energy in its fullest extent don’t think you can be free of this universe or any other one”.
“When we talk about this universe we’re talking about energy. The only way an individual can be held into this universe is by a conviction that he cannot handle energy, because this is a universe full of energy, and is composed only of energy, which operates in a thing called MEST (Matter, Energy, Space, Time) universe space. If you cannot handle energy in its fullest extent don’t think you can be free of this universe or any other one.
Force begets force, and he who lives by the sword will die by one. I promise you! But funny thing is, you have to be able to have enough force to use an unlimited quantity of force, before you can pass over into a higher band of ethics. One cannot retreat from and cower back from force, under any pretext whatsoever, and still have a beingness above the level of this universe.
When you stop and think right now, perhaps, of being hit in the face, in the MEST body, with a hundred thousand KW lightning bolt, it possibly is not a comfortable thought. But I assure you that that is a small amount of juice, compared to what you as a thetan can take. You ought to be able to pick your teeth with a million KW lightning bolt, theta wise. If you have ever seen the mercy of the very strong, compared to the sympathy and fear of the very weak, if you’ve ever watched these two things, you will see the mockery of bottom scale trying to echo the top of the scale.
A person has to be very, very strong before he can be ethical and completely merciful of his own free will. At the bottom of the scale a person has been forced to be, and everything affects him. He has been an effect of this and an effect of that, and so on. He’s still carrying along with him some of his capability; there’s still theta there at the bottom of the scale, but not much of it. He has crossed over, you might say, crossed over the span of force on the band, successfully.
But bluntly, nobody ever crawled out of this universe through the bottom of the hole. Nobody ever got out that way. That’s a grave.”
Many try short cuts and quickie solutions and found the unworkability of those! As LRH says;
“The only way out is through”. You have to be able to conquer the full use and control of any factor of the first dynamic, and having conquered that, the full use, control, of the factor of the second dynamic, and the third and so forth. You have to be willing and capable, and in full control of those dynamics, before you are free of them. Because always lingering in the back of your mind, no matter how esoteric you may think your ambitions may be, always lingering in the back of the mind is something you can’t do. Which is always a disability.
The capability of a thetan is not simply force. You take every saint on the calendar as represented as having a big bright aura. What do you think that aura was representing? That was representing something very interesting. Raw energy. Now whether or not these boys could wield energy or not, I don’t know. But they certainly represented them that way and have continued to do so ever since.
Tell you something interesting: Right there. Force. You want to be able to heal somebody at a distance, you have to have the capability of charring them into charcoal at a distance. And don’t mistake that one, either. Because the ability to produce force is the ability to make a strong postulate. And the ability to make a strong postulate alone is capable of controlling the health and beingness of others.”

We often hear people complaining that the study and application of Scientology takes so long … takes so much of their time … but as we move along and get a small taste of what can be; does that not make it all worthwhile?
