Definition of Training – Training is teaching, or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge or fitness that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one’s capability, capacity, productivity, and performance.
We have the technology to change our lives and the lives of others using the Technology of Scientology that LRH has given us. Someone the other day said to me that he does not “believe” in the Tech of Scientology any more than he believes in Physics or Chemistry. What they were saying is that it is not a belief system any more than physics is a belief system. If you freeze water it turns solid, if you apply a process exactly as it is supposed to be run you change a condition in an individual or yourself as a Solo Auditor.
A trained Scientologist has a huge advantage over the untrained. Would you trust an untrained engineer to build an airplane for you? It might fly but the odds are against it.
In Scientology an untrained Auditor can get someone, including themselves, into a whole heap of trouble!
There are basic tools that need to be known before a competent job can be done in the application of the Technology in life with those around you and then onto the higher levels of the Bridge in Scientology.
Start with becoming a Book One Auditor – One who uses the techniques as laid out in “Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health” relieve the painful emotional and physical events that have occurred in a person’s life and take them out from under a cloud of misery and pain.
This is an invaluable, easy to learn skill that needs minimal training to have someone be up and delivering this technology with remarkable results and the ability to help others and provides invaluable experience as an auditor which all goes to help your personal progress up the Bridge.
The Assists fall into the same category, easy to learn and enormously helpful.
In times of crisis or confusion this is what usually happens:
“People depend on others or the environment or force to do something about it and fail” – LRH
Let us take a look at why Ron says training is so valuable…
The Value of Training
“If you think a trained scientologist is someone who only audits then you have a very limited view of Scientology. The trained Scientologist is today’s cause-point in an embattled world. The factories, the marts of trade, the Homes, the neighborhoods, these are the place we want trained scientologists applying Scientology Technology. In that way alone we’re on the busy, still healthy communication lines of the world. If we avoid the throbbing communication lines of the world we will not win soon enough as a group. We want companies functioning better to produce a better civilization. We want races becoming sane and stable assets to their communities. We want neighborhoods smoothing out.
So get on the active lines of the world and make your presence felt. It takes training to do it. It takes application of our technology.” – THE AUDITOR NO.49
And so, the more skills you gain the more able you become and as an Academy Trained Auditor you really know how to handle those around you.
“The only one who can put more life, more understanding, more tolerance and more capability into the environment is himself, just by existing in a state of higher understanding. Without even being active in the field of auditing, just by being more capable, an individual could resolve for those around him many of their problems and difficulties. The accent is on ability” L RON HUBBARD, from DIANETICS 55! Page 66
However, many Scientologists prefer to only take the processing route up to Clear and OT without further training. But Ron says …
“Seeing the whole training cycle half of the Chart continue blank means that much more ignorance and trouble for the pc in making his gains stably” – PROGRAMMING CASES – HCOB 12 June 1970
“Processing people results in better individuals but not better individuals for Scientology … It is not enough to make people feel better. What we’re trying to do is to reach out into the public. These people actually need and can use the basic materials of Scientology and we are denying them the richest benefit of Scientology in letting them go adrift merely feeling better without any real further understanding of life for they simply relapse. This is an actual fact.” – OPERATIONAL BULLETIN NO.17 – 14 February 1956
And besides if one has received training up through the Academy Levels, one becomes so much more adept at handling ARC breaks, missed withhold phenomena or wrong indications being given in life, both in self and others.
So the truth of the matter is that one does get a much broader reality and understanding of what one is working towards and therefore the rewards become far greater if one travels along both sides of the Bridge.
“What I have learned is that cases do not progress beyond their Scientology education level. This has made a great difference; a case hangs right at the point to which it has been educated in Scientology. Processing gains are parallel to education gains and the two balance. Fifty percent of a case gain is from processing, fifty percent from training. . . .
HCOB – TRAINING & OT
. . .“It’s quite impossible to go to OT without a full knowledge of OT processes and an ability to audit them. That was the main point that emerged. But similarly, nobody gets past lower levels as a case without a knowledge of them. This was the main hang up in cases – lack of education in Scientology.” –
“While the Solo Auditor’s Course is very good, smart preclears and smart Dianetic Clears take other courses before they get to an AO and then they are sure to make OT more easily.” LRH ED 301 INT RON’S Journal 30 17 Dec 1978
“And I believe the freedom of the material which we know and understand is guaranteed only by lightness of organization, a maximum of people, good training and good, reliable, sound relay of information. And if we can’t do these things, sooner or later the information which we hold will become the property of an untrustworthy few. This I am sure because it has always happened this way…”
