The definition of technology is: the methods of application of an art or science as opposed to mere knowledge of the science or art itself.

Dianetics spiritual healing technology addresses and handles the effects of the spirit on the body and can alleviate such things as unwanted sensations and emotions, accidents, injuries and psychosomatic illnesses (ones that are caused or aggravated by mental stress). Dianetics means “through the soul” (from Greek dia, through, and nous, soul). It is further defined as “what the soul is doing to the body.”

Book One

Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health is sometimes referred to by Scientologists as "Book 1."

Not only did it start the whole movement, it was the first formally published book on Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard (he wrote to before this one, but one wasn't published till afterwards, and the other was published in a magazine before it was publishes as a book).

It is also the text that gives the information anyone needs to study to fully understand the mind and to be able to apply Dianetics techniques to help someone.

Scientology missions and churches offer Dianetics Seminars that have audio visual presentations that help the person new to the subject grasp the basic principles so they can start to use the techniques right away.

International Day of Peace

In honor of the International Day of Peace, I post this section of the Dianetics web site, which quotes L. Ron Hubbard on the subject:

Can a nation obtain peace by waging war?

According to a recent Gallup poll, concerns about war is one of the most important problems in the world today.

When Dianetics was written in 1950, the world was still recovering from WW II and the Korean War was about to begin. Then, like now, the world was unstable. Then, as now, people were asking why can’t we live in harmony?

In his research, L. Ron Hubbard found that states and nations behave and react just as individuals do. The conflicts of society at large — and war itself — are ultimately the result of personal aberration. And ultimately, the way to solve the world’s problems is to bring harmony and happiness to the individual. If that were possible, one by one, we would make a better world.

And that’s what Dianetics is doing, and succeeding at, with every passing day. As L. Ron Hubbard explained in the final chapter of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health:

“Dianetics addresses war because there is in fact a race between the science of mind and the atom bomb. There may be no future generation to know which won.

Rationality alone can guide man past these threats to his extinction.”

Have you even seen the effects of the loss of a husband, wife, child or close friend on another. Have you noticed that their lives deteriorated -- that they never were quite the same -- that they couldn't seem to get over it....

Many people can spot that their lives started to deteriorate when they suffered a terrible loss.

Even if not a death - the loss of a job, of an opportunity -- for an athlete, the point when he suffered an injury that took him out of the game for good.

This is so much the case that there are whole philosophies based on fatalism - movies that promote that that's the way it is...

But with Dianetics auditing it does not have to be that way.

For someone who has lost someone very dear to them, Dianetics auditing will not bring that person back. Nothing will. But Dianetics technology can help the individual erase the pain and grief. And then what is left is the memories of a wonderful person, and all the great times you had with them, without the overwhelming loss.

Have you ever met someone who was apathetic.

Or worse, have you ever felt that way yourself?

The definition of apathy in the Scientology glossary is:

"A complete withdrawal from person or people. There is no real attempt to contact oneself and no attempt to contact others. A very docile and obedient, if sick, state of not-beingness. It is near death or an imitation of death. For example, a person in apathy would say, 'What’s the use? All is lost.'"

I had a friend in college who was like that. No matter what the subject, she was certain that it wasn't worth trying -- she'd never make it, no one would listen to her, she wouldn't make friends there, she wouldn't be able to pass the course... and on and on.

She didn't have many friends, because no one could bear to be around her.

And everything she tried turned to ruin.

I was very frustrated at the time because I really liked her and I simply couldn't help her.

Ultimately, I gave up. And now I can't ever remember her name. But I certainly remember her.

Now, if I were to see her and she were still apathetic, I'd know that the best thing I could do would be to give her Self Analsysis auditing to help her raise her emotional tone level and then I'd follow it up with Dianetics auditing to get to the root of what caused her to utterly lose her self esteem.

It is actually remarkable what Scientology and Dianetics auditing can do.

Dianetics in Java

A great story today on the Scientology Press Office web site on Scientologists who are helping the people of Java.

I had no idea how volatile Indonesia is. It's the 4th most populous country on Earth, and yet it is subject to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes and tsunamis all the time.

I love to see the work the Scientology Disaster Relief Team is doing, using Scientology and Dianetics technology.

Can Dianetics Technology Help Me Overcome Feelings of Grief and Loss?


The source of any negative emotion, attitude or feeling is fully revealed in Dianetics. The causes of a person’s feelings of grief or loss are buried in the person’s reactive mind, able to influence and control the person.

Dianetics technology guides a person through his or her reactive mind to locate — and permanently eradicate — the actual source of the upset. With the cause of the upset handled, the person is once more able to live a happy, healthy life.

What is the Significance of the Dianetics Symbol?

The Dianetics symbol uses the Greek letter Delta as its basic form. The stripes are green for growth and yellow for life. The four green stripes represent the four subdivisions of life which are delineated in Dianetics.

What Can Dianetics tell me about the mind?

The mind is basically a communication and control system between the person and his environment. It is composed of mental image pictures, which are recordings of past experiences.

The individual uses his mind to pose and solve problems related to survival and to direct his efforts according to these solutions.

The reactive mind is the portion of a person’s mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis, which is not under his volitional (willing) control, and which exerts force and the power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions.
