Author, humanitarian and Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard is one of the most acclaimed figures of the modern age.
In a writing career spanning more than half a century, he was both a leading light of American fiction and the author of more than 35 million words of nonfiction the single most embracive statement on the human mind and spirit, providing the only road to total spiritual freedom.
To date, more than 250 million copies of his works are in circulation worldwide, in 71 languages. All told, those works comprise over 3,000 recorded lectures and some 5,000 writings, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers.
Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.
Yet the essence of L. Ron Hubbard s legacy is perhaps best expressed in his simple declaration:
I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.
These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is.Review:
A hidden part of the human mind is at the root of our problems of stress, unhappiness, self-doubt and paralyzing anxiety, said the author of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
Author L. Ron Hubbard said past painful experiences are stored as memories just below the level of conscious thought in what he called the reactive mind, where they can be triggered in the present to work destructively against you. It works like this: through years of research on hundreds of cases, Hubbard discovered two parts to the human mind. First there is the analytical mind, the mind that rationalizes, calculates, dreams, solves and creates. This is the part of the mind that we want to be working at 100% capacity, 100% of the time. What hinders achieving this 100% level of operation is called the reactive mind.
The reactive mind is the subconscious part of our mind that acts without our permission. It takes control on a stimulus-response basis, acting as a self-defense mechanism gone awry. The reactive mind thinks in identities, that is to say it cannot differentiate between a current situation and a past painful experience. It collapses the two, giving us commands to operate off of that have little or no basis in current reality.
The analytical mind goes through existence recording diligently until something happens that causes the reactive mind to take over. The cause could be an accident, heavy drowsiness, emotional shock or many other combinations of painful experiences. Suddenly the reactive mind begins recording everything that is occurring around you during the painful incident: all sounds, scents, sights and feelings.
Later in life, when you encounter a situation similar to the original recording made, the reactive mind once again takes over and begins to feed you data about how to act and respond -- based on information from a totally different incident in the past!
In the opening pages of Dianetics, L. Ron Hubbard wrote, Dianetics is no solemn adventure. For all that it has to do with suffering and loss, its end is always laughter, so foolish, so misinterpreted were the things which caused the woe.
Herein lies the crux of Dianetics success. According to Dianetics practitioners, those things that hold you back, the feeling that you just can t shake, the mistakes that you can t help but make again and again -- the simple reasons for these and answers to many other mysteries about yourself and your mind can be discovered through the use of Dianetics technology. Through years of research Hubbard discovered the source of personal stress, anxiety and depression and then developed carefully tested procedures to desensitize and erase the negative content stored in the reactive mind -- thus freeing up your ability to act solely in the here and now and off of good data stored in the analytical mind, free from the chains of stress.
In reality, the only way to realize Dianetics workability is to use it -- pair up with someone and apply the techniques. It s easy. Hubbard's bestseller has helped millions, and it should be read and used by all who are searching for a true understanding of the mind and a solution to such problems as self-doubt, stress, anxiety and depression. Dianetics is available in bookstores everywhere.
DIANETICS COULD BE ANSWER TO STRESS
Chronically stressed children are far more likely to have asthma attacks than less-stressed children, experts have found. Researchers followed a group of 90 asthma child patients in Glasgow, Scotland aged between six and 13-years old for 18 months, noting when they had attacks, and finding out about the stressful events in their lives.
The study, carried out by the University of Helsinki in Finland, was published in the Lancet Medical Journal and also found that even the children of excessively anxious parents have been found to be more likely to develop asthma.
More than 5 million children in America suffer from asthma, the most prevalent chronic condition in children. The estimated annual cost of treating asthma in children under 18 years of age is $3.2 billion.
Asthma attacks can be very frightening for children. It s the scariest thing, not being able to breathe, said Kaye Conley, who suffered severe asthma attacks as a child. She was covered in eczema and an acute asthmatic from the age of three. It s terrifying when you can t breathe, said Kaye. You know once you stop breathing, you re gone.
It has long been suspected that kids with asthma may be exposed to more things in their environment that set off their asthma than they are aware of. It could be emotional stress or just something in the environment that triggers an old memory of a painful incident.
Some organs of the body the skin, lungs and stomach, heart, glands and intestines, are especially sensitive to changes in the emotions. You ve probably experienced your heart beating fast when you get anxious. Emotional upsets or memories of painful incidents can affect these organs and create physical symptoms.
In the best-selling book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, L. Ron Hubbard explains what psychosomatic ailments are and how they come about. Psycho refers to the body, says Hubbard in Dianetics. Psychosomatic means the mind is making the body ill. Handling the stress and emotion My parents were constantly looking for something that would alleviate my asthma attacks, said Kaye. We tried every possible treatment known with no result. The doctors assigned the attacks to stress caused by her school-work so although she was a good student, Kaye left school at 15. Her mother was convinced that there had to be an underlying cause to the condition. She felt strongly that if a child had a good home, was loved and well cared for, she should not have constant health problems as Kaye did. When Kaye was 19 her mother was introduced to Dianetics and felt she had finally found the answer. The mechanism by which the mind is able to cause a physical disability, predispose the body to an illness or perpetuate sickness, is a simple thing, says Hubbard. Mrs. Conley arranged for Kaye to have some Dianetics counseling right away.
It was an amazing experience, said Kaye. I went back into my past and we found the incident that was causing the asthma and the eczema. I experienced all those emotions of terror the feeling of being slowly closed in, not being able to breathe and knowing I was going to die. We worked through the incident and it all went away. for good!
I wish I could have had Dianetics when I was much younger, says Kaye. Once I had that counseling session it was all gone.
It was a tremendous relief to Kaye to be able to live a normal life and not have that fear in the back of her mind all the time. For months she still carried her inhaler, just in case the attacks would start again.
They never did.
