Happy Birthday L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard
Well, today is the day. The man himself, the dude who started it all, was born this day in 1911.

Whenever I finish something in Scientology, be it auditing or training, I write a success story so I can share the wins and gains I've had with others. Very often, as I write down my successes, I realize that my tremendous gains all came about because of the work of one man! Amazing.

Now Ron himself would probably tell me that he couldn't have done it without help. In fact, in his famous article "Keeping Scientology Working" he says, "The contributions that were worthwhile in this period of forming the technology were help in the form of friendship, of defense, of organization, of dissemination, of applicaiton, of advices on results and of finance. These were great contributions and were and are appreciated. Many thousands contributed in this way and made us what we are."

But, nevertheless, it was Ron himself who made the discoveries of Dianetics and Scientology and it was Ron who developed the technology of spiritual freedom that we benefit from today.

Here is one of my favorite quotes from Ron:

"I have lived no cloistered life
and hold in contempt the
wise man who has not lived
and the scholar who will not share.

"There have been many wiser men than I,
but few have traveled as much road.

"I have seen life from the
top down and the bottom up.
I know how it looks both ways.
And I know there is wisdom
and there is hope."

L. Ron Hubbard
