What is Greatness?

One of my favorite quotes from L. Ron Hubbard is the short article "What is Greatness?".

It starts out with:

The hardest task one can have is to continue
to love his fellows despite all reasons he
should not. And the true sign of sanity and
greatness is to so continue. For the one who
can achieve this, there is abundant hope.
For those who cannot, there is only sorrow,
hatred and despair. And these are not the
things of which greatness or sanity or
happiness are made.

It is indeed the hardest task. When those you trusted have betrayed you. When those you counted as friends are dragging your good name through the mud. At times like that it becomes very hard to still love your fellow man, but it can be done.

Here is the full quote: What is Greatness?

Past Lives - Easy to Prove

The fact that one has lived before this life becomes very clear after a person has had Scientology Auditing. How long it takes a person to recall some past-life experience varies depending on the individual. Of course, no one insists that a person recalls a previous existence, it just happens as part of increasing ones spiritual awareness.

Because the idea of having lived before has been suppressed in the western world for thousands of years, when people a past life they will usually shy away from the memory or think it is from a movie or something they dreamed up from a book they read. But despite this. it is possible to recall past-lives without auditing, and there have been numerous such cases in the past (such as the Bridey Murphy case). Where the idea hasn't been suppressed for so long, reincarnation is a common idea. For example, it is part of most eastern religions.

So when a young boy in the USA starts to remember his life and death as a pilot during WWII, it doesn't really surprise me, but perhaps it will be of interest to you. Here is the video:

If you are reading this then you are mentally ill

Well according to psychiatrists you are.

Believe it or not, psychiatrists are planning to add a new disease to the next edition of their "Bible", the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM V) and that disease is ... "Internet addiction".

What this means is that you are sick and need psychiatric drugs. So get out your wallet or your medical insurance and prepare to cough up dough so they can medicate you for the rest of your life.

Here is the full story: If you're reading this you're "sick, sick, sick"
