What do Scientologists Believe?

hijabilicious asked:
Could you tell me what scientologists believe in? I tried to look it up but it sounds really complicating, and what happens to a person who reaches the clear-level? could you please explain in a non-complicated way? thnx beforehand

Thanks for the question.

The simplest one liner is: Scientologists believe that each person is a spiritual being who has abilities that are way more than anyone ever thought and he or she thinks they can regain these abilities through the methods discovered in Scientology.

There is a lot more to it, but that is the simplest one-sentence explanation I could come up with.

The "basic principles" section of the Scientology web site says:
"It comprises a vast body of knowledge extending from certain fundamental truths, and prime among those truths: Man is a spiritual being endowed with abilities well beyond those which he normally envisions. He is not only able to solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness, but he can achieve new states of awareness he may never have dreamed possible"
What is Clear? The simplest one-sentence explanation I can give you is: A Clear is someone who has had the negative part of his mind cleared up so that he or she can live life to the fullest.

Again, there is a lot more to it. The section of the Scientology web site that deals with the Clear says:

A Clear is free with his emotions. He can think for himself. ... Clears are self-confident, happy and generally successful in both careers and interpersonal relationships. It is a highly desirable state for any individual and is attainable by virtually anyone. In fact, thousands upon thousands of people have achieved the state of Clear ...
Does that help?
