New Year's Wishes

Another briefing, this time with LRH's message to all those who attended the 1976 New Years celebration. I thought you'd like to see what he said.
"As you receive this message I will be seeing out the old year on post and clearing off the runway for 1976. Forgive me for not celebrating with you tonight. My own celebration will be when my job of creating this space for you is complete. Last year we said 'we're moving in'. This year we are saying 'we're here, we're in and we're making it!'
"This was the year we made Scientology familiar to the broad public of the world. And we delivered Scientology tech in the greatest abundance ever. This is the year you will bring with certainty of purpose, sanity and freedom to all mankind.
"Are you with me????????"

So You Want an Ideal Org

It's one thing to say that having an Ideal Org is a good thing, and another to actually know it and go about creating an Ideal Org. But let's look at it from a completely first dynamic perspective.
Let's say all you really want is to go up the Bridge, make it to Clear and be happy. If you find it at all hard because you still have life's barriers, problems and counter-effort against what you are trying to accomplish--which is the way it actually is--you'll find that having an Ideal Org right in the neighborhood changes all that. Imagine having 20 or 30 auditors all there, waiting to take you in session. Imagine a team of 100 or 200 staff at your service to assist you in making it. Imagine going to an event where there are 1000 people all working for the same goal and you are now part of a powerful local force that can make it happen.
The bottom line is that everything you are trying to handle, every barrier you run into, every stop along the way, is totally handled by having an Ideal Org right here in Kansas City.
So hop aboard, be part of the movement, put your shoulder to the wheel, because this train is going down those tracks and the last stop is the Ideal Org!

Christmas and LRH

I got another briefing about LRH and what he was doing at Christmas time.
In 1980 he was studying "the man on the street, newspapers and magazines to pinpoint society's precise condition. And he exemplified how every Scientologist should apply the tech every moment of the day. He audited 6 sessions daily, and in between he wrote, alternating his auditing and writing. And of course he still found time to give assists to people he encountered in the community when he was out on the beach jogging.
"It was at this time that LRH provided two gifts to mankind--the Success Through Communication Course, and The Way to Happiness, which he called "gentle oil spread upon the raging sea." He says that if all Scientologists applied just these two tools alone--giving others the ability to communicate and a way to happiness--they could change this whole civilization in every land.
"And so on December 25th, 1980, LRH sat down to a traditional Christmas dinner of turkey with all the trimmings, and then went to his desk and wrote the following. It is as applicable today as it was then:
"This is a pretty barbaric society. We have new tech. We know what we are doing. And we are, little by little and person by person, changing this society for the better.
"Somebody used to keep a record of the things in Scientology that were being picked up by the society at large and used. Most of the time they don't give credit. But the items exist. In the past thirty years it has become an impressive list. Currently even the psychologists are busy reporting coming back to life after being dead.
"We are having an effect upon the societies of the world.
"And that's why I admire you. You are in there pitching, doing your jobs. I know it is sometimes rough, I feel for you. But above all, in the midst of a failing society, you are making your weight felt.
"I am very glad that you are there. I am glad you are my friend.
"Good luck in this year that is coming. It is a year that is in your hands. I have every confidence you will do well in it. The future is ours."

Christmas Peace

Got a briefing with an interesting quote from LRH, from a lecture in October 1954 called Axioms of Dianetics.
"Only when some violent politician can break down this knowledge that we all have amongst ourselves that we are all human beings...can you get anybody to fire a gun.
"All wars have to start with the assumption that is given to the basic populace that they are not fighting the human race. All all wars stop when they realize at length that they're fighting the human race.
"It's curious, isn't it? Their fourth dynamics come to life. Do you know that they had the awfullest time trying to keep World War I going? One particular Christmas they started singing the same hymns on both sides of no man's land, you know. And the next thing you know, why, people were walking around in no man's land. The next thing you know there wasn't a machine gun going for hundreds of miles. And the war almost stopped."

It was then pointed out that they trusted each other for a while, as LRH said, "On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth."

Just thought I'd share....

Crowd Reaction

Gilligan is working the crowd:But it's easy to get distracted by the coconuts:

Moving Past Gilligan



Well, it's been a while since Gilligan's Island and I want to post the last of the photos.
Coming up the 11th is the Silent Auction for the Ideal Org. Contact the org for the data. It's actually a great way to do double Christmas shopping: you can get a great gift for someone while also making a great gift to the Ideal Org. Double Whammy!

Thanksgiving and Gilligan


Thanksgiving was everything we expected with a number of staff and public enjoying good eats, good times, good fellowship. We had pies and turkey, ham and mashed potatoes, more pies and green beans, ooey-gooey butter cake and more pie. Yep, great Thanksgiving!
Oh, but you want to know more about Gilligan, right? Well, here's another photo from the all-star presentation of Gilligans Island....ie. Gilligan's Ideal Org: Mrs. Howell looks worried, Mary Ann seems concerned, but the Professor stands calmly in the background, knowing we'll make our Ideal Org.

More Gilligan's Island



So here's the latest. The event was a complete success and everyone was happy. Mr. and Mrs. Howell, Ginger and MaryAnn were happy with the Ideal Org fund-raiser results, as you can see from this photo. You'll probably be wanting to know more about it so stay tuned!

Thanksgiving

As is usual for Kansas City Org, we will be having Thanksgiving dinner. This is good for those who are not able to make it to family dinners due to time and distance, or those who don't have family around to have Thanksgiving with. It is also for all those who are using the holidays to continue to advance yourselves by getting up the Bridge, going in session and going on course.
All in all, it is always one of the best Thanksgiving dinners around with turkeys roasted by John, pies baked by Maggie, Ted's ooey-gooey butter cake and a host of other delectable contributions to a Thanksgiving feast that leaves no one with room for seconds despite lots of leftovers!
So plan on making our Thanksgiving dinner one of your stops for this holiday and spend part of the day on course or in session to make it really count.

Coming Up

Coming up, November 20th....Gilligan's Island.
Yep, the OT Committee has done it again. A new dramatization of an old show.
Guess who is Gilligan!
Contact the org for the specifics. You will laugh your head off! You'll split a gut! You will enjoy yourself....and all in the name of the Ideal Org.
Be there!

Roots

Just a bit of Kansas City Org history.
If you want to trace our roots back to the earliest presence in the Kansas City area, look back to October of 1950, when L. Ron Hubbard lectured at the Music Hall of the Kansas City Municipal Auditorium and later at the Kansas City Little Theatre.
These lectures took place 60 years ago on October 21st with a public lecture entitled "Introduction to Dianetics" and then four lectures on October 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th. These lectures were "A Summary of Standard Procedure", "Clarification of Operation", "Types of Cases and Method of Resolving Them" and "Restarting or Reopening Stalled Cases".
Pretty interesting, eh?!

Fall Fun Festival


Just completed the Fall Fun Festival. It was a blast for everyone, starting with the moonwalk bouncing house to the great barbecue, the Vesuvius fire dancers to the Idealorgettes. Who are the Idealorgettes, you ask?! I'l show you:

They really got the crowd going and kicked off a rousing event to move us that much closer to the Ideal Org. I'll get more photos up as I get them and you will see how much fun we really did have.
Pay attention because there's more to come. With Halloween coming up, there are some costume competitions in the very near future!

Dianetics Anew

Sometimes we have to be reminded that Dianetics is new news. Sometimes it's good to take a step back and see the subject through new eyes, with a fresh perspective.
I have had that opportunity recently as I have been helping out in the Basic Course Room, supervising new public on the new Dianetics course. My excitement about Dianetics has been revitalized supervising these new public. The wins they are having, even just reading the book and understanding what has been ruining their lives, has rehabilitated my own wins with Dianetics. I can see, with a fresh look, the power of discovery in knowing the source of one's illness and irrationality. And I am excited. Excited to see the realizations and wins of those new to Dianetics. Excited to be involved with Dianetics in helping people become truly happy. Excited to see the new world that awaits us, a world without war, insanity or crime.
I can hardly wait until the auditing begins, when those learning to audit gain the reality of what can be done about the mind!
Fireworks are about to happen!

Life Improvement

Just had to jot a quick note about the new Life Improvement Courses. They are fantastic and have been very popular with everyone -- new and old Scientologists. One that seems to attract a lot of students is the one on How to Achieve Self-Confidence. But the biggest draw has been How to Get Motivated. Hmmmm. Perhaps a common difficulty?! Well, whatever the case, there is the solution!

Auditor's Day and More

Auditor's Day this year was celebrated last weekend. We had a good turnout and all auditors were recognized. This year, with all types of auditors recognized, we had over 60 active auditors working to change conditions in their environment by helping people with the technology of Dianetics and Scientology.
This was just a kick-off for more to come!
There are some upcoming events you will want to know about so stay in touch with the staff. You won't want to miss some of these activities planned by the OT Committee.
We have also gotten some more staff aboard, a couple new staff as well as a couple who had been on staff before who were able to return and add their talents again. Welcome to these staff, old and new!

Incredible Basics Win

A recent win from studying the Basics came in:
"I fell off the Bridge in 1994 after my husband and I left Detroit to care for my mom and dad who were very ill. Soon after I became very ill with a serious lung cancer that had me on oxygen and I aged 10-15 years in a very short time.
"When the Basics and Congresses were released, the Detroit Org called me and encouraged us to get these materials as the data would help. We purchased all Basics and Congresses and immediately started studying them. My husband completed listening to all Congresses and I was making steady progress with the Basics Extension Course. Our goal was to do whatever was necessary to get back on The Bridge. My stable datum that I was thinking with was "theta is senior to MEST".
"Since I couldn't drive long distances, a friend dropped me off at a motel close to the org so that I could get onto an assist program in between sessions until my folders were back from Flag with a detailed program including flattening my Objectives from 20 years ago. A huge ridge blew and I looked 10 years younger and attested to them on Ron's birthday. My auditor at the org continued to audit me on NED and I've had remarkable wins. Floating TAs occurred on more than one occasion, my appearance changed, I'm walking up stairs with minimal effort and I drive myself to Detroit for two weeks every month for auditing.
"The Basics are powerful and do revitalize. After auditing many pcs up the Bridge myself, I'm now the pc and the Basics allowed me to have huge wins as all of the data is detailed and available in such an easy format that you know it's true and the wins can be achieved.
"I know I'll take the Basics data with me wherever I go from here on out and the future is very bright indeed."

Volunteer Ministers in Haiti

It has been known that a lot of Volunteer Ministers have been helping out in Haiti. One of those VMs was here in KC last night to brief everyone on what it was like working there and to ask for your continued help.
Here' a link to a report on the VM's work. The blonde VM is the one who was here speaking. She gave a very detailed account of what they were running into on site and it was quite moving.
So many people from around the world (not just VMs) have been helping out but there's still much more to be done.

Advanced Clinical Courses Released

If you attended the most recent event or kept up on the latest goings on you have seen the incredible new release - all of the lectures from the Advanced Clinical Courses and Professional Course lectures! This totals over 1000 additional lectures and completes the task of getting the full chronological materials available for everyone!
Many are already starting on study of these and here is a win from one of those students:

"I have completed the First International Congress of Dianeticists and Scientologists. I am also on the second binder of lectures on the 1st American Advanced Clinical Course. First off, let me put in a quick comment about the materials themselves.
"When the boxes arrived at my house, I had my first cognition: man has been looking for the answers of the universe for thousands of years, and here they are in my living room. It was quite a calming realization. Next time someone asks where the answers are, I'll say, "Oh, I have them in my living room."
"In the International Congress LRH lays out the latest discoveries for the public, and does a wonderful job getting you to have a taste of the material, but believe me--although it is complete--it is just a taste. The Advanced Clinical Course is where it happens. The wins so far are phenomenal. For those who have completed the Basics, let me give you a stable datum:
"This is not the Basics. This is another stratosphere. But don't be scared. It is not a stratosphere of complexity--it is a stratosphere of simplicity.
"One win, several days ago I saw a Scientologist friend walking with a cane and limping in tremendous pain. His body is in the 70's. I asked him if I could give him a session. He declined, saying his wife was giving him assists and taking him to the doctor, and getting his medications. I let it go by. I read that LRH with this material could handle a cripple in a few minutes. Again, I needed some mass. So, I called my friend and asked if I could give him a session. Once again he declined. Well, I figured that I hadn't gotten my point across so I said, "when you want to blow the thing and get rid of the cane--let me know. I mean when you want to blow it!" He seemed quite taken aback and then said, "I want to blow it now, this pain is killing me. Come on over." As promised, I gave him a quick session and the thing blew to VGIs. Cane gone, walking, talking and cognitions galore. He was in shock, "I'm fine, it's better, it's fine, and I'm walking. Maybe you can see me tomorrow." "No problem," I said.
"Here is the point--from the course, I knew 100% what to do and what was going to happen. The pc said exactly what LRH said the pc would say and did exactly what LRH said he would do. That is a 1st ACC material in action. I didn't have a meter, just helped him to get comfortable for the session and took care of business.
"You want to know what all this release is about -- that's what it is about: miracles. Thank you to RTC for restoring the materials so that we now have our religion. Thank you to LRH for laying out the tech for us. P.D.

More to come......

Incredible Dianetics Win

Here's an incredible Dianetics win, just in:


When I was a kid, my brother was who I always looked up to. He was extremely intelligent, he had genius IQ, but never bragged about it. He was very friendly and cared about everyone. On top of that, he was good looking and popular. We all knew he was going to succeed when he grew up. He was the type that would do great things, that is, until he went to war in Desert Storm. None of us knew exactly what happened to him after that.


But after the family's pained waiting and worrying about him ever coming back, when he finally did come home, he was never again the carefree brother I knew. He went to the University of Washington and got plenty of degrees, from the outside you could say he was “successful”, but that spark of life had gone from his eyes. He was depressed and got worse year by year, which greatly saddened me. Despite our efforts, he never spoke about it and after a while, we stopped asking. It was this way for years and years.


Then, right before Christmas, he and his daughter moved in with me. He was a mess, going through a divorce, money was tough and you could tell his life was nothing like he wanted it to be. I had tried to disseminate to him a long time ago but he was never interested or never found the time, etc...., but this time I knew I had to at least try again. I told him about Dianetics and showed him the dvd. He was very skeptical but he agreed to at least give it a try.


He signed up for the Dianetics Seminar and I remember the first day he went in session. He contacted an incident right away but kept getting interrupted by a strange ringing sound that he kept hearing in the room. When he noticed that no one else was hearing this besides him, he realized that this was the sound in his engram from an incident when he had a grenade concussion in the war. He had been badly injured from it, but despite this, he had to continue fighting as there was no time to stop in the middle of the combat. They gave him drugs to “keep him going” which had resulted in a near two week engram with tons of aberrative commands in between. He ran it all out right there and the ringing stopped completely along with a huge burden which seemed to have been lifted from him.


He was so blown away that he wanted to go in right away the next day. This time he contacted a surgery that he had. He was having a really hard time on this one and kept getting tired until he realized that he was hearing the words “wake up, wake up” over and over in his head. He realized that this was the phrase that the doctor kept saying to him, it seemed like he had run it out but then the incident did not lift! No new data was coming up until....he realized that there was an earlier similar incident and despite the fact that he never believed in “past life stuff” before, he suddenly knew without a single doubt that he had lived before, recalling with exact detail the incident where someone was telling him hysterically to “wake up” when he never did.


We were crying and laughing together when he told me all of this. It all made sense as when he was a kid, I would try to wake him up and he would get very upset, but that had all gone away. Now he is totally himself again, up-tone and excited about life, like he was when he was younger! Immediately after this he pulled in an awesome job making tons of money.


Just the other day he came up to me and said he is going to go Clear and that even though he got this new job, he decided he wants to be a professional Dianetics Auditor and join staff! Dianetics got my brother on the Bridge and after so long trying to help him, he is now a Scientologist. What a miracle for Christmas, LRH was right, we hold the true spirit of Christmas, giving to our fellow man and saving beings! Thank you COB for getting the tech pure so he could have these wins! And thank you so much LRH for giving me my brother back! S.R.

New Year's Event

The New Year's event was everything I expected and more. There were several points in the presentation where I felt quite moved by the amount of positive effects we are creating around the world. Most significant were the presentations on the Volunteer Ministers and Applied Scholastics.
If you weren't able to attend at any of the locations we had set up (several around the midwest), contact us for a special showing in the org.
The releases were absolutely spectacular! Even knowing what was coming, I was completely floored by the magnitude of the accomplishment!
