By Michael Moore,  President APIS,

There has been so much emphasis on the past of late. Perhaps it is time to look at the future and what it may bring. In fact the future will bring whatever we put there to eventuate. If we put there the past, then we will get more of the past. If we put there something different. Some time ago I wrote a short article entitled, ‘The Future lies in the Future.’ Here is that article revised and updated.

A silly little phrase, the future still lies in the future. But it is very true. And the creation of the future lies in the present. What we do here and now will determine the sort of future we have.

So what sort of future do we want to have?

I believe that most people would like to have a future where it is safe to come back. Where there is sanity and peace on earth. Where children are taught to be responsible for themselves and to select a code of ethics and stick by it.

I believe that most people would like to have a world in which there is no longer the vested interest in war and conflict because people are educated enough and higher toned enough not to desire such things in order to feel safe and enjoy life.

I believe that most people would like to have a world in which all of us, as humanity, are high toned enough to be responsible for the environment. Where we care for the other dynamics just as much as we care for our own.

I believe that most people would like to have a world in which there are higher motivations than power and money. Such motivations might be duty and caring for others.

I believe that most people would like a future where we can all BE. Where going clear and OT is a common enough thing and where the bridge is an accepted fact and people are progressing steadily along it.

But how do we get such a future?

Although it may require a lot of work, as the counter intention to such a world is high and visibly in charge it would seem, it is not as difficult as it might appear. The heavy drape or curtain is held by small, much lighter rings. Remove the rings and the drape falls away. The ‘heaviness’ of the world’s problems and issues is held simply by the intentions of a few beings with which others are in agreement through ignorance and apathy driven by past experiences and little education in the realities of life.

So how can we change this?

Reality is agreement. The more agreement there is the more real something becomes. The MEST universe, for example, has more agreement than you can throw a stick at and it is certainly persisting and is more real to most people than their own beingness. The current agreement for the future for this planet is not of the best. It currently lies in irresponsibility and not-is-ness. The reality of an individual’s beingness is being buried in the enforced reality of MEST.

The lower down the tone scale an individual is the less real the upper levels of the tone scale are going to be for that individual. The further down he goes the less future he mocks up expecting it to be done for him. Who do you want mocking up your future?

He has to be dug out.

While the culture is driving him down the tone scale to spectatorism and a no responsibility case, we have to, somehow, insert a wedge into a crack in that culture to let some light in and to show that there is something else available.

Agreement first as to what future is wanted is a first step. How far into the future are we willing to mock up? 5 years? 10 years? 50 years? 1,000 years?

Is the future we want as described above in the first few paragraphs of this article?

If so some agreement is needed to put it there. The more agreement we have the more real that future will become real.

How do we advance this agreement?

It was once said, the way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Of course we don’t propose you eat an elephant but the principle is sound. How did Dianetics and Scientology expand so much in the very early days? People bought the book ‘Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health’ and started using it. Small groups formed up and people started running engrams on each other.

So how do we do this today?

A grass roots movement. Setting up a small group. Does not have to be large or massive two or three people to start with. LRH said:

People don’t bite. Ask them over to a sociable evening to discuss forming a mental health group. When they get there, don’t ask them to join. Just elect them as officers. Get them to agree on future meetings and the programs. Assume they want to know more about Scientology. Explain Scientology offhandedly as though it’s sort of strange they don’t know and get on with group organization and business. Don’t run Decisional Processing on them. Assume they’ve decided and lo! You’ve got a group.”

People are happy these days, even more so, to have someone tell them what to do.

“Groups fail to form in absence of purpose. People fail to join in absence of purpose they can understand. Mock up the purpose. Invite in the people. Form up a program around the purpose and away you go.

“If you don’t have one, it’s because you’ve been trying to explain Scientology to people and so get them to join. Just get them to join and let Scientology soak in.

“A group is fun.

“A group is communication.

“A group is society.”

In sales one is told to sell the sizzle, not the steak. People are now at a point where they expect sensation, where they are spectators and a culture where ‘it is all done for them’. Utilize that.

1. Entice them to look, the sizzle not the steak remember? The Dissemination Formula is still an excellent entrance point for face to face meetings.

2. Educate them. In small bites perhaps. Small datum that can be assimilated and is on their reality level. Do some TRs or clear an engram.

3. Offer some hope of beingness. Demonstrate and show they can be causative.

4. For existing scientologists, showing an enlightening comparison between the on source groups in the Field and the changed altered original texts by Ron Hubbard is another.

So why should we do this? Who cares about other people? As long as we are ok and have gone free what difference does it make?

It makes all the difference in the world. We have all heard the phase, “No man is an island.” All this means is that there is more than one dynamic. Any individual who is only first dynamic orientated is going to end up in trouble. The dynamic of life is split into eight parts. Only operating on one part is going to result in a reduced ability to survive well as only one eighth of survival is being attended to.

And we don’t want that do we?

So lets start looking at the future. Ask yourself the question. What do you want to be there in 10, 15, 20 years time?

“AN INDIVIDUAL IS AS HAPPY AS HE CAN PERCEIVE SURVIVAL POTENTIALS IN THE FUTURE.” —Axiom 166 The Axioms of Dianetics.

Let’s postulate and perceive some survival potentials for the future.

Michael, excellent! I agree, we should put attention in creating things and that where you, or I, or whoever puts the attention on is what he or she will get. Having a purpose – such as deliver standard tech to others and contribute to the creation of groups – is one purpose that I am following and I join forces with you. Thank you for the communication.

By the way, the future is really sizzling for us down here in Oz! Two Clears in one weekend and I am getting tremendous wins on some really smooth NOTs auditing. I won’t mention the auditors name as Jim might get a big head.

Communication

“As the only crime in the universe seems to be to communicate, and as the only saving grace of an awareness of awareness unit is to communicate, we can readily understand that an entanglement of communication is certain to result. What we should understand – and much more happily – is that it can now be resolved.”
