 Outside of the Church of Scientology there is now the Free Scientology World.  This is a world in which scientology is studied, used and practiced freely in many variations and forms without let or hindrance. A free Scientology world is not a world free from Scientology.  Instead it is a world where one is not bound to any church but is free to be a scientologist. This is an opportunity to create a new world.

This raises ones responsibility level as there is no one behind you tapping you on the shoulder and reminding you to stay on track and on source, apply ethics and conditions and continue up the bridge. There is only the tech, you and the agreements you hold.

Ron said, “There is a basic rule that a psychotic person is concerned with the past, a neurotic person is barely able to keep up with the present, and a sane person is concerned with the future.”

- Essay, Past, Present and Future

It is no accident that low on the tone scale the concern is with the past, midway with the present at further up the tone scale ones concern is with putting a future there. 

This does not mean that one should ignore the past and this is the choice a free scientologist has.  He or she can be concerned with the past, operating right now in the future or busy mocking up and creating the future.

However, although it can be fruitful under certain circumstances to look at the past, one must keep in mind the past cannot be changed into something different.  Of course one can as-is the past, make it disappear if viewed thoroughly enough.  One can remove any trauma that might be associated with past events.  But one cannot change the past events to different events.  The present is the moment here and now. It is the operational tool to change what is and what can be or will be. It is the demonstration of change and the future is what can be changed. 

Everyone develops a goal when they first cognite on or realise the value of Scientology. Whether it is to become an auditor or to get up to OT or to train on the SHSBC or just to enjoy a more fulfilling life. What happens to these goals?  Where do they go?  How many people actually achieve their goals?  How many goals are sidelined, thwarted or even stopped, in favor of ‘some other, more important’ goal fostered off on the individual? And what can an individual do about it?

An individual can rail against it of course.  He can complain and point, “Look what happened to me!”  He can continue to vilify and expose the existing church for what we all know it to be. 

He can continue to look into the past and remember past events and past goals long gone. He can even decide to continue to put the past into the future. Or, he can take a different tack, and look to the future instead for a change. 

Have you noticed? There is something about the future that is not generally noticed very much. It is always there. It does not go away. And then, there is an awful lot of it. It just goes on and on. It just never ends.

It is like an endless bank account.  You can use it up, you can waste it, you can do all sorts of things with it, and it just continues to be there. It is the epitome of infinity. Like a big empty space you can put things in.  And never fill up.

And we all have a future.  What it is depends solely on what we put into it. 

Why not put something you like into it? 

Such as a previous goal that you have always wanted, for example.

 “As Man all too easily specializes in stops he tends to stress what SHOULDN'T be done. While this enters into it, remember that it's a STOP.

STOPS ALL OCCUR BECAUSE OF FAILED PURPOSES.

BEHIND EVERY STOP THERE IS A FAILED PURPOSE.

A stuck picture or a motionless org are similar. Each has behind it a failed purpose.

THERE IS A LAW ABOUT THIS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO RESTORE LIFE AND ACTION IS TO REKINDLE THE FAILED PURPOSE. THE STOPS WILL AT ONCE BLOW.”  OT Orgs Policy Letter

This is the stuff of miracles and applies on the third dynamic just as much as the first.  Scientology as a whole encountered a massive stop. Many individuals encountered a stop of one kind or another. But like all stops, it is lesser than the purpose and subject to purpose.  I believe that rekindling the purpose of scientology, by mocking up and creating the future we want in the future, will blow any and all stops to the future of scientology. We have the technology to change conditions including:

Persistence: Senior Survival

Affluence Attainment:  Doing what has been successful rather than ‘new untried things’

As has been expressed, pouring the coals on the purpose and creating or mocking up the future we want.

This is the stuff of miracles. The past is dead and cannot be changed.  The present is our tool; our opportunity to change the future and the future is where scientology exists. 

Buddha said that no matter how hard the past, you can always beginning again and Ron pointed out that life is in you today and you make your own tomorrow.

Let’s make a new tomorrow!

I have had the great fortune to get ALOT of auditing in the last couple of years and I don't have much attention anymore on the past. As-ising is a beautiful thing and is true magic.

I am most interested in the future and seeing that Scientology is stably being practised.

Just as a marriage can go bad so can a third dynamic, but that doesn't mean we throw it out. It just means we get better at it.I know I am better player now-still far from perfect, I'm sure.

Michael, absolutely superb, awe-inspiring post. A milestone essay to reflect upon again and again! I am currently thoroughly engrossed in creating a brand new avenue of futures for myself and those I love, and compute with more sanity and efficiency than ever before. With absolutely no available time being wasted, or for idleness, life has never been more exciting than it is for me right now. As Ron phrased it so simply, eloquently; " Sanity--the computation of futures."

Further up the line,I intend to do a write up of this enormous shift in the focus of my life purposes, and how that plays out across the Dynamics and the ripple effects therefrom.

What a great time to Be, Do & Have!

Thank you again! And thank you Lana, for your nuggety persistence! As a stalwart, you are an inspiration. and often in my thoughts. Will drop in again soon.

ML, Calvin.

That's a wonderfully high-tone post, full of space and freedom.

Creating a world, a universe or a game is one of the inherent rights of theta. We don't need anyone's "authorisation" to do it.

What a great article.

I am so impressed with the communication and writing abilities of many of the contributors to this blog. What is even more impressive is the heart that is on display in an article like this and numerous others.

The best minds of Scientology really have, for the most part, made their way out of the church and are showing up in the Independent Scientology field.

I have learned that a surprise, of which disappointment is a kind, comes about because I either made a false estimation or no estimation. In many cases I had simply failed to look. This handled a lot of charge I had on disappointments.
This point corrected will give a future with much less disappointments and can make it safe to invest in future.

Love this. You know, we all come back. So the future IS important. What we create here and now will be the future we and our kids come back to. That's soooooo real to me as a past lifer with kids who are past lifers. What we create IS the future.

I agree! The best revenge is to live well and let nothing stop you from attaining your goal of going up the Bridge and helping others to do so FREE FROM SUPPRESSION!!! I just had a wonderful experience of being audited on my next Bridge action right in my own home by a Class VIII totally AWSOME Independent Scientology Auditor, in the new auditing room I mocked up within 24 hours of returning from my first visit to a fabulous Independent Scientology Center in Idaho. There is nothing like REKINDLING a failed purpose to jump start your life and kick it into high gear! GO I-Scientology!!! - Faith Rose

Thanks for all the fine comments folks. The important thing is that we have a fantastic opportunity to change the world for the better. by focusing our attention on what we want rather than what we have had. Life is in you today and you make your own tomorrow Ron said.

Hello Michael,
I really liked this post.

When the Present Time is the stage we work in, there is yet another tool of importance: good control = harmonious alignment.

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.”
