As a fitting finale to the Scientology Congresses, L. Ron Hubbard’s last came right from the topmost level. It was the breakthrough that would lead to the development of the Clearing Course, the Grade Chart and the Organizing Board. It was a discovery that embracive, that basic—because it is Basic Purpose. As he reveals, “Every engram we have explored, every piece of black mass, every ridge, every white-burning fire, every everything that went on in the mind comes about because of a change or alteration in a person’s Basic Purpose.” And that’s just the beginning of what Mr. Hubbard discovered, for when you hear his lecture, Basic Purpose, you’ll have a whole new understanding of what “Know Thyself” really means. Yet beyond all this discovery was generating, in terms of faster clearing in greater numbers, there’s another reason this was called the Clearing Success Congress. For if you’ve ever wondered how it all fits together—the technology, the organizations, the combined force of Scientologists, the answers are all here. From the landmark lecture on the pivotal role of Scientology Organizations in driving planetary clearing, Your Scientology Orgs and What They Do for You, to his exact program on how to make it a reality—World Clearing and You. Here, then, is L. Ron Hubbard’s final Congress and the road map to a Cleared Planet.Read More
All of these things are pertinent. Organizations are dry stuff. Administration is dry stuff. Communication lines have apparently very little to do with whether or not you get Clear. But from where I sit, I would be so entangled continuously with everything else that we would never get the job done if it weren’t for these things. So to me they loom very important. And to you they should loom important that the technology, when developed, arrives and stays in a pure and decent state and is applicable and usable. And that’s the only thing we’re trying to do. —L. Ron Hubbard
As a fitting finale to the Scientology Congresses, L. Ron Hubbard’s last came right from the topmost level.
The subject was World Clearing. The underlying principle was basic purpose. And within his Saint Hill research room, Mr. Hubbard was making seven-league strides. Specifically, he had been pushing cases to Clear with a breakthrough factor underlying aberration:
“Every engram that we have explored, every piece of black mass, every ridge, every white-burning fire, every everything that went on in the mind, comes about because of a change or alteration in a person’s basic purpose.”
And with precision processes and exact procedures founded on just that principle, he was shattering cases and intensively instructing Saint Hill Special Briefing Course students in the particulars.
Yet however miraculous that technology, with a planetary population in the billions, World Clearing by “two auditing chairs apiece simultaneously” would require the next trillion years. Something else was needed. And therein lies the greater story of what Mr. Hubbard’s discovery of basic purpose then generated in terms of doingness.
Although still ongoing, the Briefing Course had already encompassed 209 lectures. Moreover, he had not only raised auditor expertise to undreamed-of levels, he’d developed new training methods which could now be employed in every organization for their own zones of training.
Then again, the pattern by which Scientology would continue to expand from there on out was now evident. For with expert auditors now being trained, they could be the stable points to push it even farther. It all followed from evidence of what happened when basic purpose was restored—as in a Clear—and the effects they created in any new area, just by being Clear. All of which revealed how one auditor could clear entire geographic areas. Here was the math of what it meant to “Clear the Planet” brought down to its realities:
“It works out by arithmetical progression, because as soon as some of these people were well along the way and Clear themselves, you would find those people moving rapidly—a certain number of them moving rapidly into professional training, you couldn’t stop them—and moving straight on through and taking groups of their own.”
So it was Mr. Hubbard boarded the Queen Elizabeth destined for New York en route to Washington, DC. While as for the particulars, the site was the Mayflower Hotel and, fittingly, the largest attendance ever. And while many a previous Congress had seen its own theatrics, this one even included an offer to find the Goal of someone—name drawn at random—by Congress end. All of which explained the intensive auditing between lectures—because, yes, they did indeed find that goal. And finally, as for the atmosphere of excitement, a dramatic demonstration of a GPM not to mention the live drums of oldtimer Louie Belucci—during the lectures!
But if it all had an air of celebration, there was good reason. For here was the critical importance of revitalizing an individual, a group or a planet, and in this way setting whole nations on the Road to Freedom.
Moreover, to pave that road in stone, he delivered his landmark lecture on the pivotal role of Scientology Organizations, the stable foundation that drives planetary clearing, “Your Scientology Orgs and What They Do for You.”
So, yes, with basic purpose, L. Ron Hubbard’s last Congress did cause the start of a new world. For as he continued advancing the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, and in the space of but three years:
At which point, all that remained was the future. And upon which it depends, there only remained what he expressed in his parting words:
“We Scientologists have got to pull together.”
And, in this final Congress, he told us how to do just that.
