Keeping Scientology Working Series 28
Establishment Officer Series 46
YOUR POST AND LIFE
A vital datum has emerged in my recent whole-track research.
IF ONE KNOWS THE TECH OF HOW TO DO SOMETHING AND CAN DO IT, AND USES IT, HE CANNOT BE THE ADVERSE EFFECT OF IT.
This applies in many, many ways and is in fact a key point of life-a fundamental that may underlie all others.
And it applies to you directly on a post and in life.
If you know the tech-and that includes policy-of your post and apply it, you cannot be the adverse effect of it. FACT!
This has many ramifications:
1. A hatted staff member is not only at cause over his post, he is safe.
2. A well-trained auditor gets no adverse reaction from auditing others.
3. A well-trained Supervisor has no adverse reaction from students.
4. A fully-trained and functioning staff can get no real adverse reaction from superiors or even an enemy.
5. An SP confronted by someone who knows and can use all the tech concerning SPs would shatter.
The list could go on and on since the datum pervades all sectors of life itself.
In fact, it is almost mystical!
There is a corollary: If one is experiencing an adverse effect on a post or in life, then he does not know or has not applied the tech or policy covering it.
There is also a limiting factor: The full benefit of the datum is not sweepingly realized in all sectors until one is all the way up the Bridge. BUT the datum is so powerful that it can be applied and will manifest itself even in small things like opening cans, much less doing a post.
And knowing that one datum can save you enormous trouble and grief and put you on the road to OT doing what you’re doing and right where you are!
