The Cause of Suppression
Have you ever wondered why some people are continually sick while others seem to live an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows? In the booklet, The Cause of Suppression, you will find why businesses are driven into collapse, families break up and life is rough and failing. When you understand this information you can make your way in life. You are aware that “bad luck” is hardly ever the reason for misfortunes and you can therefore look for the real reason and take action.1; 2
How to Deal With Ups & Downs in Life
How to Handle the Negative Influences in Life
There is some truth in judging someone by the company they keep. It can easily be seen that those around us do influence our attitudes and behavior, for better or worse. And it doesn’t surprise many to learn that criminals often consort with criminals and that they promote anti-social activities and influence others to continue such unethical and illegal conduct.
This section of the Criminon Program deals with establishing the skill to chart one’s own course in life, with honesty and integrity, and to spot and disassociate from those elements which would tend to lead one astray.
The course teaches the students the characteristics of both anti-social personalities and social personalities, so that they may recognize both and know the differences between the two. That way, they can better choose their friends and associates, and become more aware of their own attitudes and be made less susceptible to those who would have them revert to crime.
“Not confronting suppression—not handling it—is giving something of yourself away, like compromising with a thief. Quitting; to give in to suppression is not being your own person. Knowledge is the most powerful possession of all and gives anyone the means to deal with and handle any connection with suppression.”1

The Ups and Downs in Life Course
The name of this course, “Ups and Downs in Life,” refers to the recognizable characteristic of those in recovery who do well for a time and then relapse, recover and then relapse, etc. This course is designed to reduce the “downs” and facilitate stable upward recovery.
In this course the student learns that there are a small number of antisocial individuals actively devoted to destructive activities. Through association with such people, an individual’s self determinism becomes suppressed and he begins to fail in life. He may begin to identify with these negative or anti-social people, who themselves have often adopted a drug addict or criminal life style.
The addict can then become aggressive and alienated, adopting negative attitudes toward family and friends formerly close to him who accept conventional values. Once the addict sobers up, a process of re-socialization begins.
This course is designed to encourage this process. The student is helped to identify the “social” characteristics of those who support sobriety and success in contrast to the characteristics of anti-social people. Through the exercises in this course, the student is helped to learn how to develop positive relationships with people and how to recognize and cope with those who have drug-oriented, criminal and destructive inclinations.
This ability to distinguish between who is and is not a real friend is tremendously important for when the graduated student returns to his home or work environment. Abilities gained on this course are a key life skill to reduce relapse to drugs and crime after program completion.1

GET THE TOOLS TO CONFRONT AND SHATTER SUPPRESSION
Realize this: if you’re not flourishing and prospering right now, then there’s a very good chance you’re under suppression in some area of your life. And the How to Confront and Shatter Suppression PTS/SP Course is the remedy.
It’s the most popular course in Scientology, for good reason. Surveys of those who’ve done the course found it puts one at a whole new level of cause in life, makes one able to spot a suppressive person a mile away and gives the ability and tools to handle any suppression, fast. And that’s just for starters.
THE BASIS OF SUCCESS
Underlying the success of the PTS/SP Course is the fundamental LRH datum:
“IF ONE KNOWS THE TECH OF HOW TO DO SOMETHING AND CAN DO IT, AND USES IT, HE CANNNOT BE THE THE ADVERSE EFFECT OF IT….
“An SP confronted by someone who knows and can use all the tech concerning SPs would shatter.”—L Ron Hubbard
With the PTS/SP Course you will know all the tech and you will have the ability to use it. The revolutionary PTS/SP tech is laid out on a smooth gradient with dozens of practical and demonstrations to make every concept clear. Golden Age of Tech drills bring it all together so that you know you can apply the tech with utter certainty.
This is the tech you need. Indeed, as LRH says: “A full and complete PTS handling would consist of getting the person through his PTSness and then getting him through the PTS/SP Course. This must be included as part of the handling, as otherwise the person will never learn the full mechanics that had been wrecking his life.”
The PTS/SP Course will take you to an entirely new level in the only game worth playing: Scientology.
Moreover, when asked who should do the PTS/SP Course, LRH replied: “Every one of them. They live in the United States. They live in England. They have governments. They are on planet Earth.”
THIS IS A GOLDEN AGE DF TECH COURSE GIVING YOU TOTAL CERTAINTY ON:
- The fundamental types of people—how you can spot their character, intentions and motives.
- The discovery and description of the suppressive person.
- Exactly how to spot the guises of suppression.
- The complete mechanics of how the suppressive weaves his web while hiding behind a facade.
- Ability to look at people and really know them—who your friends are and who your friends are not.
- How one goes the effect of suppression.
- How to spot the true identity behind the mask and smash it.
- The technical handlings to handle suppression and never go effect of it.1

Maybe it’s not stress

“An SP confronted by someone who knows and can use all the tech concerning SPs would shatter.”—L. Ron Hubbard
Successes from the “How to Confront and Shatter Suppression”1 Course:
Five years ago, I was diagnosed with a severe abdominal illness with pronounced physical symptoms. I tried ALL forms of the healing arts, from drugs to vegetables. I had been to two of the ‘finest’ doctors in LA.—they were absolutely stumped. They had no clue as to cure, and in the beginning, they told me there was no cure. As time went on and the disease progressed, they began to suggest removing large sections of my intestines to prevent cancer. As the side effects of the surgery were described, I thought of nothing else but dying. That’s what I began to hope for.
“I told my mother I couldn’t take life anymore and needed help. She told me to get into Scientology.
“I routed onto the PTS/SP Course. While on it, I read ONE particular page in Science of Survival and the lightning bolt struck. I sat FROZEN for ten minutes, realizing ‘who’ it was. I had searched before to no avail. But finally, there he was! And within 24 hours, my illness was 80% gone and one week, after that it was COMPLETELY gone! I stopped roller coastering and hating myself. I stopped hoping death would come.
“Now I am cured and on minimal medicine. No surgery, no cancer. And that is the power of the tech. Thanks to Ron for saving my life.”—G.R.
From the start, I saw I really needed this course! I used to be very dispersed personally; that dispersal disappeared. I am really, really happy all the time —I can’t tell you how happy!
“Now I know the truth and I can love everyone. I am in much better communication with my family and have even greater love for them.
“I can see the whole situation with society. Without the tech on SPs and PTS, the SPs are allowed to go around wrecking lives and so a lot of people are PTS. I had this situation myself before doing this course and my body was always sick. Now I’m well and strong. Every day I feel brighter. Suppression cannot affect me and I have more freedom. Nobody can stop me. I have more power and I just keep going toward my goal. And best of all, I can now communicate and give people tech to make them happy.
“If you just keep plugging at your job, getting no tech, trying to get by, you will just go down. You must continually get LRH tech and I really recommend the PTS/SP Course—it gives you the tools to flourish and prosper, to go free and to move up The Bridge!”—I.C.2
