When someone asks (although less and less these days) What is Scientology, I can answer in many ways since Scientology is wisdom applied to living, and that covers a lot of activities and interests.
Here are a few of the answers easy to understand:
It’s a controversial new religion and religious philosophy based on the most ancient wisdom, used by millions to better their lives and be happier, sometimes misused by a few with bad intentions to bring others to ruin and succumb.
It’s the Glorious story of Man the Spirit vs Man from Mud theory, Man conquers Mud.
The rediscovery of the human soul, YOU, the isolation of its exact nature, and its ultimate liberation.
It’s what the common modern man uses to make his plans become actuality and achieve a higher state of being.
Scientology means more happiness, higher productivity, greater life, greater length of life and greater pleasure during life.
Here is the Code of Behavior for counselors in Scientology when aiding others to release trauma from their lives and overcome obstacles to a happier existence. They are called AUDITORS. The definition in Scientology for AUDITOR is a trained Scientologist who listens. Tomorrow I’ll go into depth as to how that helps people achieve the above. I’ll give examples from my experience as a Scientology Auditor.
I hereby promise as an auditor to follow the Auditor’s Code.
1. I promise not to evaluate for the preclear or tell him what he should think about his case in session.
2. I promise not to invalidate the preclear’s case or gains in or out of session.
3. I promise to administer only Standard Tech to a preclear in the standard way.
4. I promise to keep all auditing appointments once made.
5. I promise not to process a preclear who has not had sufficient rest and who is physically tired.
6. I promise not to process a preclear who is improperly fed or hungry.
7. I promise not to permit a frequent change of auditors.
8. I promise not to sympathize with a preclear but to be effective.
9. I promise not to let the preclear end session on his own determinism but to finish off those cycles I have begun.
10. I promise never to walk off from a preclear in session.
11. I promise never to get angry with a preclear in session.
12. I promise to run every major case action to a floating needle.
13. I promise never to run any one action beyond its floating needle.
14. I promise to grant beingness to the preclear in session.
15. I promise not to mix the processes of Scientology with other practices except when the preclear is physically ill and only medical means will serve.
16. I promise to maintain communication with the preclear and not to cut his communication or permit him to overrun in session.
17. I promise not to enter comments, expressions or enturbulence into a session that distract a preclear from his case.

20. I promise not to explain, justify or make excuses in session for any auditor mistakes whether real or imagined.
21. I promise to estimate the current case state of a preclear only by Standard Case Supervision data and not to diverge because of some imagined difference in the case.
22. I promise never to use the secrets of a preclear divulged in session for punishment or personal gain.
23. I promise to never falsify worksheets of sessions.
24. I promise to see that any donation received for processing is refunded following the policies of the Claims Verification Board, if the preclear is dissatisfied and demands it within three months after the processing, the only condition being that he may not again be processed or trained.
25. I promise not to advocate Dianetics or Scientology only to cure illness or only to treat the insane, knowing well they were intended for spiritual gain.
26. I promise to cooperate fully with the authorized organizations of Dianetics and Scientology in safeguarding the ethical use and practice of those subjects.
27. I promise to refuse to permit any being to be physically injured, violently damaged, operated on or killed in the name of “mental treatment.”
28. I promise not to permit sexual liberties or violations of patients.
29. I promise to refuse to admit to the ranks of practitioners any being who is insane.
