When I was studying Scientology in the mid-late Seventies, course rooms were filled with auditors in training. We students were armed with more data on the human mind and spirit than we could ever have imagined just a few months before.
Most of us were on the way to realizing the dream we had carried for many years: We could really help someone and change their lives for the better with a little bit of two way communication.
As a result, there was a lot of help going on and people were having huge wins receiving and delivering what was called coffee shop auditing sessions. The great majority were assist actions and the students seemed to have no backoff on delivering an assist or a locational when needed.
I’m sure that some of these ad hoc sessions required repair and those involved got crammed, but the vast majority of coffee shop session I was aware of produced wins and gave auditors certainty that the Tech worked.
The availability of coffee shop auditing also created an atmosphere where preclears and students knew that they could get free help just by asking for it. When that help was forthcoming and produced the usual results, it gave the recipients an incentive to get trained themselves.
One night I was driving another student home and he asked me about a persistent mental image picture that just would not go away. He had never received auditing and I asked him if I could help him deal with this picture.
We had an hours drive ahead of us on a Throughway and would not be interrupted so I asked him to tell me about the picture (which I could see quite clearly).
We ran a Book One process until it blew. By the time it erased, he had run out a past life murder and his subsequent death. As you could imagine, we ended off on a huge win before I exited the Throughway and delivered him to his front door.
The next day, he went in for an attest cycle and joined staff.
It seemed to me that those kinds of miracles were commonplace in those halcyon days when tech was being used instead of rationed and controlled. Being able to help others is what Scientology was about.
Controlling others by withholding scientology is what current management seems to favor. Once people know what the tech can do for them, denying access to the tech is the ultimate suppression. Some Sea Org members go for years with no auduting and no case gain.
That situation can be remedied when Independent Scientology gets organized and starts cleaning up the abuses comitted under the g uise of “command intention”.
