Tape 5407C14 "Application of Theory to Cases, Life & Death Only One"


There is a process that directly processes consequences. The person who sits there and runs concepts obligingly, and then sits there and waits, is waiting for a consequence. This person's whole life is caged about by the horrible consequences of his own actions. If he takes or makes any action of any character or kind, there's going to be a consequence. He is not certain of anything except this. If he were to kill a man, he'd get hanged.

Only he doesn't even dare think that boldly. He thinks that if he were in a restaurant and were to drop a teacup or make a slight clatter, immediately the proprietor would come over and hit him on the head with a club.

This is the sort of life this person is leading. He's expecting consequences for any action, and he believes that almost anything he does will be a misdemeanor. And so, of course, he's not in motion and won't indulge in effort.

His life is devoted to making a cautious action and then being very careful to observe whether or not something bad occurred.

There is a process by which we ask a person to touch something and let go, and find out if anything happened.

We want this individual to discover what he himself is doing in processing. Some other entity someplace or another is evidently sitting there being processed. He is sitting there observing something being processed. This is your rough case.

This individual will sit there and he will run this concept, and then will wait to see if something happened. Nothing is going to happen. Nothing ever will happen. Not to the end of time, if he sat there from there on out. The person will keep on tell you time after time that nothing is happening. You say, "That's right," and he thinks this is the most horrible thing that ever happened to him. To have to sit there and do this because it is totally idiotic.

But that isn't really idiotic. The whole motive is this: Do something, and then observe whether or not something happened as a result thereof. We want the person to discover at length that he can touch a chair and know he is touching a chair and nothing occurs.

The only reason he can't admit that he is touching the chair is that he feels somebody else must be touching the chair. When he is touching the chair, the only reason why he doesn't quite dare admit it is because he is liable to be punished. He doesn't dare be source-point. This technique is designed to move them square onto source point. They can't be anything until they are on source point.

Recognize that the technique could be altered so as to produce no result.

You could say, "All right. Now touch your ear. All right. Wait for what happens." Technique won't work. We want this individual directly to touch something, and then sit back and discover for himself that no consequences occur. The way we do this is to have him touch something and have him sit back to see if anything happens.

The command simply is this: "Touch your left knee. Let go of it. Now sit back and see if anything happens." That is the command and that is the technique, and that is the reason the thing is run.

When you have a person who is sitting there trying to find out if something is going to happen, you have a person who is afraid of consequences. All you have to do is disabuse him of the fact that there are going to be consequences for these insignificant actions, and he feels much better about life. He can be source, and thereafter he can be something.


"Touch your (body part)".

"Thank you."

"Let go of it."

"Thank you."

"Now sit back and see if anything happens."

This can also be run on objects in the room.

End Point

Run the process until a realization occurs, or an ability is regained.



These objective assist processes are excerpted and compiled from the works of L. Ron Hubbard as part of a study of the Briefing Course materials. They are made available here for the purpose of discussion on spirit-l. Spirit-l is a list intended for the discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of clearing philosophies and methods. Frequent topics include self-betterment processes that can be done alone or in a coprocessing setting. There are "fair use" considerations as the works these quotations are taken from are copyrighted. The actual owner of the copyrights seems to be in question, but it most certainly is not I. Therefore, these fair use excerpts are available for Spirit-l list subscribers to prepare for, and participate in, the on-line discussion. It is also for others who, although unable to participate in the discussion of Hubbard's work at this time (perhaps lacking email access or available time), would like to prepare for such discussion on the above thread topics in the future. Just as one can copy a chapter out of a book to teach a class, and even a whole book using a chapter for each class, separate supplementary manuals will facilitate the different on-line discussion topics.
