Description

The word Dianetics comes from the Greek dia, meaning "through" and nous, meaning "soul", and is defined as "what the soul is doing to the body." Dianetics is a methodology which can help alleviate unwanted sensations and emotions, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses (illnesses caused or aggravated by mental stress). It is most accurately described as what the soul is doing to the body through the mind. The mind is basically a communication and control system between the person and his environment. It is composed of mental image pictures, which are recordings of past experiences. The individual uses his mind to pose and solve problems related to survival and to direct his efforts according to these solutions. What is the Reactive Mind? The reactive mind is the portion of a person's mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis, which is not under his volitional (willing) control, and which exerts force and the power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions. The source of any negative emotion, attitude or feeling is fully revealed in "Dianetics". The causes of a person's feelings of grief or loss are buried in the person's reactive mind, able to influence and control the person. Dianetics technology guides a person through his or her reactive mind to locate - and permanently eradicate - the actual source of the upset. With the cause of the upset handled, the person is once more able to live a happy, healthy life.show more

About L. Ron Hubbard

As the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard's discoveries on the subjects of man, the mind and spirit have helped people all over the world to better understand themselves and others. "To know life," he once wrote, "you've got to be part of life. You must get down there and look, you must get into the nooks and crannies of existence, and you must rub elbows with all kinds and types of men before you can finally establish what man is." And throughout his long and adventurous pursuit of knowledge, L. Ron Hubbard did just that, in the process also becoming one of the twentieth century's most influential authors, with more than 160 million copies of his works in worldwide circulation.show more
