Just How Does this Self Improvement Work?

In my last post, I mentioned Scientology, as an applied religious philosophy, can help turn Self Improvement Month into more than guesswork and hopeful wishes.

This quote from the book Scientology: A New Slant on Life by L. Ron Hubbard explains the basis of that statement.

“Scientology is formed in the tradition of ten thousand years of religious philosophy and considers itself a culmination of the searches which began with the Veda, the Tao, Buddhism, Christianity and other religions.  Scientology is a Gnostic faith in that it knows it knows.  This is its distinguishing characteristic from most of its predecessors.  Scientology can demonstrate that it can attain the goals set for Man by all religions, which are wisdom, good health and immortality.”
