"DEAR HELEN APRIL 10
RE CLINIC, HAS
The arrangements that have been made seem a good temporary
measure. On a longer look, however, something more equitable will
have to be organized. I am not quite sure what we would call the
place - probably not a clinic - but I am sure that it ought to be a
company, independent of the HAS but fed by the HAS.
We don't want a clinic. We want one in operation but not in
name. Perhaps we could call it a Spiritual Guidance Center. Think up
its name, will you. And we could put in nice desks and our boys in
neat blue with diplomas on the walls and 1. knock psychotherapy into
history and 2. make enough money to shine up my operating scope and 3.
keep the HAS solvent. It is a problem of practical business.
I await your reaction on the religion angle. In my opinion,
we couldn't get worse public opinion than we have had or have less
customers with what we've got to sell. A religious charter would be
necessary in Pennsylvania or NJ to make it stick. But I sure could
make it stick. We're treating the present time beingness,
psychotherapy treats the past and the brain. And brother, that's
religion, not mental science."

It is nothing to do with hypnotism, voodooism, charalatanism, monkeyism
or theosophy. Done, the thetan can do anything a stage magician can do in
in the way of moving objects around. But this isn't attained by holding
one's breathe or thinking right thoughts or voting Republican or any
other superstitous or mystic practice. So for the reason I brought up,
rule out, auditor, any mumbo jumbo or mysticism, spiritualism, or religion."

|"Society, thirsting for more control of more people substitutes
religion for the spirit, the body for the soul, an identity for
the individual and science and data for truth. In this direction
lies insanity, increasing slavery, less knowingness, greater scarcity
and less society.
Scientology has opened the gates to a better world. It is not a psycho-therapy nor a religion. It is a body of knowledge which, when properly used, gives freedom and truth to the individual."
