PROFESSIONALS VS DABBLERS
How to Win as an Auditor or Independent Practitioner
In any practice that either wants to be viewed with credibility or with confidence,
Professionalism and efforts to maintain high levels of ethics and excellence
are the keys to success.
The Church is currently in big trouble for violating those rules, in which
LRH believed so much.
The practitioner applying the principles above will soon find himself surounded
by inexhaustible pools of public:
Failed cases from improperly trained Fre Zone and Independent Field practitioners
Ex church members
Church members who have become disenchanted with the Church totalitarian
Prospective interested people
The general public on this planet
Outside thge Church, a general dabbler and "anything goes" attitude has been
promoted by those too lazy to properly train
One has to look at the actual tone level of most "FZ Opinion leaders" of
the previous decade, and see the kind of public that swear by them, and the
ideas they promote: from LRH being kidnapped by Aliens, to Markabians covertly
infiltrating the Church, when it is not the promise to produce Total OTs
faster and more easily than one prepares a cup of coffee.
The winning prqactitioner should:
1) Promote Professionalism in himself and others (out of which applying Standard
Tech is but one key element)
2) Promote high quality and Ethical standards so that people who are not
reckless about choosing their auditor, can use a reliable source to avoid
going to unethical or reckless practitioners
3) Rejection of crazy "group think" where "anything goes", and out-tech is
For example, a few people recently claimed that because Read it Drill it
Do it (RDD) is acceptable in the Church (especially the RPF) that it is a
sanction to FOREVER SUBSEQUENTLY AVOID proper training.
Many people became top auditors and C/Ses at Flag after doing Read it, Drill
it, Do it, in the RPF. So there is nothing wrong with it.
HOWEVER, what those who after decades in the FZ yet never bothered to properly
train on the Upper Levels they are auditing CONVENIENTLY omit saying is that
NOT ONE of the RDD trained auditors was allowed anywhere near a paying public
pc WITHOUT doing subsequently the course, high crime scheckouts and internships
and that the reason for their continual success was PROPER TRAINING.
Taking an expedient or short-cut route to training is Simply stated a DANGER
CONDITION. Danger Conditions have their uses, Bypassing normal habits and
routines is vital under some circumstances. Only a madman would disagree
However, someone who bothers to apply Ethics Technology to himself, would,
after the original Danger is over , eventually DO THE NORMAL THING, which
is to train properly. Unfortunately, those who have failed to master self-discipline,
just like the person riddled with debts who elects to buy a brand new plasma
TV when he comes across some money, instead of paying his bills will rest
on their ill-earned laurels, unhandled MUs and False Data and let their newly
acquired knowledge go to their head by calling themselves "fully trained
auditors who can learn from no one".
Yet there are auditors in the FZ, who boast after decades in it, to have
never done the upper Level training required nor having drilled with a properly
In essence they will remain in a perpetual Danger Condition. It is the road
toward lower conditions and why the FZ as a whole has a truly bad name among
Professionals, wealthy people and Celebrities.
Most of the above people achieved their success by dealing with PROFESSIONALS
and expect PROFESSIONALISM in return.
A Professional does the best possible job and works continually at getting
better at what he does. He firmly believes that he can always improve his
skills and does the necessary work to do so. He does not run away like a
scaredy cat, whenever he gets a whiff that a higher classed auditor is around
and might find out things he could improve on.
The professional has intense respect for his public and therefore considers
it his duty to give auditing as close to what LRH himself would deliver whenever
he is in session. Doing anything less is simply unacceptable to the professional.
The DABBLER on the other hand, is satisfied that having RDD the materials
is "fine enough for eternity" and that the mediocre skills that he has learned
is plenty fine "because pcs are winning".
The DABBLER will never try to question his standards nor the quality of his
original qucikie training. The dabbler is not even interested in finding
out if he can do a better job than he does. The fact that he does "fine"
is entirely satisfactory to him. His opinion about his skills is all too
often written in stone and largely based on a PR status.
It can be said that 40% Standard Tech will still give 40% results. 40% results
is enough to have Success stories by the truck load and great results and
(mainly) satisfied public.
To someone not accustomed, like I am to `LRH Flag Standards``, the rave results
from the 40% auditor can seem not only miraculous but "adequate". They may
well appear to the NON FLAG TRAINED as miraculous and "Sufficient", but what
about the missing 60% ???
Doesnt every pc deserve them as well???
Somehow, in the FZ, some auditors who must view themselves as Cases rather
than auditors, think that pcs winning equal `NEVER MAKE TROUBLE FOR AN AUDITOR
NO MATTER HOW FLUBBY`.
Per C/S 43 one does not make trouble for the pc. But the exact opposite applies
to the auditor. This is how the best auditors have been made.
Though drilling, though training make the best auditors. This is true of
any field. Ask any champion or top achiever.
Permissive, patty cake training as is all too often promoted in some FZ circles,
All it does is produce Patty Cake auditors, Not auditors capable of delivering
flublessly Flag Only Rundowns.
The dabbler can easily sweep under the carpet the few failures and remain
satisfied because he sees results. He appears unaware on how much greater
results his pcs could actually get. He may actually not know any better.
His pcs probably do not know either, or they would seek someone else. All
what the dabbler is saying when he claims "results" is that he is getting
better results than Psychiatry, which is essentially no claim at all.
Mediocrity is the key attribute of the dabbler, and just like the mass producing
company with no quality control, he is actually showing in the long run,
nothing but scorn for his public "as long as they are willing to pay".
For the professional, Quality control is Important. This is true in Industry.
This is true among achievers. This is not true among dabblers, pretenders
and those wanting to make a quick buck.
LRH said "We are in the Rolls-Royce and Leica Business".
The dabbler is satisfied with making YUGOS, though he will frequently advertise
them as `Rolls Royces`. This is when I speak loudly (and often make enemies)
Dabblers want nothing to do with quality Control. Their justifications and
rationalizations can fill a large book. They will always perceive it as a
stop, when in fact, when correctly done, Quality Control should act like
a Rocket booster...
Since people with a private agenda tend to misquote me or pervert my communication:
NOTHING I SAID HERE SAYS THAT ONE SHOULD NOT TRAIN or that one should have
exaggerated ideas of quality before doing any delivery.
All I said is that it is OUt-ETHICS to be too lazy to train after decades
of opportunity while falsely promoting oneself as fully or competently trained.
"PROFESSIONAL, it isn't magic or luck that makes the professional.
It's hard won know-how careful applied. A true professional may do
things pretty easily from all appearances, but he is actually
taking care with each little bit that it is just right". (HCO PL 8
Oct 64) LRH
