To the New Dianetics Reader:
I was in Scientology for nearly fifteen years. When it was all over, what I had learned from the entire sordid experience is that what Tampawog said above is what life is all about. He said it so well that it bears repeating:
It all starts and ends with oneself and how you treat yourself and others. Respect for others and yourself, do something each day that makes you happy, and do something each day that makes another person happy. Don't hurt other people, don't use people. These are not things of religion or god or some divine whatever, they are just common sense.
Thanks, Tampawog, for cutting to the chase so succinctly.
