...are they not all bad religions and good philosophies?

This is my second Hubbard book and I have still yet to find why the masses attempts to defame him. What is with the media and the ignorant masses?! In actuality, Hubbard's philosophy is quite profound and invigorating. Scientology itself is not for me, I am an atheist/transhumanist, I am just a lover of all works of philosophy. From Hubbard trying to reel people into Scientology, likewise with the Scientologists themselves, is probably what has misrepresented Hubbard's literary work, just as Christians have that of Jesus, although he was probably illiterate which is why people had to scirbe for him. Religion is truly the spoiler here of some great philosophies on life and existence.

This may sound cliché, but this book has done wonders for me. I am not spiritual or religious, but I am a supporter of synchronicity. Before and during the time I was reading this book I was going through some introspective issues, and with little success at finding out what was wrong with me. Then when I arrived at pg. 35, sure enough I found my answer. I am not saying this will be the same experience for everyone, but this aided me greatly. As I continued I began to receive more and more information about my personal issues that were identified in the explanation of various thematic issues.

The book itself is really short due to the bulk of it actually being questions related to introspection exercises. As far as the technique goes, I questioned it at first, but after practicing a nominal amount I really felt relief. Needless to say, if one had the discipline and time to do this everyday it would work. These exercises even calibrate your patience and I think it is an essential tool for anyone with a short fuse.

This book contains the best memory exercises there are. I have looked at many other memory enhancement courses and books but this is the best.
The exercises are simple and easy to understand. About 60% of the book are lists of things to remember and each item in a list is matched to sensory perceptions. For example: Recall a time you had a holiday and match it to smell. You might get the smell of turkey in the oven or maybe apple pie. 30 or 40 minutes a day works great to improve your outlook on life and enhance your memory. Simple, but it works.
I owned this book in 1986 but lost it in a move. I am very pleased that I was able to find a copy of this book on Amazon.

What I really liked about this book was that it wasn't a lot of jibberish designed to make your head swim. Just very short chapters followed by practical actions you can do in your own home. Want to improve your emotional tone? Want to improve your memory? Want to feel and be more alive? This is the book to read and use. It changed my life for the better, for good

Well, Self Analysis and I are old buddies going back about thirty years. There are so many principles that I had forgotten about or had re-discovered in reading the book and doing the exercises.

Hubbard's Science of Survival emphasized concentrating on the pleasure moments in the person and in yourself. In Self Analysis, he gives the way of doing that. Going over the various kinds of recall, such as imagination, general incidents and such to better know ourselves was really a treat to read about and to remember.

The chapter on "On Our Efforts of Immortality" was very interesting as he describes life force as another kind of energy and its purposes and he echoes what he talked about in SOS - that life must procure pleasure and avoid pain. Good advice!

Another principle I enjoyed was the concept that many of our fears are really merely shadows and like the natives who catch fish with shadows, we usually mock up or others mock up these flimsy traps for us. All we really have to do is disagree and get some auditing.

Also the book helped rehabilitate what I liked about Self Analysis and its simple yet effective technique in bringing people up and not having to live with their painful or sorrowful memories.

I hate to say something good about El Con Flubbard (see my reviews of all his books under aging hippy)but this is actually quite useful.
It says things like remember a time you felt cheerful.what sounds did you hear.
Remember a time you achieved something how bright were the colors.You get the picture.
Just because El Con was a con man does not mean he was not a good observer of people.A successful con man has to be a good observer.
Nevertheless.If you are currently on the way to the dumpster to unload the 6 boxes of books you had to buy,maybe you should keep this one.Although I personally dumped it too on my trip to the dumpster.

It is too bad this book isn't called THE MAGIC OF LIFE. I have been reading, re-reading, practicing and doing what the author instructs as carefully as I can for a few years now. He asks the questions clearly and patiently. I answer. It has thoroughly expanded my ability to enjoy life: past, present and future. It is not hard to learn but neither is it easy to learn. A true intention to understand the author's instructions and the "perceptions" he is asking you to "look at" is needed. It is a good idea to read the book word-for-word so when you get to the "questions" you are ready for them. You might like it!! Let the author ask you the questions OR you can work with someone else and ask each other the questions.
