Perhaps the biggest effect on my life came from a pair of charts written by L. Ron Hubbard, that scoundrel who founded Scientology. Smart man, but fighting an uphill battle with the Corporate Party media and the Power Elite who want their plans to remain secret (things like Operation Northwoods and the fact that 9/11 was an inside job meant to erode our liberties and to dismantle America).
Scientology had one big thing going for it. People who took advantage of their services became far more capable. One major drawback, however, was the ignoring of ego and its effects.
The two charts were the "Know to Mystery Scale" and the "Emotional Tone Scale." These were set in a technical bulletin side-by-side, relating every item on one chart to its related item on the other.
At the top of the charts were "Know" and "Serenity of Beingness." I could understand that, though I could at the time never remember a time of having been there.
The next line was the eye opener for me. "Not-Know" and "Postulates." I still get goosebumps remembering this. At first, it didn't make sense to me. "Postulates," in Scientology parlance, meant "creation," "miracles," and the like. But "Not-Know." I had always pictured creation or miracles as something consciously directed, not hidden behind a lack of consciousness as in "Not-Know."
"Not-Know" is like turning your back on the total "Know" of something. Total knowingness is on one side, and you turn away from that, "not" knowing it all.
When I finally "got it," my mind felt suddenly the size of the galaxy. Earth was an indescribably small spec next to a flicker of light called our Sun.
I wanted to try out my new understanding and instantly created a miracle. It was an insignificant coincidence, but still it showed the cause-and-effect relationship between this newly awakened child of God and physical reality.
Perhaps the largest effect I have found myself creating, all to the glory of the Heavenly Father, was that of opening up thick rush hour traffic on Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, in 1977. Two miles of thick, bumper-to-bumper traffic opened up like Moses parting the sea -- all within a few short seconds.
Years later, while studying the Bible, I finally realized that Genesis had held this secret all along. The first 6 days were the "Know" of God's Word, and the 7th day was the "Not Know" which gave His creation its persistence (time). The "Not Know" was God's day of Rest -- all 13.7 billion years of it, and counting.
