“CONDITIONS” – A Scientology Power Process

Depression

The word CONDITION comes from Latin condiciōn– agreement. It has the following definitions.

1. A particular mode of being of a person or thing; existing state; situation with respect to circumstances.
2. State of health: He was reported to be in critical condition.
3. Fit or requisite state: to be out of condition; to be in no condition to run.
4. Social position: in a lowly condition.
5. A restricting, limiting, or modifying circumstance: It can happen only under certain conditions.
6. A circumstance indispensable to some result; prerequisite; that on which something else is contingent: conditions of acceptance.
7. Usually, conditions. Existing circumstances: poor living conditions.
8. Something demanded as an essential part of an agreement; provision; stipulation: He accepted on one condition.

In Scientology, CONDITION is defined as,

1. “Anything called for as a requirement before the performance, completion, or effectiveness of something else; provision; stipulation.”
2. “Anything essential to the existence or occurrence of something else; anything that modifies or restricts the nature, existence, or occurrence of something else; external circumstances or factors.”
3. “Manner or state of being.”
4. “Proper or healthy state.”

.

Conditions Process Commands are:

1. Tell me an existing condition.
2. Tell me how you handled it.

“Condition” means an existing state that is right there and visible. It could be unacceptable to the person, and therefore suppressed, but it is usually where the attention is. The Conditions Process addresses such conditions where a person’s attention is fixed. One looks at the condition at “the top of the mental stack” per Mindfulness 6 to let the mind unstack itself naturally.

The condition of body and mind seem to go hand in hand. A painful condition of the body may be accompanied by mental anxiety. The practice of proper nutrition and exercise may help bring about mindful contemplation.

While there are many concerns that have to be unstacked first, in actual fact there is only ONE that has been there for a long time with other concerns piling up on it. One looks at the condition more closely and also at the attitude one has about it. He looks at all the actions he has taken with respect to it. One experiences non-judgmentally the feelings, emotions and efforts that the mind brings up. If there is an engram it will show up.

A person commonly unstacks intense feelings and emotions before finally gaining the complete understanding for his condition. The appearance of intense emotions is a sign that one is approaching the final stages of the process. But one does not deviate from contemplating on the two directives of the process above.

When the person finally gains the realization about his condition, a quick review of the session from beginning to end gets him into present time. It is essential that all questions, confusions and doubts about one’s existing condition are fully settled.

    Vin: “The person will eventually acquire the understanding for his condition. His attention will be freed up. For the first time he can be in present time and enjoy it. The feelings of hostility and antagonism that had plagued him before, now disappear. All those situations, which were attempting to address this condition, are also resolved. That is the end of the process.”

    This is quite an evaluation for what to expect from this process. How many people have you run this process on to the result you state?

    I have learned to be sensitive to hype from my many years of reading Hubbard’s hype.

    Who says this condition has plagued him with hostility and antagonism?

    Yes, this is the hype that goes along with this Scientology process. I have come across people who broke through their case with these power processes. I know that these processes do not work 100% of the time. I am just hoping that they might work with KHTK approach. You are right I have not used this KHTK approach on this process on a large number of people.

    But, in general, the KHTK approach with 12 Steps of Mindfulness is very powerful and works. Sometime it works right away, sometimes it takes a long time. But it works. The Scientology processes simply provide different starting points.

    I have forwarded Hubbard’s hype here in this version of the process. I may take it out once I get home from vacation. I am in Miyanmar right now.

      Chris: drinking pina-coladas with little umbrellas? (Just wanted to show off my own worldly sophistication!)

    There are a lot of Buddhist pagodas here. 🙂

      Chris: Is it inspiring? 🙂

      • vinaire  On March 12, 2013 at 9:12 PM

        What is inspiring is the peaceful community spirit that seems to pervade all people here. People are by and large non-judgmental, and they take life at it comes. Buddhism pervades the culture. People are gainfully busy without complaint despite their circumstance.

          Chris: I know just what you mean. I lived in a small American village in my teens and there was poverty (but not crowding) even by third world standards. But I had ambition and many times I give pause to wonder where the frenetic activities of my life has really gotten me. My favorite times are quietly in meditation which I could have done since the beginning, but now I have to be able to “afford” it.
