Jealousy


I'm here and you out, Waterfall, Young happy lady

Introduction: Jealousy could be characterized as, "I am the only one who has the power to grant life. And that, damn it, insists on granting life to. And therefore we have two functions here which are not compatible, and so it must die." And that's your jealousy. The power to grant life.



Here is part two of Max's interview in Moscow, again in English. I can only recommend it 😊👌 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17ds_sKbD_Q

Granting Life and Death


Excerpt from the lecture Application of Theory to Cases: Life and Death, “Only One” by L. Ron Hubbard given on the 14 July 1954.


The most valuable energy which an individual has is that energy involved in the granting of life.


An integral portion of the granting of life is the granting of self determinism. Once you have granted life to something, then the only way to prove that it is separately alive is to permit it to function on its own self determinism.


Jealousy could be characterized as, "I am the only one who has the power to grant life. And that, damn it, insists on granting life to. And therefore we have two functions here which are not compatible, and so it must die." And that's your jealousy. The power to grant life.


Most people try to grant death because they couldn't grant life, and that is why we get the cycle of action which goes from create, through survive to destroy. It doesn't go destroy, through survive, to create. It goes the other way around. When they fail to grant life, and cause anything to continue with that life, they grant death. That is the inevitable sequence.


People try to shame other people with the past, so the past becomes a football upon the playing field. Two people in an argument, "You said this yesterday." They never can keep past tense out of their damn arguments. Always got to have past tense in the argument. "That was what you said yesterday!" They think the past can actually grant ownership of things, or settle disputes or something.

 

He does something obligingly, and then he sits there and waits. He's waiting for a consequence. This whole man's life is caged about by the horrible consequences of his own actions. If he takes or makes an action of any character or kind, there is going to be a consequence. He is not certain of anything except this, if he were to kill a man he'd get hanged, only he doesn't even dare think that boldly. He thinks if he in a restaurant drops a teacup and makes a slight clatter in the restaurant, he immediately expects the proprietor to come over and hit him on the head with a club. This is the sort of a life this fellow's leading.


He's expecting consequences for any action, and he believes that almost anything he does will be a misdemeanor, and so of course he's not in motion and of course he can't indulge in effort. His life is devoted to making a cautious action, and then being very careful to observe whether or not something bad occurred.


And all you have to do is disabuse him of the fact there are going to be consequences for these insignificant actions, and he feels much better about life. And he can be source, and thereafter he can be something. Now you see where he goes immediately? He moves over onto source point. He dares be on that source point, because he isn't going to get punished.

This is one of the reasons 8-C works, if he observes at length that there's nothing horrible happening to him as a result of being ordered around. He can actually obey a command without something horrible happening to him.


The next thing he discovers is that he's touching these things, and after that if you were to take a preclear who couldn't be anything, and then run some 8-C Opening Procedure on that preclear for a while, you would discover that after you had done this thoroughly and well that your preclear could be something.


In order to be anything, a man has to be able to identify himself with a receipt point or a source point on the communication formula. If he can't be at receipt point or source point in the communication formula, of course there's nothing he can identify himself with.


If he could just be a dead man and feel some conviction that he was being a dead man, he would at least be at receipt point. Well if an individual cannot be at receipt point at all, he doesn't even dare be a dead man, and so he walks around through life a zombie. If he could come up scale high enough he would be a dead man.


You will find a great many people walking around proving that they bring death to things.

How do they prove this? They show you a withered leg, or a disfigured head or something of the sort.


The most valuable energy which an individual has is that energy involved in the granting of life.
