Hi Laurie,  giving is senior to receiving, and there is this quote,
"A human being feels able and competent only so long as he is permitted to contribute as much or more than he has contributed to him." -- L. Ron Hubbard...When one gives more than he receives, isn't there going to be a feeling of out-exchange along the way? How strict is a balance of exchange in this regard?

My view is this:

The ability to have is the ability to create.

The person who experiences any adverse effects of out-exchange is the person who fails to hold up their end.

Yet, income never exceeds demand.  So if a person is fully responsible, they are responsible for both ends of an exchange - both producing and outflowing their side, and demanding a return from the other side, so as not to hang the other poor soul with the overt of being out-exchange.

I am able to answer questions regarding Scientology practices and procedures, religious philosophy, donations, religious rites, management, administrative and staff matters.


I am a second generation Scientologist whose parents began in Dianetics in 1950 and studied directly with L. Ron Hubbard. I have been personally active in the church for nearly 50 years, have eleven years former staff experience in both technical and administrative areas, and extensive technical and administative training and counseling. I am "clear" and "OT." I come from an extended family of many religions, but my spouse and children are Scientologists, as are my siblings and their spouses, several cousins, nieces, nephews, an aunt, and an uncle. Between us we have had every good and bad experience one might go through in the church at every level.
