Free Zone Decree Commentary

Scientology, as part of it’s core teachings, demonstrates that one is not their mind nor their body but a spiritual being. That being, for the lack of a better term, is called a "thetan".

Once we become free of our own limitations, at least to some degree, we find that as spiritual beings we have a long, long history replete with a life and death struggle overcoming all sorts of problems which we place before us.

In this totality of existence there is such a thing as a universe which is alive and populated with all sorts of thetans in varying conditions and stages of spiritual freedom. Some are more ‘free’ than others.

In freedom, comes responsibilty and it is in this responsibility that Scientology faces dead-on all which opposes that spiritual freedom. It doesn’t matter whether suppression comes from the next door neighbor or from across the galaxy, both take their toll upon one’s spirituality.

In declaring an area to be off-limits the proclamation merely verbalizes what Scientology has always stood for - spiritual freedom.

And so it is.
