A March For Happiness And Opportunity In Harlem

June 4, 2016

e632be425d785fbb32dcec464ffbA team of Scientologists marched from 133rd street and Malcolm X Boulevard in Harlem to 125th street and Marcus Garvey Park to call attention to a booklet they say can change people’s lives.

Staff members of the soon-to-be-opened Ideal Church of Scientology of Harlem and Scientology Community Center handed out copies of a booklet as they marched. Its title is The Way to Happiness: A Common Sense Guide to Better Livingwritten by author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Nonreligious in nature, this booklet is used by people of virtually every culture and creed and contains a universal moral code based entirely on common sense.

These Scientologists want people to know that the booklet’s 21 precepts form a guideline anyone can use to take charge of their lives.

Embracing traditional values, it also includes know-how people can learn to become more competent and to stay focused when others try to put them down. And it empowers people to help others and to make a difference in their neighborhoods and beyond.

In the chapter titled “Happiness,” Mr. Hubbard wrote:

You are important to other people. You are listened to. You can influence others.
The happiness or unhappiness of others you could name is important to you.
Without too much trouble, using this book, you can help them survive and lead happier lives.

While no one can guarantee that anyone else can be happy, their chances of survival and happiness can be improved. And with theirs, yours will be.

Once opened, Harlem’s new Scientology Community Center will hold workshops on The Way to Happiness and the other social betterment programs the Church supports, including drug education and human rights education. Their Volunteer Ministers will be on hand to help with any problem great or small. There will be rooms for tutoring and life improvement courses, volunteer spaces and seminar and conference rooms where religious and civic leaders can meet and plan activities to uplift the community. The chapel will also serve as an auditorium for community events.
