ASSIGNMENT >> 34. Read the article “Communication is Life.”


One’s ability to communicate can spell the difference between success or failure in all aspects of living. You will notice that those people you know who are successful in their endeavors generally have a high ability to communicate; those who are not, do not.

Communication is not just a way of getting along in life, it is the heart of life. It is by thousands of percent the senior factor in understanding life and living it successfully.

We instinctively revere the great artist, painter or musician, and society as a whole looks upon them as not quite ordinary beings. And they are not. But the understanding and skilled use of communication is not only for the artist, it is for anyone.

In examining the whole subject of communication, one is apt to discover, if he takes a penetrating look, that there are very few people around him who are actually communicating, but that there are a lot of people who think they are communicating who are not.

The apparency sometimes is that it is better not to communicate than to communicate, but that is never really the case. Communication is the solvent for any human problem. An understanding of communication itself was not available before Scientology.

A thorough knowledge of the communication formula and an understanding of how any difficulties in its application can be recognized and corrected are vital tools to successful living.
