A Trip to Chihuahua

Shot this from the car on the way from Nuevo Casas Grandes to the US Border.

I recently made a flying visit to Nuevo Casas Grandes. The people there were friendly and very hospitable. On the way back to the US border crossing at Santa Theresa, I took some shots from the car. They turned out not too badly condsidering. The one above is of a prehistoric type drawing on the mountainside. The one below is a stark contrast between the grandeur of the mountain above and the poverty below.

I was fascinated by the rhythms of the mountains in contrast to the surrounding desert.

“All life is a repeating pulse and ebb and surge of motion.”

L. Ron Hubbard – from his book, ART

Contrast between the grandeur of the mountain above and the poverty below.

  1. Wow loved reading this article. I submitted your feed to my blogreader.

  2. It can be said,that mankind is,actually, in a trap, and will remain in it,until ,more and more, people will begin to realize they are in trap!(or traps) . If you realize you are,actually, in a trap,
    you would be interested in getting out, wouldn’t you? There’s only ONE way out of the trap
    and that is through the technology of Scientology. Eventually, everyone on the planet who
    wants to get out of the trap is going to have to come through Scientology. People are stuck in
    the thought that there are (must be) other ways (than Scientology) and they go off and start hunting for them.
    But, there are no other ways. This is something everyone needs to get a reality on himself: These
    OTHER WAYS are ,actually, blind alleys. They are traps within themselves. There are traps within
    traps! It is a rather complicated trap that man is in, and it requires all the steps that you see on
    the Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart to get out of it. You’ve got to go up
    that gradation chart step-by-step. “If men cared more, if man had a better understanding of his own purpose, man would
    make a better effort to survive, but, lost in confusion of ideologies which were intended to do
    nothing for him, what chance does he have? The chance he has is Scientology. It gives him that chance, and if you do not pass along to him what you know, you, yourself, are failing
    that man, failing yourself, and failing others. This is man’s one chance, you must give it to him,
    otherwise, he faces other planets, other times, other elsewheres, but no mere here. Scientology
    is not so much man’s first science of understanding as his last call to reason.” (PURPOSE – 1956
    by L. Ron Hubbard)
    Scientology is not based on opinion. It is based on observation of what is. The data
    and technology has been researched, tested and found to work when correctly applied. Scientology
    does not depend on belief or faith. It is somethings that WORKs , and produces incredible results,when exactly applied! The wisdom of Scientology is being made available. Each one of us should take the
    opportunity and learn to apply it and use it in our life. As we do, we’ll begin to feel happier,
    live better and play better games,and the complexity of the trap will begin to become
    evident to us. We may even have the desire to tell others about it so that they, too, can
    benefit. In telling another about Scientology, it is essential to do it correctly so that he gets the
    true picture of what Scientology actually is and not some incorrect, distorted idea.All criticism and antagonism against Scientology or Scientologists disappears on
    correctly presenting it,or when you,yourself,are a living example of correctly applying it in your daily life and are producing desirable results which are pro-survival for all. Scientology is the way through to personal freedom. Personal freedom does not mean
    that a person can do anything he cares to do. When a person,really, goes up scale, he only does things
    that are for the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics. He does not do things which will harm people and upset them.He has a higher level of ethics discipline than a person
    at a lower level. He is more himself. He is not inhibited, suppressed or subjected to compulsive
    actions. He is free of body pressure or somatics and is free to observe directly,to think and act for himself.
    That is personal freedom. Scientology is for able
    people. If we concentrate on disabled people, we are not going to make it. What we actually
    want is people who are able. We want people who can come in and become auditors, people
    who are able themselves right now. Scientology started off as a subject for the able person to
    become more able. At some later time we can help those who are not quite so able. But, if we
    don’t get the able person through, we won’t have anyone around anyway. You get the idea?
    What is an able person? An able person is one who is sufficiently aware and intelligent
    to look for himself and understand what you tell him about Scientology and about himself. If
    he can’t understand that, and is not prepared to look, then he is not very able. Don’t get the idea that able people have university degrees. They don’t. An able person
    has the ability to look and see for himself. He does not require “proof”. He knows.
