Alone the saying "the balance of the recording describes how the artist can overcome human tendencies such as jealousy, fear, and addiction." sounds strange. How should someone, here an artists, overcome human tendencies? That's nonsense, if you ask me. Why not becoming an Operating Thetan?
apart from that, I agree with Lunatique.
You're not saying you'd be giving in to something like jealousy and kill someone over that. I'm betting you wouldn't anbd have somewhat overcome that in yourself . It's not only scientology, it's also philosophy, love for wisdom literally translated from greek.
