Cults will always go after the person doing the criticising,in order to devalue the points themselves. It's par for the course. I'm fine thanks, I'm grateful you put my healing front and center in your decision to post.
"His followers insist on worshipping him"
What about his friends, his peers? Fellow teachers who he came up with? Those things that keep someone healthy. How about those people? How do they treat him? If his daughter/partner won the fist fight, does she get a throne too? Or is it a fiefdom?
The cultural appropriation of bhakti aside, is the act of worshipping him actually raising anyone up but Mooji? What's the purpose of the adulation.
As mentioned in that great article I posted about the dynamics:
"You want something better, and you come across a group that offers it. Many aspects are indeed better--it is great! But what is not obvious is how this is brought about. In high-demand groups there is a hidden agenda at work behind the scenes - strong pressure and invasive control to shape the group to the leader's expectations, rather than an environment of nurture to encourage individual growth in grace. Growth takes time. High-demand dynamics produce impressive results, but the cost is spiritual abuse."
