I haven't posted here in many years but I follow the thread from time to time to keep abreast of any news.
I still find myself often having thoughts/resentment with regards to this cult.
What really prompted me to post here was twofold: one, to offer thanks and support for the posters actively keeping this thread going, and, two, to offer some observations after having watched the Netflix documentary "Wild, Wild Country."
What struck me most was the incredulity expressed by Osho's lawyer (I cannot recall his name and it's not important) at how his guru could be treated so callously by the American authorities.
I am amazed at how a (seemingly intelligent) person can place such expectations on others.
Just because you see someone as "beautiful", why would you expect everyone to have the same experience or opinion?
This is the danger of these cults: the fanaticism. Something I witnessed often in the Butler cult and found quite appalling.
I consider myself of average intelligence,not erudite, not spiritually advanced, and yet even I have the understanding that any spiritual path or even mode of living that does not promote love and acceptance of others regardless of race, creed, religion, etc. as, to put it simply, suspect.
You can judge a tree by its fruits.
And Butler's fruits are rotten, imo.
Peace to you all!
