Silence, Charisma and Power: The Case of John de Ruiter

[www.researchgate.net]

Quote

Charismatic authority, as Max Weber originally conceived it, is predicated on followers’ perceptions that their leader possesses superhuman or extraordinary powers. This article points to a novel link between silence and charismatic authority by examining the new religious movement (NRM) led by John de Ruiter and showing the important role that interpersonal silence plays in the social construction of his superhuman status.

Specifically, de Ruiter's management of three distinct aspects or qualities of interpersonal silence allows him to perform seemingly miraculous feats for his devotees.

Firstly, the projection-eliciting aspect, of interpersonal silence fosters the belief within devotees that de Ruiter has the ability to speak to the specific personal needs of people whom he has never met.

Secondly, the punitive aspect of silence enables de Ruiter to perform superhuman displays of power over others at meetings.

Thirdly, de Ruiter's use of silence fosters the belief that he has a miraculous ability to form intimate bonds with complete strangers, simply by gazing at them. To familiarize readers with this NRM, the article begins with a description of the group's culture, belief system, form of worship, methods of generating revenue, and recruitment strategies.

Hi guys,

I just want to say this:
I dont think Mooji has, or is a cult.
I've seen lot of videos from him, and as far as i can see he seeks to direct people towards the Consciousness of "being", that we truely are.

If anyone thinks of this differently, I would like them to respond with a list of reasons why they consider Mooji to be a cult.

For examply:
- aggressive behaviour
- sexual abuse
- greedy ways generete extra income out of others
- inappropriate ways of(aggressive) communication and words

This kind of things.
I would like to see clear evidence.

I am saying this because there is a lot of fear in the world, from which people can, (way too) quickly, impulsively jump on anyone and say "this is a cult"

Maybe from their own traumatic experience, maybe from drug abuse, can be anything.

I just wish to stress this, as i think of, that people can suffer strongly from others who misjudge things from their own narrow-minded perspectives.

It is very hard for human beings, this is in general so no one is exceptional, to judge quickly, which most often, come from, what they already know.
From past experiences.

this is what motivates me to ask this kind of proof an bring forward my view.
Once more i'd like to tell you, i have no experience with him at all.

I do have been inspired by videos from him, and they have served me well in the past, to generate mindstates and spiritual experiences which allowed me to be more in control of myself, more in love and awareness, less in fear and leaking energy. Abundance vs leaking.

And whatever teaching brings you to abundance (joy, love etc), is what benefits.

If teaching leads to mass-orgies and stuff, obvious is leaking energy.
just to give simple example, with which some are (frustratedly) familiar with.
For this seems to happen.

However we must be careful not to get convicted that this is very often the case. That this is allways the case. It is not.
This is not what we want to create also, dont we?
(Law of Attraction) - so we need to be careful with our believes and judgements. A lot of activity can come forth from one simple, perhaps false statement. And i wish, no people need to suffer from such things.

Thank you.
