I'm learning to not automatically default to "nice" when strangers contact me. Otherwise I could be easily swept away. I can be assertive, watchful, relaxed while being alert. If someone physically or metaphorically sidles up beside me and starts defining the two of us as in the same boat, I don't have to be nice or smile or agreeable. I can walk away from the boat. For

About the guns: QuoteWeapons dealers across the country said the commune had bought at least 28 military-style semiautomatic weapons, including 13 Uzi carbines and 15 Galil assault rifles, since the fall of 1984. It also acquired at least one Remington Model 700 bolt-action rifle with a telescope sight. Individual Rajneeshees bought at least 16 other weapons, though it wasn’t clear where th

Good series on the Rajneeshee commune QuoteEditor's note: In a nearly unbelievable chapter of Oregon history, a guru from India gathered 2,000 followers to live on a remote eastern Oregon ranch. The dream collapsed 25 years ago amid attempted murders, criminal charges and deportations. But the whole story was never made public. With first-ever access to government files, and some part

In recent videos Trinity tells us that he has ended a relationship and that this is a good thing. He says he is in northern Thailand. I suppose if we asked him how he affords all this travel, he would claim that he "manifested". I'll paste in below a copy of some of his text rhetoric that is posted with a video. I'm not able to sit through a half hour Trinity video but I do

Concerned Wife, there is some more info on Beckwith here I also recommend Rick Ross' book Cults Inside Out: How People Get In and Can Get Out. Ross clearly lays out how to research problematic groups and leaders. Also how to educate loved ones who have maybe fallen under sway of charismatic leaders.

"The Great Silence" looks to have Theosophical and Rosicrucian origins. Those movements probably took the phrase from earlier teachings.

I was recruited into going to a Forum weekend by a friend. This friend was part of group of people that I considered cooler than me, I aspired to be as creative and interesting as them. They were Rajneesh disciples and all had major issues, but I viewed them as superior. I dutifully did the weekend. I realized that this wasn't going to help include me into that circle of friends, they w

QuoteSome reported good experiences down there. But two people — Sulastri de Andrade, who hosted some of Trinity's retreats, and Clifton Thomas, who attended one — says they were a mess. For one thing, the leaders were inexperienced. One was living in a tent before Trinity took her in, another was a street performer, playing music in the town plaza with a group of "hippies," Sul

In this interview, Marc Shackman says that attributes like connecting with nature make a person Native American. So, neither Trinity or Marc, know what the hell they are talking about.
