questions while watching Wild, Wild Country


does this mean i need to reassess my entire tarot practice, since i began with Osho?*

what do these people believe in?

why is sexual satisfaction so scary to people who are officially committed to procreation?

can a small town be racist and also have a point (no flood-of-people-dressed-in-one-color feels like it would just be chill)?

is sheela my hero, and the most competent secretary in history?

is sheela evil??

could sheela exist without bhagwan?

did sheela & bhagwan just put capitalism behind all the things we believe in?

is capitalism what killed this experiment? or is it worshipfulness? or…?

wait, he’s bill clintoning her?

wait, there’s a price on Assata’s head but this pleasant Australian killer lady just out here?**

oooh is this a tale of a bad breakup?

he came out of silence to beef? #sacredpettiness! #pettyguru!

how do we resist/avoid the conditions that create bhagwan? wait, for real where did he begin?***

how do we cultivate loyalty to each other and ideas without the groupthink follower energy of a cult?

is sheela the rib of bhagwan? the root? the container? enabler? mirror? the cold heart? or…?

ok…but is it still possible to have a diverse sexy stylish wild free love back to the earth commune? or is it like fundamentally a jurassic park level dangerous idea no matter what?

* that deck is fire though
** brought to my attention by Janine
*** i need a prequel

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
