It’s been interesting, I’ve been talking with my father about some of his friendships. He is retired, and he is noticing that some of his friendships with ex-colleagues are changing, he is noticing that some of them are not as upright and straightforward as he himself would prefer them to be.
Instead he is finding some people have a certain prejudice towards Osho and some rigid opinions based on negative media coverage back in the day. But then they don’t talk to him about his time in the communes out of ‘respect’, and so some things are never discussed among friends.
So now he finds one of these friends is setting himself up as kind of a mini-guru, with a group of women who all go and do yoga and cold-water swimming. It’s led to a few fiery exchanges.
