As long as the woman keeps thinking that her body is an asset, there is no freedom for her.
As long as the woman keeps thinking that freedom is about flaunting her body, there is no freedom for her.
The woman is the more oppressed of the two genders and therefore, the revolution must arise from the woman.
Woman by rebelling against the body will be the harbinger of the revolution that will liberate the entire mankind, women, and men, both included.
Woman gives birth to a man, woman will also need to give birth to the freedom of man. Man will not be able to give birth to his own freedom. Freedom too will be born out of the woman. That does not seem to be happening.
Woman remains terribly body identified. And that which you call as modernity or liberation, or even feminism, is unfortunately even more body-centric. It’s just that now the body centricity is a little hidden. There is only one way to go beyond the body and that is the way of truth, the way of spirituality. All other ways go from the body to the body.
So, you can go from veiling to revealing. But you are just going from the body to the body. What were you veiling? The body. And now what are you revealing? The body. All these great liberation movements have taken you from the body to the body. So, there is no liberation at all, you are just being cheated and fooled. The only way, the women can be liberated, is the spiritual way, the spiritual route. Ahhh! Now that sounds so old fashioned. Doesn’t it? In fact, you would love to say that religion is the curse of woman; that using religion, the woman has been confined and oppressed and what not. But all that was false religion. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.
If the woman can be saved, it is only through true spirituality because spirituality alone can take you out of your body identification.
