If you make economics the only value of your life,
then world will become very male. There must be a world, where women can be hundred
percent feminine and still be absolutely successful. Money should not be the ruling factor. Question Slide: We’ve heard of the “glass ceiling” for women. What can society do so that women can succeed more? Sadhguru: Well, a woman is… a woman is not a separate
species, first of all (Laughter/Applause). This too much of man-woman thing
is being done, unfortunately. It’s a small biological difference to serve a
certain purpose. We’re all here today because of this difference, yes?
So we don’t have to treat woman like separate species. There was a time when the world was such, that
a woman couldn’t really go out and do much, because of the nature of the world around.
Suppose right now… you know… I don’t know, maybe 2-3000 people turned up from
many parts of the world for yesterday’s event in Kashi. I think in this more than sixty percent are women.
Now suppose this was 1000 years ago, it would be ninety-five percent men, only five
percent women maybe, because to travel by walk or by… on a horseback and
to come to Kashi from thousand miles away, would be a challenging thing for a woman,
would not be very safe for a woman, those days. But today, you must understand, it’s not your liberal
attitude which has brought woman reasonably level, just technology. Technology
has leveled the difference because your big muscle is no more useful,
you need some brain (Applause). When man’s muscle did everything on this planet
naturally man was dominant. This dominance also is misunderstood. He dominated
in one arena which was filmed and reported, she dominated in a different arena
which was private and not reported. (Applause) If you make economics the only value of your life,
money is the only prime value in your life then world will become very male because there
will be no room for the feminine to find expression. They may be women but they will surrender
their feminine to be successful unfortunately. This should not happen. Women should
succeed as women not as men (Applause) with full-blown feminine nature they
must be able to be successful in a society. They don’t have to be pretend to be a man
to be successful. This has to go. If this has to go the world has to move
completely from brawn to brain, it’s very important, this transition (Applause). Now when
you talk about economy or money power it’s brawn, it’s a different kind of muscle. So we are taking away the
physical muscle and bringing in the money muscle. So once again you are creating a male
dominated society, masculine dominated society because now women have understood
how to be successful by being masculine. No, this is not a good thing for the world.
There must be a world, where women can be hundred percent feminine
and still be absolutely successful. If this has to happen money should not be
the ruling factor, it should be just currency. Money is just currency to facilitate things
but right now, money is the ruling factor so masculine becomes the dominant force.
We need to change this. Unless music, aesthetics, love, beauty and other things,
everything becomes equal proportions, feminine will not flourish and if feminine
is wiped out of this planet then all the men will sit and wonder
“Why are we living” (Applause).
