He said, “Even if you give me them for free, at this moment it is too cold. I cannot take my hands out of my pockets, and without taking my hands out of my pockets, I cannot speak.”
From the lowest – that is the body – everything is connected. Yoga has worked on the body. It is a long process, arduous, and perhaps has no future unless science joins hands with it and helps it. Then perhaps it may have an explosion. It is one of the most ancient sciences developed by man – five thousand years old at least. If it is not going to join hands with science, then yoga is asking too much. And the modern man cannot afford that much; shorter ways have to be found.
If you are working with the mind…and that is a shorter way than the body and the work is easier, because with the mind nothing much has to be done, only awareness, only watchfulness – no psychoanalysis. That is again prolonging the process unnecessarily.
Yoga at least comes to an end. Psychoanalysis never comes to an end because the mind goes on creating garbage every day; it is very productive. You go on sorting out dreams and it goes on creating new dreams. It is so clever that it can manage a dream in which you see that you are sleeping and having a dream, and in the dream you have fallen asleep and are again seeing a dream. It can be very complicated. And analyzing all this rubbish helps a little bit, gives a little relief, but it is a non-ending process.
Those who have really worked with the mind have worked with watchfulness, witnessing. And as you witness the mind, the mind slowly starts becoming silent, stops its gibberish, becomes calm and quiet. And as the mind becomes calm and quiet your body will go through changes, amazing changes, and that’s what is happening. You will see that the body is behaving in new ways; it has never behaved like this. It is walking differently, its gestures have changed.
You know perfectly well: just by seeing somebody walk you can say whether the man is homosexual or heterosexual. What does the walk have to do with homosexuality? But the homosexual’s mind changes his walk. Although he cannot manage to walk like a woman because he does not have a womb – without a womb he cannot walk like a woman – he cannot walk like a man either, because mentally he has dropped out of heterosexuality. He is walking in a certain way which is neither of man nor of woman, and you can see it. And it is universal: anywhere the homosexual will walk the same way, and he will be recognized by his walk.
Now there are many governments making homosexuality illegal, criminal, and homosexuals are thinking to go underground. They cannot go: their walk will reveal them, they will be caught immediately. Thieves can go underground because there is nothing visible with which you can catch hold of them, but homosexuals cannot change their walk. If they change their walk, their homosexuality will change; they are interconnected.
