Revolution of the head will be political, because it will be violent. The thinking process is a process of violence. Thought is a rapist – it dissects, it kills, it cuts into fragments. That’s why science cannot say anything about the whole. It goes on dividing and dividing and dividing; it talks about the smallest, it does not talk about the total at all. It has no conception of the total – the total is completely forgotten, as if the total does not exist. As if all that exists are electrons, neutrons and positrons. And soon they will be dividing them too. They go on dividing.
That is the process of the mind. Mind divides, love unites. Religions talk about God, the total, the whole; they don’t talk about the part or the fragment. But religion remains lopsided, just as lopsided as science.
A new vision is needed in the world – a new vision which will be as scientific as possible and as religious as possible. That I call revolution. The world is waiting for that revolution, the world is hungry for that revolution – where religion and science can disappear into each other, where East and West can become one for the first time, where the materialist and the spiritualist are no longer enemies, but are holding hands in deep friendship. Because that is what is happening in life itself: matter is holding hands with spirit. The materialist need not be against the spiritualist, nor need the spiritualist be against the materialist. That is stupid. And that stupidity has lasted really too long and man has suffered too much.
The revolution that is hot, heady, sharp, is bound to remain superficial. And the revolution that comes from love will go deep, will arise from the very center. But remember, you are not to choose the center against the circumference – because without the circumference the center cannot exist, just as the circumference cannot exist without the center. They go together. The center is the center only because there is a circumference, and the circumference is a circumference only because there is a center. Take one away and the other disappears.
If man remains alone on the earth and all the women are destroyed, do you think man will last long? – or vice versa. That’s what has been happening. Man has created a culture, a society, which has not taken any note of the woman. That’s why this society is ugly and this culture is crippled. That’s why humanity is paralyzed – only half has been dominating and the other half has not even been consulted, the other half has not been allowed its say.
All human societies up to now have suffered tremendously. There have been wars and wars and wars – the whole history of humanity consists only of fighting and violence and murder. The heart is not allowed any place in it; the woman exists almost in a non-existential way. This is the misery. The woman has to be accepted, respected: the woman will bring balance. The woman represents the other half, the opposite. Man alone is only half the story.
The revolution that is only of the head is masculine, and the revolution that is only of the heart is feminine. Both are not total revolutions. The total revolution will be a balance, a symphony; the woman and the man singing in chorus, singing the same song from two different angles. The song is one, the singers are two – they meet in the song, they merge in the song. That song will have beauty, utter beauty.
