Ctrl/Cmd+V The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
This chapter is about stimulating your mind so as to convert a potential into an actual genius. According to Hill, the main stimulants, in order of stimulating power, are: “1.The desire for sex expression; 2. Love; 3. A burning desire for fame, power, financial gain, or money; 4. Music; 5. Friendship between either those of the same sex or those of the opposite sex; 6. A Mastermind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement; 7. Mutual suffering, such as that experienced by people who are persecuted; 8. Autosuggestion; 9. Fear; 10. Narcotics and alcohol.”
Why does he place sex expression at the head of his list? He says that sex expression when transmuted produces “keenness of imagination, courage, will power, persistence, and creative ability” greater than that produced by any of the other mind stimulants. He defines ‘transmute’ as “the changing, or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.” The desire for sex expression is the most powerful of human desires and does not recognize any opposition in its way. So, switching one’s energy from sex expression to, for example, achieving success in a business venture can radically change one’s financial prospects.
He defines genius as: “a man who has discovered how to increase the intensity of thought to the point where he can freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary rate of thought.” When in that level of thought, the sixth sense or creative imagination begins to function and receives inspirations and promptings from the universe and more especially from God (Hill’s Infinite Intelligence). The “still small voice” speaks to the person from within, through the faculty of the creative imagination and the quality of thought is lifted way above the ordinary. The person who is aware of the process and deliberately cultivates and develops the sixth sense by using a mind stimulant is on the way to becoming a genius. Genius can be the product of any of the first eight mind stimulants because the last two are unreliable and destructive in nature.
Hill speaks about how sex expression can be transmuted by using will power to switch thoughts from physical expression and channelling them to creative endeavours, such as succeeding in business. This can be achieved by using persistence and habit and by tempering the emotion of sex with that of love. This, he says, brings about “calmness of purpose, poise, accuracy of judgment and balance.”
Whatever mind stimulant is used, the person’s ultimate goal or purpose must be clearly defined, planned and backed up by a suitable reinforcing self-talk, said many times daily.
Regards and best wishes to all.
