For me, understanding sex transmutation is easier when I think of it as a temporary change of direction of the physical and mental energy focus from one topic to another.
Hill tells us “The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind. Because of ignorance on the subject, this state of mind is generally associated with the physical, and because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected, in acquiring knowledge of sex, things essentially physical have highly biased the mind”. Certainly, the introduction to and education of sex itself in our so called modern times is very much different to what would have been usual when these words were first written, which is either good or bad depending on your point of view.
What is certain though is the amount of sheer raw energy and focus aroused and the harnessing of that energy will have changed little, nor will the amount of willpower required to properly channel all that energy.
We read “The emotion of sex has back of it the possibility of three constructive potentialities, they are: —
1. The perpetuation of mankind. 2. The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agency, it has no equal). 3. The trans formation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation”.
We also read “Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, willpower, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. So, strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it.
Scientific research has disclosed these significant facts:
1. The men of greatest achievement are men with highly developed sex natures; men who have learned the art of sex transmutation.
2. The men who have accumulated great fortunes and achieved outstanding recognition in literature, art, industry, architecture, and the professions, were motivated by the influence of a woman.
The research from which these astounding discoveries were made, went back through the pages of biography and history for more than two thousand years. Wherever there was evidence available about the lives of men and women of great achievement, it indicated most convincingly that they possessed highly developed sex natures.
Certainly from Genghis Kahn through Henry the Eight to Bill Clinton, history is littered with examples of Presidents, Kings, great Political and Industrial leaders almost as notorious for their sexual exploits as they were famous for the more public activities.
Later in this chapter, Hill also list ten things which most stimulate the mind to action and although sex is at the top of that list, also within the ‘Top Ten’ come some which will be familiar to every Mentoring for Free member
A burning desire for fame, power and money.
A Mastermind Alliance
This suggests that, Ignoring Narcotics and Alcoh, both of which have far more negative than positive influence on the brain, almost half of the most desirable drivers for success are being met simply by being where we are today, in the company of coaches and mentors happy to bring the most positive of influences to each life they touch.
