The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
“A better definition of genius is, ‘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.”
The whole purpose of this chapter is to discuss ways of developing the ability to communicate with Infinite Intelligence through the sixth sense or the creative imagination. This is by way of preparation for the chapter on the sixth sense.
Hill goes through the ten different ways of stimulating the mind to send effective messages to Infinite Intelligence, through the subconscious mind, for help to solve problems relating to a person’s life-purpose. The mind will only be stimulated by the emotions and not by cold reason. Because it is the most powerful of the emotions, the desire for sexual expression can be harnessed to stimulate the mind to fever pitch if the energy generated by it can be channeled for that purpose.
When the emotion of sex is tempered by the emotions of love and romance the individual is in a good position to moderate and control it. He advises encouraging the “calmness of purpose, poise, accuracy of judgment and balance” brought about by the combining of love and romance with sex and the discouraging of the potential destructive force of sex alone.
This can only be done, in my opinion, by having a definite life-purpose and by using autosuggestion to gain control of the mind in order to realize that purpose. When the mind is under control, negative destructive thoughts can be mastered and the good habits which Hill talks about established. He says, “The mind is a creature of habit. It thrives upon the dominating thoughts fed it. Through the faculty of will power, one may discourage the presence of any emotion and encourage the presence of any other. Control of the mind through the power of will is not difficult. Control comes from persistence and habit.”
In conclusion then, the power of sexual energy and of any of the eight positive emotions mentioned by Hill can be used to ‘key up’ the mind to high rates of vibration so as to attract inspiration from Infinite Intelligence.
Regards and best wishes to all.
