Chapter 11, Sex Transmutation
“To Sex and To Be Sexed” are complementary goals low on the scale of goals, “To Create” is the highest goal that one can transmute their energetic desires up
into. Combine that with the knowledge that Pure Aesthetics is the highest sensation, then one sees why painters paint and composers compose, etc,
I had a very interesting insight into this when I lived in France. As usual, I walked home through an old old district that was once where craftsmen worked and sold their goods. Well, one day while walking on a 20th century concrete sidewalk I was suddenly in my mind transported to a scene of a tall handsome man in a room that was made of rough hewn large square stones, and the room was lit with candle-light. Not only did I see that but I “felt” the man’s energies and his intensity. I could literally feel the testosterone flowing through his body, and he was doing nothing more than designing a pair of shoes for some well-to-do lady. He was a shoemaker for the rich. That was a brief vision, but it made such a deep impression on me for, being a woman, I had not realized how powerful this unadulterated male hormone could be. That sums up for me what Napoleon Hill means when he speaks of transmutation of sexual energies and hormonal flows.
But first had to come the desire: What did that shoemaker desire? Then came the task he set himself to in the hopes of fulfilling that desire: designing a pair of shoes. The only thing I picked up from his mind was that the very act of creating was in and of itself enough to give him the sensations he sought. The act of being in that zone of create was its own reward. However, I’m certain, that with that kind of directed energy, enhanced by his measured skill, it spoke to someone else’s aesthetic pleasures, and he had no problems getting a clientele that liked his craftsmanship, his designs. The male energy calls to the female energy on a level beyond physicality, into aesthetic flows. What better way to beckon a glamorous social butterfly! Oh, those were the good old times.
Today, as one with many aesthetic hangups, I can relate thoroughly. There are times when I too get into a zone of create, although being female, it is not the same hormone, but nevertheless just as addictive. And it is the female energies seeking to merge with the male energies, although not physically per se.
I am very very aware of all types of sexual flows and could speak volumes about it, and about art and artists, but it no longer aligns with my highest goal, which is beyond aesthetics, although for now beautiful enough to entice me: Plain air is plain air, and I am not yet divested enough of my mental programs to give what is above sex and aesthetics its proper due.
Mr. Hill writes: “The desire cannot, and should not be submerged or eliminated. But it should be given an outlet through forms of expression which enrich the body, mind, and spirit of man. If not given this form of outlet, through transmutation, it will seek outlets through purely physical channels.”
This week I stopped suppressing the joy of creating and felt that old resurgence of creative license. It was the best I had felt in over a year. It was short-lived though because in further meditation I realized that I would simply be creating more time and space, so I cautioned myself. And upon even further meditation I realized that I could create if I did it with the attitude of “Create and donate”. Lamentably, nothing I can think of to create does not already exist in The Creation. In the words of Solomon, “there is nothing new under the sun”. However, my creative visualizations have very much ramped up and taken wider expression since I allowed myself the joy of creating.
My creative visualizations use the energies Mr. Hill speaks of and I flow it all around myself. I also pick up on what others wish to see brought into existence and I do the same for them too. If you do not know what the other wishes to create how can you serve him, and be mutually rewarded. It begins to border on telepathy or knowing-ness.
Is this not similar to what Michael Dlouhy does when he looks at our photos? In listening to one of Sarah Thompson’s recordings, she said that she made herself know the mind and purpose of Michael Dlouhy so as to be complementary and helpful to what he wished to create. She succeeded riotously.
Yes, “genius”, I agree with what Mr. Hill says, and in my own words, it is one who can be “connected up” and bypass the fixed solutions of the mind. I’ve seen it in some of the self-realized masters and the words they speak and their demeanor. My personal genius is still erratic, thus I attend the 30-day mental cleanse, and it has a good effect on me.
I agree with Mr. Hill that a successful inventor wisely stays within the realm of just a hair outside the realm of conventional realities. Those who don’t, don’t live to see their vindication. Walter Russell, a physicist and author of “The Secret of Light” is an example of a man too far ahead of his time. He had Lao Russell as his impetus. Rembrandt could only privately dare to pen and ink his futuristic contraptions and concepts.
As for a woman nurturing the man, well, as a woman, I am in need of more knowledge on this subject: I like to see the genius in a man and help him bring it out, and I like to be appreciated for that. For men, I would suggest the book titled, “The Tao of Love and Sex”, about a Chinese emperor with many wives who sought the wisdom of one of his counselors.
A lot of food for thought in this chapter because it deals with a hot topic, and I wish everyone a harmonious Mastermind group.
