In another chapter Hill tell tells us that we have to check ourselves up against intemperence in our lives in three different areas. One being over indulgence in food, two being over indulgence in alcohol and the third being over indulgence in sex.

Hill tells us that “Sex energy is the creative energy of all genii. There never has been, and never will be a great leader, builder, or artist lacking in this driving force of sex and he says a river may be dammed, and its water controlled for a time, but eventually, it will force an outlet. The same is true of the emotion of sex. It may be submerged and controlled for a time, but its very nature causes it to be ever seeking means of expression. If it is not transmuted into some creative effort it will find a less worthy outlet.

So it has to be controlled and regulated. Just like the air braking system on a big truck there has to be a safe operating range. There is a system to keep that air pressure in that safe range. If the air pressure gets too high there is a cut off valve at 120 psi so that it doesn’t go any higher. If the pressure drops to around 60 psi there is a low air warning device to alert you it is getting dangerously low and if it drops to around 30 psi the emergency brakes are automatically activated bringing everything to a halt including the truck. Just like that air brake system we need a system of controlling sexual urges and instead of submitting to them, changing them into other more productive avenues.

Hill tells us also that “Sex energy is the creative energy of all genii. There never has been, and never will be a great leader, builder, or artist lacking in this driving force of sex.” But again like the air brakes it has to be regulated by mixing it with love and transmuting it into other outlets. When that takes place you can operate in a creative state where you can receive ideas or hunches being lifted high above the clouds like a plane where you can see many things you couldn’t see on the  ground and by doing that be lifted to the status of a genius. Hill says "The great artists, writers, musicians, and poets become great, because they acquire the habit of relying upon the “still small voice” which speaks from within, through the faculty of creative imagination. It is a fact well known to people who have “keen” imaginations that their best ideas come through so called “hunches.”

I find it interesting that on the 10 mind stimuli list sex and love are number 1 and 2, even more important that the desire for wealth itself. Hill says “The emotion of sex contains the secret of creative ability.Destroy the sex glands, whether in man or beast, and you have removed the major source of action.” What’s missing most of the time in our desire for wealth? I think that would be action.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for providing this outstanding mastermind that we talked about in last weeks lesson so that we can learn how to attaining that creative state that will lift us high above the clouds like that airplane so we can see things that we could never see before finding this program. Those gurus that ask for your credit cards in exchange for the “magic bullet” just can’t package this. It’s takes a little desire and effort. And thanks to all my mastermind partners and friends for sharing your brilliance each week. Merry Christmas to all and a prosperous 2019.
