TAGR #10: Sex Transmutation
Number ten is, by far, the most controversial aspect of the entire program. When TAGR was first published, this chapter had to have been an absolute scandal. Subsequent editions often pruned this chapter, most commentaries ignore it, and some of the “modern” versions are woefully inadequate.
Basically through interview, study and observation of famous, successful men (and a few women) Hill came to the conclusion that, among other things:
1) “Sex Transmutation” is the ability to adapt sexual energy into creative inspiration and work.
2) Men rarely reach their peak of productiveness before their 50’s, due to their wasting of this energy.
3) The combined emotions of faith, love, and sex create a tsunami of motivation and action.
It astounds me that this chapter ever got written. Even more that the staggering implications have sat in plain sight for eighty years, and are so rarely discussed.
The simple interpretation is that sex is a powerful emotion, representing the most powerful positive sensation the human nervous system can process. “Anchoring” this energy to the tasks one must accomplish to reach goals is a no-brainer.
A more esoteric interpretation includes models of human sexuality from yoga, Tantrism, Native American practices and others, suggesting that the intensity of an orgasm is in direct proportion to the amount of ego one releases at the moment of truth. The thought of using sex to access deeper and higher consciousness has been taught for centuries…but not in the West.
We’re going to revisit this later, I promise!
The 101 Program uses the yogic Chakras to diagram human capacity, including the mysteries of “muladhara” the sexual aspect. A modern collection of techniques and technologies for reaching a mental and physical peak, the 101 Program can be purchased at:
