When driven by his desire to please a woman, based solely upon the emotion of sex, a man may be, andusually is, capable of great achievement, but his actions may be disorganized, distorted, and totally destructive.When driven by his desire to please a woman, based upon the motive of sex alone, a man may steal, cheat, andeven commit murder. But when the emotion of LOVE is mixed with the emotion of sex, that same man willguide his actions with more sanity, balance, and reason.
Criminologists have discovered that the most hardened criminals can be reformed through the influence of awoman's love. There is no record of a criminal having been reformed solely through the sex influence. Thesefacts are well known, but their cause is not. Reformation comes, if at all, through the heart, or the emotionalside of man, not through his head, or reasoning side. Reformation means, "a change of heart." It does not meana "change of head." A man may, because of reason, make certain changes in his personal conduct to avoid theconsequences of undesirable effects, but GENUINE REFORMATION comes only through a change ofheart-through a DESIRE to change.
Love, Romance, and Sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement. Love is theemotion which serves as a safety valve, and insures balance, poise, and constructive effort. When combined,these three emotions may lift one to an altitude of a genius. There are genii, however, who know but little ofthe emotion of love. Most of them may be found engaged in some form of action which is destructive, or atleast, not based upon justice and fairness toward others. If good taste would permit, a dozen genii could benamed in the field of industry and finance, who ride ruthlessly over the rights of their fellow men. They seemtotally lacking in conscience. The reader can easily supply his own list of such men.
The emotions are states of mind. Nature has provided man with a "chemistry of the mind" which operates in amanner similar to the principles of chemistry of matter. It is a well known fact that, through the aid ofchemistry of matter, a chemist may create a deadly poison by mixing certain elements, none of which are-inthemselves-harmful in the right proportions. The emotions may, likewise, be combined so as to create adeadly poison. The emotions of sex and jealousy, when mixed, may turn a person into an insane beast.
The presence of any one or more of the destructive emotions in the human mind, through the chemistry of themind, sets up a poison which may destroy one's sense of justice and fairness. In extreme cases, the presence ofany combination of these emotions in the mind may destroy one's reason.
The road to genius consists of the development, control, and use of sex, love, and romance. Briefly, theprocess may be stated as follows: Encourage the presence of these emotions as the dominating thoughts inone's mind, and discourage the presence of all the destructive emotions. The mind is a creature of habit. Itthrives upon the dominating thoughts fed it. Through the faculty of will-power, one may discourage thepresence of any emotion, and encourage the presence of any other. Control of the mind, through the power ofwill, is not difficult. Control comes from persistence, and habit. The secret of control lies in understanding theprocess of transmutation. When any negative emotion presents itself in one's mind, it can be transmuted into apositive, or constructive emotion, by the simple procedure of changing one's thoughts.
THERE IS NO OTHER ROAD TO GENIUS THAN THROUGH VOLUNTARY SELF EFFORT! A manmay attain to great heights of financial or business achievement, solely by the driving force of sex energy, buthistory is filled with evidence that he may, and usually does, carry with him certain traits of character whichrob him of the ability to either hold, or enjoy his fortune. This is worthy of analysis, thought, and meditation,for it states a truth, the knowledge of which may be helpful to women as well as men. Ignorance of this hascost thousands of people their privilege of HAPPINESS, even though they possessed riches.The emotions of love and sex leave their unmistakable marks upon the features. Moreover, these signs are sovisible, that all who wish may read them. The man who is driven by the storm of passion, based upon sexdesires alone, plainly advertises that fact to the entire world, by the expression of his eyes, and the lines of hisface. The emotion of love, when mixed with the emotion of sex, softens, modifies, and beautifies the facialexpression. No character analyst is needed to tell you this-you may observe it for yourself.
The emotion of love brings out, and develops, the artistic and the aesthetic nature of man. It leaves its impressupon one's very soul, even after the fire has been subdued by time and circumstance.
如果仅基于性激情，在取悦女性的欲望驱使下，男人可能也会具备获得伟大成就的能力， 但其行为可能紊乱、扭曲，而且完全具有破坏性。在纯粹的性动机之下，男人为了取悦女性， 可能会去偷窃、去欺骗，甚至去杀人。可是当性激情里有了爱的情感之后，同样一个人就可能会更明智、心态更平和地引导自己的行为。
情感是一种心态。自然赋予了人类"心理催化剂"，它的原理近似于物质的化学变化。大家都知道，通过化学变化，化学家可以将数种化学成分混合起来， 制成致命的毒药，而那些成分如果剂量适当， 本身没有一种是有害的。
鼓励这些情感的出现， 让其成为心中的主宰意念， 并抑制所有破坏性情感的产生。心理是习惯的产物，它会依赖灌输其中的主宰意念而茁壮成长。通过意志力的作用，人可以抑制任何情感的产生，也可以助长任何情感的产生。
要想成为天才，除了通过自我努力之外， 别无其他途径！一个人也许可以仅在性的驱动下，到达经济或事业成就的巅峰，但历史的证据也充分显示出，这些人可能（ 且通常如此）在性格上具有某些特质，从而剥夺他守住或享受财富的能力。这一点很值得我们分析、考虑与沉思， 因
