As a college student, when I read the following words by Sigmund Freud about Leonardo da Vinci, I became fascinated and determined to learn how to use the lesson in my own studies and life (the words were written in 1910 while discussing "Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of His Childhood") ....
Sibmud Freud said, "In reality, Leonardo was not devoid of passion; he did not lack the divine spark which is directly or indirectly the driving force --il primo motore--behind all human activity. He had merely converted his passion into a thirst for knowledge; he then applied himself to investigation with the persistence, constancy and penetration which is derived from passion, and at the climax of intellectual labor, when knowledge had been won, he allowed the long restrained affect to break loose and to flow away freely, as a stream of water drawn from a river is allowed to flow away when its work is done. When, at the climax of a discovery, he could survey a large portion of the whole nexus, he was overcome by emotion, and in ecstatic language praised the splendor of the part of creation that he had studied, or--in religious phraseology--the greatness of his Creator. This process of transformation [transmutation] in Leonardo has been rightly understood by Solmi. After quoting a passage of this sort in which Leonardo celebrates the sublime law of nature, he writes "Such a transfiguration of natural science into a sort of religious emotion is one of the characteristic features of Leonardo's manuscripts and there are hundreds and hundreds of examples of it."
No, I do not claim to be another Leonardo. But, I have experimented with this technique (sex transmutation) for the past 20 years and have found the process to be of great help (while working as reasearch chemist, news paper reporter, personal trainer, ER physician, research physician, author, and father and husband).
Last week, I received a phone call from a professor of world religion (from a college in another state) asking me to explain in more detail how I put into practice this idea of sex transmutation to help with health, intellectual pursuits, and sexual function. This was the second such call within the week (the first was from a professor of computer science). As I spoke with him and realized that during our 30 minute conversation I was only able to tell him a fraction of what I wanted him to know, I knew that I needed to put together a more detailed explanation about what to do to actually live by the cycle and learn the sex surfing technique.
Tip #1: One technique that helped me transmute energy over the years is listening to spoken word recordings while falling asleep (to help redirect the mind). But it makes a huge difference which tapes I use.
An email describing the techniques would be too long, and I'm not sure the topic deserves another book; so, I've put together an audio course (two CD's). This CD is not a beginning course. This should only be tried after working with the original course (Anytime...for as Long as You Want, Strength, Genius, Libido, & Erection by Integrative Sex Transmutation) for at least two weeks (which describes more of the theory behind sex transmutation and introduces you to the technique). In this more advanced course, I give the following techniques:
- What to do if you're married and want to apply transmutation to your work.
- How to live by the cycle if you are a teenager or in your early 20's.
- How to use the technique
- More specifically what to do about "blue balls."
- How sex transmutation improves prostate health (and why frequent ejaculation for prostate problems may be bad advice).
- How to talk with your girl friend or wife about sex transmutation
- How to use sex transmutation to help solve a specific problem or challenge.
- How sex transmutation helps with depression
The course is available from my office to ship after September the 20th. Pre-publication orders (before September 20) can have the course for $12. After that, the price will go to $19.85.
Use the tips in this 2-CD course for as long as you want. If you do not think the course gives you much more that what you paid, return any time for a refund (I only ask that you at least try the techniques for at least two weeks. Some of the techniques seem simple but are very powerful).
Tip #2: Another technique for transmutation was described by Freud as follows: "replace its [sex urge] immediate aim by other aims which may be valued more hightly and which are not sexual." To do this I've found it helps to go to have a well documented list of goals and be working to achieve them. King David got into trouble when he was home spying on the neighbor taking a bath while his soldiers were at war. When he took his eye off the more improtant repsonsibilities, the sex urge got him in trouble and drained rather than strengthened. It's practical tips like this that I discuss in this supplemental course.
