“Love, Romance and Sex – these are our natural, positive emotions…
Maintain their sanctity.
When you blend these three emotions, a mighty force is born.
Through marriage and intimacy,
you give a physical outlet to this force.
However, if you learn to transmute this force into the work you do,
You will see miracles… the birth of a genius.”
Love is the most beautiful of all human emotions. And romantic love is, in deed, romantic!
If God Himself couldn’t see Adam feeling lonely in the lovely Eden Garden, and if He had desired man to be happy and fulfilled in the love and company of a woman – which had prompted Him to create Eve - then, romantic love has to be divine. It is blessed by God Himself!
Intimate love, is intended to be very, very sacred… It is intended to be respected, honored, celebrated and cherished. It comes with great responsibility. If romantic love has to enrich life, it should come from very, very stable relationships…
Casual relationships breed casual love, casual intimacy… It is doomed to frustrate you.
Love is not lust…
Love can not be a fling!
If you take romantic love as a fling, very casual – then, everything else about it will be casual… Sex is a natural expression of intimacy in love… In matrimony - marriage - sex is sanctified…
It is better that way… the old way!
It is better to resist lust – the carnal temptations of the flesh… It is better to know what is true joy and fulfillment and what is only an illusory pleasure.
Dear, if love is one of the most powerful human emotions, the need to express it is the most driving-urge of all human urges. It is a powerful energy and it constantly seeks an outlet to express itself… When you blend love with romance and sex, a mighty force is born… Yes, this is an important driving force behind human creativity… Therefore, it is wise not to suppress this energy… It is wise to express it the way God had intended man and woman to…
Probably, many aren’t aware how potent
this energy – this force - can be
when it is transmuted into the work they do…
True, if you learn to transmute this mighty force into your work, you will see the birth of a genius!
In the early 80’s, as a stranger and a struggling young-man in this big city of Mumbai (then Bombay), I was filled with self-doubts and fears. My self-confidence level was at its lowest pit, and I was gripped with anxiety about my future. It was during these harrowing times, I had found on the roadside an old copy of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s inspirational classic – ‘Think & Grow Rich’…
My life was destined to change, immediately!
I have been so influenced by Dr. Napoleon Hill’s ‘Success philosophy’ - particularly his famous line: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” - that it would be impossible for me to shed off this influence all my life.
So, as a young-teacher in his twenties, when I had scribbled those passages in the little booklet ‘THE DAWN’, they loudly – and proudly - echoed the core tenets of Dr. Hill’s life-lessons. What he had assimilated from the lives of scores of successful people and passed on to us, I was now trying to do, in my own way, to my students…
With my deepest humility and reverence, I dedicate this book ‘THE ECHOES OF THE DAWN’ - to the one who made me ‘Stand up’ in life…Dr. Napoleon Hill.
