Jung

 
  HELLO! Before I begin, I would like to introduce my colleagues and explain how we came to be here. As with most of my life, it was by accident, curiosity, and choices that we are here now. You may be asking yourself, “What colleagues? I don’t see any colleagues.” That sounds like, “Badges, we don’t need no stinking badges.” That’s from the “Treasure of Sierra Madre.” I had Bogart’s role of Fred C. Dobbs. Oops! There I go drifting off again. I do that frequently.As Dr. Einstein said, I will be talking about my colleagues, and possibly to them. They are here because they want to know how accurate are my concepts of them. Wouldn’t you if somebody was going to talk about you in public? I know I would. After the talk, there will be a question and answer session. So, if you have any questions, please save them till we start that session. My first statement is one that I am very sure of, and that is: “I only have my many experiences to talk about as truths.” I am still reading about my colleagues, and the subjects they studied and spoke about. I have read more of Edgar Cayce’s books than I have read of the other two colleagues. Edgar Cayce was a great influence on my life. Carl Jung and Dr. Einstein also gave me great inspiration. I will refrain, as much as possible, from giving you statistics or information that you can find online. As Dr. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” He also said, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school” You can look up all of his quotes online, so I will, also, try to refrain from repeating his quotes. Well, maybe a few of them; like, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” I call them colleagues because I feel an affinity towards them. I have been reading about them since the early fifties when I was at the University of Miami. There are many books written about them, and some written by them. This is all information anyone can access. So, as Dr. Einstein says, “Information is not knowledge. The only source of Knowledge is experience.” I have had many varied experiences in my lifetime. I will not burden you with too much information, but only information pertaining to what I see as differences between the four of us regarding sex and religion. Because I am placing myself amongst these men of many talents and great intellect, does not mean that I am comparing, or placing myself at their level of intelligence. I am only adding some of my life experiences to some of the thoughts of these brilliant men. Thoughts related to sex and religion. As I said before, there will be a question and answer session when we finish our talk. Since starting this project, I have created my first quote. I am not competing with Dr. Einstein, but joining him. I believe everything that has been said, has been said many times, in many different ways. So, I am saying this in my way, knowing it has been said before. “If you only acknowledge the positives, and don’t recognize the opposites – The opposites should cease to exist.”  I felt good about that statement, until I went to a book signing at the Bloomsbury books store in Ashland. The author spoke about her book and read sections to the audience. She wrote and spoke about problems with marital relationships between spouses, who were victims of war. It was then that I realized that negative problems like that cannot be kicked under the rug. They must be brought out into the open and then healed. * Since I was born in September, and on Friday the 13th, also known as Black Friday, I don’t have any superstitions. Being born on that date helped me from becoming one of the sheep that looked on Friday the 13th as a day to avoid. As a mater of fact, the Folies Bergère, where nudity was popular, was named on Friday, September 13, 1872. It is still in business today, and is always a strong symbol of French and Parisian life. I would like to add, it is also a strong symbol of nudity.   Friday the 13th is only considered an unlucky day in Western superstition. While there is evidence of both Friday, and the number 13 being considered unlucky, there is no record of the two items, Friday, and the 13th, as being especially unlucky, that is, before the 19th century - Another myth we adopted. I tell you this because it relates to my feelings about religion, and subliminal programming.   From what I have read about my colleagues, they all recognized their sexual drive, although from reading their words, I can tell that they were deeply influenced by the bible, and society’s “That is not proper” attitude. I was fortunate, because I had no sexual hindrances from religion. I knew that some people looked at it differently than I did, but that didn’t get in my way. I never felt that I was going to end up in some terribly hot place when I died. For me sex was a natural thing. A thing that I felt and acted on. If I had a second chance, I wouldn’t change a thing. It was a pleasure that was hard to beat. And, I definitely do not carry any guilt. Why? Because I was not programmed by “The Book.”   Before I begin talking about sex and religion, I would like to talk about my colleagues. I am sure that most of you are very aware of my colleagues, but there is always something that has slipped by most of us. The things I will talk about are the items I liked most in all three. They were entirely different men, but had many things in common. That is what is bringing us together now. When you stop to think about it, why are you here now? I know I can’t answer that question.   I want to explain why I have chosen them. Why I feel these three men are so important to my own thoughts and beliefs. My personal feelings, from what they personally wrote, are that these three men were honest men, who cared for others in a way that seems to be lost in this day and age. Lost, but not forgotten. Not forgotten by the many people who hold on to the positive side of their lives, and don’t enhance, or acknowledge, the negative sides. I don’t mean to say they are closed minded, as many people are today, but that they have open minds, welcoming new input, but filtering out, any and all, input that may be negative or harmful to mankind. Or, better yet, acting on it, in order to change it and make this a better world.   When I say these things about the positive people, I am not including religion in this equation, because there are too many religions, and too many opinions about religion. My only relationship with religion, and with this story, is related to the influence religion has on sex. These are facts that many of us are unaware of, because they are deeply seated in our unconsciousness, and we act on them as though they are laws set down by the government.   And now back to my colleagues, who, I feel certain, were under the subliminal influences of the bible in their own way. Carl Jung was born in Switzerland, Edgar Cayce was born in the southeastern area of the United States, and Dr. Albert Einstein was born in Germany. I was born in the northeastern area of the United States. Different cultures, but all based on a form of the bible. After reading about these three men and their thoughts and memories, I came to realize the influence of the bible on the minds of those who have been exposed to its programming – It really is implanted deep in the subconscious mind.   I will start with CARL GUSTAV JUNG, who was often referred to as C. G. Jung, he was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in philosophy, anthropology, archaeol-ogy, literature, and religious studies. He was a prolific writer, though many of his works were not published until after his death. He has also been described as a philanderer - a man who readily or frequently enters into casual sexual relationships with women; a womanizer. Definitions brought about through the “book.” In 1903, Jung married Emma Rauschenbach, who was from Switzerland. They had five children. The marriage lasted until Emma's death in 1955. During his marriage, Jung engaged in extramarital relationships. Some of his affairs were widely known. His affairs with Sabina Spielrein and Toni Wolf were among them. Toni Wolfe was accepted by his wife, Emma, into a ménage à trois. However, the arrangement has been claimed by some “interpreters” to have been destructive to the self-esteem of both women. To those interpreters, I say, “Only if religion creeps into the picture. For thousands of years before “the book” and before the word ‘marriage’ was conceived, people shared one another.” The ancient Egyptians only wore clothing when it was cold, or for ornamentation; otherwise they were naked. They hadn’t been programmed about nudity and sex. No snakes were tempting them with apples.  In 1913, at the age of thirty-eight, Jung experienced a horrible "confrontation with the unconscious". He saw visions and heard voices. He worried at times that he was "menaced by a psychosis" or was "doing a schizophrenia". He decided that it was valuable experience, and in private, he induced hallucinations, or in his words, “active imaginations". He recorded everything he felt in small journals. Jung began to transcribe his notes into a large red leather-bound book, on which he worked intermittently for sixteen years. Jung left no posthumous instructions about the final disposition of what he called the Red Book. His family eventually moved it into a bank vault in 1984. Then, Jung's grandson, decided to publish the Red Book. It was published in German, with an English translation, on October 7, 2009. One of those, religious programmed, reviewers wrote, "The book is bombastic, baroque, and like so much else about Carl Jung, a willful oddity, synched with any ancient and murky period in history. I say, “Whoever those reviewers were, they were definitely programmed by “The Book.” * In his book MEMORIES, DREAMS, REFLECTIONS he tells of some of his childhood experiences. Reading these stories is how I became interested in Carl Jung. His stories, and how they came about, and what he thought at the time, are very interesting stories, and some are also humorous. I recommend that book. In that book there is an article by Carl Jung about Richard Wilhelm on the translation of the I Ching that more or less, demonstrates part of my theory about subliminal influences in sex and religion. It was also a strong influence on his health. I say, this same conflict arises when we receive signals from our bodies and it goes against the religious beliefs. To do or not to do, that is the question. Whether it is nobler of the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortunes, or to take arms against a sea of troubles. Or, whether it is nobler of the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous religion, or whether it is nobler of the mind to suffer the pleasures of sex. I do recommend reading Carl Jung’s book, MEMORIES, DREAMS, REFLECTIONS. And now to my next colleague, EDGAR CAYCE, who was known as the Sleeping Prophet. He would put himself in a trance-like state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. In this state, he was able to place his mind in contact with all time and space—the universal consciousness, also known as the super-conscious mind. From there, he could respond to a variety of questions from individuals across the country. A conductor of the readings, usually his wife Gertrude, asked the questions. His secretary, Gladys Davis, documented each session. According to the readings of Cayce, both women had been connected to Edgar Cayce in one or more past lives. These responses came to be called "readings," and their insights offer practical help and advice to individuals, even today. Reading his books had a great influence on my life. The majority of Edgar Cayce's readings deal with holistic health and the treatment of illness. Just as it was at the time when Cayce was giving readings, today, individuals from all walks of life and beliefs, receive physical relief from illnesses or ailments through information given in Cayce’s readings. Some of his readings were given almost a 100 years ago! They still heal people today. He could enter the body of anyone, anywhere, and diagnose, not only the symptoms, but also the cause of the symptoms. Most doctors’ work is based on the symptoms, but in most cases not the cause. The entire set of 14,306 readings includes a vast array of subject matter that can be narrowed down into the following categories: Dreams and dream interpretation - ESP and psychic phenomena - Health-related information – oneness - Philosophy and reincarnation - and Spiritual growth, meditation, and prayer. Edgar Cayce read the bible once every year. One of the many things that interested me about Edgar Cayce was his readings about Atlantis and the Sphinx. Edgar Cayce foretold the discovery of the land from Atlantis. He revealed that new land would appear in 1968 or 1969 off the east coast of North America, the so-called "rising of Atlantis". It was in that timeframe that the Bimini Road was discovered in the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Bimini, in the Bahamas. Whether this is actually a road or a natural, geologic erosion is still being debated. Many people believe this to be the actual portion of Atlantis that Cayce was referring to. In the late 40s and early 50s, I sailed to Bimini often, but I did not know about Atlantis then. If Atlantis is off of the coast of Bimini, then I crossed it a few times. Cayce maintained that Atlantis was an ancient civilization that was techno-logically superior to even our own, and that its last surviving islands have disappeared somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean some ten thousand years ago. Cayce revealed that the size of Atlantis was equal to that of Europe, including Asia. He saw visions of this continent of the past, which had gone through three major periods of division; the first two occurred around 15,600 B.C., when the mainland was divided into islands. The three main islands of Atlantis Cayce named, were Poseida, Og and Aryan. He said the people of Atlantis had constructed giant laser-like crystals for power plants, and that these were responsible for the second destruction of the land. Cayce blamed the final destruction of Atlantis and the disintegration of their culture on greed and lust. To add lust as part of the reason for its destruction is something that is coming from the bible, or what was imbedded in Edgar Cayce. Did Atlantis have a bible? I am sure that there are people out there who will jump on That last part. Maybe if they had a bible they could have been saved? But before the legendary land disappeared under the waves, Cayce revealed that there was an exodus of many Atlanteans to ancient Egypt. Cayce attributed the Biblical Great Flood of Noah to be a result of the sinking of the last huge remnants of Atlantis; again, something from the bible. During Cayce's otherworldly journeys, Cayce would often reveal the past lives of those who would come to him for information concerning their health. A number of people, who came to Cayce, were told by him, that they had past lives in the legendary lost land of Atlantis. In fact, Cayce revealed that a vast number of souls, who lived past lives in Atlantis, have been incarnating to America for a long time now. They come to usher in a new era of enlightened human conscious-ness. In all, Cayce referred to Atlantis no fewer than seven hundred times over a span of twenty years. As I said before, I have read most of the many books about, or written by, Edgar Cayce. It was a great influence on my life in many ways. However the religious portion never entered into the picture. I did know that he read the Bible once a year, but I didn’t realize how seriously religious he was, until I started reading a book A SEER OUT OF SEASON that was written in 1989 by Dr. Harmon Hartzell Bro. I had it in my collection, but had failed to read it, until recently. I could tell by the writing that the author was also deeply into religion, however many of the things he said about Edgar Cayce were new to me. I belong to the Association for Research and Enlightenment (the ARE Foundation).  It is located in Virginia Beach, VA. There is much to know about the ARE Foundation – you may want to check it out. I was in Virginia Beach before I knew about Edgar Cayce, and I was in Bimini before I knew about Atlantis. I have never been to Switzerland or Germany, so it looks like I still have some traveling to do. You can find most of Edgar Cayce’s books online, or at the ARE foundation. And now I am going to talk about DR. ALBERT EINSTEIN. I am sure you all know a lot about him, so I won’t relate a lot of information about him that you can find in books or online. At the age of twelve, Albert Einstein stopped being influenced by religion. But actually because of his early programming, he was still influenced through his unconscious self. There are many examples of what I am saying. Dr. Albert Einstein supposedly said this, "Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books, I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude, which has never left me." Dr. Einstein actually wrote prolifically on matters of religion and politics, but his writings on these matters are little known by the public, because they were in opposition to mainstream views. This was especially true after World War II, when Dr. Einstein was heavily censored. Here is one of his quotes, that I feel, fit the censors: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” If you feel I am calling the censors stupid. You are right; I am!   I feel that much of that religious programming never left him. One reason is about his later feelings about the word infidelity. A word that helped put fear into the hearts of humans. What is infidelity? Infidelity is breaking a promise to remain faithful to a sexual partner. That promise can take many forms, from marriage vows sanctified by the state, to privately uttered verbal agreements between lovers. As unthinkable as the notion of breaking such bonds may be, infidelity is common. And when it does happen, it raises thorny and painful questions. Should you stay? Can trust be rebuilt? Can you, and should you, forgive and move on? Without “the book” we wouldn’t have to make those decisions. Who first introduced the word “Infidelity?” Whose idea was it that marriage was necessary for couples living together? When did we decide we needed marriage licenses, in order to prove marriage? How did we manage before all of those ingenious requirements? Two humans, living on an island, who didn’t know about all of those rules, came together. Did they feel guilt afterwards? I doubt it. They hadn’t been programmed yet. They didn’t even know the word “gender.” Think about it! Recently, I read a question to one of those advice writers, that is an excellent example: Dear Madam X: After almost fifty years of marriage, I discovered recently that he had several one night stands for 10 to 15 years of our marriage. I always thought I was intuitive and aware, but I truly had no idea. I have pressed him for an answer as to why he did such a horrible thing. (I ask you; what is horrible about a little sex?) She continues: I am seeing a counselor; he refuses to go. He says that it was at the beginning of our marriage, it has been many years since he indulged himself. We are aging, and we don’t have time to rebuild a life with someone else. Do I run? Or do I try to leave this in the past and stay? If I were younger, I would have left, but our age and finances cause me to consider the practical side of this. Part of the reply to this question says that there is no single, or right way, to respond to infidelity. The answer showed me that this advice, writer, was also programmed by “the book”.” Before “the book,” in the beginning, there were not all of those labels put on to sexuality. It was a natural thing. What did we allow those “holier than thou’ men do to us? Here is one of Dr. Einstein’s sayings. I don’t know how accurate it is, because editing some times changes the meaning of a sentence. It is regarding what I am talking about in relation to sex and religions. It may not all be accurate, but here it is: “If one purges the Judaism of the Prophets, and Christianity as Jesus taught it, of all subsequent additions, especially those of the priests, one is left with a teaching, which is capable of curing all the social ills of humanity.”    – As I see this, Dr. Einstein is saying that the prophets and the priests added their input into the words of Jesus. If we purged all of those words, added by other people, we are left with the true teachings of Jesus; the teachings that would be capable of curing all of the social ills of humanity. I have always felt that if Jesus were to hear his words from the bible; to most of them he would say, “I didn’t say that!” I believe this is one of Dr. Einstein’s quotes, “It is the duty of every man of good will, to strive steadfastly in his own little world, to make this teaching of pure humanity a living force, so far as he can. If he makes an honest attempt in this direction, without being crushed and trampled under foot by his contemporaries, he may consider himself, and the community, to which he belongs; lucky.” Dr. Albert Einstein has been revealed as a charismatic flirt and philanderer who liked to describe his extramarital affairs to his second wife and his stepdaughter.   Barbara Wolff, an archivist at Hebrew University, suggests that Einstein's behavior may reflect the adage that our greatest strengths are also, often, our greatest weaknesses. "The fact that he didn't try to hide his mistresses has to do with his need to be frank and open," she says.   She says! Who, is influenced by “the book” now? Barbara Wolfe, says, “The fact that he didn’t try too hide his mistresses, has to do with his need to be frank and open.” Why would he have such a need? I believe the book was an influence on him, but I also believe It wasn’t a big deal to him. I say his greatest strength was the fact that he listened to his bodily needs, rather than being inhibited by “the book.” AND, I don’t see no stinking weaknesses.   Elsa Einstein's main concern was to take care of her famous husband. She undoubtedly knew about, and yet tolerated, Einstein's love affairs which were later revealed in his letters   In one of his correspondence to Elsa, he (Dr. Einstein) writes about Mrs M, who accompanied him on his trip abroad. "Mrs M definitely acted according to the best Christian-Jewish ethics: #1) One should do what one enjoys and what won't harm anyone else; and #2) one should refrain from doing things one does not take delight in, and which annoy another person. Because of #1) she came with me, and because of #2) she didn't tell you a word. Isn't that irreproachable?" he writes. “I was fortunate.”   In July of 2006 some hidden letters, written by Dr. Einstein were revealed. Revealed? Were they really hidden, or just in a pile of papers? (I get so tired of people making statements they cannot prove). In the letters, Dr. Einstein identifies six different mistresses by initials and first names, including his own secretary.   All of the above comes from being programmed. Programmed that having sex is a sin, unless you are married. Why did the priests put that into the bible? What did they care? Were they jealous because  they were supposed to be celibate? Why? The only answer I can come up with is, more control, and more fear. SUMMATION: To sum it all up. Here are three geniuses, who in their own way, were strongly influenced by “the book.” They had early bible input, and thus, were unconsciously programmed by “the book.” From what I have seen, and heard in my life, I feel “the book” blocks the way to enlightenment, and to the path for our journey on this planet, and to our next life. Fortunately, I don’t have that block. I say fortunately, because I have lived a very fruitful life - I carry no guilt, nor do I have fears about where I go after I leave this life. It will just be another step along the way - to - I don’t know where, and probably won’t know when I get there. What is all the fuss about? If you love yourself, and love all others, and you are caring to this planet, and all on it, what can go wrong? Where does sin fit in? This story was written after reading about Dr. Albert Einstein and his sexual drive. And then, reading about Edgar Cayce and his concern about an earlier time in Egypt, in a past life, when he was very sexually active. My sexual drive was similar to Dr. Einstein’s and Carl Jung’s, but I believe a little more vigorous. Having not been around them, it is difficult to compare. It started me thinking about my sexual drive in my early days, and how the bible influenced my colleagues in different ways.   As I said before, I am free from the influences of “the book.” I agree with many things in “the book.” I do not agree with many more; like ones related to how we should, and shouldn’t, live and feel, and what is proper. All based on suggestions of “the book’s” editors.   To me, God is energy at the center of the Universe. I do not believe we are designed in God’s image. If we were, we would look like molecules made up of atoms, from protons and neutrons. God has no gender; we have no idea of how God appears; we are humans. I use the word human to include both genders although some may not agree. Men think women are not human, and women think men are not human. They may be both right.   As I said before, I wrote that after reading about Dr. Albert Einstein’s sexual activities, and then, reading about Edgar Cayce, who was upset about being so sexually active in a past life.   While reading Cayce’s Egyptian Legacy, from a book written by Harmon Hartzell Bro, he said that in one of Edgar Cayce’s readings he referred to Atlantis. Cayce was surprised when he awakened and was told he had mentioned Atlantis. He knew nothing of Atlantis, or of Plato’s theory, at the time. It peaked his curiosity, so he researched it, with some startling discoveries. He discovered, that at one time, in one of his past lives, he lived in Egypt around 10,500 BC. He was known as Ra Ta, who was responsible for creating two temples in Giza near the Great Sphinx. He was also known to be very sexually active. That disturbed Edgar Cayce. I am aware, that at times, I am repeating myself. Please bear with me; it is for a purpose.   Undt now on to me - SAM’S SEXUAL EXPERIENCES: This will not be told chronologically. I will jump around a lot in time, because thoughts of our past sometimes escape us, and then all of sudden, pop up. Of that, I am very sure.   I doubt that any of those three men could match my sexual experiences; in numbers, methods, or practices. I, certainly, respect those three men, and I am not in any way trying to compete with their brilliant minds. I just feel, in the area of sexuality, I have a small advantage (well, not too small.). You be the judge, after I tell some of my many sexual experiences. The truth is, in most cases, partners in a sexual experience are there to satisfy themselves. However, a good caring partner will also make sure that the other partner is also satisfied. To my knowledge, I feel that I fulfilled that action. I know I satisfied many, because we remained friends, and continued our sexual activities for some time. However there were times, when I had to take time out, in order to rest from all of the sexual pleasures. As I grew older I started cutting down. At 86 I only have sex once a week (well maybe twice). If you believe that, would you be interested in buying the Brooklyn Bridge? – I can find a good deal: only $1.999.99? Ah, yes! Those were the days. I got parts of this comment from Benjamin Franklin, and parts from other quotes from different people. Then I created my own comment: “Think how great a proportion of mankind, consists of weak and ignorant men and women, and of inexperienced youth, of both sexes, who have need of the motives of religion to restrain them from vice and sin.” I know, I said some of this before. I believe it is worth repeating. They have to support their virtue, and refrain themselves from sexual enjoyment, because of the fear instilled in them. Fear that they will end up in some hot, terrible after life torture. Those people, controlled by “the book” are suffering from the start.   When the very first humans on this planet began living, and then later, meeting other humans, it must have been a wonderful place. That was before we had people to tell us how to live, or what was right or wrong. An orgasm was an orgasm. Something to be enjoyed, and it didn’t matter who, how or when you had it. One of the first humans on this planet meets another human for the first time; gender was not important (what did they know about gender?). If they were able to share their feelings and enjoy each other, what difference would it make to either of them? Then, if a third human appeared, why not share each other. Since they were already open minded, it wouldn’t make any difference.   How did we lose control of our lives? Easy! We listened to control freaks. These control freaks took other people’s words, and then, twisted them around so that people lived in fear, instead of freedom and happiness. Then they re-edited “the book” so that it fulfilled their needs.   Many priests may have truly wanted to help humanity, but because of the power of the top people, and because of the programming, they became sheep, and followed the leader. They went out to spread the word of God. They were programmed believers. They spread fear and took away freedom. They never thought that God didn’t write “the book”. They meant well, but destroyed other cultures, and many people; such as the natives of the South Seas, who didn’t have any need of clothing, or marriage licenses, until these men of the cloth came along and “corrected them. They did this to the Native Americans, who had Nature as their guide, or just any of the other cultures that fell into their gift of proselytization.   THINK ABOUT YOUR PROGRAMMING! You may get answers to some of your unfounded feelings.   Here are some words and labels to make you feel guilty of sex, or thoughts of sex: Libertine, wastrel, self-indulgence, roué, debauchee, lecher, sensualist, amoral, sensual, lascivious, lewd, and let us not forget my favorite word, “lustful.”   I would like to ask you a question. If, all of the negative labels related to sex, were in a column; like a column of numbers, to be totaled. What word would you use as the “total” word? For me, the answer is easy. THINK A MINUTE FOR AN ANSWER. Ask for answers.   First I would like to say, “I am glad to be lustful” – that means I am normal. Yes, NORMAL is the word that sums up all of those other labels. How did we manage to get by before these words existed, and where did these words come from?   In some cultures, sexual activity is considered acceptable, only within marriage. Some sexual activities are actually illegal, while some are considered contrary to the norms of a society. What society? I don’t see no stinking society. It seems to me that if a person has sexual desires, we are normal. When we have urges to go to the bathroom, we go. What is the difference? They are both, honest desires, or urges.   There are many words that depict people interested in sexual activity, and in the word sex itself. These words are guilt-ridden by means of “the book”. If we had none of the negative labels connected with sex, we might all enjoy a better life.   I was lucky - my sexual life, was not hindered by any book, and I had more than my share of sex. It was one of the activities I enjoyed most in my early years.    -- I want you to know; I did not use these ladies. We shared our enjoyment of sex. Now at 86 I still love a sexy, pretty figure, and I can almost get an erection. Then, I was right on, now - I am a dirty old man.   An example of a dirty old man: I was sitting on the wall at the local co-op, eating a sandwich. There were many people walking by, and many were attractive ladies. I was enjoying my lunch, and the atmosphere of the caring and enjoyment, of the people walking by, meeting old friends, hugging, laughing and chatting. It was very refreshing.   One lady, who walked by, had a beautiful, full bosom. She was only wearing a thin T-shirt. It was a sight to behold. Then another lady left her group, to go out to the parking lot; she had to walk past me. She also, was full busted, and wearing a thin T-shirt, and a vest. She was fine, until she saw me. Then she quickly pulled her vest over her breasts, and gave me a dirty look. I wasn’t supposed to look at her breasts. How sad! What should I look at; a dog peeing on a bush? For all of you younger men - enjoy while you can, the day will come.   After reading those stories of Jung, Einstein, and Cayce’s, my mind went to my sexual drive in this life. I realized that Cayce’s concerns were based on being exposed to “the book”, and its “no, no” teachings.  We have so many hang-ups because of that “book”. Fortunately, I was introduced to sex before I was introduced to “the book”. Those fears and “no-no’s” were never in-bedded in my mind – I wasn’t programed about all of the things “the book” said I could, or could not, do. I did learn about nature, and that caring for others, and treating all as I would have treated myself, was a natural thing to do. But as for all of the rules set down by the priests and prophets, I was lucky to have missed them.   In my teens I went to Sunday school for a short time. I found it boring. I would much rather be hiking in the woods, than sitting, repeating things that sounded boring to me. So the more “important” things were never instilled in me. When my Dad taught me how to drive, he taught me “courtesy of the road,” which was an extension of the courtesy I had been taught at home. In my home there was very little talk about “the book” and it’s teachings. An act was either right or wrong. We were punished at the time, not promised to go to some terrible place when we died. A spanking then, was the end of it. This is how I began. We moved from the city of Vandergrift, where I started first grade, to a small community called Oklahoma. It was a small town outside of Vandergrift, not too far from my hometown. There were many children in this community, and that winter we had a lot of snow. We rode down the hill behind our house on sleds. That following summer we gathered together, playing kissing games and make-believe school classes. I first became aware of sex while living in Vandergrift before moving to Oklahoma. I found a “book” with photos, showing the various sexual positions. I looked at all of the pictures; I wasn’t able to read yet. My folks got rid of “the book”, but it was already in my mind. That first summer in Oklahoma, a girl my age, and I, tried to have sex. I will call her Mary. We found a spot in the bushes near my house, and we got into the position. I was too young for an erection; didn’t even know what one was. We finally gave up. A few days later while having dinner, my sister said something to me that stopped all eating, and a few forks were dropped. She said, “Sam, Mary told me she wants to meet you soon, and fuck again.” I remember trying to cover it by saying something about ducks. I wasn’t allowed out that night, or the next day. However, Mary and I did try one more time; out in the bushes behind her house. Her father came out, and chased me into the woods. It was a long time before I tried again. Much later, I learned how to do it in one of those houses in my hometown. I was playing semi-pro football when I became involved with a divorced lady, who taught me the whys and wherefores of sex. Oh did she train me. I owe most of my success to her. Later, I was drafted into the army. I was in New York at the time, working on an 83-foot power yacht out of Flushing Bay, New York. One of the ladies, I was dating at the time, flew to Pittsburgh to be with me, before leaving for the Army. My family was kind enough to allow us to stay together. While doing calisthenics during basic training, I broke a couple of bones in my foot. I was in the hospital for three months. I learned a lot about the army while I was there. Two MPs were hospitalized because of a motorcycle accident. They taught me about army regulations, so when I returned to duty, I was aware of many things they don’t teach you. What they do teach; is to hate the enemy, and to kill the enemy. Hating, helped one to kill another human. It did not get embedded into my mind, like it did some of the newer boys. Once I was able to walk, I would get passes, and go to Washington, D.C. for the weekend. At that time, one block on NW 17th street was filled with three story walkup apartments that were filled with ladies, who worked in the offices of the government. That is where I spent my time, along with other servicemen. I was honorably discharged in July of 1953. I went home to visit my family, and then in the fall, I returned to Miami. I entered the University of Miami on the GI Bill. I studied Psychology, which included hypnosis, and it’s virtues in helping people handle their problems.  As I said before, and may repeat again, both Jung and Dr. Einstein were subjects of discussions in class. At the time, I was also working in a large hotel on Miami Beach as a cabana boy, and a diving and swimming instructor. One day, a man requested swimming instructions. He told me he had tried many of the instructors on the beach, but he still could not swim. After talking with him, and then taking him into the shallow end of the pool, I realized that he had a great fear of the water. I told him I could remove that fear. So, he let me relax him, so that I could give him strong suggestions to remove the fear. Once under, I re-programmed him. After that session, it took only three sessions before he was diving off of the deep end and swimming the length of the pool. That experience convinced me that hypnosis worked, and that it was a wonderful tool. I used it many times after that. It was so simple, that I never thought of it as a business. I did not feel right about charging anyone, who could do this for themselves. I now teach it. It is called self-hypnosis. While working on the beach, I met many people in the entertainment business. Since I was already an acrobat, I joined a water show and we worked most of the large hotels on Miami Beach. One day, I met a man who performed in the hotels doing a hypnotic act. We became friends, and later, I became his assistant. It was a great experience. Because of the water shows and my acrobatic diving, I also met many pretty ladies. I will tell you more about that time a little later. That brings me back to sex - sex does not have to have “love” to be complete. I never told a lady that I loved her, in order to go to bed with her. I presented myself as a “goodtime Charlie,” so that the ladies would know not to expect any type of commitments, or proposals. However, during those moments of pleasure, it was important for me to make my partner feel like she was the most important lady on the planet. Prior to that, I never told a lady that I was in love with her, in order to get in bed with her. I couldn’t do that to a person I was about to share joy with.   If I started getting romantically attached to a girl, I would quit dating her. Why? First, because I respected her, second, because I believed that I had too many places to go, as a single guy, and therefore, I shouldn’t get attached to anyone. I developed that trait while still in high school. My sister, who was two grades below me, once told me; in a very angry voice, “The girls are all saying that you only go out with them for one thing.” I replied, “That is good information. Now, when I ask a girl out, and she goes with me, it means we are going for only one thing. I like that.” My Sister stormed out of the house.   I looked at sex as a sharing of a good time. Most of the ladies I met were only looking for a good time. There were so many that came down to Miami Beach for a week’s vacation, that I had much more than my share. If you multiply the years I lived on Miami Beach, by the weeks, you would get an idea of how many ladies shared a bed with me. This is not counting the local ladies I knew. I sent many a lady home with good times on her mind. I never felt guilty about having sex. Maybe that is why I am still alive today. I knew most of the hotel cabana managers because of the water shows. I was always welcome to come to their pools and work out on the diving boards. While I was diving, I was also checking out the pretty ladies, sunning by the poolside. When I spotted a very attractive lady near the pool’s edge, I would complete a dive into the pool, and then push myself off of the bottom so that I came up close to the lady. I would come out of the water, smile at her and say, “Hello. Where are you from?” From there it was into simple conversation, and eventually, into bed. These ladies were usually there for a week or two, so they didn’t have time to wait for all of the usual romancing before climbing into bed. They dispensed themselves of that, and usually one or two dates was enough to complete the trip to the bed. I never asked them about their life, related to marriage or other relationships. That was of no importance at that time. Many told me later that they were married, or engaged, but by then, we were enjoying each other, which was all that mattered for the moment. I met many local ladies as well. Some were housewives, others were call girls, or had a “John.” (that was the title of those men that took care of them.) I, also, knew many strippers; there were many strip clubs in Miami and on Miami Beach. On Miami Beach I rented a hotel room to do my photography processing. It also had a strip club. Since I was in the hotels and the nightclubs much of my time, I got to know the dancers, musicians, comedians, and the strippers who worked those places. Any large hotel on the beach had a nightclub in it. I was in a nightclub one night with some of my water-show buddies, having some drinks, doing a little flirting, and chatting. The Emcee, who knew us, came over to our table and asked if one of us would get up for his talent show. Seems he didn’t have enough contestants. They said, “Sam will do it.” So I did. After the show a man came up to me, and asked me some questions about the act I had just done. I told him that I just made that up, that I didn’t have an act. Turns out he was an agent, and he signed me with his agency. I started doing stand-up comedy in the smaller hotels in South Beach. This was before South Beach became so famous. I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SOUTH BEACH BECOMING FAMOUS. Because of my photography concessions, liking jazz, and doing water shows at the hotel swimming pools, I had many friends on the Beach. I knew, and dated, the dancers and singers, along with the lovely tourists who came down for a little fun and relaxation. I lived in Florida, off and on, for over eleven years: It was a wonderful time in my life. I have many stories about the different ladies I met, and the ones I met going to, and from, New York. One time, while living In New York, and hanging out with the Jet Set of New York, I met the Grateful Dead. I have many stories to tell about my many times with the Dead; both in New York and in California. Some of them are on my web site. Because I moved around so much after leaving Florida in 1961, I kept in touch with the ladies in my life, mostly through letters. I never knew where I was going to pop up next, so I felt it was good to keep in touch. When email came into being, I created a web site, and I now have over 2,000 email addresses from my past girlfriends. They only email once or twice a year, so it is not like I am getting a ton of emails every day. If you believe that, I can still get you a deal on the Brooklyn Bridge. I am sorry - it just seemed, that a little humor was required here. Because of writing this show, I have had many revelations about myself, psychology, and other things. One of them has to do with the Sphinx, a great mystery of its own. I started writing the story of my theory, about the Sphinx in 2012. A theory written through dreams, and self-hypnosis, and I now feel that it is almost completed. I owe a lot of it to my research of my colleagues, while writing about them. It was suggested that I should publish my theory about the Sphinx, before someone grabs it, and claims it as theirs. Since it is not the size of a novel, I intended to include some of my fiction stories in order to have a complete book of short stories. A little fiction never hurt. Now that I have completed this one-man play, I realize it is also a story that should be part of my novel. It will follow my theory on the Sphinx, because at the end of my theory, I talk about the hidden records that Edgar Cayce mentions in his many readings. The theory starts with the construction of the Sphinx, and then progresses to the hidden records. This was all done in steps, and climaxed sometime in April of 2015. These are the last few paragraphs of my theory about the Sphinx and the pyramids: However, because of my other project about my one man play, “Jung, Cayce, Einstein, Me, Sex, and Religion” I have been dedicating all of my reading time to books related to those people. They had many things in common, and may have known of each other, but never met. I am very curious about that. I wonder if they may have met in this life, or in past lives. They all spoke of Atlantis, sex, and religion. Cayce’s readings were close to the words quoted by both Carl Jung and Dr. Albert Einstein. It is exciting being placed in the middle of such people, because I am just a common, ordinary man; not too bright, and my memory is terrible when it comes to statistics. Yes, I have had many life and close to death experiences, and I do honor and respect all three of my colleagues, (I call them colleagues because of my one-man play), but I do not have their intellect – if I did, it would be in my way. So, as an ordinary dude, I am following a path, which includes writing this story of my experience under self-hypnosis, relating to the Sphinx.I kept trying each night, and sometimes during the day, to return to that time, and get the answer to my question, “What was in the records?” I was also working on my one-man play. Then, one morning, as I was lying in bed with my thoughts, the answer came to me. The records were already out there for all to read. I had been reading the words of those records, and didn’t realize it. I was agreeing, but I was not aware that they were the words of the records. All three of my colleagues were saying what to do to save the world. They were trying to save the world in their own way, and now, I was joining them - in my own way. I have read most of Edgar Cayce’s comments about the hidden records from the ancient past, at a time when Atlantis existed. These records could possibly save the world if they fell into the right hands, or, destroy the world, if they fell into the hands of the greedy and the corrupt. That is why they were hidden. It is all there in their writings. So if you are interested in saving the world, or, if you just want to better yourself, as a start to bettering the world, then read about these three men and their various statements about world affairs: Carl Gustav Jung, Edgar Cayce, and Dr. Albert Einstein. They have given us the answers. Are we smart enough to see them? And, are we strong enough to make them work?Thank you very much for your patience. I would like to ask artist (Gene Burnett) to do one more song. And then we will have questions and answers. 

THE END
