The word “transmute” simply means “the changing or transferring of one element or form of energy into another according to Napoleon Hill”. The emotion of sex can be used constructively for the perpetuation of mankind, maintenance of health and transformation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation.
Sex transmutation is easily explained as the process of harnessing and directing the desire for sexual contact into creative lines; into one’s profession or calling and also the art of accumulating riches. Sex transmutation calls for the exercise of will power. This desire for sex expression is inborn and natural. It can neither be submerged nor eliminated but must have an outlet through forms of expression that enrich the body, mind and soul of man.
The emotion of sex may be submerged and be under control for sometime but if not transmuted into some creative effort it will find a less worthy outlet. Man who have accumulated great fortunes and achieved outstanding recognition in art, literature, economy and war where motivated by the influence of a woman.
Wherever there was evidence available in connection with the lines of men and women of great achievement, it indicates most convincingly that they possess high developed sex natures. When driven by emotion of sex, man becomes gifted with a super power for action. Sigmund Feud once said that everything you and I did spring from two motives; the sex urge and the desire to be great.
The human mind responds to stimuli through which it may be connected to creative imagination. The mind responds freely to my desire for sex expression and when this sex expression is directed towards creative imagination, the sky is just the beginning.
A man who has narrated the art of sex transmutation and can increase the intensity of thought to the point where he can freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary rate of thought is a genius. From the bio graphics of certain men, we deduced that sex transmutation is a sole key to the genius which was theirs.
Thomas Jefferson; George Washington, Elbert Hubard; Napoleon Bonaparte, William Shakespeare; Abraham Lincoln. There are so many of them and you can even add to this list those that are still living that you know.
Sex energy is the creative energy of all geniuses. The energy must be transmuted by stimulating the mind so that it can draw on available forces, through creative faculty of the imagination. Though many people lower themselves and misuse this great force to the status of lower animals.
Sex emotion must also be mixed with love to provide calmness of purpose, accuracy of judgment and balance when a man is driven by the emotion of sex alone, he is usually capable of great achievements but he may lack balance, his action may be disorganized and totally destructive. When driven by this desire he may steal, cheat or commit murder just to please a women.
Love is spiritual; sex is biological and no experience which touches the human heart with a spiritual force can be harmful except though ignorance and jealousy.
