The Mystery of Sex Transmutation The Tenth Step toward Riches
1 The meaning of the word "transmute" is, in simple language, "the changing, or
2 transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another."
3 The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind. Because of ignorance on
4 the subject, this state of mind is generally associated with the physical, and
5 because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected, in
6 acquiring knowledge of sex, things essentially physical have highly biased the
7 mind.
8 The emotion of sex has back of it the possibility of three constructive
9 potentialities, they are:
10 1. The perpetuation of mankind.
11 2. The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agency, it has no equal).
12 3. The transformation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation.
13 Sex transmutation is simple and easily explained. It means the switching of the
14 mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some other nature.
15 Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire,
16 men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and
17 creative ability unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the
18 desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to
19 indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating
20 force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc.,
21 which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other
22 profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches.
