Introduction to Energy Transformation
Imagine that you haven’t slept for two or three days. You are dead tired so you come home early to sleep for at least 10 hours. However, the moment you lie down, you see your house catching fire! What would your reaction be? Well, obviously you would run as fast as you can and do everything possible to save your belongings. Even if the fire settled down, you wouldn’t be able to sleep that night.
Now, my question is, do you realize where all this energy came from, in spite of the fact that you were so tired? When you saw fire, you never thought twice about needing your sleep!
The reality is that we all have this enormous amount of energy in us. However, what makes one person more capable than another is the way that energy is transformed. Another good example of energy transformation is seen in the case of a physically weak person who might not be able to do any work that involves some muscle power. But once they get angry, they can do just about anything – even beat up another person badly. You can see that within yourself too. When you are very angry, you get so energetic that you feel like you could face anyone. Unfortunately, this energy comes out in the form of anger.
My goal is to help you understand the phenomenon of energy transformation. This is a very broad topic and I can only begin to introduce the idea here. The idea is that every type of negative energy can be transformed into positive energy and vice versa. People must decide for themselves how this transformation can be made. It requires strong willpower along with self-discipline and a desire to change. For instance, when you feel angry, try to clench your fist as tight as you can and then slowly release. You will feel instantaneous relief. Similarly, you can work out or take the anger out in another non-violent form.
Slowly, you will find that you have control over your anger. Napoleon Hill’s bestselling book Think and Grow Rich has one interesting chapter called “The Mystery of Sex Transmutation” which argues that energy behind all great achievements is sexual. It deals with the relationship between achievement and the highly developed sexual nature. It might be hard to believe, but it’s tremendously useful once you understand the science of it.
Try and pay attention to the various ways you use up your energies throughout the day. Then transform the energies you felt might have been wasted to something more powerful and worthy. You will realize that a powerhouse of energy has been within yourself all along.
