Transmutation - Intrigue and Mystery Dec 29, 2006
I want to focus my impressions on the excellent and suspenseful book, Transmutation by Lydia Bisanti. Transmutation is edgy and clearly written. The primary voice of the story is Rene Eagle and it has urgency and drive.
It is, in part, the story of a powerful and successful international businessman with an obsession with power.. He rapes, pillages and plunders because he CAN - with no thought to the consequences. Rene's relationshsip to women especially his wife, are disturbing. He is at once seductive and destructive, He acts as if there will be no outcome to his actions. That is until he is contacted by the mysterious Lucia Albedo and her dream letter.
I loved the international travel, and meetings with power brokers- exotic and beautiful locations. The women in Transmutations felt like different aspects of The Goddess that Rene needed to contact for his evolution.. His first encounter with Lucia, his twin flame, is awesome. Her mystery is what draws Rene deeper and deeper into a union with Universal awareness and himelf. Renes' initial response to Lucia's letter was that she was "crazy". This is so typical of many people's response to mediumship and psychic phenomena.
Ms. Bisanti is skilled at creating and sustaining fascinating and believable characters. I also loved Angela Swann, the harbinger for Lucia.
Rene's first out of body experience with Lucia is amazing. You can really feel and imagine what it was like for him and how deeply he was affected by it. My favorite parts of the story are where Rene's healing and psychic gifts are awakened, and he is reconnected to Source. His spiritual travels with The Master were also vivid and compelling. The mood and emotion of this book are involving and deep. There is a good balance between the world as most people experience it and the mystery of the Universe that is within us and around us.
I highly recommend Transmutations to those who enjoy a thriller and to those who are also exploring metaphysical ideas.
A good spiritual story Jan 23, 2006
Transmutation is about transformation of the individual man to a Universal Man. The hero of the novel, Rene Eagle goes through a series of personal catastrophes (as seen through normal eyes) which push him over the precipice and help his ego to refine/ dissolve/ sublime.
Transmutation is used in alchemy and in nuclear science. It means changing one element (a base metal like lead or iron) into another noble element (like gold). The Philosopher's Stone is a 'mythical' object which is supposed to help the alchemist to transmute a base metal like iron and lead to gold.
Philosophically, it is the transmutation of an egoistic soul (which because of its limited vision is naturally selfish) into an Universal Soul (a soul which becomes the whole universe and thus has no scope for being selfish). The purpose of each soul is to transmute itself into the Universal Soul. To achieve that, the ego has to achieve a sacred union with that missing complement soul, to which it is compellingly drawn. Till then, shadows of such soul (egos that have some semblance to that real mate) will attract the individual, resulting in infatuations, addictions etc. The objectives of various prayers, meditations and other rituals is to prepare the individual ego for this sacred union, which is the real fulfilling union. Eternal Love is the natural result of such an union. Till then, the ego goes through several planes of existence.
The author succeeds in bringing out these concepts well, which are not really new to eastern minds. The story is well told and grips the reader through out. Rene becomes Siva, the three-eyed God (the third eye representing true knowledge and wisdom), though the author doesn't use that specific name.
The book could have been edited better, but fortunately the communication comes through. I strongly recommend this slim volume if you have any leanings towards spiritual matters. Even without the spirit, the novel is a good read.
