Book Review: The Biology of Belief, Unleashing the Power of Consciousness Matter & Miracles by Bruce Lipton
Dr. Bruce Lipton in “The Biology of Belief” states that “every material structure in the universe, including you and me, radiates a unique energy signature”. He has proposed methods for healing and has made the complex topic of biological organisms much easier.
Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene appearance or expression that is caused by something outside of changes in the underlying DNA sequence – Wikipedia.com
Epigenetics is a new field of biology that is been explored by Bruce. He unravels the obscure nature and behavior of cells under the influence of the environment. His view is that every individual cell functions as a universe, while the membrane saves the cell from foreign bodies and acts like the security guard who lets in the ‘beneficial’ and keeps out the ‘harmful’.
We know that the ‘cell’ is the structural and functional unit of all living things, plants and animals. Lipton illustrates to us that the cells possess some kind of intelligence and therefore the cell can be taught through thinking and experience. As a result people should act and react in a positive manner to the environment, thoughts, suggestions and to outside energy.
We have enormous influence on the intellectual composition and framework of this cellular structure. Our influence can be so large that the cell genetics can be changed. The genetic propensity can also be changed by teaching the individual cell what to do next and also by shifting our mental and physical environment so that each and every cell can know and comprehend the type of alterations they need to create.
I found the topic of discussion in the biology of belief outstanding, we have all heard or perhaps have friends that are never ill or do not suffer from colds and flu as most other people do. This book and other experiences in my life make me think that just maybe if we believe that we will be healthy and have a positive outlook on life then we will be healthier, interesting read.
