The Biology of Belief – Unleashing the Power of Consciousness by Bruce H Lipton
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Cheryl_A._Chatfield,_Ph.D.]Cheryl A. Chatfield, Ph.D.
Dr. Lipton claims that our environment, which includes nutrition, emotion and stress, influences our cells. We know that DNA passes on hereditary traits, but he cites research from a new study, epigenetics, that shows gene modification from the environment is also passed on.
The author explains the implications of his new information. The world is energy. We can use positive thinking to change. Cells are influenced by their surroundings. If we are healthy and at ease, we can create a better world. That is the message of this book, a message backed by science.
I found much in Dr. Lipton’s work that relates to material in my Do It Yourself Guide to Spirituality: Seven Simple Steps. He stresses that cells reflect Step One – Everything is Connected, or “As above, so below,” showing that one cell mirrors all capabilities of the entire body.
Our cells are made up of proteins and other types of molecules. The protein molecules have a balanced electromagnetic charge. If the positive and negative charges are altered, the protein will adjust to the change. This is Step Six – We Balance and shows that even in a cell, there must be balance, showing not only Step Six but reinforcing Step One.
Dr. Lipton is an optimist who sees the repetitive pattern of life as an encouraging sign. He discusses fractal geometry, or the “repeating, ordered patterns” in nature and evolution. There is order to life. This is Step Four – We Move, showing that we move in repetitive designs.
There are important chapters on using alternative medicines and understanding our conscious and unconscious thoughts. Dr. Lipton’s book is an example of science opening the doors to spirituality.
