The Biology of Belief

Dr Lipton explains how our environment, relationships, and belief system can actually change us on a biological level.

Here are a few interesting points made in the book.

  • Cells teach us about the mechanisms of life, and how to live rich, full lives.
  • Positive thoughts have a profound effect on behavior and genes, but only when they are in harmony with subconscious programming.  Negative thoughts have an equally powerful effect.
  • Single cells are capable of learning through environmental experiences and are able to create cellular memories, which they pass on to their offspring.

You don’t have to be a science major to understand and benefit from this book.  It’s easy to read and I found it to be uplifting.
