I had a number of ‘wow’ moments while listening to The Wisdom of Your Cells, a lecture by Bruce Lipton. Lipton has a doctorate in biology and so can be said to know his stuff, if you will, when it comes to human anatomy.
In The Wisdom of Your Cells Lipton makes claims that are a significant contradiction to established science and medicine. For instance, Lipton says human cells are not organisms controlled entirely by biology but are actually conscious entities that strongly respond — and change — according to human thought and mental focus.
Lipton also states that we can affect and control our cells, positively or negatively, according to our mental outlook. If we engage in harsh mental and emotional activity like stress or fear or anger, for example, our cells suffer and the result is physical body breakdown. If, on the other hand, we take on a positive outlook then our cells are more likely to remain healthy and thrive, and the benefit will be good physical health.
Mainstream science and medicine now claim that reducing stress and maintaining a positive mental outlook may be a help in promoting good physical health. Lipton goes much further than this, saying there is an absolute connection between the mind and body and that this connection causes — or reverses — physical illness. (Lipton references a good deal of data to back this claim up.)
Lipton goes on to say that human beings are the macro or large scale version of the micro cells within the human body. As the cells within the human body exist and function to keep the organism (the body) alive so humans exist to likewise keep an organism alive: existence itself. In other words, we are all here to support life and must act in cooperation to succeed at this endeavor. Lipton says human conflict, instead of human cooperation, is leading to the death of the organism.
Imagine for a moment that the cells within the human body did not cooperate but instead engaged in conflict, with some cells ultimately destroying others. This is a rough description of how cancer occurs, and if this phenomenon is not arrested in some way the organism will die. And so, says Lipton, will the organism of human existence or life itself die if the mutual destruction of the necessary parts — human beings — isn’t stopped.
Again, Lipton backs up his assertions with data. I’m not a trained scientist but I consider myself fairly intelligent and reasonable and Lipton’s supporting data seems legitimate and persuasive to me. Additionally, Lipton does not come across as having a political ax to grind as much as he’s attempting to pass along information he considers quite profound.
Lipton’s message speaks to human existence as something more profound and, and also more powerful, than the presence of human bodies. We are, at our core, incredible and powerful energy. This isn’t a new message, certainly not in New Age circles, but Lipton’s scientific background and his providing data to back up his assertions gives this outlook weight it may sometimes lack.
I’m certain that there are critics of Lipton’s assertions, and some of these criticisms claim that Lipton’s scientific reasoning is flawed. I found The Wisdom of Your Cells to be compelling and also important. I recommend it, and recommend people to consider the work for themselves and then reach their own conclusions.
