This review is from: The God Code:The Secret of our Past, the Promise of our Future (Paperback)WOW! I just finished reading "The God Code", and found it to be one of those books that's just so interesting and absorbing that I didn't want to put it down. It's also one of those books that leads you to ponder, wonder and think about the world as it is, and the world as it could be...
"The God Code" speaks about a code that was discovered in our DNA, and the implications of such a code. While using the science called "gematria" (which involves converting words/letters back to either of 2 of the most ancient languages, and then applying the number values associated with the letters of one or both of these languages to find words that are "related in nature"), the code "God/Eternal within the body" was found.
This means that in every one of our bodies, God's signature, or reminder to us, is shown in each and every one of our cells - how wonderful and incredible is that!!!
This book also discusses the idea that this code could be used as a reminder to us that our sameness is more important than our differences - as we all have the same code within us. In a time where we humans tend to look for the differences between us, and then use these differences to ignite all sorts of negative feelings and reactions (including war), it would serve us well to look for what will unite us - for that which would bring us together as the family we all are.
As the author so poignantly shows, during times of extreme strife (like Sept. 11 and the many major disasters of our time), we tend to forget our differences, and jump into a mode of helping one another without even thinking about it first - it's as if these times are a demonstration of who we "really" are. But, how can we demonstrate this level of caring for our fellow man without there having to be a disaster - what would it take?
Overall, I found this to be a very interesting read. And as such, I would recommend it to anyone interested in the idea of unity vs. separatism, as well as those who are intriqued by the idea that our Creator left us a sign to remind us that we are more than the bodies we are currently in.
