The Lost Symbol---the truth is out there

I just finished Dan Brown's book "The Lost Symbol." I couldn't lay it down. I would love to write a book so riveting. I wonder if he understands the impact his book is going to have. It's one of those stories that makes you want to Google every bit of information he dished out. Often, I found myself wondering, "Could this be true?"

How much in his book is true about the Freemasons? It makes me want to find out. I'll bet a lot of other people will want to too. It also makes me wonder about the Bible and what we find there. I already believe humans are gods in embryo and that our thoughts have the power to transform matter. I know it's true. I don't know if there is really a science called Noetics, but I wouldn' t be surprised. (I haven't googled it yet! =) I already knew this power exists. I think most people are afraid of it--of what it means.

I have always been fascinated with the unknown, because I don't believe anything remains that way. We use only eight percent of our brain. What is the other 92% for? Hmm. I have my suspicions.

Whatever you want to call it...energy, priesthood, mystical power, magic. It is the same thing. The power and knowledge to change matter with thought. The secret is that we don't know how to use it. God has tried to teach us, but even then, we don't understand. We don't get it. We fear what we don't know. We call what we don't understand evil, or Satan. Not everything out there that isn't preached by your religion is from the devil. (Just my opinion)

Dan Brown is right on one point. Look at all the religions of the world. They are full of symbolism. Including my own. Our temple has many rituals and rites that others don't understand and think are strange. I think they are beautiful and enlightening. A gift from God to help us understand, and yet, we don't. Every time I go, another layer of the onion is revealed. Milk to meat. No matter how often you study the scriptures, you learn something new. Why is that? Milk to meat.

I'm so glad Dan wrote this book (whether his facts are true or not) It will make people search and study on a quest to find truth, because they'll be curious. And like he said in his book, truth resonates in all of us. We recognize it. It blossoms inside. Anything that is a catalyst for that kind of movement is a good thing. Every personal revelation we receive is because we searched, asked and pleaded for clarity. Think about that.

I've read all his other books and watched Angels and Demons a couple of nights ago with my husband. He's a pro with the suspense!

I love Brown's idea's and suspense for novels but I am such a history buff that I often find myself reading them going-"Nuh-uh!"

I do plan on getting ahold of this one to see where it goes.

You know what I loved about this book? It wasn't just wondering if the things he wrote about were true. It was like you said, recognizing the things I already knew to be true. I was deeply touched by the book and loved it a lot. (I'm a Dan Brown fan anyway but this is truly my favorite of his, followed by Angels & Demons.)

Excellent post, Melissa!
