Overview

For many years, genes have been thought of as immutable: “You can’t change, it’s hereditary” was the mantra. But studies now show that genes are functioning and changing, every minute, every second. According to The Divine Code of Life, dormant genes have the potential to “wake up” and transform personality and outlook. The book shows how mental and emotional factors — negatives like stress and positives like excitement, joy, gratitude, and spirituality — are also involved in switching genes on or off. Drawing on recent scientific research and the author’s own observations, this book shows that humans can bring forth their talents at any age. How? Dr. Murakami argues that a positive outlook can turn on the genes that are necessary to bring happiness and success into anyone’s life and turn off the bad genes. He calls this process "genetic thinking" — a science-based approach to controlling the genes by cultivating enthusiasm and inspiration.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Humankind in the twenty-first century is faced with challenges that cannot be solved by science or religion alone. We need to blend out spiritual understanding with modern scientific knowledge in order to overcome suffering. Kazuo Murakami's important research brings us closer to that goal."
—His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"The Divine Code of Life is one of the best discussions I have seen on the interplay of genes, environment, and consciousness. It is a devastating argument against genetic determinism and the idea that one's identity is written in the genome. It captures the majestic and spiritual dimension of the universe without being too religious. I think it turned on a a few of my good genes."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of Reinventing Medicine and The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

"Dr. Murakami's book is a sage description of elegant science and its potential application to significantly improve the readers' lives. Awe, respect, and the author's passion for cutting-edge science fill the pages with information that provides sound reasons to live in a positive way. The importance of our minds in creating our personal environment for success and happiness is clearly established. Inspiring and solidly based, The Divine Code of Life is a beacon of light for these challenging times."
—Joyce W. Hawkes, PhD, author of Cell-Level Healing

    Something Great

    I have long been interested in the connection between science and spirituality. I've read David Bohm's works and watched 'What the Bleep do We Know?' So when I heard about 'Divine Code' I immediately started reading it and finished it within one day. I was inspired and energized to live a more fulfilling life. For all the skeptics out there who don't believe in anything that we cannot perceive with our senses, hear is a resounding answer. The power of gratitude and positive thinking is supported by scientific experiments as this wonderful author elucidates in this easy to read book. Murakami concludes that life is such a miracle that it must be the product of 'somthing great.' He briefly touches on the possibility that we have a soul and reincarnate. Wanting more information on the soul and reincarnation, I sought out new information on the soul and reincarnation and a friend recommended 'This Side of the Gate' by John P. Johnston. It's a fascinatingly fresh look at these concepts and adds insight into what Murakami only briefly speculates on. It answers questions such as 'what is something great?' 'What is God?' 'What is karma and reincarnation?'
