Dr. Bruce Lipton answers those questions in his famous book The biology of belief. He researched cells and how cells interact for many years and realised that our DNA is not fixed, as scientists used to believe, and it doesn’t determine who we are. It influences us, but it does not decide our future, our illnesses or the way we relate to others. Dr. Lipton found out that the environment is much more important than the DNA to determine how a person would develop. This gives us hope as we know now that we can change everything, and I emphasise this, everything in our lives. We are not conditioned by our parents or other ancestors.
Our parents gave us life. That was their job. Now, it is our turn to use our human skills to create a reality for ourselves. In the process, we can even change our DNA. Are you sceptical about this? I was too. Until I read his book. Here is Dr. Bruce Lipton presenting some of his ideas in a short video.
