The Lost Word - The Lost Symbol

Here is a review on Dan Brown’s bestselling novel, “The Lost Symbol”. Around Chapter 82 Reverend Dean Galloway – dean of the cathedral enters the story and we are told, “looked like he had been alive forever.” We then go through a, “discreetly hidden door that lead into an administrative annex.” Interesting. Then out of the blue in big print in brass nameplate, it's announced his title, “The Reverend Dr. Colin Galloway Cathedral Dean.” We know here is a very important person. Then we find Mr Langdon, a doubter, of the Ancient Mysteries, “you do not believe in such things.” Wow, a symbiologist, without answers. We then find, “The Secret hides within the Order” and the words order are capitalised, so we know we are dealing with the very Special, Highest of All. We are then asked the question, “know ye not that ye are gods” and “Man created in God’s image” introduces new themes...Psalms 82:6 “Ye are gods!” We are then forewarned of the great pending change, “The religion of the future, Einstein had predicted, will be a cosmic religion. It will transcend personal God avoid dogma and theology.” This is astounding, one could say clairvoyant statements, which are likely to be true. The seal was broken, by Ms. Solomon, setting in motion a series of events from which there is no return. Katherine stared dumbfounded at the reverend, as he was referring to the Seven Seals of Revelation. The reverend tells Langdon, “You do not have eyes to see.” Will Langdon understand there are Seven Messages, Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues of Revelation? Next we move to Chapter 84....something is pending...”I never imagined I would live to witness this moment”...”The Mysteries are moving out of the inner circles...out of darkness...into the light.” The pew warmers are wondering what’s going on. Peter Solomon senses the danger of this time, “He sensed something was watching him...waiting...intending to do him great harm.” There is no easy road to travel. Change never just happens. But a, “catalyst...has the power to transform this world” awakens us to something is going to happen....and the, “new development occurs incredibly fast.” This is real telepathy working globally, the noetic world. We await the, “transformative moment of enlightenment”...at-one-ment of mind and soul. Chapter 85 is Transformation.....with Langdon stating, “I had no idea” as two symbols fused to create one. Man and God are one. The devil in Chapter 86 states, “In order to create, I must destroy.” Will good triumph over evil...does good eventually triumph?

The establishment in Chapter 86 is shaken, “Dean Galloway felt a lightness in his step that he had not felt in years”...”He had spent his life straining to be heard above the din of ignorance”...”They defended their worldly desires by citing Scripture they did not understand”...”filled with the false life of the theological vine.” Dan Brown states, “It is always darkness before the dawn.” How can these statements be made, “we have the truth”, haughty, confident, I stand unchallenged. Chapter 88 warns, “Time is running out.” Know thyself is the word. There is no intercessor. Each must stand alone. Chapter 89, we are told “The pyramid is a real map, Galloway had told them, and it points to a real location.” This is recognition of the divinity of each person, life is real, each moment is to be revered. Each story is real. There is no aborting life as respect becomes integrity. We are all with God without religion. Without wax our words are true....there will none that “preferred their own feeble gestures of personal sacrifice...fasting, Lenten renunciation, tithing.” It is recognised sacrifice is daily, in all actions, sabbath continually one might say In Chapter 98 Robert finds his birth outfit, “Where the hell are my clothes?”...”I’m in a box!” is a fitting methaphor. “I have been buried alive”...”I am going to suffocate alone in this box.” Skipping along to Chapter 107, the question starst flowing, “Does heaven exist? What happens when I die?”...and then, “pure consciousness” is recognised, now. Chapter 108, wow, a short Chapter...”the physical world had ceased to exist.” Chapter 110 the “bell began tolling” and by Chapter 111 we are at, “wonderful new age of enlightenment.” No one knows quiet what is going to be the spark, but we are learning, “I create as I speak.” Then the pathway opens, “Your passion is an important catalyst in the coming change.” “Study the Bible”...especially the final pages as the 7Angel Messages, 7 Seals, 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues are going to be known, I suppose...”a reveal-ation. The Book of Reveal-ation in the Bible predicts an unveiling of great truth and unimaginable wisdom.” The students give Peter Solomon applause. Scenes of action follow. By Chapter 126 we are told, “You have walked past it and never seen it.” No one is going to tell you, you must find out for yourself. No one can do it for you. Read and reread chapters 130-133....”Concealed within those pages there hides a wonderful secret”...talking of the Old and New Testaments...”the Word has been the Bible”...”which awaits in darkness at the foot of the staircase”...scythe...hourglass...”index finger was extended, pointing

directly at a large open Bible as if to say, “The answer is in there!”...”a vast collection of untapped wisdom waiting to be unveiled.” Twitter, Google, Wikipedia...the noetic world...”Out of many, one.” Pure consciousness...hope. Well worth a read.
