The Lost Symbol

Dan Brown last fiction novel is on any regard a remarkable book. Because of the history, the rhythm of drama and the capacity to gather information, summarize it and make it real. I read it in just one day, coming out from a tremendous book of Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, the Templar's Revelation, a book that I would not hesitate to recommend to any reader of this blog. The style of writing of Brown is even better than in the last novels. He is stylish, accurate, articulates very well what he look to tell us. Under an esoteric or symbolic point of vu the book is also remarkable true. I found two or three minor doctrinary errors but, globally, the book is precise. He unveils some of the ritualism involved in the Masonic works but Brown knows where to stop and never passes the limits. I read somewhere that our good friend Robert Lomas as advised him on Masonic subjects. If it is so, Lomas deserves a warm welcome and gratitude.
Probably, I am partial but anyone that reads carefully this book becomes even more curious about Freemasonry and the Craft. There is something to discover coming in and I am grateful that Brown followed the line and the practices of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, on my opinion, the most meaningful and philosophical rite of the three normally practiced in continental freemasonry. Is that part of esoterism that makes the Masonic journey a wonderful one. So, Reader, take some minutes of your time and pass by a bookshop close to you and buy the book. Read it carefully and if you would like to know more send us an email to the attention of the secretary of Luz do Oriente. We will be happy to give you more clues of research. You quickly come to the conclusion that Freemasonry, the Gnostic gospels, Jesus and the Church of Jerusalem, the Templars, The Rosecrucians have something in common. You only despise what you cannot know, but you should open your heart and mind to the knowledge that makes you a divine seed of God’s marvelous Creation. Normally we don’t deserve it but sometimes we let that flash of divinity entrust in ourselves and transform us in better human beings. Make that effort in every minute of your time. And a Happy New Year.
