“Bruce has done a remarkable job of sharing how – by developing trust in the Inner Guide we all have in common – we can include the symbolic contents of our unconscious mind in very familiar forms, such as geometric ones. … This work is a fun and useful addition to the list of ACIM studies books. Enjoy, and awaken.”
– Gary R. Renard, best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe
“The Geometry Code elegantly approaches the underlying assumptions of the belief in separation – the treasured wounds we won’t forgive which prevent healing – from the context of Oneness. Using ancient and modern mirrors, such as universal laws and sacred geometry, it reveals our true shared selves. I’m impressed with the depth and breadth of this book; it’s really profound. Thank you for bringing it into being.”
– Leonard Laskow, MD; author of Healing With Love

Top Five Reasons to read the new book “The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation” by Bruce Rawles
|To read a book inspired by the Hermetic philosophy classic about universal laws “The Kybalion” on it’s 100th anniversary|
|To deepen one’s understanding about the mystical mirroring aspects of all form, going beyond – yet including – sacred geometry, and reaching into the realms of pure non-dual metaphysics|
|To see how modern quantum physics, ancient wisdom traditions and everything in between all point to the importance of choosing an all-inclusive thought system that embraces all symbols from life and welcomes a transpersonal, liberating interpretation|
|To complement other ACIM studies for avid students of A Course In Miracles|
|To enjoy a light-hearted look at how being kind and including All in our definition and identity of Self helps us find and sustain the unchanging peace that nothing in the world can touch.|
Thanks to my wife, Nancy Bolton-Rawles for suggesting this list! 🙂
An overview of The Geometry Code book
An Inclusive Identity transforms our experience from separate to whole. Our inner teacher of kindness reinterprets every day events in ways that lead us to freedom. Observing our minds with this guidance, we apply universal laws to our individual lives, using geometric metaphors as memory aids, releasing the identification with unconscious victim scripts that sabotage our happiness. This book integrates practical insights from modern physics, ancient Hermetic Laws, non-dual metaphysics, transpersonal psychology – and humor – as tools for undoing conflicting beliefs we’ve dreamed ourselves into. Symbols remind us to forgive the dreamer.
We explore seven laws in depth and demonstrate how a mindfulness that embraces ‘other’ as ‘self’ can reverse the typical misapplication of these inescapable laws of Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause & Effect and Generation. Ubiquitous geometric symbols, paired to each of these laws – the circle, vesica piscis, sine wave, line, spiral, fractal and yin-yang – and their countless commonplace variations, seen from the vantage point of shared interests, reflect these ideas. The inspired use of natural law restores attributes of life, love, strength, purity, beauty, perfection and gratitude to our awareness. Our intentions of loving kindness make use of these memory aids for returning our minds to wholeness as we forgive ourselves, using dreams to heal instead of harm.
Who The Geometry Code book was written for
This book bridges the gap between sacred geometry and non-dual metaphysics, going from manifestation (a.k.a. effect) back to cause (our mind, the basis for any metaphysical system worth it’s ‘meta’ 🙂 For years – almost immediately after the first book was out – I’ve been asked for another book that goes into the meaning behind the symbols. Every time I attempted to convey the symbolic meaning, I kept realizing that (personal, as in ‘my interpreted’) meanings change depending on the context when seen from our individual or cultural perspectives. The ‘universal’ aspect kept me searching until I re-examined some of my metaphysical background roots and found some profound reminders. Identity is the key! If we try to approach symbolic interpretation from our individual (seemingly separate, unique) personal identities, we ultimately end up with meanings that clash and oppose. Only when we start from an identity based on wholeness, inclusion and completely shared interests, can we hope to find meaning (and then only as a reflection) in the symbols we find around us constantly, both geometric, human, planetary or otherwise. This book attempts to explore that territory. Therefore, the meanings attributed to the archetypal symbols in the book (e.g. circle, vesica piscis, sine wave, line, spiral, fractal and Yin Yang) are as generalized as I could make them. I start out with the caveat that the symbols (and the 7 cosmic laws they pair with) ONLY are truly meaningful in the context where we bring our isolated viewpoints together to be purified of their divergences and conflicts. Even then, they are really only helpful as reminders that point back to a decision in our minds (that we’ve already made) to choose oneness over special interests.
Having said all that, I imagine there are plenty of you (like me) who ARE interested in both sacred geometry AND metaphysics (which is why I put the Metaphysics category, plus Psychology, Philosophy, Spirituality, Symbolism and Self-Help on the top of the back cover. 🙂 I apologize for this being a bit long-winded, but I want to make sure that those curious about the book know what it is … and isn’t. In some ways The Geometry Code (TGC) is a complement to the first book, Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook (SGDS). TGC has only a dozen or so images and the rest is text, where SGDS has only a dozen or so pages of text, and the rest (1300+) images. I’m hoping these two offerings will fulfill a wider scope of interests. I had a great deal of fun putting this second book together, and there are generous quotes from familiar luminaries in a range of backgrounds, as well as my amused ramblings, a little word play and other humor and a mix of ideas that will ideally bring a smile to your face as they did to mine. I VERY much appreciate all of you, your interest, your support, friendship, sharing and kindnesses; some of you over many years. I definitely want to thank all of you who have offered suggestions, inspirations and editing help (especially my Mom!) Please let me know what you’d like to see next, what can be improved on the website or just whatever feedback you might feel inspired to offer.
The Geometry Code screensaver – companion to the book of the same name
The Geometry Code book became available June 5, 2012. Gratitude is due to all, including recent inspiration from kindred souls …
The Geometry Code Meditation Tool, Screen Saver (by Mika Feinberg) and eBooklet (by Bruce Rawles) (a perfect companion for the book) IS also available now (and has been for several years)!
Here’s an example of a similar exquisite screensaver by Mika of LightSOURCE that gives an idea of the beauty of the animation and how skillfully he uses color, gradient blending and smooth transitions to make wonderful meditative visual experiences:

Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook – also available now!
Bruce’s first book, Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook – Universal Dimensional Patterns, is still available and is a great introduction to his more recent work, as well as a timeless reference for readers of all ages with a variety of interests.
