The Sufis are good in this area. They know all about the cleaning fire. They know about Devotion. They say to become your longing, realise how deep it goes, and then let it burn you and burn you until you're on fire with it. We can choose an external figure if we wish - our lover, our guru, our god. It can be any deity. The figure becomes the symbol of our longing, and we pour that long into the symbol. Maybe it's because they came out of the deserts, out of the fire and heat, maybe that's why the Sufis and the Arabic cultures resonate so much with these Siddhis.
Rapture is to become possessed by our longing, our love. It's to become drunk with it. It's to let it burn us clean. We offer up our every desire to God or the guru. We see everything that captivates our desire as a mirror of the one we seek. Because we offer it up and forgo it on the external plane, the fuel elevates our consciousness."

We recycle emotion, suffering and toxin, and the earth has a lot of toxin. We’ve created a huge amount of toxic material that won’t naturally biodegrade. We’re going to find new ways to return these materials back to their natural states. In this sense we’ll become reverse alchemists, so that we can clean up the mess we’ve made of Gaia."
- The 49th Way, the Siddhi of Rebirth
We begin to listen to the evolutionary impulse moving behind events, behind everything. We begin to feel the hidden higher purpose behind everything. We begin to remember the secret. When we listen from our heart, our soul, then we begin to see hope in everything around us.
In listening to a higher frequency, we first of all have to resonate at that frequency. Our whole body has to vibrate at a higher frequency, and then we feel more of the truth. We feel through our body, our organs, particularly through our belly, and we begin to feel the higher purpose within things.
The more we listen in this way, holding someone’s higher purpose always foremost, the more we’ll emanate that through our listening, and the more others will feel that trust emanating from us."

In many ways, it is the 19th Shadow of Co-dependence that contains the seed of the 19th Siddhi of Sacrifice. In a co-dependent relationship, both partners have sacrificed a part of their true selves to the relationship, and the resulting lack of synthesis they feel drives the negative patterns of the relationship. In a relationship that is truly interdependent, both partners also sacrifice their sense of individuality into a higher vision of their Divinity, holding nothing back for themselves at all.
The true meaning of interdependence is about entering into a state of union with all beings in the cosmos, which involves the death of the separate self.
This kind of sacrifice can only occur when you give your heart unconditionally to another. Instead of dying, you are actually reborn as a higher dimensional being.
In surrendering your smaller self, you attain realisation of your greater Self. Our awareness is like a series of Russian dolls — as we make each leap in awareness, we come to realise we are housed within a wider framework than we had previously understood.
- The 19th Gene Key, the Siddhi of Sacrifice
One day we’ll return to the source. It won’t happen because of anything we do but because our particular story has found its way home. All we can do is follow the Emanation. We think we’re travelling into the future, but we’re really travelling back to the beginning.
One day, all our dreams will come true, and all those we’ve loved will become merged within our heart. We’ll realise that we’ve never died, nor has anyone. It’s all been the most wonderful dream, and the greatest paradox is that if we hadn’t been asleep in the first place, we would never have even heard it!”

For the 60th Gene Key, this whole notion of contemplation is vital. In a way it comes out of this Gene Key because we need a form to contemplate but there’s a lot more to the form than its content. Our continued interaction with the form ignites a wild wisdom and this emerges in the gap between our intent and the form. It emerges spontaneously, surprisingly and brings with it great rewards."
- The 60th Way, the Gift of Realism
Imagine how different the world might be if we remembered what lay beyond death. We would quickly realise that we’re accountable for our every act, thought, word and deed. There’s no escaping Justice.
To find wisdom we have to give up knowledge. Wisdom is alive, vibrant, wild, spontaneous, illogical, paradoxical. Anyone can gain knowledge, but few become wise.
So be gentle with yourself but crystal clear about your mind. It isn’t the enemy, but it isn’t here to protect you either. We tend to use it to make ourselves feel safer, but if we don’t feel safe it’s because we aren’t accustomed to states beyond the mind. This is why the Gene Keys takes us there gradually, showing us how to open our heart softly and slowly, so that the higher frequencies can change us over time."

The process of Ascension concerns the highest levels of refinement. Each step along the way is so important. We can’t skip a single step. Every difficult experience that life brings us must be passed through and transformed inside us, in our heart.
Ascension is given only very rarely to those subtle orchids that have refined their human energies over much time, and along the way lost all their hard edges. The greed isn’t transcended, it’s simply softened, like wind-blasted rocks that become all smooth and feminine.
To ascend beyond the human form is to enter into the Divine Tenderness of the great Mother. The journey there is so masculine because we have to be a warrior and so determined. We have to sacrifice everything along the way. Finally just before the peak, we realise we’ve become this pure yin essence. It’s kind of a joke that one extreme gives way to its opposite."
