Tracking the Gene Key of the Day
- The 15th Gene Key, the Gift of Magnetism
This can only happen when you come within the sphere of Divine love. Your behaviour, your thoughts, your feelings, the very air you breathe must resonate to one purpose — what the Sufis call falling in love with the Beloved. The Beloved is not something out there — it is the essence of your true nature, and you do fall into it because it resides deep within you.
Vanity, as we have seen, pursues you right to the end of your journey. Even when you are living from the higher frequency of your Gift, vanity is still there. Only when you have attained the highest peak of consciousness does the mystical event occur — you give up everything you have attained. You have to court annihilation."

The greatest art is to live well. We’re never taught this. No one even mentions it when we're young. The art of living well. That would be a great open University course. It's exactly what the Gene Keys Golden Path is - it's about Purpose, Partnership, Prosperity - the 3 P's. When these three have been integrated and become a seamless symphony in our life, we can be said to be a master. This is quite different from the old image of mastery. Perhaps we thought it needed hours of meditation every day or that it was the domain of the ascetic. But I tell you, it isn't; it's for the ordinary human being. Mastery is for everyone. It isn't exclusive or elite. We needn't go to India in the winter for long silent retreats. The most powerful place we can discover Mastery is in our everyday life.

To have awareness means to be open, like that arch – to receive feedback, even criticism with a certain equanimity. It is not that we are becoming a Zen master, but we are becoming more human, and in doing so, we are more integrated in the world around us. Awareness does that - it brings a sense of calm. Calmness in our modern world really stands out. In fact, calmness, genuine calmness - has always stood out. A self-assured person is a calm person. And this isn’t about confidence or charisma. Those are character traits. I am talking about presence, the Siddhi in this Gene Key.
Presence is like the light, and Absence is the lack of light. Presence is moving through this Gene Key in varying degrees - in the Shadow, it is only an occasional visitor, at the Gift it is a regular friend who comes to visit, and whenever she comes, she brings a sense of calm and clarity."
