Tracking the Gene Key of the Day
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."

We all need to get on this wave and ride it. We all need to find our higher purpose. We need to locate its vibration inside us and let it radiate within the cells of our being. We need to let it flow into our relationships, and then into our work and actions. We’ll instantly begin to prosper. Giving releases the currents of healing. It heals us, and it heals the whole. Giving of ourself out of the joy of our heart, out of the generosity of our inner being – that’s true power. That’s what will move mountains. Make no mistake about the power of this Gene Key – it will transform our world.”

“Wisdom isn’t dependent on age. Wisdom is dependent on love. How deeply can we love? How far can we expand our love into the green meadows of life?
Life is an unravelling. It’s already complete, even though it’s still in the process of unravelling. Can we be both? Can we be both its beginning and its end? Can we be awake in the dream that’s the middle? The ancients called life a Leela, a play. It’s a good translation of the word, because the word play means both a piece in theatre, a drama, and also playfulness; they’re both needed.
We can’t make a joke about everything in the middle. There’s so much suffering, so much tragedy, so much injustice. It’s hard to be playful in the face of most of what goes on on this planet. But the playfulness, the innocence, is the inner awareness. That’s where the dance is. We may be grieving on the outside, but on the inside there’s an awareness of the play unfolding.”
- The 3rd Way, the Siddhi of Innocence
When someone has entered the doorway of death deeply enough within themselves, they discover the profound meaninglessness of existence. As this great truth begins to permeate them from the inside out, it literally kills off every aspect of their own identification with what they are.
The joke at the heart of all creation can only be experienced directly. It lives within the heart of every cell of your being."
