I haven’t done a piece about the Gene Keys for a while, so it’s about time…
The sun is in Gene Key 52 from June 26 through June 30 and this Gene Key is a very important one for me personally. It sits in my core wound in my hologenetic profile and is therefore also associated with my vocation. Besides that, GK 52 is also a very collective Gene Key…
The path of the 52nd Gene Key goes from the shadow of stress over the gift of restraint to the siddhi of stillness.
I don’t have to say much about stress – it’s a collective sickness of being flooded by information and not being able to process them. Everybody knows how stress feels like and unfortunately it has become so “normal”, that people even seek stress, to feel alive. This of course results in all kind of long term physical problems as well as psychological ones.
The first remedy for stress is the gift of GK 52: restraint.
I struggled a long time with the deeper meaning of this and didn’t get how this can be a gift, but it becomes clear once you understand, that restraint is a necessary step – daily practiced – for the information overflow.
You can’t go from stress directly to stillness – the gap is way to huge between this opposing states of being. So first, you have to slow down, do less, think less, trust more in the flow of life.
You have to realize, that you don’t have to make the flow of life happen – you just become a vessel of its expression. In a way, being a vessel of any kind, is already a restraint for life and opens for the possibility of stillness.
Stillness itself is one of the most beautiful gifts you can give to a world, that still believes in the superiority of action and doing. Everybody longs for stillness inside – most people unconsciously and totally unaware of it.
I have written an article about the beauty of stillness because it’s such an important quality in my life.
Stillness is the space between words, that provides the frame for the appearance of the universe.
“Stillness is how the world will be transformed. Although on a first pass, that doesn’t seem to make sense, it’s an absolute truth. Deep within your DNA, stillness is all there is. When you enter into the world of the Siddhis, you come into paradox over and over again. The ultimate stillness is to be found in movement. Our bodies are constantly in movement. At the cellular level, you are being rebuilt over and over again every hour you are alive, and yet one day, when your body is dead and gone, there is nothing but stillness. The movement is within the stillness and the stillness is within the movement.”
-The 52nd Way, the Siddhi of Stillness
So let us use these days to do less, think less and talk less – listen more, love more and be more.
Contrary to the common belief, that we need more doers, we urgently need more “Be-ers” (which doesn’t necessarily include drinking more beers ?)
Restraint is necessary for a flowing river to become a serene pond.
May you enjoy the beautiful and rich stillness inside the movement. Look for stillness everywhere – become a stillness detective…
Love and Peace,
