Wow, finding the Gene Keys fascinating for such CLARITY on the true GRIT of the human condition!
This week, the Key in Illumination is the 25th, and with my birthday on Saturday, it’s my Life’s Work…
Universal Love – through the Gift of Acceptance – from the Shadow of Constriction.
Oh boy. Acceptance. With the dilemma of ANXIETY.
Going through all the material on the 25th to get a sense of what to say about this Key, ACCEPTANCE is showing itself to be a MAJOR spiritual passage.
For EveryOne. All HUMANING pivots around Life through Acceptance. Or lack of it.
The difficulty of TRUE acceptance – of yourself, and others – relies on REAL OPTIMISM. Which we crowd out of our awareness with the human dilemma of ANXIETY. Anxiety IS. We have it in our DNA. It drives our existence here. We have to get DOWN with it!
It’s why we follow the BREATH – to release the mind from the GRIP of THINKING and to give the body SPACE WITHIN for some relief from the Constriction of Anxiety.
The name for the 25th Gene Key in the iChing is INNOCENCE and the TRUST required to see our Selves and Others as Innocent – when we would rather contract into humanity’s ingrained, yet TAUGHT, way of dealing with our anxiety through SUSPICION of each other – is a massive Journey Home.
It is the Journey of the GREATEST optimism of all – UNIVERSAL LOVE – and the Gift that will bring us to our only authentic goal, of True Enlightenment.
To BEcome Enlightened is to RETURN to the Innocence we also arrived here with – it’s the journey from Gautama to Buddha, from Jesus to Christ. And we have no choice but to navigate this Journey with the MIND. Until we don’t have to any more…
And the mind’s “best response” to anxiety is Constriction. We stop BREATHING deeply!
And we know that the opposite of Constriction is GROWTH.
So we GROW when we bring ANY understanding of our innate nature of KINDNESS and LOVE into the present moment when we are anxious and fearful.
Through efforts at UNDERSTANDING, we finally learn to ACCEPT what is.
A Gift of Grace.
And in the growth we can find the SPACE to let everyone off the hook. Even YOU!
And through this ACCEPTANCE, understanding becomes a part of the fabric of our BEingness here.
We get SPACE in places previously constricted – chest too tight for a deep breath? so many thoughts you can’t THINK? – that opens us up for something NEW to MOVE IN!
Making way for the dissolution of anxiety and the constriction it brings!
But we have a dilemma – we want out of the ANXIETY of the present moment right NOW! We’re riddled with the DESIRE for things to be DIFFERENT! ALL THE TIME!
And we SUFFER! And FLEEING from suffering just creates even more suffering!
IF we ACCEPT the suffering with ANY new Awareness or Curiosity, we ROB the mind of the material to PROLONG or CREATE another suffering! If we don’t participate with the mind, by rejecting or running away, the mind is FORCED to follow US! We forget this!
And so we are asked to let in TRUE LOVE! To FLOW with Eternity! And with the 25th’s Programming Partner, the 46th, we can reach the Realms of Delight and Ecstasy!
By just breathing and letting what IS, BE. Tat tvam asi ~ I AM THAT. It is what it IS.
KNOW you ARE whatever you are thinking and feeling. When we take the CONFLICT of resisting WHAT IS out of the equation, and say to our wound “I accept you” and give it the space to EXIST, it can actually START to change! This is how to bring change IN.
Even FEAR wants to be acknowledged. “See me!” says Fear. You know, there’s nothing to be afraid of EXCEPT Fear ITSELF! Ever heard that one before?! Right?!
Whatever IS, LOVE IT! Its Ground Zero. Baseline. Everything is always perfect. Even that shit sandwich. The fear and grief and terror of resisting LIFE. Let it roll over you.
THAT is Earth Ecstasy. Nothing to “get hung” about. Strawberry fields forever. He/She loves you, ya ya ya ya. ALL of Existence loves you. Make love with Existence.
The Return to Innocence is our birthright. The flowering of your heart SUPPORTS the unfolding of your Unique Potential, the Realization of your Divine Nature. Trust this.
May All Your Thoughts Nourish Your Life In Peace and Plenty!
Love & Blessings from us Both,
Kathie & Paul
