Gene Keys: The Story of a Book

first, an auditory-musical creative contemplation, followed by a transcription

What are the Gene Keys?

What are the Gene Keys to me?

My friend reminded me of this old story. It’s a story about a book, a book that exists in between time and the timeless, a book that contains all the secrets of life. You know I’ve been reading about this book for a long time. In Sandman, Destiny carries the Book of Life. This book is the Zohar, where every letter is a story in itself. A sort of fractal maze of knowledge. The first book I ever read was the Neverending Story, where the book is a world in itself, and the reader’s imagination populates this Fantasia, his enthusiasm rescues this realm from the nothingness.

Or, it’s like the Dragon Scroll in Kung Fu Panda. I like that reference because I’m a dragon in the Chinese mythology. The dragon scroll that holds the ultimate secret, the key to mastering kung fu once and for all.

The Gene Keys is a book of keys. They are keys that open 64 doors, and once these doors are opened they can never again be closed. Because you are the Gene Keys. When you choose the red pill, you are choosing to know yourself. Isn’t this the great sin of Adam and Eve, that they chose to know themselves? Every myth not only contains some insight, it also holds a shadow perspective, an alternative interpretation that gets swept under the rug of history. There is the mainstream and there is the counterculture, and they have danced side by side throughout human history, which is nothing but a story that adapts itself to the reader.

There are so many myths of this mysterious tome that has been lost, or hidden, or destroyed. A text that will unlock the mysteries of knowledge and power. A book of shadows, a book of leaves, a book of secrets. But… isn’t there a great joke in the heart of the mystery? That it was an open secret all along, that the door was never locked?

The Gene Keys, to me, are a language. Just because you have named something doesn’t mean you know it. It goes on changing. And that’s the mystery, anything that can be named can take on new dimensions, new qualities, and bring new perspectives. Everything is a facet of the mystery of life. And life can’t be intellectually grasped. Life is a dance we must enter into completely, foolishly, lovingly, fearlessly. So many systems of thought and belief are like liferafts that limit us to the surface of things. Gene Keys is more like scuba gear that gives us the courage to plunge into the depths. And who knows what we’ll find there? And whatever is revealed, does it really lessen the mystery of it all?

But if we can’t know anything then what’s the use of a language? What is a language? When I use these words, how is it that you can understand me? And how can I know that you actually understand me, that the words don’t mean something different for you? And what is meaning, anyway?

Isn’t it such a mysterious thing, to feel understood by another person? Two people can solve a math problem and reach the same solution, but isn’t it much more profound to open your heart to another and feel that you are truly heard? Isn’t that the true mystery? The simple fact that we are sharing this common experience, and that language is an integral part of it? Some have even said that language and the world are inseperable, that the world is language and language is the world. In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God… and the WORD was God.

In the myth of Adam and Eve, when Adam learns the names of the animals he has power over them. When King Solomon learns the names of the demons he has power over them. And in society when we know someone’s name we can assign them praise or blame, we can give them a bank account and referrals, a resume and a history. Naming is about power. It’s about control.

Language is a magic that we human beings have mastered… or that has mastered us. Because it’s easy to be a victim of language. Language is a web, a web that can obscure simple and obvious truths. A scientist, for instance, may not have any use for a mystical experience. It doesn’t land in the scientific web. The experience might have great personal value but the objective language web doesn’t know what to do with it and leaves it behind. So we have to be careful with language. Language conditions us to see the world in a certain way and believe that it has been understood. If we don’t understand the mathematical and scientific language that has become dominant in our world, we may believe that we are incapable of understanding life. And so language has belittled us. Or if we are adept at understanding and wielding languages we may believe that we know all there is to know about life, and so language has robbed us of the wonder and awe that comes through not knowing. Language can be a tool or it can be a master who robs us of our inheritance.

So when I say the Gene Keys is a language I mean that the Gene Keys are a tool and a bridge but they are also an invitation into the wordless. This, to me, is the most beautiful language. Like the language of music, which doesn’t mean anything in and of itself but rises to the heights of human experience in the wordless transmission of harmony. Even mathematics has this wordless, conceptless inner essence for those who love logic and paradox.

And in the Gene Keys the whole world lives inside us. King Solomon’s demons live in our DNA, where they lurk and feed on every moment that we live life unaware, loveless and joylessly. And the animals in the Garden are the gifts that flourish in the paradise of an open heart. And even the angels are the exalted virtues that pour effortlessly from the ever-new slate of the awakened mind, the seat of silence that welcomes God, the lonely mountain peak that issues the most crystalline, refreshing water. The whole topography of creation resides within us, and as we open up and embrace this vastness the little separate self is seen as but a tiny cog in the great living intelligence that is our cosmic body, the universe itself.

What are the Gene Keys? The Gene Keys are whatever you make them. In the beginning you might see a book filled with words, and ideas that you can agree or disagree with. But in the end you will see a blank canvas, a set of brushes and colors that appears to be limited but which reveal their limitlessness through the creative joy of experimentation. So this is what the Gene Keys are to me.

What are they to you?

Prosperity, Abundance, Inspiration

Hello!

According to my Gene Keys profile, my life’s work is being and my evolution is florescence. Being is winter… everything is stripped away until only the bare essential remains–the simple reality of existence. Florescence, on the other hand, is Spring, the essence of life in motion as a spontaneous creative outburst of life in all its wild magnificence.

I love this duality of being and florescence. In the book, Richard Rudd describes being as the archetype of the arahat, who has attained enlightenment and has nothing left to do, whereas florescence is the bodhisattva, who vows to strive and remain in samsara until all beings are liberated.

As it is Spring, I am connecting with the energy of florescence. I am cultivating this insight, also via Richard Rudd, “People don’t need guidance, they just need love. They just need to remember what true love feels like.”

I love this video. It’s so beautiful! So in the spirit of Spring, in the spirit of evolving into my creative genius, I’m going fishing… “I will make you a fisher of men!” And like Amma, “my religion is love.” So I offer all these services and gifts that are just ways for me to share my love and deepen into my love, which is my purpose.

Just a million ways to share the gift of love and spend my life in joyful creation. Idealistic? Impossible? Why? A growing reality I would invite you into.

I have set up an art gallery to showcase my sacred geometry mandalas and photography. I hope it takes off and that anyone who loves these pieces takes a moment to share them with friends & family. I’m also open to doing custom prints for anyone who is interested, which could save you some money.

I have all these pieces and I’m ready to scatter them into the wind. Every creation has a person whose heart it will speak to. And the more people who are moved by a creation the more that creation takes on a psychic love of its own. Right?

I’ve also started creating these Fiverr gigs. They’re little services I offer for $5. Some of them are not so little… Gene Keys readings, Angelic Song creation… others are very little–hug a tree, hug my mom. They’re all just ways to share my love. And why should I charge money for love? Well, it’s just a big joke, really. Maybe so we can start to see that this whole game of money and spirituality and separation is a big joke we’ve played on ourselves. And to pay the rent. Yes, in absurdity the cosmic meets the mundane 😉

http://www.fiverr.com/taosong

Along with this, I’d like to create more videos with contemplations and poetry and Gene Keys stuff, get my music out there more, create sacred tea journeys with Gene Keys contemplations, get a Hang (drum), work on my story about my brother, travel, connect with more people, live a life of service and joy! Extend my online presence, embrace my gifts and self-love and reach anyone who is open to receive this abundance and enjoy it 🙂

And it’s not a stressful undertaking of burdening myself with a bunch of work to “get by,” it’s a joyful risk of creating my own path and getting to know myself better, and understand what is possible and what people respond to.

Here’s a link to some music, by the way:

https://tomasmuriel.bandcamp.com

For anyone inspired by the Sun Hermit, I’d also like to start offering a service that you can get your own story, ask your own question, and have a little conversation with the sage himself.  I don’t know what will pick up and what will drop away, and if this is all sustainable or not. But… I’m having fun! It’s an adventure!

I’d love to hear about your own journey and insights or challenges related to prosperity.

And, as I’m getting in the habit of saying, if this touches your heart in any way, share it with your friends and family! There’s so much out there, so many people expressing their creative genius and also so many people trying to make some money. I am one in the great flood. Nevertheless, this whole divine play runs along the currents of grace… I surrender to the currents of life, and trust that, if there are those who will benefit from what I have to share, we will find each other. And if I have that one person who gets really turned on by all this, and shares it enthusiastically with a lot of people, it could make all the difference 🙂

Many blessings to you all!

With love,

Tom

Gene Keys: an Introduction

GK-header-banner-500

Gene Keys Website

What are the Gene Keys?

The Gene Keys are a contemporary spiritual transmission. They are a living wisdom that have the extraordinary capacity to transform your life.

The Gene Keys combine the wisdom of I Ching with our modern understanding of DNA to create a contemplative guide. This exquisite work brings together many divergent spiritual traditions and opens up new dimensions of scientific understanding. However, the Gene Keys are not really intended to deliver a comprehensive, logical understanding of how the world works. In many ways, the Gene Keys are an initiation into the vast mystery of existence.

The Gene Keys are a map of human consciousness. They describe three manifestations of consciousness: the shadow, the gift, and the siddhi. The shadow is made up of disallowed subconscious fears and desires that are either repressed and projected externally. The Gene Keys are an invitation to face our shadows and allow them to reveal their gifts, which is the journey of personal transformation. Through this process, we learn to open our hearts and share our creative genius with the world. This allows us to learn the true meaning of genius, love and prosperity.

The siddhic consciousness is that elusive enlightened state which so many strive for, but which the Gene Keys point to as the true, underlying nature of all states, unchanging and untainted.

The Art of Contemplation

The Gene Keys are also a doorway into the wonderful art of contemplation. Contemplation combines the focused effort and discipline of yoga with the effortless awareness of tantra. In contemplation, we train our minds on a concept or koan, and allow insights to unfold naturally, in their own time.

These insights are not just intellectual, but can be emotional and even deeply physical. These are contemplations that bring us back to the body, to our breath and our bones, and mutate the very quality of our awareness.

The Gene Keys are a slow, patient path of self-illumination. Gene Keys is a book! It is a tome of wisdom that encompasses and unites many disparate spiritual traditions into a golden braid of perennial wisdom. It is for all those who long to hold the keys of understanding, but find that every path they explore seems to leave something out, or feels like a limitation.

Gene-Keys-book-cover

The Gene Keys recognize that the human spirit is boundless, and structures and paths are meant to empower us, not limit us with outdated dogma. Love goes on evolving, it goes on breaking its own rules and overstepping its own limitations. This is the playful and joyous journey that the Gene Keys invite us on! We are imbibing a wisdom that is coded into the very structure of reality, and we are making it our own by bringing our own unique spirit to it.

My Personal Journey

My own journey with the Gene Keys has spanned four years and has evolved in stages. At first I only had the book, and I got sucked into its insights, vision of the future and impeccable structure. It was incredible! I couldn’t believe its depth, scope, and also simplicity! Honestly, I was pretty mesmerized. I had always had this longing for a spiritual classic that wasn’t from Ancient China or biblical times, but written in a contemporary style and in plain English. Gene Keys delivered. This book became, very quickly, my “Bible.”

There are 64 separate “keys,” and I must have read each one several times. And slowly, the work faded into the background. Different things came into my life–farming, meditation, but the Gene Keys was always there as a supportive friend smiling on the sidelines.

About a year or two later, I finally found my own personal “hologenetic” profile (read more here). The Gene Keys came alive once again, as it took on a greater personal relevance. Now I knew my life’s work, my purpose, my spiritual intelligence and so on 😉

I was once again sucked into this magical journey of love, light, and laughter.

Another year went by, and the Gene Keys Golden Path was released. Richard Rudd, the creator of the Gene Keys, started a website elucidating the Gene Keys and offering an online program to lead people through their profile to understand the Gene Keys at a deeper level. This program has three components, addressing one’s creative genius, opening the heart, and unlocking prosperity.

There are lots of programs out there that claim to help one do these things, and lots of people are drawn to them based on what they resonate with. Gene Keys always appealed to me based on its succinct clarity. The truths found in the Gene Keys are immediate and apparent, and simple to practice. Many new things seem to have been triggered as I’ve explored this program. I fell in love, and now I am making the first steps to really put myself out there and understand my own personal meaning of prosperity and community.

My whole journey with the Gene Keys has been one of love. Something about it just spoke very deeply to me, and now I find myself devoted to sharing it with others. It brings me such a great joy, and there is a process of “embodiment” that happens as we share this wisdom. We become the wisdom. When we speak the truth, we become the truth. When we see the light in others, we become the light, we see it everywhere. It’s an incredible journey, one that I am immensely grateful for.

In Conclusion…

Gene Keys Hologenetic Profile

 The Hologenetic Profile

gk-profile-2

What is a “hologenetic” profile? It sounds complex, and at first sight it is a strange tangle of numbers, words and lines in some kind of strange geometric figure.

What this profile is, however, is a simple guide to help you understand yourself and your place in the world. It is similar to an astrological profile, except that it is expressed in a different language. The science behind it remains the same.

The profile has many bits and pieces to it, which makes it seem complex. However, after studying it for a while and slowly contemplating every element, you come to see the basic simplicity that is organizing all of this. Your profile is your invitation to live out your own personal archetype, your genius.

Some elements are universal to every profile. Every profile has a life’s work, an evolution, a radiance and a purpose. Every profile can be read at the “shadow” level–the level of unrealized potential, the “gift” level–the level of sharing yourself in creative service with the world, and the “siddhic” level–the level of awakening to the reality of unity, and seeing your own personality as one perfectly integrated fractal expression of the whole, which you are no longer separate from.

Other elements are unique to every profile. We each have different “keys,” which are analogous to the hexagrams of the I Ching or codons of the DNA, that are dominant in our profile. These keys allow us to see our own uniqueness and embody it fully, bringing life and light to those aspects of consciousness we are here to embody. It is a paradox–by fully embodying our individuality we begin to transcend it.

GK-camels-banner-250

Does it really work?

In my experience, what you get out of any spiritual path is proportionate to what you put in. When I first discovered my profile, it really lit me up. It essentially told me that everything I loved, about life and myself, was my work, my radiance, my purpose. We are here to embody ourselves! It showed me very quickly which inauthentic patterns I was living out of fear, and which aspects of my authentic self I had covered up because I hadn’t accepted them as valid.

It’s another paradox–through the profile, having someone else tell me who I am, I suddenly found the freedom to be myself. So the profile is like any great spiritual path, when you follow it you don’t need it anymore. It’s just a bridge to get you to the other side, once you’ve crossed, you can forget about it. But what a bridge! I can guarantee there are few bridges you’ll enjoy crossing as much as this one 😀

Ultimately though, you’ll have to find out for yourself. You can learn more about the Gene Keys by reading my article, or by visiting the website. And if you’d like to see your profile, you can request it here.

If you would like me to give you a taste of what it all means and look at your profile with you, I would be happy to schedule a Skype session. Just let me know in the comments and I’ll be in touch!

I hope you appreciate this article and find yourself drawn into a new journey of awakening, fulfillment and bliss!
