You may or may not love the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail but I am going to use a clip from it to possibly bring in some new awareness. Laughter often brings out a much deeper wisdom, but even if you don't laugh I would ask that you stick with me through til the end.
There is a scene in the movie that is particularly funny, but also offers something for all of us in our daily lives, something to contemplate in our being. And of course I will tie it into the work of the Gene Keys. The scene I am referring to this the one with the seemingly innocuous White Rabbit that King Arthur and his knights have come to vanquish, a rabbit that has apparently caused much suffering. Take 2 minutes to watch the video before continuing to read.
"Oh I warned you.....its just a harmless little bunny isn't it!"
This video was played to me by a professor during my university days in relation to space shuttle engineering. He had been someone who advised NASA not to launch the Challenger mission, a mission that ended in disaster and the loss of life. It was the harmless dent in the armour that was overlooked that brought the Challenger to its end, the video of the panels breaking away is still etched in my mind as a result of this seminar. I have at times throughout my life seen how this can be relevant to so many things in life, and right now I share it in relation to our shadow nature.
What can seem like a relatively harmless aspect of our nature can often bring us to our knees if we don't pay attention, but being brought to our knees is part of what he have come to experience. Throughout our life we are provided with glimpses of our shadows so that we may address them with compassion. People will warn us, whether verbally or through a mirror that they provide for us, or we will end up in situations where we have a choice on how to deal with it. As we work through the Gene Keys the shadows become more subtle, calling us to listen in deeply.
"Let us taunt it, it may become so cross that it will make a mistake."
One reaction is to judge ourselves for it, or others who we see that unclaimed part of ourselves in. We force it back into the shadows where it hides until another such opportunity comes up in life where we can bring it to the light. If we hadn't picked up the lesson the first time the next time the message can come in very loudly. Of course we need to be gentle with ourselves when we realise we have been doing this all along. You are not alone, I have done it, you have done it, most humans have.
Shadows within us dissolve when they are heard. Beneath your anger is a need. Beneath your guilt is often a misconception. Beneath your shame is a the voice calling you to recognise your divine nature. Humour can be a very effective way of dealing with our shadows, not to laugh at them, but to laugh with them.
"Run away, run away, run away."
This is another common response to the shadow in our world today. We run away from it, or try to escape it. Try as we might that shadow keeps catching up with us the moment we step into the light. Shadows only show up in the presence of light. And so when they show up, call upon all the courage you have to face it. Allow yourself to see it in yourself, come to accept it, and when ready you can really embrace it in yourself.
The philosophies of the great yoga masters and the Gene Keys helped me to see that it is only through the shadow that we step into our gifts. The shadows are simply specific Gene Keys operating at a lower frequency. As we honour and respect these lower frequencies we find ourselves moving up in frequency to the gift and even siddhic levels of consciousness.
What is your Killer Bunny?
You need not fear it, it comes bearing gifts, for you and everyone you meet along the way. Through meditation you may become aware of it. Through the Gene Keys you may see it and will have an idea of the gift that is seeking to emerge through you. Your first step could be to get your Free Hologenetic Profile, then the fool's journey begins. And it is the fool because we have to be willing to make mistakes, to laugh along the journey, and to find the delight within all of this experience.
Monty Python remind me that even the darker aspects of our nature can be met with a sense of humour :) Even using this video to demonstrate my point has resulted in me moving towards a more serious nature. That's ok though, I accept this side of myself, knowing that it will help me step more fully into delight.
