The Venus sequence
It’s been more than ten years ago.
I held that dream inside for a very long time and the urge to bring it to fruition was just getting stronger over time. Since I was a child I dreamt about a beautiful wilderness, about an exquisite adventure into the unknown. Somewhere into the deep embrace of Mother Nature. The dream hasn’t had any particular form but I remember that it contained wild rivers, lakes, high mountains, caves and deep virgin forests full of animals. And whenever I imagined myself inside that dream I felt full of aliveness, energy, emotions and passion. But above all, I felt profound peace. I kept this vision within for many years and every single western, warrior or indigenous’ movie brought it about on the surface again.
But it wasn’t until I saw an amazing movie from a French director Jean-Jacques Annaud that the vision started to gain its more tangible shape. The movie is a masterpiece of direction situated into such a magnificent beauty of British Columbia’s wilderness that mesmerised me from the very beginning. It simply stirred my emotions to its depths. Perhaps that was a reason, I don’t know. From that moment I only knew that I have to go there.
Some years passed by and in the meantime, I finished my university studies and already have some experience of travelling in Europe and also living and working abroad. But at some point I found myself living in the environment that wasn’t really healthy for me, working in a job I was doing mostly to survive and being around people I didn’t share a lot of values with. Simply, doing what everyone else around does and somehow being stuck in our collective “status quo”.
Please don’t take me wrong. I cannot say I wasn’t taken care of or that my basic needs had not been fulfilled. Looking hindsight I had everything I really needed. I had a decent job, a car and enough resources to rent a house, travel and run my hobbies.
But something was missing…
It took some time and a life pause until I became fully aware that I am living life devoid of any depth, devoid of aliveness and a higher sense of meaning. Devoid of what people nowadays call “purpose”. Living life devoid of the feeling that I am alive. That seems to be the greatest tragedy of modern society. The source of most of the human suffering, at least in western society. Where emotions are still seen as something unwanted, unpredictable and dangerous. And where the slightest breath of sense, feelings and especially pain accompanying life is immediately oppressed and considered as a threat.
As Richard Rudd put it nicely in the Gene Keys: “The mass consciousness of humanity lives in denial of the ultimate shock – the fact of physical death. And in denying death it actually throttles life. Only one who has fully embraced the certainty of death is truly alive. Without the perspective of death, life loses its true sense of value, which is precisely what desensitises human beings” 
It’s becoming more and more obvious that modern society, modern (“I”) consciousness is inwardly empty. And most of us, the collective consciousness of humanity, live inside the state of this inner emptiness. Deep down, we all know this. Some of us ignore this and choose to burrow our heads in the sand, others tend to react to this misery and hardly anybody choose to face this emptiness and take over the responsibility. But those who do usually find that the emptiness is full of life at its bottom – which can easily fill the empty ‘bucket’ if we but choose to look there.
I personally found out that whatever we do or choose in our lives, in the end, the only way to “change the world” is to change it from the inside out. Which means that it’s we who have to change our perspective instead of trying to change the world.
In my experience, after a lot of trials and errors, time waste and blind paths what really helped me to authentically adjust the quality of my life experience is the teaching I came across a few years ago. It’s called The Gene Keys and it is like a modern version of the ancient Chinese I-Ching, more than 5000 years old wisdom. It’s the gentlest, easiest yet most practical way of transformation I’ve encountered so far and it is using a simple art of contemplation to invite the change into our lives. To me, the greatest revelations came from understanding why things are as they already are. Instead of trying to constantly force the change come into life.
This year I took part at one of the online events people around Gene Keys organized called “Deep Dive into genius” and it was about uncovering or rather getting aware of our own unique potential hidden inside. It’s been a very interesting and revealing experience which brought a lot of light and insights into many facets of my life experience. Be it personal, professional or relationship-based.
Very soon, the Gene Keys are opening The Venus sequence online event, which is about Love and about using our relationships to opening our hearts. It’s a 6-month journey into the depths of life, into the heart of being and aliveness. The shadow work that certainly requires a deep commitment but that can potentially bring a lot of fruits in the long-term run.
So whether you are a Gene Keys beginner, a long-time “spiritual” seeker, deeply materially based person or whoever else – and you are interested to find out what lies hidden inside your heart, then this is the best opportunity I’ve ever encountered. If you are ready for the unknown, ready for unpredictable and also tough times but you trust life above all else, then I whole-heartedly recommend this experience.
