35th Gene Key – the hungry grasshopper

On the 2nd of June, our Sun began shining its light through the lens of the 35th Gene Key and moved into the 45th Gene Key on the 7th of June.

hunger – adventure – boundlessness

Here within this very special codon in our DNA we discover the driving fuel behind the expansion of our humanity. A fuel that has driven our society to explore the vast expanses of our planet, to stretch our imaginations to the skies and beyond.

A fascinating way to explore this Gene Key is through the embodiment of the Grasshopper, the Dream Arc insect connected to the 35th Shadow nature of Hunger.

Grasshoppers tend to live solitary lifestyles. Content to ponder around their natural environment, feeding and living. It is only when an abundance of resources leads to a surge in grasshopper populations that we begin to witness this external state of Hunger in action.

When a grasshopper population swells, this leads to grasshoppers bumping up against each other and stimulating their hind legs. Recent studies show that this stimulation leads to an increase of Serotonin levels in their nervous system.

This increase in Serotonin triggers changes within the grasshoppers physical appearance and behaviour. The grasshoppers transform into a swarm of locusts that go on a feeding rampage, traversing great distances and wiping out everything in their path.

It is the shadow of Hunger that drives this rampage. Hunger for a return to solitude and spaciousness underlies this evolutionary phenomenon, not just for food and drink.

For many ages, this 35th Codon in the human DNA has also been the driving force for the expansion of the human race. As one area would become crowded, this would initiate the explorers and warriors of old times to break loose from the comfort of their villages.

The overcrowding would lead to surging of serotonin, leading to a similar locust like transformation within the human condition. The hunger for expansion, abundance and spaciousness becoming stronger than the fear of the unknown.

DRIVEN BY HUNGER TO EXPLORE

The Norse Vikings, a great example of this locust like behaviour. They would set sail into the great unexplored waters to conquer new lands to bring prosperity to their kind. Yet like the locusts, this often led to a trail of destruction and suffering along the way.

Over the ages, we have seen this pattern exhibited by many cultures, from the expansion of the British Colonies to the Chinese Empires.

Today, we bare witness to the human species having successfully intermingled and conquered most untamed lands, resources lie abundantly to be taken, and yet we still bare witness to this shadow of Hunger continuing to rear its ugly head.

“WE HAVE THE KNOW-HOW TO FEED, CLOTHE AND GIVE EVERY HUMAN ON EARTH A CHANCE.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

“We have the know-how to feed, clothe, and give every human on Earth a chance.

As Buckminster Fuller would say, we live in a time where we no longer have a lack of resources, but rather we are lacking in the way that we distribute these resources.

Our economic and political landscapes rely upon the existence of lack in order to create the driving force for labour and collective creation. Unlike Locusts, who once they have discovered new lands, they return once again to their solitary quiet lives as grasshoppers, humankind has instead found ways to harness that fear driven hunger to control society.

Our world is currently going through a provocative transformation to bring a harmonic organic correction to this pathway. The old systems are not sustainable, and the more power that is centralised into the fewer hands, the more unstable that power centre becomes.

Our corporations have become like swarms of locusts, taking from the environment without consideration, to feed the induced hunger of the consumers they feed off. It is in these power centres that the interest lies to maintain this hunger and distraction, to remain in power.

These wild adventures were a part of our natural evolution, yet today, they are perpetuated out of addiction rather than inspiration and love. It no longer serves the family or village unit, but rather has enslaved them to the artificial dream.

The good news, is that this is all right on schedule, and we are living through one of the greatest moments in our history. Humanity is on the verge of transforming out of this locust like phase and back into the more calm and peaceful nature of the grasshopper.

The challenge? To break the addiction to serotonin boosting activity, chasing hits from always being busy, creating drama, seeking distraction through entertainment, drugs, sex and fantasy.

INVITING ADVENTURE INTO LIFE

The Gift of Adventure that this 35th Gene Key invites into your life, is not an external pursuit, but rather an inner journey to bridging the old ways into the new that are coming.

If we are to experience this higher nature of Adventure, then first we must harness this shadow of Hunger to create time and space within our every day to go inwards. To allow room for a contemplative lifestyle. Even if one is very active outwardly, it is still possible to remain a deeply contemplative being and move slowly inwardly.

Collectively we are preparing for this great leap. Gathering our resources, redefining for each of us alone and collectively, what is actually required to satiate the hunger and how to find new ways of distribution that incentivise heart centred action rather than mind driven obsessions.

On the individual level, this shadow of Hunger often manifests as either the hum drum frequency of boredom with the seemingly mundane everyday life, or as hectic manic pursuit of activity and movement.  

This is the aspect that each of us have a special opportunity to transform in our own everyday lives. To not be a victim of hunger, but rather a willing participant in the adventure of the human experience.

For over 15 years, I have been on a journey to find a way to balance my life with prosperity and service. Since my son was born in 2010, this brought my feet to the ground with a thud!

Over the years, thanks to the support of the Gene Keys, I started to become aware of my Peter Pan Syndrome, a hunger for idealism. This hunger drove me for my first 30 years, to travel extensively searching for my dreams, making more friends than I could ever truly honour, working multiple jobs simultaneously and appearing ADHD to many.

I discovered that I was terrified of the boredom that everyday life threatened me with through the impressions of my education and society.

The need for self-discipline and a new craving for realism began to arise in me. I became hungry for it. Over the years, I was driven by this craving, to bring a new sense of stability to my family. I hustled my way, trying to find ways to blend my passion for my work with the reality of the world I lived in and still be able to pay the rent, providing for my young boy.

This hunger served its purpose in getting me to move out of my comfort zone, break down my old outdated belief systems, and create a stable home for myself and my loved ones. It was only then, when I had finally created what I perceived as a safe space, that I began to notice the addiction of Hunger was still pushing me.

I spent many hours of every day trying to find new ways to get my work out and run a healthy business. Without a budget for professionals, I found myself studying and experimenting with websites, marketing, taking on multiple side hustles and more.

My ambassador journey

“THIS IS THE GREAT ADVENTURE THAT YOU TAKE AS THE 35TH GIFT ARISES IN YOUR INNER BEING – YOU ENTER A PROCESS OF ALCHEMICAL CO-CREATION WITHIN YOUR OWN BODY. – RICHARD RUDD, 35TH GENE KEY

Ironically, I was in the best condition of my life, yet found myself in constant states of stress and anxiety. Although at the time I was not always aware of it. I look back now and realise, the greatest breakthroughs occurred not because of the hustle I had put in, but rather through the synchronicity that would arise when I made space for it!

Over the last few years, my inner state has transformed greatly. Where I once was seeking outwards for validation and security, this new world I had created through the transformation of my belief systems, created a new invitation to become more of a hermit.

In 2020, when the covid psychosis began, it was a blessing in disguise for many of us. Creating forced isolation, it also helped break many of the addictions to the 24/7 working life. For the first time, many experienced what it was like to not go to work every day. To have time and space to explore who they truly are and what they truly want in life.

I was fortunate to live up in the Perth Hills, on property surrounded by natural bush land and away from the mainstream narrative underway. I found my solace in chopping wood, taking care of the family and going deeper into exploring my own inner being and sense of self then ever before.

I discovered the true nature of the Gift of Adventure. It is the new stage of expansion our collective is entering, which requires taking the external focus and channeling that seeker energy inwards.

It is a delicate yet potent shift in perspective, that each of us must first take before we can experience it on the collective level. To become hungry for a higher perspective and use that hunger as the driving force to awaken adventure in our everyday experiences.

When one truly begins to open up their inner worlds, the rest of the planetary distractions will pale in comparison.

The concept of boredom becomes a foreign concept. Whether you are washing the dishes, scraping paint of a wall, washing the car or paying bills, everything suddenly becomes a part of the greater adventure you incarnated for.

To truly embrace the Gift of Adventure requires a surrendering of expectation and demands for the outcome and embracing the spirit of childlike curiosity. Rather then be a victim of every twist and turn life throws your way, the challenge is to instead feel through it with wonder of where this new adventure will take you.

The power of this shift in perspective will transform your mundane life into the greatest fairy tale every told. A story inspired by your heart, written by your actions and fuelled by your highest visions.

    Oh, this is an amazing narrative on the 35th, thanks Mark. I want to say this is your best post yet!🔥 Until the next I’m sure… 😉 I remember the Dream Arc clubhouse call where I first heard you mention the grasshopper and their transformation into the locust. I have recalled it often since and truly believe nature provides the best way to understand ourselves, as is so evident in this post. Looking forward to the next. 🙏💕
