Biological Boddhisattvas

If not for a virus, none of us would ever be born.

In 2000, a team of Boston scientists discovered a peculiar gene in the human genome. It encoded a protein made only by cells in the placenta. They called it syncytin.

The cells that made syncytin were located only where the placenta made contact with the uterus. They fuse together to create a single cellular layer, called the syncytiotrophoblast, which is essential to a fetus for drawing nutrients from its mother. The scientists discovered that in order to fuse together, the cells must first make syncytin.*

If something is created inside of something else. Similar to how a child is created within a Human Womb, there must be something that communicates with the inside of the mother’s body, in order to signal the mother’s body telling it not to attack or consume the child as it is developing. We know that there are many Viruses present within mammalian DNA that have provided various adaptations, and advantages in the evolutionary development of the Human Species. What if it is a similar Virus has been causing many of the various destructive actions and aspects of the Psyche. Imagine if the consciousness inside of a child, confused about its position within a mother’s womb began to attack the mother?

We can imagine that the first stages of this cosmic child’s growth would be very much like nature develops all cellular life like a human child within the womb of its mother. Just like any creation the child’s body would begin to build it self out of the energy and nutrients that the programing codes within the DNA are asking from Umbilical Cord.

After an incalculable amount of reactions of the original elements of creation. More and more complex life would develop. Planets, Stars, Nebulas, Galaxies and beyond. As life became more and more complex it would also increase in intelligence and awareness. Similar to the way in which single celled life has evolved into plants, animals, and humans. If we tune into the collective organism. We as humans are more complex and intelligent in many ways then the singular cells within our body. In the same way, the planets, stars and galaxies are vast intelligent beings, we as humans are cells within the body of this planet, the solar system the spiraling DNA of a vast intelligent being. Just as we as humans have a duty to the life our bodies to continue in our evolution so that they can continue theirs, these beings too continue in their evolution, their experiences and ours being intimately as entangled and coherent as us with the cells in our bodies.

Our body is in constant communication with us if we listen is it not? Muscles get sore when they are over-worked. Our stomach sends signals to our brain to eat. We also communicate with our body as well. We send commands to move our arms and legs. And so on. So how is it that these more advanced beings are in communication with their cells, their organs, their arms and legs?

Our genes are Bodhisattvas programmed to serve the whole until we have reached perfection

Those desiring speedily to be

A refuge for themselves and others

Should make the interchange of “I” and “other,”

And thus embrace a sacred mystery.


What is a Bodhisattva?

The way and the vows of the Bodhisattva are considered the highest of all vehicles in Mahayana Buddhism. There are many slight variations on the principle vow of the Bodhisattva, but the essence is to refrain from leaving the cycle of birth and death completely until all beings reach enlightenment.

Like the great earth and the other elements,

Enduring as the sky itself endures,

For the boundless multitude of living beings,

May I be the ground and vessel of their life.

Thus, for every single thing that lives,

In number like the boundless reaches of the sky,

May I be their sustenance and nourishment

Until they pass beyond the bounds of suffering.

– Shantideva

We begin in this world as cellular life, testing, responding and adapting to our environment, orienting and building ourselves, and maintaining our health by constantly challenging our environment to come in line with our higher principles.

Though things can be quite chaotic as we emerge from the primordial soup of our mother’s womb, it is important to know that your soul– everything that is you–your being, is built and guided by the infinite life force. We become consciously aware of these guiding life force energies once we build our soul’s vehicle integrity.  The energies that you are receiving, from the environment, relationships, your own internal perception, are all this life force and are in constant communication with you, delivering information with infinite potentials to be reordered.  Your ‘vehicle’- the form–the body–all your energies– is built through your responses; how you reorder the energy… Your transmutation determines your frequency/structure (integrity) and it takes time(consciousness) and experience to build.

This is the activation of our internal compass, the opening of our third eye, the writing in of our quantum ‘junk’ DNA into our cosmic body, the reintegration of our soul with our own Source, our infinite creative force.

We have certain evolutionary traits that have been passed down through our DNA, but the collective organism is all interconnected through the Human Genome, it is always in communication with all life. This communication happens through our thoughts, feelings, emotions, what we eat, our body waste that goes into the ground, all of which is energy. These things are always sending signals to our environment. Our DNA as a whole is a vast interconnected network, that we know is communicating, even on down to the quantum level. This intelligence is looking to evolve, and to be evolved. This is the reason why our parents decided to procreate,so that life could become more diverse by bringing together their two genetic lines. This happened to resolve and overcome the genetic weakness present within each of their lines. Just like the pheromones that interacted to start the initial attraction that brought our parents together, the interactions between all human beings, plants and animals, is continually communicating with the whole, to help engineer the interactions that will allow life to advance and continue.

This is the essence of the innovation of the 3rd Gene Key of which the shadow is Chaos, the Gift is Innovation, and the Siddhi or perfect essence,  is Innocence. The great cosmic joke, is that all three of these are always present, it’s just a matter of how and what we are focusing on, and even the focus that is out of alignment with the perfection only exists as a code to evolve the collective into a more advanced evolutionary state.

As this new collective multicellular organism begins to emerge, which has been given many names, the Solar Body, Soma Helikon, Christos, The Soul and so on, we see there are codes within the genetics of humanity that are interconnected with the networks of the planet, and also the entire cosmos. We know through scientific studies now that just like the many systems of the human body that are always triggering and communicating with one another via a network of neurotransmitters, particularly the Serotonin network, the earth itself has a very similar network of serotonin which it uses to communicate across the various eco systems. Plants have been found to have the receptors, just like humans and animals. This is how we know that all of life is always in communication with us.

When our body is working properly and our psyche is in alignment with nature’s patterns, i.e. phi/golden mean/Krystal Spiral, we can align ourselves with the blueprints of the DNA of the collective body that is our Solar System.

Within the last 500 years, specifically when Earth was displaced from being the center of the Universe(Copernicus) and the Self being displaced and handed over to the subconscious(Freud), the connection between higher forms of spirituality and physical science has increasingly separated, leading to a disenchanted overly objectified seemingly meaningless reality.  It is necessary for the evolution of our species to bridge this gap, reconnecting with the whole, restoring our purpose and enchantment.

Religion has displaced personal power and purpose of the individual over to external gods and demons.  We know that both science and spirituality have great truths and need to be entered into from the interconnected angle- the angle of Universal Truth.  We can explore and grow our understanding of existence with several tools/languages that are available to each and every one of us.  Through symbolism, archetypes, patterns etc we can tap into the morphogenetic fields of the holographic universe.  Since everything is in communication with us, we can learn how to comprehend it.

What does it really mean to say that our genes are Bodhisattvas?  Think of the planets as memory complexes of vast evolutionary intelligence(DNA) that make up the greater body of the Solar system. The Solar system is a memory complex of an even more vastly enlightened spiritual ‘being’ known as a Galaxy.  Similar to the Devas of the Hindu tradition and the Bodhisattvas of the Buddhist tradition, on the internal planes, these beings can be experienced much differently as forms or intelligences that sometimes even seem to take human-like forms. That is because we literally are inside of them. Just in the same way cells are inside of our body.

Let’s imagine for a moment the evolution of life. We know our universe is a very large, complex and intelligent system. Lets face it, for humans to have intelligence, we must have similarly been birthed by something with an even greater intelligence. So if we look at the stages of evolutionary growth of humanity we can look at our earth as an even more evolved and intelligent organism.

So how would these very spiritually advanced ‘beings’, that are always striving for the greatest and highest perfection, best serve all of life to teach them to also reach enlightenment and be free from suffering? They would most likely continue on their journey, basking other life forms in their warm glow like the sun, or serve as a stable foundation for us to walk and grow on like the earth. The ‘Beings’ are in service by being the light, the elements and substances that we are made of.

True selflessness however is not giving without receiving.  While we can agree that giving without the expectation of receiving is freeing ourselves from suffering, this does not mean giving until one is not able to give, drained by parasitic activities. For any evolved being knows, that if it is to be of the greatest service, it must be able to survive so that it may continue in its journey of growth and perfection as well. This path of evolutionary growth is a fractal spiral, which is eternal.
