Dzogchen

"The perspective of Dzogchen is always that we are all enlightened from beginninglessness. Because of this, inspiration is possible. Inspiration is the power of the enlightened state to make itself known: to itself, through itself, and of itself."

Nyi'mèd

"It is actually not possible to practice nyi'mèd - at a certain stage of practice nyi'mèd simply happens. It happens when we find ourselves moving without design between the states of shi-nè and lha-tong."
