Khyil-khor

"The personalities of the khandros, or wisdom sisters, are the inner energy of everything it is possible for us to feel. This is what we are, or what we could become. Our inner elements are the khyil-khor of the khandros - the iridescent matrix of being. There is no more profound khyil-khor than who or what we are in our world."

Awareness

"Awareness is the uncontrived, unattached recognition of the experience of movement - the movement of the arising and dissolving of thoughts in the continuum of Mind, the appearance and disappearance of phenomena in the vastness of intrinsic space. There is only the sheer exquisiteness of this movement. This is what we actually are."

Being

"Being is not attached to reference points. Being does not rely for its existence on any style of perceptual cross-referencing. Trying to pin-point being is like attempting to suspend time and movement - it is not possible, so we might as well simply be."

Enlightenment

"Every thought, every feeling, every sensation or action is enlightenment; but we do not realise it ... We are never separated from it. There is no need to look for enlightenment in any other place than where we are. It is there, unrecognised, in every moment."
