We are the dance of existence and non-existence

"We are the dance of existence and non-existence. Unless we know this - Tantra is impossible. But, whether we understand it or not - Tantra is continually performing itself; it is what is happening."

The dance of the khandros and pawos

"Our emotions and our personal environment are the dance of the khandros and pawos. To know reality as the dance of the khandros and pawos is to fall in love with them. To fall in love with them is to discover our beginningless enlightenment in the endless empty nature of their dance."

Glimpses

"There is no sudden breakthrough that remains forever - there are only sudden glimpses. But these glimpses encourage us to see more. And so, gradually, we develop the ability to integrate these experiences of unconditioned being into our lives."

Indivisibility

"The elements are always equal in their essential pure state. It is not possible to divide the elements, because they are completely interdependent; they are indivisible. We only talk about them as if they were separate, in order to understand something about enlightenment and unenlightenment. As if enlightenment and unenlightenment were two different things."
