This discovery of shi-nè

"The discovery of shi-nè confronts us with the fact that our fear of nonexistence is both the driving force of duality and the sparkling though of our beginningless enlightenment."

Liberation

"The belief that liberation requires us to discover another concrete realm where everything is perfect will not help us discover the perfection of where we are. The experience of pure happiness and pleasure is available to us in this life."

Wonderful dancing energy

"Khyil-khor is a wonderful dancing energy. It is not possible to exclude anyone from your khyil-khor or to be excluded from anyone else's. Even if someone dislikes you, you remain within their field of energy. Even if they despise you, it would make no difference. In fact if someone feels very strong negative feelings towards you, you would figure even more potently in their field of energy."

The five khandros

"The five internal energy fields of the elements are known as the five khandros; the sky-goers. The magical appearance of the khandros reflect the spatial qualities of the elements. The personalities of the the khandros, are the inner energy of everything it is possible to feel. They are the magical prism of endless inter-connectedness. 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 actually are in our world."
