Dictionary Definition: Kyabi

Kyabi (noun): kai-AH-bi. The philosophical, metaphysical aspect of existence. The divine order that requires interpretation and cannot be understood solely through the physical senses. In everyday language, kyabi is used to describe fate or fortune. Among the healers enciani, quilard, etc.) and scientists (volmyri, morgisti, etc.), it is used to describe the interplay between seeming chaos and perceived order that determines the course of individual lives and shapes their thinking.

Kyabi is the part of life circumstances over which individuals have no direct control -- if you like: it is the wheel of fortune, or the cards tossed onto the table by an unseen hand. Kyabi is not determined by personal choice, though humans do have personal choice that can affect and wield kyabi. Nor is kyabi blind (divine) determination (though many believe that, too, exists in the world in question). Kyabi can be influenced to a degree, though.

Part of the work of healers, in particular, is to work with individuals to help them define and understand their kyabi. The next step is to find ways to help individuals make suitable life choices so that difficult aspects of kyabi have less effect and fortunate aspects lead to personal success and gratification.

Dictionary Definition: Inglot

Inglot (noun): IN-glo. Inglot describes a psychological state, an existential experience of tumbling alone, numbed, and helpless through the gaps in the fabric of the world.

Some of the alibin and quilard are endowed with the ability to find and rescue "tumblers", that is, individuals lost in inglot.

Inglot occurs when individuals become trapped in lives that sever them from contact with positive aspects of their kyabi. There are no known cases of intentional inglot, but inglot is prevalent among those who are not grounded through stable circumstances and strong relationships.

Healing inglot requires a form of re-birthing in which the individual is integrated into circumstances and relationships that correspond with the positive aspects of her or his kyabi and match some of the individuals core talents and dreams. It is essential that the structures already exist, at least in their basic form, or else the risk of renewed isolation and a repeated experience of inglot becomes too great.

Dictionary Definition: Descabeas

Descabeas (noun): des-KA-bee-ass. The rules that underlie nature or crafts and skills.

Descabeas are methodical ways of exploring, measuring, and interpreting the world and also the term for the rules or laws that can be described as a result of those explorations, for example, mathematical equations, or the cycles of the moon. Descabeas can also be created, as in notation systems for music or rules for types of poetry, or the usually unspoken rules for successful communication that underlie social exchanges.

In an extended sense, it can also be said that individuals create personal descabeas to structure their lives. Uncovering and understanding these personal descabeas is part of the work undertaken by healers.

Dictionary Definition: Sedisot

Sedisot (noun): SE-dee-so, a solitary, silent form of contemplation and connection with the Divine; a practitioner of sedisot.

Sedisot conveys a sense of minimalism without connotations of deprivation; it is aesthetic simplicity but not poverty. Through beauty, clarity, and explicit forms and choices, practitioners of sedisot (also called sedisot) feel they make it easier for divine revelation to manifest in distinguishable ways.

Sedisot often describe their work as "anchoring divinity". In some ways they see their vocation as related to that of the anchoresses and anchorites of the Middle Ages, but in a less physically isolated way that enables them to live full and active lives on all levels. Contemporary sedisot may withdraw for periods of contemplation but usually view sedisot activity more strongly as a state of mind and emotion rather than a need for ongoing physical seclusion.

Dictionary Definition: Esspre

Esspre (noun): ES-pray. Esspre is the act of making personal gifts and talents visible (audible, etc.). It is, if you like, a form of "praying by doing" that benefits the active party and also, if relevant, those who witness the act, by offering beauty they can enjoy (as in en-joy -- to be made joyful).

The image of three dancers is located in a stylised sun, a symbol of personal energy, the rays of which decorated by glass beads and are therefore dimensional. The dancers exude composure and expression; they have gained control of their creative powers and have learned to cooperate with others to enhance effectivity. Each of the dancers benefits from group synergy while remaining an outstanding artist in her own right.

The beetle (a dung beetle) has long been seen as a symbol of transformation, renewal, and resurrection. The Egyptian scarab (dung beetle) was linked to Khepri, the god of the rising sun.

The hieroglyph for the scarab is made up of phonetics that translate as "to come into being" or "to become" or "to transform". Depending on the context, the hieroglyph translates as "form", "transformation", "happening", "mode of being" or "what has come into being", and may have existential, fictional, or metaphysical meaning.

Also significant in this image and its connotations is the idea that what is left over by one person (or context) can, no matter how humble it may appear, become the fodder for growth for another person or a new context.
