True salvation is a state of freedom … from all wanting, needing, grasping, and clinging … and above all from past and future as a psychological need. … Your mind is telling you that you cannot get there from here. Something needs to happen, or you need to become this or that before you can be free and fulfilled … but the truth is that here and now is the only point from where you can get there. You “get” there by realizing that you are there already. You find God the moment you realize that you don’t need to seek God. So there is no only way to salvation: Any condition can be used, but no particular condition is needed. However, there is only one point of access: the Now. … There is nothing you can ever do or attain that will get you closer to salvation than it is at this moment.
