THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

Most people pursue physical pleasures or various forms of psychological gratification because they believe that those things will make them happy or free them from a feeling of fear or lack.Happiness may be perceived as a heightened sense of aliveness attained through physical pleasure , or a more secure and more complete bsense of self attained through some form of pyschological gratification. This is the search for salvation from a state of unsatisfactoriness or insufficiency. Invariably, any satisfaction that they obtain is short-lived, so the condition of satisfaction or fulfillment is usually projected once again onto an imaginary point away from the here and now. “When I obtain this or that-then I will be okay” This is the unconscious mind-set that creates the illusion of salvation in the future.
True salvation is fulfillment, peace, life in all its fullness. It is to be who you are ,to feel within you the good that has no opposite, the joy of Being hat depends on nothing outside itself. It is felt not as a passing expeience but as an abiding presence. In theistic language , it is “to know God”-not as something outside you but as your own innermost essence.True salvation is to know yourself as an inseparable part of the timeless and the formless One Life from which all that eists derives its being.
True salvation is a state of freedom -from fear,from suffering,from perceived state of lack and insufficiency and therefore from all wanting,needing,grasping,and clinging.It is freedom from compulsive thinking, from negativity, 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 will need to become this or that before you can become free and fulfilled. It is saying in fact that you need time–that you need to find,sort out, do, achieve,acquire,become or understand something before you can be free or complete.
The truth is that here and now is the only point from where you can get there. You “get” there by realizing you are there already. You find God the moment that you realize you don’t need to seek God.So there is no only way to salvation: Any codition can be used ,but no particular condition is needed. However there is only one point of access: The NOW. There can be no salvation away from this moment. ou are lonely and without a partner? Enter the now from there. ou are in a relationship? Enter the now from there.
There is nothing you can ever do or attain that will get you closer to salvation than it is at this moment.This may be hard to grasp for a mind that is conditioned to believe everything worthwhile is in the future.You cannot do this in the future. You do it Now or not at all.
