Although great teachers, saints, and masters can heal people and forgive the sins of karma, they cannot save anyone. The final choice and decision must and can only be decided by the individuals for themselves. To give up one's psychological egoic state and RETURN to one's true spiritual condition is the choice each person must some day make. No one else can make it for you.
A spiritual teacher or master may give a person or student a SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE just to prove that such a state or condition does, in fact, exist. The teacher or master will give instructions on how to attain this state or condition. But only the individual can make the final choice and attempt.
Most assuredly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
-Jesus, John 3:3
Salvation is SELF salvation. Meditation-cultivation is SELF-salvation.
Meditation-cultivation does not have to be formal, i.e., one does not need candles or incense or even having to sit in one of traditional yogic postures. Just being by one's self and at peace without worldly distractions can lead to insights and possibly self-realization (i.e., God union, Satori, Nirvana, Samadhi, heaven, Tao, etc.).
"God does not abandon people; it is people who abandon God."
-Hua Ching Ni (Teacher)
It is not God who abandons his angels, it is his angels who abandon God to create their own psychological world which then creates the material world of inferior existence.
