Those who see themselves in all and all in them help others,
through spiritual osmosis, to
realize the Self themselves.
- Katha Upanishad, 2:8
The scriptures tell us that through self-effort, we can become enlightened and liberated in this lifetime. They also tell us that it is only through accepting what the Guru has to offer that this can occur. Enlightenment is a real thing, it can be "attained" by determined individuals, and we can help you "get there".

If you would allow it, I would be delighted to share one of the secrets of the lineage of the Siddha yogis to which I belong. Shaktipat, literally the descent of Shakti/Grace, awakens the latent spiritual potential of the individual and causes its unfoldment at an exponential rate. Much sought-after mystical experiences, as well as systemized breath techniques, kriyas, etc., all happen automatically as the seeker's sadhana draws the Grace that triggers this spontaneous awakening.
