This is a beautiful exquisite sharing of the simplicity of being free now. I love it! Read a little every day and your life will transform for the better. You are always already free. You may want to notice that, and you will if you go on holiday with Sal. - Tom Thompson, The Awakened Heart Center for Conscious Living
Blown Wide Open
A Collection of Holidays
A Holiday is being blown wide open, knowing who you are, being who you are. It is both the goal of freedom and the way of liberating your mind from fear, doubt, suffering, delusion and seeking.
It is the goal, in that, a Holiday reveals the truth that freedom is your natural human condition, here and now.
And it is the way in that, continuing to be on Holiday resolves the tendencies that cause suffering and doubt, and brings an end to seeking, anything.

Sal's first book guides you step by step to awakening. There are numerous books that talk about spiritual awakening and enlightenment. And while reading any of them, you may be inspired, and you may be impressed with the wisdom of the author, but you don’t awaken. You just add more concepts and beliefs to your mind about what enlightenment is, and this keeps you seeking for answers and resolution.
Liberation IS, The End of the Spiritual Path is different. It is intended as a final push for those who are ready to be finished seeking. Through inquiries and experiments, you are guided to recognize your free essential being, and what is revealed in that recognition is that you are whole and complete, lacking nothing, exactly as you are now. When this is clearly seen and becomes doubtless, seeking ends naturally, by itself.
I don't think I can thank you enough for your clarity and relentless pointing in Liberation Is & The Way of Freedom. After years of seeking, I'm finally done, in fact, I'm gone completely and this stark awareness just shines and shines and shines. The whole thing seems like a cosmic joke, that I could have spent so much money and time buying books and attending retreats and thinking I was so special. HAHAHA, what a fucking relief to be No-Thing and Now-Here (as was always the case, but just overlooked.) I have boxed up all of the spiritual books (an entire bookcase full) that I've bought over the years and am mailing them off to a retreat center that I once attended; although in all honesty I considered using them as fire starter and only sending your two books instead - LOL. I won't be attending an intensive or joining your online zoom meetings simply because it's not necessary. You are a true master, I'm headless now and appreciate your wisdom and guidance and am content to be what arises each moment. With endless gratitude, thank you again!!
I just finished the book, re-reading some parts several times. I’m stunned at what just happened. I’m finished seeking. It’s so simple. Thoughts come and go and I’m just aware nothing and I’m happy to be nothing all day, what a relief. It’s as if suddenly I just accepted what you were saying and everything just changed. I feel at peace. Thank you.
I'm done. I was, after reading the first few chapters of your book. I have always been this. Whole. Complete. Free. Untouched. Unchanging. Pure. Timeless. Now. All I can say, is a simple Thank you.

In this follow up to Liberation IS, The End of the Spiritual Path, Salvadore speaks with people he has worked with intensively over the last several years to clear up any remaining questions and doubts. Liberations IS helped people recognize their free essential being. The Way of Freedom will help make that recognition doubtless.
The light in enlightenment is knowing.
Knowing is both the goal and the way.
In knowing, you are revealed.
Self-effulgent, or self-knowing,
this is your essential being here, now and always.
In continuing knowing, mind becomes free of doubt.
The way of freedom is to be free.
Sal, after listening to your videos and being blown away by the simplicity and clarity of your sharing, I bought your book. The value is not just in the words and insights you share, but in the structure of the sharing. With every question, you encourage real looking at what is actually true right now. This is the one habit that is the natural action that follows the intention for freedom when it is present. There are so many teachers out there adding way too much to the message and thereby clouding over the truth.....but not with your book ! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Sal. To say that your work has made a tremendous impact would be a huge understatement. I highly recommend your beautiful book as a powerful clarification of what it means to be free. Seeing what is already true does something to the incessant scrambling to look in the mind for answers. That is gone.

Don't hesitate to buy this book - if you think 'Liberation IS' is great ( and it is! ), this book is the 'crowning glory'!
— Richard Fairley
Your two books are my favorites ever. My copies are so underlined, I just got second copies of both! So beautiful to read! Makes everything so simple! Thank you for the beautiful teachings!

I loved the meeting yesterday. Just want to let you know that although I don't always feel the need to be there at this point, I still start off almost every day by immersing myself in The Way of Freedom. There is always something there that speaks perfectly to whatever situation happens to be arising; and it is always an inspiration for the day. Every time I dip in there is something striking, a new insight —even if I've read that sentence or paragraph many times before. Your "way" continues to be the clearest, simplest expression of IT, or the Nothing that IT is. Of course there are no words ... I have the new book and will "use" it in the same way. But I must say TWOF speaks to me so deeply.
