spiritual attainment is greed or a form of ego desire

"The first thing to be understood is that the very word "attainment" 
 is nonspiritual. It is part of your greed. The idea to attain is very worldly. 
Whether you want to attain prestige, power, wealth, or God or nirvana 
does not make any difference. The desire to attain is worldly; it is materialistic.
The spiritual revolution happens only when you drop this greed,
when you drop the very idea of becoming. You are that. You are already that,
 so then don't hanker for attainment. You have never been anything else
 other than that which you are trying to attain.
God is within you this very moment - healthy and kicking.
Because God is not something separate from you or from life.
But your greed has been a problem; and because of your greed,
exploiters have existed who go on showing you ways how to attain."
