I am indebted to Mike McConnell who contributed material for this

transformation itself to expand (as anyone who's ever invented the
possibility of being transformed can attest). Secondly, with each
expansion of transformation comes newer and newer vantage points, newer
and newer vistas, and consequently newer and newer perspectives

Newer and newer abstracts come forth. Newer and newer possibilities are

These ongoingly newer ideas, abstracts, possibilities, and intelligent

all we human beings would freely admit we have in common). Yet while

The waythe workmanifests in an individual's life after the onset of

But it's the access to (and therefore the onset of and the
sustaining of) transformation itself which is almost entirely
experiential - in four words, to transform your life is to naturally
maintain and sustain the experience of

A note about an experienced experience, and about
taking responsibility for an experience: when
asserts "experienced experience disappears" and "taking
responsibility for an experience completes it", don't debate it,
rationalize it, intellectualize it, or argue about it. Now there's
nothing wrong with debating, rationalizing, intellectualizing, or
is you won't get the value of experiencing an experience to disappear
it, or taking responsibility for an experience to complete it, through
any of those modalities. The way you get their value is by (like
Nike) just doing it ie by trying them on for size.
Consider this: what exacerbates (makes worse) and belabors any and all
upsetting experiences, is being unwilling to experience them fully.
We're thrown to try to back out of (and create blame for) upsetting
experiences, when the way to complete them fast and move on, is to
experience them fully and take responsibility for them (the only way
out, it seems, is through).
