And as paradoxical as it may sound, there's also nothing that has you keep transformation longer, than giving it away (that's vintage Erhard).
Notice I said "This is the realm in which a transformed life is lived", not "This is the realm in which a better life is lived.".
Listen: a transformed life isn't a better life. It's not like I had my life, and then something happened and I got transformation, and now I have a better life. In fact anyone claiming they have a better life as a result of getting transformation, is a classic example of being unclear on the concept.
No, getting transformation isn't getting a better life: getting transformation is getting Life (arguably, whatever you had before transformation, was your version of life ... but not Life itself). And it's not static: it's always ongoing, always urgent, always impelling. To put the transformation you got back then, into a silver box instead of always being open newly to ongoing transformed possibilities, is what it is to turn yesterday's transformation into today's ego trip.
