Transforming-self = the highest stage of conscious evolution, which is far more reflective in Eastern Cultures, is where a person becomes INTERDEPENDENT. They no longer try to fight silent battles. They don’t attempt willpower to change their life. They recognize the importance of context and connection. They have their own goals, and views. But they can also see beyond their own mental frame and compare it with other mental frameworks, allowing them to continually weed-out unhealthy and limiting beliefs. Additionally, at this stage, a person has embraced vulnerability and collaboration — connection — so they are constantly doing work with other people where the whole becomes fundamentally different and better than the sum of it’s parts. According to Kegan, only this stage of conscious evolution is conducive to faith, because the actor trusts and expects that the best outcomes will come about, all the while not being obsessed or tied to a certain outcome.
