Every aspect of “living” is a present-continuous process. For example: breathing, heart-beat, sleeping, eating food etc. In order live, one has to be breathing. It doesnt matter if one has been breathing for the last 10 years – if one isnt breathing right now, he is dead!
Living a transformed life is just like that. One has to distinguish his/her being present, slipping into bad-faith (or running a racket), choosing “what-is”, getting present to his/her strong-suits and act, being in integrity and so on – every moment and all the time in order to be transformed. It doesn’t matter if one has been distinguishing all of that for the last 10 years – if one isn’t doing it right now, he is not transformed.
