Details

A self-actualizer is a person who is living creatively and fully using his or her potentials. What a man can do, he must do. It refers to the desire for self-fulfillment, namely, to the tendency to become actualized in what he is potentially.

In summary, self-actualizers feel finally themselves, safe, not anxious, accepted, loved, loving, and alive, certainly living a fulfilling life. Instead of focusing on what goes wrong with people. Human motivation is based on people seeking fulfillment and change through personal growth. Self-actualized people are those who are fulfilled and doing all they are capable of. It refers to the person’s desire for self-fulfillment, namely, to the tendency to become actualized in what he is potentially. "The specific form that these needs will take will of course vary greatly from person to person. Self-actualization can be reached by any particular individual. No matter who you are, you can achieve self-actualization. These will be the description of your life:

• Reality-centered: Differentiating between fake and real, dishonesty and truth.

• Means focused: Not seeking just the end but enjoying the journey.

• Problem-centered: Focusing on solving problems not bemoaning one's troubles.

• Self-sufficient: Not needing the company of others.

• Deep relationships: Connections with others deep and meaningful.

• Autonomy: Not being driven by the deeper needs.

• Socially aloof: Not being driven by social pressures.

• Open humor: Able to laugh at themselves and life in general.

• Acceptance: Accepting self and others without judgement.

• Simplicity: Being themselves, without pretense.

• Spontaneity: Reacting as themselves without pause to worry.

• Respect: Accepting others as they are.

• Humility: Not trying to be superior to others.

• Ethical: A personal sense of right and wrong.

• Openness: Being able to see things in new ways.

• Creative: Easy identification of new ideas.

Such people are not saints and have their own imperfections, such as:

• Strong feelings of guilt about what they should or should not do, or what they had done.

• Being excessively kind even to people who may not deserve it.

• Being cold and ruthless when they felt something needed doing.

While many of us seek self-actualization, there are people for who the lower needs are less important and who live their lives in the self-actualizing state. Transformation is the person exploring themselves and becoming what they are capable of becoming.

If there is something greater than ourselves, could it be universal spiritual truths? Could this be called Wisdom or Spiritual Truths? Is this universal and beyond time?
