Wise Words: On Self-Actualization


Erik Erikson on self-awareness and a resulting compassion. Made me think of Brennan Manning's words in "Abba's Child":

Experience has taught me that I connect best with others when I connect with the core of myself. When I allow God to liberate me from unhealthy dependence on people, I listen more attentively, love more unselfishly, and am more compassionate and playful. I take myself less seriously, become aware that the breath of the Father is on my face.
