Sunset (by Rudolph Z)

Self-actualizing persons’ contact with reality is simply more direct. And along with this unfiltered, unmediated directness of their contact with reality comes also a vastly heightened ability to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy, however stale those experiences may have become for others.

—Abraham Maslow (via modernshxmxn)

We must understand love; we must be able to teach it, to create it, to predict it, or else the world is lost to hostility and to suspicion.

—Abraham Maslow (via modernshxmxn)

Practically every serious description of the “authentic person” extant implies that such a person, by virtue of what they have become, assumes a new relation to their society and indeed, to society in general. She not only transcends herself in various ways; she also transcends her own culture.

—Abraham Maslow (via modernshxmxn)

(via 0ce4n-g0d)

You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood.

Borderline Personality Disorder/Classic Chinese Medicine Pattern

Diagnosis; Liver Heat, Liver attacking the Spleen, Empty Fire Harassing the Heart.

Treatment: Yi gan san

You survived by seizing every tiny drop of love you could find anywhere, and milking it, relishing it, for all it was worth. And as you grew up, you sought love, anywhere you could find it, whether it was a teacher or a coach or a friend or a friend’s parents. You sought those tiny droplets of love, basking in them when you found them. They sustained you. For all these years, you’ve lived under the illusion that somehow, you made it because you were tough enough to overpower the abuse, the hatred, the hard knocks of life. But really you made it because love is so powerful that tiny little doses of it are enough to overcome the pain of the worst things life can dish out. Toughness was a faulty coping mechanism you devised to get by. But, in reality, it has been your ability to never give up, to keep seeking love, and your resourcefulness to make that love last long enough to sustain you. That is what has gotten you by.
