A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

Most people are unaware that in Maslow's later years he proposed Transcendence above Self-Actualization in the hierarchy of needs. I just read "The Farther Reaches of Human Nature" which highlights the difference between "merely healthy self-actualizers" and "self-actualizing transcenders." It's fascinating. Viktor Frankl (Man's Search for Meaning) also says the only way to self-actualization is through self-transcendence. You can read my Maslow summaries at Sloww(dot)co.
