Abraham Maslow And The Hierarchy Of Needs
Abraham Maslow, the famous psychologist, had worked on a theory that linked self-actualization to spirituality and self-transcendence.
His Hierarchy Of Needs Pyramid (which was never intended to be a pyramid) familiarized us to the basic human needs like safety, belonging and self-esteem to be a foundation that paves the way for creative pursuits.

Self-Actualization is an internal struggle that one must take by leaning towards stability and our higher goals while minimizing disruption from distracting thoughts and impulses (disruptive impulsivity).
One also has to look out for oneself to not fall in the dark abyss of negativity and doubt, apart from feeling directionless or meaningless.
Self-actualization is the ultimate paradox, in which by losing everything, one gains everything.
It is the ultimate nothingness, the zero that is infinity at the same time.
There is nothing to sacrifice in the process of self-actualization, even though it feels that way. One is freed of the bondage of the ego and is able to function with their full powers in the service of others.
Self-actualized people are extraordinary and different from the rest of society. They’re confident, joyful, creative, independent, and free. These people flow with life instead of resisting or fighting against it. Above all, they bask in the phenomenal feeling of reaching their highest potential.
