You will notice that page 2  includes symptoms that psychologist/researcher Abraham Maslow called “meta-pathologies.”

These are spiritual/existential ailments that can afflict self-transcenders whose life circumstances, environment, or personal psychology may be holding them back from fully experiencing self-transcendence.

Remember: Self-transcenders want more from life and are not content until they find that mysterious “something.” They are driven to experience life more transcendentally than their peers or environment are likely to support.

Many self-transcenders report that one or more of the meta-pathologies will come into their lives as a signal that it’s time to learn and grow, that a breakthrough is needed, or that a new experience of self-transcendence is right over the horizon.

Note: If you are truly suffering with one or more meta-pathologies, you may want to seek the advice of a qualified counselor who understands the nature and possible origin of this symptoms. Seeking counseling doesn’t mean you’re sick. In fact, it probably means that you’re on the cusp of greater psychological health. A worthy goal, no matter where you are on the personal growth journey.
