These people had experiences of being moved by forces larger than themselves to enjoin peak experiences. Maslow has much more to offer in his books: The Hierarchy of Needs: A Theory of Human Motivation (1943). If instead, the two people are in their Adult Ego state, their feeling towards each other are not filled with disruptive emotions.
The idea of cross transactions can be extended to the seven Chakra states of one of the Maslow hierarchal states.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs starts at the basic physiological needs we need just to stay alive.
They have biological needs for physical equilibrium (homeostasis).They had a sense of what was true beyond their culture, and were highly resistant to enculturalization and thus enjoyed being themselves and did not worried about fitting in. ================================================================================= Some Thoughts About Maslow Modification of Maslow's Hierarchy In the comparison table earlier presented, the 7th Chakra, the Crown Chakra does not have any correspondence in Maslow's Hierarchy.Their humor was never a threat, and they often were the brunt of their own jokes. In strongly spiritual and religious people, this is a very important need. Perhaps we could add a 6th level beyond Self Actualization and call it "Spiritual." A Modified Maslow Hierarchy In the chart below we compare Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with the Seven Chakras from Eastern Psychology and tradition and with the three ego of states of Transactional Analysis (TA) created by Eric Berne. Its main function is to show that there is a correspondence between levels in the Maslow's Hierarchy and the different Chakras and TA ego states.This level is more likely to be found in children as they have a greater need to feel safe.Those who worry about small things, such as drinking out of plastic glasses have strong security needs.
