Spiritual identity

„It is not in man’s nature to merely care about oneself.“ Victor Frankl

One essential credo I share with humanistic psychology is the proposition that we are motivated by a general need for purpose that surpasses our individuality. The more we are able to orient ourselves by meaningful and creative or behavioral values, the better and more stable we will feel. A purely egotistical or animalistic orientation, on the other hand, may well lead to psychological pain and a feeling of inner emptiness.

I am rooted in Christian tradition, both because of my personal background and my theological studies. Over the years, I have studied a multitude of spiritual paths; there are many ways to a fulfilling spirituality, and it is important to choose the one that seems consistent with oneself.
