“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”
William James

Abraham Maslow On Integrity, Spiritual Growth and Self-Actualization
Characteristics of the Self-Actualized Person:
Philosophical Sense of Humor

Another aspect or characteristic of Self-actualizers are their philosophical sense of humor. Self-actualizing people tend to take pleasure in humor. They enjoy laughing and like to joke, but not at the expense of others. They do not appreciate humor in putting down others. They are able to poke fun at themselves, but not in a negative way. Their humor is used to inform, teach, and point out ambiguities. It is often difficult to retell the joke of self-actualized person; one must be there to grasp the implication.

William James (1842-1910), referred to as the father of modern psychology, was one of the most influential pioneer theorists in psychology. James thought of psychology as a division of biology, and he argued that it should study adaptation. He believed utility is one of the most valid indices of value, and talked about the relevance of investigating the role of consciousness, the nature and effect of emotions, and the usefulness of habits and instincts.

Divine Mother Aspect. InnerWonders

Love is the Law of life. To love is to fulfil the Law. And to fulfil the law means eternal peace and ever lasting happiness. This world has come out of love. It exists in love. Love is the motive-power of the universe.

Love is life. Love is joy. Love is warmth. Love is the golden tie which binds heart to heart, soul to soul. Love is constructive and creative. Love binds and builds. Love is the principle of regeneration. Love is an actual substance you can use with confidence.

Love is a positive, concrete thing. He who applies the law of love with scientific precision can work wonders. The law of love is a far greater science than any modern science. The law of love prevails among saints and good men.
