Maslow, With Or Without the Deity?

In this article, we discover that pictures speak to us with few words said! Maslow assumes credit for developing the “Hierarchy of Needs,” which states that every human animal requires health, safety, socialization, esteem, and self-expression. This implies equality of every living creature within humanity.

In light of that, there is a divine supplement to add to the hierarchy of needs, which involves the spiritual fruit. Can we really meet the needs of humanity without love, goodwill, kindness, peace, meekness, gentleness, faith, joy, goodness, self-control, patience, and perseverance? First, we must welcome the diminishing of the primal nature of the human beast to allow the divine presence, which permeates the universe, to possess our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Then we can humanely bring care in a civil way to the people of the world.

The images below reveal humanity with and without the spiritual fruit in the human spirit. The photo on the left is fulfilling our needs with divine fruitage, the photo on the right is relating to the primal beast without the rewards of the deity.
