Van/Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan meets all the criteria of a self-actualizing person as defined by Maslow. He shows heightened ability to perceive reality, an acceptance of self, spontaneity, focus on a goal outside of himself, highly developed concentration, autonomy of thought and action, frequent transcendence of self, a love for people and a strong sense of responsibility for them, a strong sense of mission, a humility before God and a respect for others, a close circle of friends, a high degree of ethics, a good sense of humor, a high level of creativity, resistance to enculturation, normal human imperfections, a strong sense of values, and an integration of heart and mind. He is a most unique individual, quite above the average in mental and emotional health and self-actualization.
