Description 42 EDWIN B. FIRMAGE what is "outside us." Everything that is outside us can become enemy, danger, fear and death. The light dawns with the experience that this entire "outward" world is not only an object of our perception but at the same time the creation of our soul, with the transformation of all outward into inward things, of the world into the self.69 E. The Schools Why stand we here trembling around Calling on God for help and not ourselves, in whom God dwells Stretching a hand to save the falling Man? William Blake70 The inward journey of religious mysticism should no longer be considered by psychology as one or another form of neurosis, but rather an explanation in religious language of psychological and spiritual phenomena at the core of human experience. Central to psychology is an evolving view of human nature responsive to contemporary need. In dialectic relationship as well with earlier psychoanalytic and be-havioristic schools, humanistic psychology, typified by the writing of Abraham Maslow,71 helped us better understand our enormous human potential for growth and for change. Toward the end of his life, Maslow concluded: "I consider the Humanistic, Third Force Psychology to be transitional, a preparation for a still "higher" Fourth psychology, transpersonal, transhuman, centered in the cosmos rather than in human needs and interest, going beyond humanness, identity, self-actualization and the like."72 Here, our identification with each other and with all life occurs. It is a shocking thing that we teach Driver's Education before entrusting young people with a car and yet send them into marriage and life without teaching them basic principles of the relatively new 69 H. Hesse, If the War Goes On 54 (R. Manheim trans.) (Pan Books Ltd.: 1974). 70 Jerusalem, in G. Keynes, ed., The Complete Writings of William Blake 672 (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1974). 71 A. Maslow, Toward a Psychology of Being (2d ed.) (New York: Von Nostrand Rhein-hold, 1968). 72 As quoted in R. Walsh & F. Vaughan (eds.), Beyond Ego 19-20 (Los Angeles: Jeremy Tarch-er, Inc., 1980).
