According to Hugh Mackay, Wholeness is not for the “faint hearted” – it involves a special courage which Carl Rogers called “the courage to be”. He noted it is A life animated by kindness and compassion, a virtuous and even noble life, may produce inner calm, moral confidence and a deep sense of well-being – aka happiness or wholeness – Carl Rogers: Referred to “The fully functioning person” Is “psychologically free”: – 1) Ever increasing openness To emotions – accepting and not being afraid of them; 2) To live completely in the moment Without rigidity and a maximum of adaptability (Similar to the Buddhist emphasis on mindfulness); 3) A willingness to trust their own gut instincts 4) Able to express their emotions freely.
