Interviews with 13 people, over 85 years, with high scored Self-transcendence, were analyzed using a phenomenological hermeneutic method. The meaning of being consoled was interpreted to Feeling whole, an immediate experience of: being carried and embraced by God (Feeling connected to God), supported by the loving care and affection from others (Feeling connected to fellow beings and the world), being relaxed, peaceful and full of joy and experiencing hope (Being connected to self).
