challenges and difficulties
Cook doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Dane is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
Cook is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Dane Cook does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Dane Cook better than being with groups of his own peers.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Dane's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Dane Cook to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Cook in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Dane Cook would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Not very adaptable, Dane Cook tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Dane should try to keep his temper under control. He may have to work extremely hard and may have a lot of responsibilities that he cannot let go.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dane Cook instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Dane Cook needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dane Cook's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Cook's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Cook's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Cook's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Cook's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Dane Cook needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Cook's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Dane Cook to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Dane Cook has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Some of his relationships tend to be a bit peculiar and Dane should beware of becoming involved with bad company. Dane Cook could be easily lured by others to take part in dubious or underhanded schemes.
