approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of David's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way David Bohm comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner David Bohm - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner David Bohm" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know David a little better. This page describes the disguise Bohm wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere David Bohm is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact David tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Bohm's way of dealing with problems.
David Bohm may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Bohm's emotional balance and well-being.
David Bohm is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child David Bohm probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Bohm's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Bohm, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Bohm's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Bohm will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. David Bohm overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Bohm's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach David through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Bohm's more rational friends. David Bohm certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and David Bohm has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables David Bohm to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because David Bohm likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Bohm may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Bohm's challenge.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, David Bohm has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, David Bohm often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
David has good organizing ability and he knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in team-work and adept in negotiating, he can lead successful business meetings. David Bohm can easily obtain all the information he needs in order to make the best deal.
