Although he is quite tolerant, giving and forgiving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Deepak Chopra has a definite sense of fairness, balance and correct proportions, which prevent Deepak from being completely happy in an exclusively benevolent role. Deepak Chopra really wants equal and reciprocal relationships - not ones that involve being someone else's servant or caregiver. However, Deepak Chopra needs to learn how to assert what he wants and needs, for he tends to "go with the flow" or simply wait for his needs to be met. Consequently, he may feel that he is never able to achieve equality in relationships and ends up being taken advantage of. Moreover, Deepak should avoid the tendency to be evasive, indirect, and afraid to confront unpleasant issues. The honest and open relationships Chopra seeks cannot be achieved if he is hiding something!
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Deepak Chopra instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Deepak does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Chopra since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Chopra will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Deepak Chopra, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Deepak Chopra invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Deepak Chopra seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Chopra perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Deepak Chopra appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Deepak Chopra fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Deepak. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Deepak Chopra also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Chopra dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
Deepak Chopra craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Deepak may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know him very intimately. Deepak Chopra is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Deepak is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
He is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making his approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Deepak Chopra also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving himself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
His vitality is not up to par and his will-power a bit weak, making Deepak Chopra vulnerable to swindle or deceit. His inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Chopra into dubious schemes. Deepak should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
