challenges and difficulties
Cheney either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Dick Cheney may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Dick Cheney feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Dick Cheney may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Dick may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Dick Cheney may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Dick Cheney pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Dick Cheney underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
His ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Cheney can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties he may be faced with. Dick Cheney must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Dick has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. Dick Cheney must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dick Cheney 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 Dick Cheney needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Dick stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Dick Cheney has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Dick Cheney feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Dick Cheney calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Dick Cheney needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Dick Cheney needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Dick Cheney should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Dick Cheney in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Cheney, and often there is some feeling of resistance or initial awkwardness about doing these things, but they are important on his path to wholeness.
Dick Cheney should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and the underlying unity, by involving himself in generous and charitable activities, and by opening up his psychic channels. Meditation practices that develop Cheney's intuitive abilities, and learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Dick's path.
Also, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
He is somewhat restless and nervous, but enjoys communicating with people and is constantly confronting others with his new ideas. Dick has the ability to develop new relationships quickly and he can also be a stimulating force in group activities.
Dick Cheney tends to pick his friends and associates very carefully and is always on the look-out for responsible and congenial people. This enables Dick Cheney to feel secure with his colleagues and he enjoys good relationships with them.
