challenges and difficulties
Dick York has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. York is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Dick York takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Dick York takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Dick can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Dick York is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
York can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Dick York has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Dick also fears it and hang back. Dick York may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
His outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Dick York tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Dick's nature that makes him feel that no one cares about him, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Dick York could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Dick, and he may have to withstand severe challenges. Dick York will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold hearted in his decisions because of it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dick York 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 York needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dick York needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Dick's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting York's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Dick York to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Dick York is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Dick York needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is deep within himself, as Dick York faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Dick York keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
