challenges and difficulties
Dinesh D'Souza has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Dinesh is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Dinesh D'Souza often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of D'Souza's which may inhibit him a great deal. Dinesh D'Souza must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Dinesh D'Souza takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes D'Souza a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Dinesh D'Souza and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, D'Souza will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Dinesh D'Souza 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 Dinesh D'Souza underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dinesh D'Souza 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 Dinesh D'Souza needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Dinesh D'Souza copes with stress. Dinesh D'Souza also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Dinesh D'Souza to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Dinesh D'Souza 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. Dinesh D'Souza 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 Dinesh D'Souza in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to D'Souza, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Dinesh D'Souza should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Dinesh D'Souza should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Dinesh D'Souza has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Dinesh D'Souza's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Dinesh may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
Dinesh D'Souza's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of D'Souza's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Dinesh.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Dinesh D'Souza seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Dinesh does not do well in relationships and team work.
