Federico García Lorca
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Federico's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Federico García Lorca comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Federico García Lorca - 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 Federico García Lorca" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Federico a little better. This page describes the disguise Lorca 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Federico García Lorca is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Federico 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 Lorca's way of dealing with problems.
Federico García Lorca 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 Lorca's emotional balance and well-being.
Federico García Lorca is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Federico García Lorca probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Lorca's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Lorca, 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 Lorca's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Lorca will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Federico García Lorca overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Lorca'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 Federico through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Lorca's more rational friends. Federico García Lorca certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Federico García Lorca 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 Federico García Lorca 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.
Federico García Lorca comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Lorca may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Federico is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Federico García Lorca's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Federico García Lorca comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Lorca tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
His life is never a secret to anyone, for Lorca likes to publicize his plans and let people know exactly where he stands. Others are drawn to Federico García Lorca because of his conversational ability and people may often seek his advice.
