G. K. Chesterton
challenges and difficulties
Gilbert has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Chesterton.
Chesterton is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If G. K. Chesterton does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits G. K. Chesterton better than being with groups of his own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which G. K. Chesterton 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 G. K. Chesterton needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
G. K. Chesterton benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives G. K. Chesterton a sense of inner balance.
G. K. Chesterton has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Gilbert needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Chesterton also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
It is deep within himself, as G. K. Chesterton faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that G. K. Chesterton 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.
The following are specific activities that will support G. K. Chesterton in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Chesterton, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
G. K. Chesterton should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Chesterton's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Gilbert's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Gilbert should use extra care in his relationships with people, for he could easily end up in the wrong crowd. G. K. Chesterton could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
