challenges and difficulties
Raft both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to George, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. George Raft is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Raft.
Raft 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 George Raft 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 George Raft better than being with groups of his own peers.
George has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. George Raft needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Raft will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which George Raft 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 George Raft needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Raft's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
George Raft has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that George Raft is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Raft's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
