challenges and difficulties
Parks doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Gordon is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Gordon Parks tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Parks withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Gordon's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gordon Parks 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 Gordon Parks needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Gordon Parks - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Parks tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Gordon Parks is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Parks' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Gordon Parks needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
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 Gordon Parks 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. Gordon Parks should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and Gordon Parks is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Gordon Parks is inclined to seclude himself from others. He may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
