challenges and difficulties
Chopra is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Gotham Chopra may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Gotham.
Gotham Chopra has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Gotham limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Gotham Chopra difficult to get to know intimately, as Chopra tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Gotham Chopra will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Gotham feel a little out of step with others. Gotham Chopra takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Gotham feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Gotham Chopra has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Gotham Chopra struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Gotham Chopra has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Gotham occasionally.
Gotham Chopra has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. He may find it hard to keeps his attention on the real world and may become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Gotham Chopra has a desire to break away from tradition and to free himself from restrictive conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, he may suddenly become inhibited before he sets out on his goals, which could be to Chopra's detriment.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gotham Chopra 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 Gotham Chopra needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Gotham Chopra to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Gotham Chopra needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Gotham directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Chopra's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Chopra's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Gotham Chopra in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Chopra, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Gotham Chopra 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 Chopra'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 Gotham's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
