challenges and difficulties
Humphrey Bogart has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Bogart is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Humphrey Bogart takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Humphrey. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Humphrey Bogart is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Bogart wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Humphrey's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Humphrey Bogart to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Bogart in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Humphrey Bogart appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Humphrey to face the public.
Although Humphrey Bogart generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Bogart also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Humphrey Bogart 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 Humphrey Bogart needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Humphrey Bogart to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Humphrey Bogart needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Humphrey 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 Bogart's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Humphrey Bogart has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bogart will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Humphrey Bogart back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Humphrey sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
The following are specific activities that will support Humphrey Bogart in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bogart, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Humphrey Bogart should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Bogart's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Humphrey really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Bogart's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
He is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting his viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion rather than small talk. Humphrey Bogart is quite selective in his choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to him.
Bogart is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see him as a welcome comrade. Humphrey likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
Humphrey Bogart seems to have an innate sense of cosmic awareness and is likely to have strong psychical or metaphysical talents. He is inclined to join some parapsychology groups where he may share his unusual experiences with others.
