challenges and difficulties
Jack 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 Oakie.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Jack from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Jack Oakie feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Oakie remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Jack Oakie needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Jack accomplish this task.
At times Jack Oakie 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. Jack Oakie 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 Jack occasionally.
Jack Oakie 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 Oakie's detriment.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jack Oakie 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 Jack Oakie needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jack stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jack Oakie has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jack Oakie feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jack Oakie calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jack Oakie needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is deep within himself, as Jack Oakie faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Jack Oakie 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 Jack Oakie in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Oakie, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Jack Oakie has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Jack Oakie has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
