Kurt Cobain often feels a conflict between his discriminating, analytical, critical side (described in the previous chapter), and his tolerant, forgiving side (which is described below). Consequently Cobain tends to seesaw, sometimes criticizing and correcting others and at other times forgiving them for the most egregious errors and inadequacies. Kurt Cobain should strive to find a balance between clarity and justice on the one hand, and mercy and compassion on the other.
Cobain's desire to serve, help, and to improve life for other people is strong; and he is quite willing to make personal sacrifices to do so.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable, and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Kurt Cobain as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Cobain may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Kurt Cobain usually keeps to himself.
Kurt has great sensitivity and empathy with others, and he often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Kurt has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels others' pain as if it were his own. Kurt Cobain sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged, and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker, or minister. However, Cobain tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Kurt has little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Cobain will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and Cobain tends to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. Kurt Cobain does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he has a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. Kurt Cobain responds very strongly to beauty and to love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Cobain more than it bothers him.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Kurt Cobain's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Cobain can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
He is positive, vital, energetic, active, a go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Kurt Cobain a winner.
