challenges and difficulties
Bruce both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Lenny, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Lenny Bruce is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Bruce.
Bruce is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Lenny Bruce does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Lenny Bruce better than being with groups of his own peers.
His attitude toward life is quite serious and he is very thorough. Lenny has the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he takes action. Lenny Bruce may enjoy doing some type of creative artwork involving hard or heavy materials.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lenny Bruce 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 Lenny Bruce needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lenny Bruce's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Bruce's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Lenny Bruce is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Lenny should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Lenny Bruce can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Lenny Bruce has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bruce 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.
