challenges and difficulties
Lou 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 Adler.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Lou Adler does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Lou Adler must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
At times Lou Adler struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Lou Adler 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 Lou occasionally.
Lou dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free himself from them. Acting quickly at times, Lou suddenly overcomes his inner inhibitions. Lou Adler also has the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for his advancement.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lou Adler 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 Lou Adler needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lou Adler's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Adler's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Adler's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Adler's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Adler's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Lou Adler needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Adler's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is deep within himself, as Lou Adler faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Lou Adler 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.
He is somewhat restless and nervous, but enjoys communicating with people and is constantly confronting others with his new ideas. Lou has the ability to develop new relationships quickly and he can also be a stimulating force in group activities.
