challenges and difficulties
Lindsay either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Mark Lindsay may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Mark Lindsay feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Mark Lindsay does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Mark Lindsay 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.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Mark wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Mark Lindsay becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mark Lindsay 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 Mark Lindsay needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Mark Lindsay copes with stress. Mark Lindsay also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Mark Lindsay to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Lindsay's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Mark Lindsay needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
