challenges and difficulties
Martin Lawrence often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Lawrence.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Martin. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Martin Lawrence is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Lawrence wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Martin Lawrence seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Martin has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Martin Lawrence may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Lawrence.
Martin Lawrence feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Martin may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Martin Lawrence may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Lawrence can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
A bit stubborn and self-willed, Martin Lawrence persists no matter what obstacles he has to overcome. He has great endurance and strength and he forces himself to work very hard. Martin Lawrence could be somewhat one-sided in the pursuit of his objectives.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Martin Lawrence 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 Martin Lawrence needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Martin Lawrence needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Martin's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Lawrence's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Martin Lawrence to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Martin Lawrence is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Martin Lawrence needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Martin Lawrence is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
