challenges and difficulties
Max Ernst has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Ernst knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Max Ernst may be something of a hypochondriac also. Max must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Max Ernst tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Ernst withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Max's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Although Max Ernst generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Ernst also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Max Ernst 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 Max Ernst needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Max Ernst 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 Max's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Ernst's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Max Ernst to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Max Ernst is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Max Ernst 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 Max Ernst 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Max Ernst in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Ernst, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Max Ernst should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Ernst's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Max's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Max Ernst's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Ernst's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Max.
Max Ernst has a vivacious and lively manner with a tendency to shock others at times by bluntly blurting out his remarks. Max loves to be with people, but tends to get overly excited when he is with them.
