Behind Caine's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Michael Caine may cover up his sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or he may use his verbal and communication skills to express his imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Michael Caine as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Caine may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Michael Caine usually keeps to himself.
Michael shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Michael has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Michael Caine sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Caine tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Michael has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Caine will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Caine tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Michael Caine does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Michael Caine has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Caine more than it bothers him.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Michael Caine really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Michael Caine between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Michael may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Michael Caine is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Michael Caine will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Caine is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Michael Caine deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Michael has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Michael likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Michael Caine has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
