challenges and difficulties
Pinder 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. Mike Pinder 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 Mike Pinder feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Mike may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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, Mike Pinder is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Pinder wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Mike wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Mike Pinder 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 Mike Pinder 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 Mike Pinder 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 Mike Pinder copes with stress. Mike Pinder 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 Mike Pinder to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is deep within himself, as Mike Pinder faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Mike Pinder 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.
