challenges and difficulties
Paul Stookey often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Stookey.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Paul Stookey may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Paul may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Paul Stookey may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Paul Stookey shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Paul Stookey 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 Paul Stookey needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Paul Stookey to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Paul Stookey needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Paul directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Stookey's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Paul Stookey should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
