challenges and difficulties
Jackson both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Randy, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Randy Jackson is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Jackson.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Randy Jackson works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Randy has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Randy Jackson needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Jackson will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Randy Jackson will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Randy feel a little out of step with others. Randy Jackson takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Randy feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Randy Jackson has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Randy Jackson 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 Randy Jackson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Randy Jackson to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Randy Jackson needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Randy 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 Jackson's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
