His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.

The direction Ray Manzarek needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Ray Manzarek becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be.

Ray Manzarek needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth.
