challenges and difficulties
René Crevel has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Crevel is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. René Crevel takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
It may be difficult for René Crevel to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
René may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, René Crevel also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of René's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for René Crevel to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Crevel in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
At some time in his life René Crevel could have a possible tragedy in love relationships that affects him deeply. Some disturbing experiences may rest heavily on his shoulders and as a result, René may turn cold or bitter.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. René has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. René Crevel must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which René Crevel 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 René Crevel needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for René Crevel to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. René Crevel needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until René 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 Crevel's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Crevel's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. René Crevel needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support René Crevel in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Crevel, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
René Crevel should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. René can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. René Crevel has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
René Crevel has a very affectionate attitude toward others and the capacity to love a lot of people. There probably is a very deep bond between René and his friends, and when he falls in love, René Crevel is likely to love just as deeply.
