challenges and difficulties
Dawkins 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. Richard Dawkins 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 Richard Dawkins feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Dawkins is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Richard Dawkins does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Richard Dawkins better than being with groups of his own peers.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Richard Dawkins pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Richard Dawkins underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Somewhat shy, Richard finds it difficult to relate to people and tends to withdraw from others. Since it is hard for Richard Dawkins to establish relationships, he would rather be by himself. Richard prefers everything to be simple or plain and prefers a more humble and secluded life.
Richard tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Richard Dawkins 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 Richard Dawkins needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Richard stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Richard Dawkins has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Richard Dawkins feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Richard Dawkins calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Richard Dawkins needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Dawkins' inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Richard Dawkins needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Richard Dawkins back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
The following are specific activities that will support Richard Dawkins in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Dawkins, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Richard Dawkins should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Dawkins' intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Richard's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Richard Dawkins has a friendly, open and sociable demeanor and a strong desire to cultivate relationships with warm and congenial people. He may enjoy participating in artistic events and he likes to associate with art lovers.
Richard Dawkins tends to pick his friends and associates very carefully and is always on the lookout for responsible and congenial people. This enables Richard Dawkins to feel secure with his colleagues and enjoy good relationships with them.
