challenges and difficulties
Barry doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Rick is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
Barry 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 Rick Barry 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 Rick Barry better than being with groups of his own peers.
Rick 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 Rick Barry 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 Rick Barry needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Rick Barry's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Barry's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Rick Barry is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Rick should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Rick Barry can offer the world at large.
It is deep within himself, as Rick Barry faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Rick Barry keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support Rick Barry in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Barry, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Rick Barry's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Barry's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Rick.
He may have the feeling that he constantly has to surrender to the wishes of other people and he gives the impression of having a passive or indifferent role in his relationships. Rick Barry never takes the initiative and depends on the support of groups he is affiliated with.
Rick Barry tends to be fascinated by new and obscure things and may be strongly attracted to the occult. He may contribute to the spontaneous forming of groups and may gain spiritual enlightenment together with others.
