challenges and difficulties
Stanley Kubrick has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Kubrick is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Stanley Kubrick takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Stanley Kubrick 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.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Stanley Kubrick may withdraw from situations and people periodically.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Stanley, and he may have to withstand severe challenges. Stanley Kubrick will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold hearted in his decisions because of it.
Although Stanley Kubrick generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Kubrick also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Stanley Kubrick 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 Stanley Kubrick needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Stanley Kubrick needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Stanley's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Kubrick's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Stanley Kubrick to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Stanley Kubrick is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Stanley Kubrick needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Stanley Kubrick has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Kubrick will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Stanley Kubrick back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Stanley Kubrick's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Stanley Kubrick should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Kubrick's responsibility.
His feelings are heightened when he is with others and Stanley Kubrick has the ability to open up to them and show his feeling without reservation. Lead by his instincts, Stanley is likely to have many spontaneous relationships with other people.
