challenges and difficulties
Steve Allen takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Steve enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Steve Allen also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Steve Allen may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Steve may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Steve Allen may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Once he decides what he wants to do, Steve Allen will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Steve feel a little out of step with others. Steve Allen takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Steve feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Steve Allen has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
The side of Steve Allen that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Steve finds it hard to relax. Steve Allen may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Allen's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
His ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Allen can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties he may be faced with. Steve Allen must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
He is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may think of Steve Allen as quarrelsome or nagging. His nervousness seems to stem from his tendency to over-work himself, and Allen should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Steve Allen 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 Steve Allen 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, Steve stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Steve Allen 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 Steve Allen feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Steve Allen calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Steve Allen 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Steve Allen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Steve Allen needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Allen.
The following are specific activities that will support Steve Allen in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Allen, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Steve Allen should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable him to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Steve Allen.
Steve Allen tends to feel sad a lot of times and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". He is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on his traditions.
