challenges and difficulties
Gilliam 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. Terry Gilliam 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 Terry Gilliam feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Terry Gilliam 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, Terry 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 Terry Gilliam may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Terry Gilliam 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 Terry Gilliam underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Terry Gilliam 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 Terry Gilliam 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, Terry stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Terry Gilliam 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 Terry Gilliam feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Terry Gilliam calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Terry Gilliam 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 his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Terry Gilliam needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Terry Gilliam should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Terry has the inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Terry Gilliam may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
