challenges and difficulties
The Undertaker often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Mark Callous.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, The Undertaker 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, Mark Calaway 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 The Undertaker may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
The Undertaker seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Mark Calaway has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. The Undertaker may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Mark Callous.
The Undertaker feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Mark Calaway may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. The Undertaker may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Mark Callous can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
The Undertaker tends to experience inner conflicts between his responsibilities and his desires. Mark Callous may give preference to duties over desires, which makes it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which The Undertaker 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 The Undertaker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
The Undertaker 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 Mark Calaway's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Mark Callous' understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable The Undertaker to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, The Undertaker is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. The Undertaker needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is deep within himself, as The Undertaker faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that The Undertaker 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.
Mark Calaway likes beautiful surroundings and knows how to create harmony in his environment. The Undertaker loves to be around people and has a strong desire to be influential in social circles.
