challenges and difficulties
Thomas Dekker has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Dekker is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Thomas Dekker 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 attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Thomas Dekker 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, Thomas 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 Thomas Dekker may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Thomas wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Thomas Dekker becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
At some point in his life Thomas Dekker may experience a tragic love relationship that affects him deeply. He may remain heavily burdened by certain disturbing experiences, thereby rendering Thomas cold or bitter.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Thomas Dekker 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 Thomas Dekker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Dekker's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Thomas Dekker has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is deep within himself, as Thomas Dekker faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Thomas Dekker 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.
