The direction Tommy Lee Jones needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Tommy Lee Jones 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 Tommy Lee's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Jones' understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Tommy Lee Jones to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Tommy Lee Jones is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Tommy Lee Jones needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Tommy Lee Jones between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others.

Tommy Lee Jones has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
