challenges and difficulties
Viggo Mortensen has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Mortensen is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Viggo Mortensen takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Viggo Mortensen does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Viggo Mortensen must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Viggo Mortensen tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around him. Viggo may feels that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Viggo Mortensen 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 Viggo Mortensen 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, Viggo stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Viggo Mortensen 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 Viggo Mortensen feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Viggo Mortensen calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Viggo Mortensen 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 public life and career that Viggo Mortensen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Mortensen's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Viggo Mortensen achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Viggo Mortensen in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Mortensen, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Viggo Mortensen should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. Viggo needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Mortensen's heart and bears the stamp of Mortensen's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for Viggo Mortensen to grow and become more whole himself.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Viggo Mortensen has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships.
