challenges and difficulties
Masters fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, William Masters may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for William.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if William Masters does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. William Masters 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.
The side of William Masters that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times William finds it hard to relax. William Masters may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Masters' task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which William Masters 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 William Masters needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
William Masters' path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Masters' actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Masters' life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Masters' ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Masters' focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, William Masters needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Masters' unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for William Masters to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. William Masters has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support William Masters in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Masters, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
William Masters should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. William can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. William Masters has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. William Masters seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, William does not do well in relationships and team work.
