*52* THE TETRAGONAL (4) LIFESTYLE...LEADING A DOUBLE LIFE









ONE OF THE PREMIER STONES WITH A TETRAGONAL SHAPE, IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES: RUTILE.

IT NATURALLY OCCURS IN FINE THREADS WITHIN QUARTZ.

IT OCCURS IN A GOLD, A REDDISH BROWN AND BLACK.


THIS SHAPE WHEN FORMING, MIMICS A RECTANGLE.

I CALL IT THE CUBIC'S (SQUARE) "FUN COUSIN"...

THIS 'TETRAGONAL LIFESTYLE' HAS TWO FACES: AN INNER ONE AND AN OUTER ONE.


IT IS A PATTERN OF THE TETRA PERSONALITY TO MAKE DETAILED PLANS AND THEN THROW THEM OUT AGAIN AT THE NEXT MOMENT, PARTLY BECAUSE OF SPONTANEOUS CHANGES,

AND PARTLY BECAUSE OF MISTAKEN ESTIMATES REGARDING THE ACTUAL TIME REQUIRED FOR CERTAIN TASKS.

THIS PERSONALITY FINDS IT EASY TO MAKE THESE CHANGES, MANY TIMES TO THE CHAGRIN OF THOSE WHO CANNOT MAKE CHANGES IN PLANS THAT EASILY.

RADIATING AN AIR OF STABILITY ON THE OUTSIDE, ON THE INSIDE, THEY CAN HAVE ISSUES WITH A BREAKDOWN IN TIME MANAGEMENT.


THIS PERSONALITY LOVES THE NEW AND UNKNOWN. THEY ARE THE COURAGEOUS EXPLORERS AND INVENTORS THAT ARE WILLING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB FOR HE BETTERMENT OF MANKIND.

DISLIKING DAYS OF CONSTANT REPETITIONS, THE ABILITY TO DROP A 'DEAD-END' PROJECT WHEN IT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT WORKING OUT, IS AS EASY AS SWITCHING A LAMP OFF.

OF COURSE, A NEW PROJECT WILL ALWAYS BE LURKING ABOUT, WAITING TO BE THE NEXT BEST THING.


ALWAYS READY TO LEARN FROM ANY NEW ACTION OR EVENT, AND IMPROVE ON IT NEXT TIME, KEEPS THE TETRA IN HOPES OF SUCCESS. OTHERS SEE THIS AS BEING UNPREDICTABLE.

SUCH IS THE LIFE OF INVENTORS, AND WAY-SHOWERS.


THE TETRA PERSONALITY IS ABLE TO EVALUATE INFORMATION VERY QUICKLY, BUT THE INTERPRETATIONS ARE USUALLY STRONGLY COLORED BY THEIR MOMENTARY FEELINGS.

CHANGING THEIR MINDS VERY RAPIDLY, WHEN THE NEED ARISES, AND FULLY SUPPORTING THE NEW VIEWPOINT, IS THE HALLMARK OF A TETRA PERSONALITY.


USUALLY BLISSFULLY HAPPY, THE TETRA PERSONALITY ALWAYS HAS AN ANSWER FOR EVERY QUESTION. THEY ARE SECURE IN MOST SITUATIONS, BUT CHOOSE TO REMAIN IN A POSITION WHERE THEY CAN DECIDE WHETHER AND WITH WHOM TO REVEAL FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS.

IF NECESSARY, THE TETRA IS ABLE TO COMPLETELY COVER THEIR FEELINGS IN ORDER TO APPEAR TO ADDRESS A SITUATION APPROPRIATELY. THEY ARE CAPABLE OF CONSCIOUS DECEIT AND LIVING OUT SEVERAL IDENTITIES SIDE BY SIDE WITHOUT TOO MUCH DIFFICULTY.


LOOKING AT SPECIMENS OF RUTILATED QUARTZ IS PROOF OF THIS 'LINING-UP' OF EXACT DUPLICATES TO CREATE A MIMICKING PATTERN. FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION, I HAVE DISCOVERED THIS, WITH THESE STONE/PERSONALITY CO-RELATIONS...

LET'S LOOK FARTHER INTO THIS PHENOMENON.


THIS DUAL NATURE IS ALSO MIRRORED IN THEIR OUTWARD APPEARANCE, WHICH IS USUALLY ALWAYS CHANGING. THEY ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING THEIR HAIRSTYLE AND CLOTHES.

THEIR BODY WEIGHT CAN FLUCTUATE, DEPENDING ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND LIFE SITUATION.

CONCEALING UNDESIRABLE FEATURES, AND EMPHASIZING THE MORE DESIRABLE ONES, IS A PATTERN DEPENDING ON THE LIFE SITUATION.

+++CHAMELEONS AND SOME CAMOUFLAGING SEA CREATURES COMES TO MIND WHEN I THINK OF THE TETRA PERSONALITY.


THIS CALCULATED WAY OF PRESENTING AND EXPRESSING THEMSELVES DOES CONTAIN A RISK.

DEVELOPING A HARD EXTERIOR CAN AFFORD A SEMBLANCE OF PROTECTION, BUT IT TAKES A LOT OF ENERGY TO MAINTAIN IT. THIS CAN MAKE THIS PERSONALITY A BIT 'SHADY', AFFECTING THOSE CLOSEST TO THEM. WHILE NOT SHARING THE INNERMOST SECRETS OR SHOWING VULNERABILITY, THIS TYPE IS USUALLY LONELY, ALTHOUGH APPEARING SOCIABLE AND FRIENDLY OUTWARDLY.


WANTING TO GIVE IN TO THEIR FEELINGS ON THE ONE SIDE, AND THE OTHER SIDE NEEDING TO CONTROL EVERY SITUATION, THE TETRA WILL INVARIABLY DECEIVE THEMSELVES AND OTHERS.

A PATTERN OF BAD HABITS CREATES COWARDICE, AND SHAME IS A CONSTANT COMPANION.


THE DOUBLE LIFE HAS ITS PRICE. JUSTIFYING WITH A GREAT DEAL OF ARTFUL PERSUASION TAKES A LOT OF 'CHESS-MOVES' ON THE PART OF THIS TETRA TYPE.

BUT USUALLY THIS ENDS WITH THE EXPOSING OF THESE PATTERNS...


THE 'LOSS OF FACE' HAS A DESTRUCTIVE EFFECT--

THE PERSON EXPOSING THE 'FRAUDULENT' CHARACTER RUNS THE RISK OF RETALIATION BY THE EXPOSED TETRA.

IN SOME CASES, THE EXPOSED TETRA CHOOSES TO PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY HURT THE ONE THAT EXPOSED THEIR 'GAME.'

SOMETIMES THIS REVENGE IS TURNED INWARD, AND BY MENTALLY OR PHYSICALLY HURTING THEMSELVES, THE DAMAGE IS MULTIPLIED.

IN SOME CASES, THIS DEVELOPS INTO A 'FLIGHT INTO A BETTER WORLD.'

SOME TYPES DEVELOP INTO PARALLEL PERSONALITIES, EACH ONE SEPARATE,

BUT VERY MUCH A REALITY UNTO THE INDIVIDUAL.


THE 'TURN-AROUND' CAN HAPPEN ONLY WHEN THE TETRA STOPS ERECTING FACADES AND MAINTAINING THEM, BY PENETRATING THEM AND DISCOVERING THE SECRETS THAT LIE BEHIND THEM.

THE SUPERFICIAL APPEARANCE OF THINGS IS NOT TO BE RELIED UPON.

THE 'TURN-AROUND' CAN BE SUSTAINED WHEN LOOKING FOR DEEPER MEANINGS AND CONNECTIONS THAT WERE HIDDEN BEFORE.

IT TAKES COURAGE TO FACE THE WORLD WITHOUT A SHELL.

IT TAKES INNER STRENGTH TO BE VULNERABLE.


LOOKING INTO THE 'WHY'S' OF THE WORLD BECOMES A TETRA'S NEW 'SUPER-POWER.'

LOOKING INTO THE FUNCTION AND INTENTION OF WHY THINGS WORK THE WAY THEY DO,

BECOMES A MUCH MORE FRUITFUL AMBITION THAN BUILDING WALLS TO PROTECT THAT WHICH DOES NOT NEED PROTECTING...

USING THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH AS THE POSITIVE SIDE OF THE TETRA PERSONALITY CASTS A SHADOW OVER THE NEGATIVITY OF ALWAYS TRYING TO HIDE THINGS.


USING THE IMAGINATION FOR DISCOVERIES AND INVENTIONS BECOMES THE TETRA'S DRIVING FORCE, IF THEY DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THEIR BASER INSTINCTS.

THE DEEPER MEANING OF HUMAN EXISTENCE WILL INTEREST THEM,

AS SUPERFICIAL CONTENTMENT WILL NOT BE SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO BUOY THEM.


WHEN THEIR INTUITION IS ENGAGED, THEY WILL REALIZE THAT THEY HAVE A TASK IN LIFE,

AND THAT IS NOW THEIR FOCUS.

DISCOVERING EXACTLY WHAT THAT TASK IS AND FULFILLING IT, IS THE TETRA'S CORE REASON FOR BEING.


THE UPSIDE TO THIS PERSONALITY TYPE IS THAT THEIR VERSATILITY CAN NOW HELP OTHERS TO DISCOVER THEIR OWN TASK IN LIFE.


YOU SEE THE ALIGNING PROCESS, JUST AS IN THE FORMATION OF THE RUTILE THREADS IN RUTILATED QUARTZ.

THE TETRA PERSONALITY CAN ANALYZE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR SHARP INTELLECT AND DEVELOP CREATIVE SOLUTIONS BY USING THEIR IMAGINATION.

MAYBE BETTER THAN ANY OF THE OTHER 7 SHAPES..

EXCEPT FOR THE AMORPHOUS SHAPE, WHICH FOLLOWS NO STRUCTURE WHATSOEVER.


THESE METHODS MAY APPEAR UNCONVENTIONAL TO SOME, BUT THE END RESULT FAR OUTWEIGHS THE ALTERNATIVE 'STALEMATE.'

NEW PATHWAYS ARE ALWAYS MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN OLD, WORN-OUT METHODS.


THE FULLY FUNCTIONAL, OPTIMISTIC TETRA THRIVES WHEN FACED WITH CHALLENGES.

THE GREATER THE CHALLENGE, THE MORE WILLING THEY ARE TO ACCEPT THEM.



THIS IS JUST ONE OF 8 BASIC TYPES OF CHOSEN LIFE EXPERIENCES.

THEY INVOLVE SURVIVAL STRATEGIES WHEN FACED WITH THE TESTS OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.


WHEN ANY INDIVIDUAL REALIZES THAT THIS LIFETIME IS FILLED WITH EXPERIENCES THAT IT CHOSE, THEN A DIFFERENT APPROACH CAN BE TAKEN.

A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE FROM A BETTER VANTAGE POINT, WITH A MARKEDLY DIFFERENT RESULT. WHEN WE ENDEAVOR TO UNDERSTAND THE 'WHY'S' OF THIS PATH, OUR PATH, THEN THE INDIVIDUAL CAN RELAX INTO DISCOVERIES THAT WOULD HAVE OTHERWISE REMAINED HIDDEN TO THE ONE WHO STRUGGLES.


THESE BASIC PATTERNS ARE CHARACTERISTICS OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR ARE INDEPENDANT OF AGE, BACKGROUND, GENDER, WORLD VIEW OR LIFE EXPERIENCE.

AS WE ARE STILL IN SURVIVAL MODE (FIGHT OR FLIGHT STILL HARDWIRED), WE CHOOSE ONE AS A SURVIVAL STRATEGY FOR OUR ENTIRE LIFE OR FOR OUR PRESENT SITUATION.

AS THESE BASIC PATTERNS CAN BE SEEN IN CONNECTION WITH THE CRYSTAL SYSTEMS OF MINERALS, THOSE MINERALS THAT POSSESS THE CRYSTAL STRUCTURE THAT CORRESPONDS TO US ARE PARTICULARLY SUITABLE FOR US AS HEALING STONES.



I HOPE THIS FINDS ITS WAY TO THOSE OF US WHO CAN IDENTIFY WITH THIS CRYSTALLINE STRUCTURE, THE TETRAGONAL PERSONALITY THAT CAN RISE TO GREAT HEIGHTS AND

HELP HUMANITY FIND ITS WAY TO A BETTER WAY OF BEING.

WE ARE ETERNAL BEINGS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE AT PEACE WITH ONE ANOTHER AND OURSELVES....THOSE WHO ARE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO DO SOME DEEP INTROSPECTION WILL CHANGE IN THE CORRECT TIMING THAT IS PARTICULAR ONLY TO THEM....

.......MAY OUR ETERNAL DAY BE GLORIOUS!
