challenges and difficulties
Abbie Hoffman often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Hoffman.
Abbie Hoffman takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Abbie can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Abbie Hoffman is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Hoffman can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Abbie's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Abbie Hoffman to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Hoffman in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Abbie Hoffman 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 Abbie Hoffman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Abbie Hoffman to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Abbie Hoffman needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Abbie directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Hoffman's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Abbie Hoffman is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Hoffman's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Abbie Hoffman in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Hoffman, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Abbie Hoffman should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable him to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Abbie Hoffman.
