challenges and difficulties
Aldous Huxley takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Aldous enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Aldous Huxley also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Aldous Huxley does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Aldous Huxley 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Aldous Huxley 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 Aldous Huxley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Aldous Huxley - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Huxley tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Aldous Huxley is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Huxley's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Aldous Huxley needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Huxley's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
