challenges and difficulties
Ammachi takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Amma enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Ammachi also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Ammachi does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Ammachi must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Ammachi takes her ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Amma has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but she can also become so involved in her imaginative, idealistic pursuits that she looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Ammachi becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Mata Amritanandamayi Devi is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
When she is with others, Ammachi often may suddenly become inhibited. She is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ammachi instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Ammachi needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ammachi's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress she is likely to become overly focused on herself and her own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Ammachi needs to strike a balance between doing for herself and doing for others, by discovering how Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Ammachi is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Mata Amritanandamayi Devi's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Amma has an inspiring, trustworthy and courteous manner, bringing lots of friends and acquaintances with similar interests into her life. Her parental home is probably very harmonious and Ammachi feels strongly connected with her family.
Not at all selfish, Ammachi has the ability to share the joy she feels with other people. Amma seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
Mata Amritanandamayi Devi is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see her as a welcome comrade. Amma likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
