challenges and difficulties
Auguste Rodin has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Rodin is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Auguste Rodin takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Rodin is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Auguste Rodin does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Auguste Rodin better than being with groups of his own peers.
Auguste Rodin becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Rodin is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Rodin forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for his efforts. Reserved and shy, Auguste Rodin tends to build a wall between himself and others and he seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Auguste Rodin 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 Auguste Rodin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Auguste Rodin's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Rodin's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Rodin's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Rodin's 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?" Rodin's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Auguste Rodin needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Rodin's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Auguste Rodin between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Auguste Rodin seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Rodin's task.
