In spite of his rather meek appearance (as described on the previous page), he is very stubborn and tenacious, and there is a great deal of quiet willfulness and strength behind his modest demeanor.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Khomeini's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Ayatollah Khomeini has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being, and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Ayatollah Khomeini will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Khomeini can be enormously lazy at times and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Ayatollah Khomeini also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting rather than an urban life style.
At heart his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Ayatollah Khomeini has a strong desire for security, stability, and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave lots of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadiness, and gentle strength, others often depend upon Khomeini for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Ayatollah Khomeini usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Ayatollah Khomeini also has an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time, and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Ruhollah has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Khomeini's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Ayatollah Khomeini lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to the new.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Khomeini.
Ayatollah Khomeini has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Ayatollah Khomeini has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
