challenges and difficulties
Cody Linley has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Cody is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Cody Linley often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Linley's that may inhibit him a great deal. Cody Linley must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Cody Linley does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Cody Linley 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.
Cody Linley tends to seesaw between hope, optimism and faith versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. He needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve his dreams and desires for a better life.
Cody Linley takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Cody has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Basically shy, Cody may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Cody Linley tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet life in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Linley is not generally one to join groups.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Cody Linley 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 Cody Linley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cody Linley's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Linley's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Linley's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Linley'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?" Linley's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Cody Linley needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Linley'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 Cody Linley between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others.
