His apparent gentleness and noncompetitive stance toward life (described in the previous chapter) may be very deceiving because at heart he is a "warrior". Corneille Heymans may feel at odds with himself, sometimes being very passive or benevolent, and at other times, very assertive and concerned primarily with himself. Both qualities are intrinsic to Corneille's nature.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Corneille Heymans believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Heymans' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Corneille Heymans craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Corneille likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Corneille Heymans loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Corneille Heymans also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Heymans, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Corneille Heymans believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Corneille Heymans hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Heymans' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Corneille Heymans to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Corneille Heymans would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Corneille Heymans to do so.
Corneille Heymans has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Heymans can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Corneille Heymans feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
The above description of Corneille Heymans is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Corneille Heymans tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Corneille Heymans often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Corneille Heymans also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Corneille expects the best, and usually gets it.
At times Corneille Heymans may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Corneille may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Corneille Heymans that needs to be expressed now and then.
Along with his energy and drive, Corneille Heymans has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Heymans, as well as a doer and a fighter. Corneille wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Corneille Heymans takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Corneille, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Corneille Heymans may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Corneille Heymans undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Heymans has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Corneille is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Corneille Heymans is a force to be reckoned with.
