challenges and difficulties
Emile Baulieu has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Baulieu is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Emile Baulieu takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Emile Baulieu has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Emile limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Emile Baulieu difficult to get to know intimately, as Baulieu tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Emile Baulieu strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Emile Baulieu 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 Emile Baulieu needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Emile Baulieu is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Emile Baulieu's growth. Emile Baulieu needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Emile Baulieu has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Baulieu will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
