challenges and difficulties
Franz Liszt has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Liszt is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Franz Liszt takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Franz from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Franz Liszt felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Liszt remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Franz Liszt needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Franz accomplish this.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Franz Liszt 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 Franz Liszt needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Franz Liszt copes with stress. Franz Liszt also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Franz Liszt to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Franz Liszt between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Franz Liszt 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 Liszt's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Franz Liszt back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Franz sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
