challenges and difficulties
Harry Belafonte has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Belafonte is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Harry Belafonte takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Harry Belafonte takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Harry can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Harry Belafonte is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Belafonte can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Harry has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Harry Belafonte needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Belafonte will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Very cautious and reserved, Harry Belafonte may find it difficult to express himself. He is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to derive much cooperation from them, which causes Harry to be disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Harry Belafonte 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 Harry Belafonte needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Harry Belafonte 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 Harry Belafonte's growth. Harry Belafonte 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 his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Harry Belafonte needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Harry Belafonte should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
