challenges and difficulties
Henry Miller has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Miller knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Henry Miller may be something of a hypochondriac also. Henry must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Henry Miller takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Henry can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Henry Miller is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Miller can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Henry Miller 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 Henry Miller needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Henry Miller benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Henry Miller a sense of inner balance.
Henry Miller has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Henry needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Miller also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards 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 Henry Miller between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Henry Miller 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 Miller's task.
