Ho Chi Minh
challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Nguyen Sinh Cung. Ho Chi Minh tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Ho Chi Minh.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Ho Chi Minh from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Ho Chi Minh 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 Nguyen Sinh Cung 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, Ho Chi Minh needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Ho Chi Minh accomplish this.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ho Chi Minh 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 Ho Chi Minh needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ho Chi Minh needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Ho Chi Minh's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Nguyen Sinh Cung's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Ho Chi Minh to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Ho Chi Minh is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Ho Chi Minh needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
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 Ho Chi Minh 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. Ho Chi Minh should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Ho Chi Minh in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Nguyen Sinh Cung, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Ho Chi Minh has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Ho Chi Minh has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
