challenges and difficulties
Irving Thalberg has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Thalberg is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Irving Thalberg 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 relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Irving from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Irving Thalberg feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Thalberg remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. 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, Irving Thalberg needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Irving accomplish this task.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Irving's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Irving Thalberg to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Thalberg in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Irving Thalberg 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 Irving Thalberg needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Irving Thalberg to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Irving Thalberg needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Irving directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Thalberg's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Thalberg's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Irving Thalberg needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
Irving has an extremely magnetic personality along with strong sexual attraction. Irving Thalberg tends to put his heart and soul into his work and may prefer to work with partners of the opposite sex.
