challenges and difficulties
H.A.R. Philby either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Kim Philby may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Kim Philby feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Kim Philby does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Kim Philby must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Kim Philby 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 Kim Philby needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Kim Philby - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, H.A.R. Philby tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Kim Philby is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of H.A.R. Philby's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Kim Philby needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is deep within himself, as Kim Philby faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Kim Philby keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
