Mao Tse Tung
challenges and difficulties
Mao Tse Tung takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Mao enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Mao Tse Tung also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Mao Tse Tung may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Mao may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Mao Tse Tung may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Mao Tse Tung has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Mao also fears it and hang back. Mao Tse Tung may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Mao could find it difficult to express himself and consequently he feels inhibited and lonely at times. He tends to isolate himself from others and his relationships seem strained. Conditions in Mao Tse Tung's parental home may be oppressive and constrained.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mao Tse Tung 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 Mao Tse Tung 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 Mao Tse Tung - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Tse Tung 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.
Mao Tse Tung 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 Tse Tung's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Mao Tse Tung needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Mao Tse Tung is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Tse Tung's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Tse Tung always looks to establish relationships with groups or associations and has the ability to blend in unobtrusively. Mao Tse Tung has a way of integrating others needs and feelings, at the same time realizing and considering the proceedings of the association.
Mao has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Mao Tse Tung may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
Tse Tung makes a big impression on everyone he meets and has the ability to attract many people. Others find Mao Tse Tung very fascinating and he is likely to see himself as their model or example in groups or associations.
