challenges and difficulties
Greengrass both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Paul, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Paul Greengrass is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Greengrass.
Paul Greengrass has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Paul limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Paul Greengrass difficult to get to know intimately, as Greengrass tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Paul has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Paul Greengrass needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Greengrass will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Paul Greengrass 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 Paul Greengrass needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Paul Greengrass to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Paul Greengrass needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Paul 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 Greengrass' larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
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 Paul Greengrass 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. Paul Greengrass should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Paul Greengrass back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
