challenges and difficulties
Fuller 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 Buckminister, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Buckminster Fuller 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 Fuller.
Buckminster Fuller takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Buckminister can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Buckminster Fuller is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Fuller can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Buckminster Fuller may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Buckminister should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of his friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive him, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Fuller.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Buckminster Fuller 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 Buckminster Fuller needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Fuller's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Buckminster Fuller has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Buckminster Fuller is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Buckminster Fuller in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fuller, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Buckminster Fuller should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Buckminster Fuller should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Buckminster Fuller has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Buckminster Fuller's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Buckminister may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
