challenges and difficulties
Sidney Lumet takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Sidney enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Sidney Lumet also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Sidney Lumet works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
As a deep thinker, Sidney Lumet has good powers of concentration. However Lumet thinks slowly and takes his time making decisions, which are likely to be based on considerations of practicality and economy. Having little to say, Sidney Lumet prefers to talk about serious or sad things.
Sidney Lumet tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that his will is blocked in some way. Sidney may find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on his goals, which he may consider unworthy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sidney Lumet 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 Sidney Lumet needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Sidney Lumet's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Lumet's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Sidney Lumet is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Sidney should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Sidney Lumet can offer the world at large.
It is deep within himself, as Sidney Lumet faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Sidney Lumet 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Sidney Lumet in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lumet, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Sidney Lumet should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Lumet's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Sidney's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
He is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting his viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Sidney Lumet is quite selective in his choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to him.
