challenges and difficulties
Sri Aurobindo has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Sri Aurobindo is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Sri Aurobindo often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Aurobindo Ghose's which may inhibit him a great deal. Sri Aurobindo must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Sri Aurobindo takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Sri Aurobindo can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Sri Aurobindo is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Aurobindo Ghose can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Sri Aurobindo has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Sri Aurobindo also fears it and hang back. Sri Aurobindo may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Sri Aurobindo appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Sri Aurobindo to face the public.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sri Aurobindo 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 Sri Aurobindo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Sri Aurobindo needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Sri Aurobindo's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Aurobindo Ghose's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Sri Aurobindo to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Sri Aurobindo is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Sri Aurobindo needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his public life and career that Sri Aurobindo is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Aurobindo Ghose's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Sri Aurobindo achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
