challenges and difficulties
Penghlis is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Thaao Penghlis may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Thaao.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Thaao from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Thaao Penghlis feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Penghlis remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Thaao Penghlis needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Thaao accomplish this task.
Thaao has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Thaao Penghlis needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Penghlis will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Thaao Penghlis tends to experience inner conflicts between his responsibilities and his desires. Penghlis may give preference to duties over desires, which makes it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Thaao Penghlis 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 Thaao Penghlis needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Thaao Penghlis 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 Thaao's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Penghlis' understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Thaao Penghlis to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Thaao Penghlis is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Thaao Penghlis needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in trying to strike a balance between Penghlis' inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Thaao Penghlis needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
