challenges and difficulties
Tullio has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Levi-Civita.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Tullio Levi-Civita may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Tullio may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Tullio Levi-Civita may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Tullio Levi-Civita seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Tullio has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Tullio Levi-Civita may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Levi-Civita.
Tullio Levi-Civita has a tendency to be overly critical of himself. He may be plagued by feelings of guilt about certain past events, leading to further self-doubt. Tullio must learn to handle his frustration, depression and discontent and try to overcome his lack of self-confidence.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tullio Levi-Civita 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 Tullio Levi-Civita needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Tullio Levi-Civita benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Tullio Levi-Civita a sense of inner balance.
Tullio Levi-Civita has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Tullio needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Levi-Civita also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
It is deep within himself, as Tullio Levi-Civita faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Tullio Levi-Civita 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.
