challenges and difficulties
Vladimir Lenin has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Lenin is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Vladimir Lenin takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Vladimir Lenin has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Vladimir limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Vladimir Lenin difficult to get to know intimately, as Lenin tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Vladimir Lenin has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Vladimir also fears it and hang back. Vladimir Lenin may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vladimir Lenin 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 Vladimir Lenin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Vladimir Lenin is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Vladimir Lenin's growth. Vladimir Lenin needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Vladimir Lenin has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Lenin will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Vladimir Lenin in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lenin, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Vladimir Lenin should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Vladimir can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Vladimir Lenin has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
Vladimir Lenin has a very sympathetic and compassionate attitude toward others and shows his interest in their well-being. His relationships are more on a personal basis and people are drawn to Lenin because of his sincerity and kindness.
