challenges and difficulties
Wilhelm Reich has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Reich is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Wilhelm Reich takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Wilhelm Reich understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Wilhelm Reich is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Wilhelm has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Wilhelm Reich needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Reich will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Wilhelm wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Wilhelm Reich becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Basically shy, Reich tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. Wilhelm Reich longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but he is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Wilhelm Reich 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 Wilhelm Reich needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Wilhelm Reich's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Reich's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Reich's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Reich's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Reich's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Wilhelm Reich needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Reich's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Wilhelm Reich between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Wilhelm Reich seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Reich's task.
