Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
challenges and difficulties

Bhutto is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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, Zulfikar 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 Zulfikar Ali Bhutto may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Zulfikar's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Zulfikar Ali Bhutto develops his power and inner strength. However, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
He is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back his inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited with regard to relationships, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is inclined to feel that he is better off staying by himself.
Because he lacks self-confidence, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto has the feeling that his luck has abandoned him. He is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, place too much emphasis on wishful thinking, and then get disappointed when nothing happens.

He is susceptible to deception by others and may encounter people who dissuade him from his objectives and try to use his vulnerability to their advantage. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto should watch his relationships very carefully so he will not get seriously hurt or disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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 Zulfikar Ali Bhutto needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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 Zulfikar's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Bhutto's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
