We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.
Issue Number 62, Fall, 2008 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.
Today we will continue with that series:
Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)
SPLEEN – 17-24 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2
Writing my Own History…
“As I am becoming able to create a welcoming inner space, this will affect my ability to create environments and circumstances where people feel comfortable around me and want to come back to me. Cancer is also related to being able to establish intimacy, and 17 to 24 years old is a time when young people have the tendency to start having relationships that involve more intimacy (Cancer) and commitment (Capricorn).
Some young people in this period of life are very aggressive with their parents because they are not able to gain autonomy by creating a mature relationship with their parents. It is time to look to my roots and check what can be useful and what I need to get rid of, like old belief systems, destructive behavior patterns and habits. When I am 6 – 8 years old (Liver Function Energy, another Toe Flow), I learn how to write. Whereas, when I am 17 – 24 years old, it is time to write my own history, to create my own root, to build my own base, to stop being the “victim” of my parents.
This is also the time to decide what will be the work or career that will bring me sustenance, taking into consideration my talents, my potentials; what are the activities where I feel enthusiastic and energized, and how do I set them in action in the world (Capricorn). For that, I need to be sensitive to the world and to myself, to know at least a little bit about the world and myself and to have lived different experiences and challenges. To take risks and experiment with the opportunities for putting my talents, abilities and qualities into practice is very important now. Other important ingredients are determination, persistence and patience (Capricorn).
The questions and doubts are many: Who am I? What do I want? What am I capable of? What can I get from the world? It is interesting to observe that when I am 49 to 56 years old, Kidney Function Energy time, (another Toe Flow time), I will ask: What can I give to the world? What will I leave to the world? How can I contribute to the world to be better?
In fact it doesn’t matter what I do to sustain myself, but how I do it. When I am integrated and really involved with my work, any kind of work will bring me fulfillment and realization.”
