What does “being a BALMER” mean? I suspect you would get a different answer from almost everyone you asked on any given day. But I think it is just who we become. It is ingrained into our souls and our core. Sometimes it is utilized in life changing ways but mostly it is just small everyday ways of being. How we breathe through difficult and challenging situations, how we choose to respond rather than react, how we instinctively do self-enquiry and challenge ourlimiting/negative thoughts, how we listen deeply to those we love and those we don’t, accepting them for who they are rather than trying to fix/change them. It is in our tone, our thoughts, our words, our actions and our behaviors.
