approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Steve Bhaerman's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Swami Beyondananda comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Swami Beyondananda - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Swami Beyondananda" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Steve Bhaerman a little better. This page describes the disguise Swami Beyondananda wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Swami Beyondananda has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Swami Beyondananda as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Steve Bhaerman does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Swami Beyondananda is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Swami Beyondananda can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Swami Beyondananda has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Swami Beyondananda appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Steve Bhaerman often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Steve Bhaerman is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Swami Beyondananda's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Swami Beyondananda has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Swami Beyondananda is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Steve Bhaerman's personality. Swami Beyondananda may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up his own mind, and Swami Beyondananda may thus appear to be indecisive.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Swami Beyondananda likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Swami Beyondananda may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Swami Beyondananda's challenge.
Swami Beyondananda appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Swami Beyondananda as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
Swami Beyondananda appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Swami Beyondananda may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Steve Bhaerman fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Swami Beyondananda is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Swami Beyondananda has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Swami Beyondananda can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Swami Beyondananda. Steve Bhaerman probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Swami Beyondananda is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Steve Bhaerman present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
He is self-assured and confident in dealing with others and has a positive influence on his environment. Swami Beyondananda is able to work well with others in a team effort, and advantages through other people could come to him frequently.
