Charisma is characterised by a deep sense of knowing ourselves, and our true worth, which creates a feeling of timeless confidence. It is founded upon graceful presence and humility, rather than ego claims or actions. When charisma is present, we have a relaxed body with an open posture, and we think and speak with deliberation. We are also more in touch with the sublime states, particularly joy and love. Overall, the depth and passion of the spirit of life envelops us, so that to others, we may sometimes appear to be larger than life.
