And once again, you understand that the "map" you have created

May have similarities to the one your domestication has built in your mind,

But just like a GPS, it represents a one level view of a 3-dimensional space

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change."

Wayne Dyer, M.D.

The main source of misunderstanding

between people

is the difference in their perspective.

But it really takes understanding,

a bit of training & a great deal of practice

to "translate" perceptions into 

different people's sense of "reality"

 It's really pretty simple.

Every thing-every person-every experience

we encounter in the course of our lives

writes a "script"

a kind of "game plan" of how we view the world

this is what we call our "perspective"

Thus you see, our brain creates a "map"

Let me make it simple...

 It's such an intricate practice, yet it is quite simple to understand

(it really is)

The mind (neuro) and language (linguistics) and how their interplay with one another

affects our bodies and behavior

In simpler words"programming" just means human domestication

which determines the "models" that we build in our minds

of our perceptions of the world we create.

Neurolinguistics is an understanding

not of the brain

but of how the mind, using the brain

expresses itself in your life and 

creates what you call your "experience"."

NLP is a pragmatic school of thought (called an "epistemology")

It is a multi-dimensional process that involves the development of behavioral competency and flexibility.

In Neuro-linguistics, the person with the greatest flexibility has the best advantage.

This is also true in Mediation, Parenting or any kind of Relationship

It involves Strategic Thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind the behavior.

You can control nothing other than your own attitudes, values, and efforts directed at mental discipline.

The rest of the world is as it is, will be as it will be, and unfolds as it does with or without your consent.

This is as it should be.

Indeed, this is as it must be.

You have enough to contend with just governing your own thoughts and actions.

Your consciousness and your will are more than enough to keep you busy, engaged, and challenged.

Master yourself, administer your affairs, discipline yourself, and you will have accomplished more than most ever dare.

This is your only purpose.

Are you not ashamed to allow the events of the day to throw you off balance?

What business is it of yours if lives begin or end, warfare erupts here or peace is restored there,

economies shudder, earthquakes strike, or storms beat down upon the land?

Will it all to be otherwise if you can.

What answers directly to the exertion of your will?

That, and only that, is your business.

Do not invite needless distress by insisting that the world must conform to your expectations or whims.

Who, after all, do you think you are?

Control the very small sphere that answers to your direction.

As for the rest, cultivate gratitude for the opportunity to draw breath and take part in a life that you never earned.
