NLP through stories – story 7


The story very clearly indicate the level of understanding of the servant;
he evaluates the importance based on his exposure and experience only.
He bases his work & life as standard to judge the merit of action.

It is very clear from the story
The whole aim & intention of NLP is to increase the degree of awareness – within & without.
One needs to be aware of what is going on inside & outside; to be aware of outer & inner senses.

Increase your awareness level to increase your understanding level.

NLP through Stories -Story 6


He was a beggar life-long;
he occupied a permanent place on a way where many people passed by.
He had regular inflow of money and led a contented life.
He always expressed his desire to get buried after his death in the place where he occupied.
His end came. Town people dug a pit to bury his body.
They found a huge sealed container,
breaking open they found treasury of gold & diamond.
Poor beggar not knowing what was with him,
he was begging for paltry money to simply exist. 


This is one of the fundamental beliefs of NLP.

Look within; the answer to your life’s problems lies there.

Those who listen to their intuition and depend on internal resources don’t have to regret.
You are already complete; then why keep searching outside. It is only a question of realization.
NLP facilitates effectively for this realization.

medical shop

NLP though stories – story 5


A man came to a medical shop and asked for a medicine to stop hick-up.

The shop owner came near this man and gave a blow on his back.

“why did you beat me” the man asked the shop owner.
“Now the hick-up has stopped for you.Did you notice?” the shop-owner replied with curios anticipation  & appreciation for a very wise solution.

The man replied,” hick-up is not for me; it’s for my wife”

NLP does not assume what the subject wants and does not advice blindly.
Each person is unique and one of the principles of NLP is

In therapy, therapist is not supposed to assume what the subject wants.
Prudence lies in asking for what the subject wants, empathize with the subject, understand his need from ‘his map’ and offer suggestion appropriately.
NLP is a New Learning Procedure

NLP through stories – Story 4


Rykon was greatly interested in Zen learning. So he entrusted his entire business & proceeds to his only son-in- law. He went in search of enlightenment.

whereas his son-in-law was not disciplined; he became a spend-thrift and squandered the money through unhealthy habits. People around were concerned with  saving at least whatever is left over.
They sent word to Rykon to come back and advise his son-in-law and save the remaining property.

Rykon jouneyed back a long distance; he spent a day with his son-in-law and daughter.
He did not much advise or enquire on property loss or in-disciplined life.

When he was about to leave, Rykon requested his son-in-law to tie his shoe lace.
When the son-in-law was tying the shoe lace, Rykon in a gentle voice said to this son-in-law,
” Life does not remain the same; see how withered I have become; not even able to tie my shoe lace easily; so be careful with your body and save your health; life is important”
The son-in-law got the message and thereafter led a proper life.

Like how Rykon did NLP also does not unnecessarily dig open the past
and analyse to understand a past event,
rather focuses on solution  or in other words outcome needed by the subject.
NLP is outcome oriented, rather result oriented.
NLP takes you from where you are to where you want to go.
NLP is a very powerful tool to get what you want.

NLP through stories -story 3

An ardent student wanted to see The Buddha
and so with all eagerness approached a Zen master
and demanded to meet the Buddha.
The master immediately replied,
” On your way back home now notice
who is wearing pair of slippers wrongly;
that person is the Buddha”
The disciple felt thrilled
and on his way back home
he was carefully noticing everyone passing by
and invariably found everyone was wearing slippers correctly.
It was a great disappointment for him
and with tired feeling knocked at the door of his house.
His mother noting his son had come rushed to open the door;
The student found his mother was wearing her slippers interchanged,
right on left foot & left on right foot wrongly,
realized immediately  his mother was The Buddha and  fell at her feet.

The moral of the story is very evident here.
The student not realizing Buddha has been with him searched everywhere outside;
equally we all have the true wisdom already with us
and we do not realize this and keep seeking everywhere outside.
Look within; the answer to all your life’s queries are within.
External world is only a suggestion or hint;.
Believe in your intrinsic value & worth.

One of the principles of NLP is –
“People already have all the resources they need”
VRnlp helps you realize this


NLP through stories -story 2


A blind man refused to believe there was light in the world;
people around him tried hard to make him accept.

The blind man asked,” how will light feel? what sound light makes? how does light smell? what is its taste ?”
People were saying he was a fool.
They referred the matter to The Buddha.
The wise one said,” Given him eye sight first; rest is assured”
Like he Buddha said through proper treatment he was given vision.
The man with new vision said,” What a bright world!”

NLP says people can respond based on their perception only;
based on their understanding of reality only.
If they have to be made to understand & accept a thing,
put it in the way they can understand, not in the way you understand.
This particular way of receiving and responding is called “MAP’
The belief of NLP is ‘People respond to their map of reality’ 

This story also highlights another NLP principle,
“we process all information through our senses”

MAP as I say is “Mind’s Assimilation Process’

NLP teaches you the way to understand how people understand.
VRnlp teaches you that MAP


NLP through stories- Story 1


Disciples complained to the Guru,
‘O Master! You have been telling us a number of stories
but you don’t share with us the moral of the story. Why?”

The guru replied, “Yes … I will explain.
When I give you fruits to eat,
what if I give you chewed bits for you??”
The disciples understood. 

The story clearly indicates here a parallel to NLP’s attitude.

NLP wants you to go by your understanding and experience based on feedback, and do not take things for granted.

NLP respects every individual and recommends being authentic by verifying facts with personal experience especially on matters pertaining to behavior modification belief change.

One of the principles of NLP is “To understand, do”


Fool’s attitude

sokasthaana saharaani bayasthaana sathaani cha !

dhivasae dhivasae mootamaavisanthi na panditham!

Meaning :
Thousand reasons to feel worried,
hundred reasons to feel the fear – happens only in a fool.

The wise remains untouched.


NLP in the words Of Swami Vivekananda Post 5


The specialty of NLP is that you start from where you are;
fully accepting the way you are now, you figure out what you want to be;
in the process of getting what you want, NLP says,go by your experience,
& not simply by certain mental estimate.
Experience is authentic and experience alone makes you realize in full dimension;There is a saying “Experience is the greatest teacher”What you experience stays with you as memory and comes as a ready reckoner for reference.

That is why NLP emphasizes the need of ‘doing’ for understanding.

Decades before NLP said this, Swamiji says on EXPERIENCE.

I give here his own words,
“All human knowledge proceeds out of experience;
we cannot know anything except by experience.
All our reasoning is based on generalized experience;
all our knowledge is but harmonized experience.”

NLP in the words of Swami Vivekananda Post 4

NLP for Mind Management

NLP , the science of Personal Achievement , stresses upon what is called as state of mind;
your response to life situation is based on your state of mind at that time.
If you are in happy & joyous state of mind, then a disappointment or a minor loss may not affect you so much as you would be at a time of discomfiture and disturbance.

If you are already disturbed, then a happy news from routine may not enthuse you so much.

It is your disposition that determines your response to life situation.

To say in NLP term, “How resourceful are you?”

Resourceful state of mind means a state of mind with spontaneous ‘can do’ attitude & enthusiasm

To well maneuver life situation a resourceful state of mind is recommended.
It is possible to create a needed state of mind .

This concept from NLP is well reflected in Swami Vivekananda’s words,
“If you are powerful enough you can divide your consciousness into twenty parts all at the same time. I am changing my psychology. Mind grows. That is what the yogis say. There is one passion and it rouses another, and the first one dies.
If you are angry and then happy , the next moment anger passes away. Out of that anger you manufactured the next state.
These states are always interchangeable.
Eternal happiness and misery are child’s dream.
The Upanishads point out that the goal of man is neither misery nor happiness, but we have to be master of that out of which these are manufactured.
We must be masters of the situation at its very root, as it were.”
( Ref Complete Works Of Swami Vivekananda Mayawati Memorial Edition, Advaita ASharama, Vol 1 page 432)

Like Swami emphasizes here, the secret of success lies in regulating your state of mind.
You can lean the art of Mind Management with the tools of NLP
