“I am not a wise person.” often we hear from the people who consider themselves really wise.
At times I ponder why do people say this. If you are wise it reflects in all that you do and if you are not it will also be. But often while making a point or a suggestion often people claim that “I am not a wise person” but yet they give an advice or a suggestion. In NLP, suggestions are very important way of effecting the change. Hence if an advice is rendered with a pre-suggestion that “I am not a wise person” it self demeans the whole purpose of offering an advice or making a point in your conversation. At deeper level for most of the times in our naivety we tend to think otherwise. For often we find others less wise than ourselves and so this pre suggestion.
How many times we come across people who are ready to offer advice for any small or big trouble they happen to see around themselves? And how willing are the people around us to impart their suggestions on all matters of life including health, relationships, money matters, shopping, cooking, trouble at work place, etc.?
Interestingly the same people behave exactly the opposite to their advice when confronted with the similar situation in reality. Often we see such people sliding into depression when they face the reality with their chequered belief. Hence, it is important to drop all the belief systems which restrict our inner growth. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
Our Ego is often to be blamed. As Freud explained it, we, during the most part of our lives are bound by our egos. We set certain harsh and sometimes unrealistic standards that we expect others to abide by, while for ourselves we built different benchmarks. This duality in behavior is caused by deception of mind – the ego.  A wise man recognizes the games of mind, because he is the man of experience. Books give us knowledge and experience make us wise. So an experienced person will never claim they are wise or not, because they are living with the experience.
We are lost, because we are searching our answers at wrong places with wrong people. A wise person helps us search our real being. They simply introduce us to the answers which we have forgotten over the different lives we had. A zen master ensures that we get all our answers from within. The wise person helps you find that is not lost. Remember the story:
The Twelve Men of Gotham
On a certain day there were twelve men of Gotham that went to fish, and some stood on dry land; and in going home one said to the other, “We have ventured wonderfully in wading. I pray God that none of us come home and be drowned.”
“Nay, marry,” said one to the other, “let us see that; for there did twelve of us come out.” Then they counted themselves, and every one counted eleven.
Said one to the other, “There is one of us drowned.” They went back to the brook where they had been fishing, and sought up and down for him that was wanting, making great lamentation. A courtier, coming by, asked what it was they sought for, and why they were sorrowful.
“Oh,” said they, “this day we went to fish in the brook; twelve of us came out together, and one is drowned.”
Said the courtier, “Count how many there be of you.”
One of them said, “Eleven,” and he did not count himself.
“Well,” said the courtier, “what will you give me, and I will find the twelfth man?”
“Sir,” said they, “all the money we have got.”
“Give me the money,” said the courtier, and began with the first, and gave him a stroke over the shoulders with his whip, which made him groan, saying, “Here is one,” and so served them all, and they all groaned at the matter. When he came to the last, he paid him well, saying, “Here is the twelfth man.”
“God’s blessing on your heart,” said they, “for thus finding our dear brother!”
