Many people in the coaching and personal development world can at times get carried away by the latest coaching trend, ditching their previous philosophy to latch onto the latest thing. Within NLP one of the key principles is that of curiosity which means taking a look at all development principles candidly and assessing how each can help people and in what context. Having spent hours and hours reading a variety of books from authors such as, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Michael Neill, Sydney Banks, George Mumford (to name a few) certain conclusions can be drawn. Eckhart Tolle I think explains the link between deep wisdom and NLP well (without intentionally doing so). In the Power of Now he explains that time is a construct of the egoic mind and that the future and past only exist as a hallucination in our minds (try living in any other time than now!).
