The above illustration is from the book Introducing NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) byJoseph O'Connor & John Seymour.
A quote from the book: "Acting wholeheartedly with wisdom means appreciating the relationships and interactions between ourselves and others."
We live in the age of the WorldWide Web and the Internet. Web and Net. Very evocative metaphors. They bring to mind images of relationships. They do build up a lot of relationships too: on social networks and chat sites and so on. Yet why is hatred increasing in the world? Why more and more of egoism, cruelty, and one-upmanship?
Maybe, we have relegated relationships to the virtual world altogether.
