In efforts to recognize the good in everyone, we cannot limit ourselves to the teachings of Lesson 3 where we include another person's perspective. We have to extend that conversation inward to examine our own bias and how they prevent us from even accessing the ability to consider a different perspective. This comes in many forms such as repeating stereotypes found in entertainment, intentionally perpetuating negative commentary based on a demographic, or even unconsciously reacting to a situation.
The reticulating activating system allows us "direct our attention" (p. 102) and can play a role in creating internal bias that we then must work to confront. For more information, consider:
