Most of us feel we are good people. Most of us see ourselves as fair, kind and caring. But are we? Or are we simply biased in our empathetic outlook?
Let’s look into this: If a little child gets killed in our city, we feel sadness, anger & grief. However, if thousands of people get killed in another country or culture, through an act of war or a natural disaster, we hardly spend even a few minutes grieving.
If we see someone being cruel to their pet, we feel they lack compassion, however many of us are happy to turn a blind eye to the slaughter of millions of animals, so we can continue to eat meat.
If we cut someone off on the road, we don’t think much of it, but if someone does the same thing to us, we ridicule their driving skills.
It is no secret that we judge ourselves on our own intentions, but we tend to judge others on their results and actions.
We are all biased. And maybe we can do nothing about it. But, here is something we can do.. We can become more conscious of our biases. Why? Because it will help us spend less time talking about doing what’s righteous and more time doing what’s right.
