Lions Roar : November 2019
TARA BRACH is the founder of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, D.C. Her forthcoming book is Radical Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself and Your World with the Practice of RAIN (Viking). JESSEZHOU EVOLUTION HAS RIGGED all of us with a negativity bias—a survival-driven habit to scan for what’s wrong and fixate on it. In contemporary society, a perva- sive target is our own sense of unworthi- ness. We habitually fixate on how we’re falling short—in our relationships, work, appearance, mood, and behaviors. And while self-aversion is our primary reflex, we also fixate on the faults of oth- ers—how they’re letting us down and how they should be different. Whether we’re focusing inwardly or outwardly, we’re creating an enemy and imprison- ing ourselves in the sense of a separate, threatened self. While negativity bias is a key part of our survival apparatus, when it domi- nates our daily life we lose access to the HEART & MIND From Blame to Love We humans are gifted at finding fault. Buddhist teacher TARA BRACH teaches us how we can connect to compassion instead. LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2019 19
