Take a moment to look at the image above… many of us, when it comes to our desires, goals, choices and overall vision for our lives do NOT see past the 3 degrees of focus. No concern is shown for those that can be affected by the choices we make, whether they be positive or otherwise. No consideration is taken for those that are overlooked or hurt physically, or emotionally from the ultimate selfishness and/or lack of thinking things through.
For example, a person who deals drugs does it for the money, that is their primary care, yet they do not see how it affects their ‘loved ones’ until one or more are targeted by their rivals. Yet, the rival itself has no concern for the ones in their blind spot because like the person for whom they are after, they suffer from the 3 degree vision as well. The cycle can be endless in its negative effects.
As I expound what I deem ‘peripheral values’, we will further look into what it takes to extend our inner viewpoints to the rest of those that are around us thus creating a vision of care for those affected by our decisions and actions.
