Overcome Jealousy and Envy

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Overcome Jealousy and Envy
“We are made by love, we are made of love, and we are made for love. Everything is love anyway. Our hate is love turned sour, jealousy is love turned bitter, our fears are love standing upside down, greed is love gone overboard, attachment is love turned sticky.” ~ Khurshed Batliwala
The first sentence is profound truth; the second is what is meant by Oneness; the third explains how love underlies not only the divine but also the most down to earth.
“The jealous bring down the curse they fear upon their own heads.” ~ Dorothy Dix
With fear, possessiveness enters the picture, then jealousy rears its ugly head. Jealousy is the opposite of desiring life and freedom of choice for one's partner.
“Envy is a symptom of lack of appreciation of our own uniqueness and self-worth. Each of us has something to give that no one else has.” ~ Elizabeth O'Connor
As Dorothy Day said, "We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt."
Workshop A4 ~ Overcome Jealousy and Envy
Trans4mind Training offers a wide range of interactive video workshops, covering each of the major life challenges we encounter in our lives. 'Overcome Jealousy and Envy' is the fourth workshop in the Healing Yourself Module of 9 workshops.
There is a principle here: another's choices and creations (which includes their emotional responses) are their responsibility, not yours nor anybody else's. In the same way, jealousy is less than love, since it resents the other person's freedom to choose, to be themselves. Jealousy is not based on love for the other person and respect for their freedom; it is based on fear of losing them, on insecurity and possessiveness, on feeling the need to control the other person. That's understandable and human nature but unfortunately it is self-defeating; jealous behavior is more likely to drive the partner away.
Jealousy means, "I don't want another to have what I have." It occurs when others threaten to take what you feel is yours. Envy, with which jealousy is often confused, means, "I want what another has." It's equally about control and possessiveness and again this lacks respect for the other person. Because jealousy causes the most damage to relationships, we focus in this life challenge on overcoming jealousy.
Do you often feel jealous or envious of other people, causing upset with your partner, friends, family or work colleagues? You have on this page a myriad of top quality tools, both free and for purchase, which we recommend to help you through times when jealousy or envy are spoiling your life.

What's Behind Jealousy? ~ by Mark Tyrrell

What's behind jealousy? Some (not all) jealousy is driven by low self-esteem... "How could they love me? I don't understand how someone like them could be attracted to someone like me!" Poor self esteem seeps into every corner of your life, making everything harder than it should be, and sucking the pleasure from life. Continues...

Jealousy & Envy - by Peter Shepherd

Jealousy is an immature emotion. Adults should have learned better but in many cases they haven't. Jealousy is to consider another person as an object of possession, a person who has no right to make their own choices. Continues...
