Stories & Reflections
A star is not jealous with other star shining nearby. A rain drop does not envy with its peer. A leaf fallen on the ground doesn’t stops wishing well for other leaves still hanging. A thorn does not backbite about the rose.
People feel jealous when they see someone else living the life or having the thing they desire for themselves. It is natural to feel jealous and it is nothing wrong about it, as long as the jealousy is leading the person to the racing track. Then the person can work onto his sweats to get what he desires in life. This kind of jealously every winner has experienced once or more in his life.
However if the feeling of jealousy is developing anger, envy & anxiety within you, then you are not just jealous, you are feeling helpless & you are understating your ability to get something which other person possess. Jealously would kill you from inside, if you water the plant of jealousy with anger instead of hard work. You could either grow the cactus within yourself or the cashew, out of jealousy.
Jealousy is some type of energy which grows or collapses as per your feelings. If you continue feeling jealous, it would continue growing. Rather when you feel jealous out of proportion, then take a moment and speak to your jealously.
“This feeling is wrong. I should not be feeling so jealous with somebody. We all have equal powers and I can achieve more than I am watching and feeling jealous right now. Almighty, help me to not to feel this way.”
