The fundamental nature of jealousy and envy is a feeling of inadequacy. If you were really blissful you would not be envious of anyone.

We must understand this – when someone around you does well in any aspect of life, you must find joy in this success, in this well-being. But unfortunately a whole lot of people tend to make themselves miserable. This misery is because there is no focus on enhancing the nature of who you are. Your only idea of life is in comparison with others. Your only idea of life is about being better than somebody.
Your only idea of life is in comparison with others
The moment we describe success as being better than others – right from kindergarten school this has been established – our education systems, and family circumstances, and social situations have established this, that you want to be on top of everybody. That is your idea of success. You want everybody to be beneath you. This is not a success story. This is a pathetic story of inadequacy. Please do not live in these inadequacies.
If you dig deep enough within yourself, there is something so wonderful and blissful, so absolutely spectacular, which is life. Do not live just in the confines of your psychological spaces. You are a life. If you touch the dimension of life that you are, you will see you are the most spectacular thing happening in this universe. As a life – not as a person. As a person you’re just one more person, but as a life you are a spectacular happening. You are here to experience, enjoy, and celebrate this life. Blessings to all of you.
