Today I saw a post someone wrote – an ad – saying, “Jealousy is the inability to appreciate what we have.”
I invite us to this kinder, more compassionate perspective –
Jealousy is the pain we feel when we have not yet acknowledged and resolved the ache of a deep unfulfilled yearning we have inside.
With releaseful self-empathy (mourning the gap between what we want and where we are currently), we get relief from the ache of unfulfillment, and our ability to be grateful and have Compersion (joy for others’ joy) naturally surfaces.
Jealousy is a symptom that there is something in US that WE have not yet cared for and fed properly.
With love and blessings,
