OM, Purnamata purnamitam purnat purnamutachyate, purnasya purnamataye purnamevavasishyate – Bri.Up V.i.1



Jealousy is the most common negative trait among friends, relatives and society in general. It may happen at any stage in our life, there is no age limit for this common problem. It is a misconception of the mind.  In my view, jealousy happens, only or most commonly, under two situations.

1. When a person, known or unknown, is experiencing our aspiration, we become jealous of that person.

2. When a person excels against our underestimation, we become jealous of that person. It mostly happens with person, whom we are familiar with.

In both these types, the other person is not responsible. Only our imagination is responsible.

The first and foremost thing a person should remember is that, ‘a person should strictly concentrate on his/her own life ladder’, because others loss or gain will not bring us success.  If we lose something it is our fault, nobody else can rectify it.  If someone places hurdle for our success, we must exploit the tremendous latent will power in us (not used properly),to cross the hurdle.  Each individual is basically infinite, but we limit ourselves.  We should know to dominate our own life. Our goal is in our mind, no one else can tamper with it.  We can be inspired by others, but when we compare our progress with others, it is foolishness.  Each individual has his/her own path to success, and it will be definitely unique.  We must have confidence, in what we believe.
