The Green-Eyed Monster

The green-eyed monster of jealousy is a living reality in our lives. We all feel jealousy in some way, at some point in time, even though we may not always be aware of it.

Jealousy creates the experience of sadness and loss which quickly transforms itself into bitterness towards the ‘culprit’. It can be intense or subtle, obviously visible or incognito. But the experience of its nature is the proof of its presence.

Jealousy gives birth to the feeling of insecurity within. It makes us feel challenged and threatened of losing something: popularity, respect etc. Insecurity in turn breeds feelings of fear which manifest in our words and actions in the form of anger.

The green-eyed monster sees no mercy and can easily start an internal revolution bringing self inflicted pain and sorrow. We need to identify jealousy from a distance and change it with positive vision.  It must be nipped in the bud before the strong and overbearing personality of insecurity enters and wages war.

Watch out: the green-eyed monster is about!

Om Shanti
