Burden of Jealousy


Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom.
- Rabindranath Tagore

He that is jealous is not in love.
- Saint Augustine

The jealous are troublesome to others,
but a torment to themselves.
- William Penn

It is not the man who has too little,
but the man who craves more, that is poor.
- Lucius Annaeus Seneca

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house;
you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,
nor his male servant, nor his female servant,
nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.
- Exodus 20:17

  5. Hi! And thanks for reading. I would completely agree, especially on the perspective of a 'threshold' and on working harder at it than monogamy. Not that monogamous relationships are without envy and jealousy - and I think it's important to say that - but monogamy deals with these emotions through attempts to suppress them. If we lean a little further to Western Religion and its role in providing faith to combat/stifle these emotions as sins within monogamy rather than try to understand them. Your character or eternal soul rests on your ability to not understand these things but remove them, which isn't - in my mind - very healthy for anyone concerned. Thanks again for reading!

  7. Once you become more and more watchful of your inner workings things become simple. Then a few things have to be dropped. One has not to be jealous if one wants to be loving. It becomes so clear that there is no question about it; one can simply see the point that if you are jealous, love is impossible. Jealousy is bound to create misery. Jealousy is part of ego, the shadow of the ego, the shadow of a shadow - and love needs egolessness. They can't go together, they can't co-exist. Jealosy Quotes
