We often choose to not be aware when we express jealousy or feel the self-fury. Sometimes even when we are ‘inspired’ by another, we have a self-critical part that remains uncomfortable with the reflection that person or situation offers. And so energetically the force comes through us – sometimes under the pretence of being ‘nice’ in an attempt to not feel the desolation of our own choices. It is here that jealousy is the most poisonous, for what has been wielded, perhaps unwittingly, as a weapon to destroy another ultimately serves as our own undoing. By bullying another in an attempt to have them reject their light, we obliterate the connection we have to our own light. Jealousy in this sense, as so aptly described by Shakespeare, is like a ‘green-eyed monster that doth mock the meat it feeds on’.
