Jealousy.

The messenger.

Q: What is jealousy, what is its purpose and what are its antidotes?
A: Jealousy is an emotion, a creation of the mind, stemming from the “I”.
It has no purpose but it is a challenge. Like the mind it does not exist in Reality.
The solution is to achieve the elimination of the “I” by non-attachment to the “I” – something achievable by all, and something all will achieve!
Understand this and half the battle is over!

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    When one is consumed by jealously, he may do things which he regret later…

      Hi Paul,
      What you say is quite true and this is true because, and I quote from The ‘Quo Vadis?’ File III:
      Emotions.
      Often, emotions stifle the mind, loosen the tongue and harden the heart.

      If you wish to learn more about emotions search the File for the word.

      I notice your interest in landscaping, an interest of mine too, and suggest you may be interested in some of my work which you may view via the link below.
