Jealously

  • “Quantifying yourself leads to jealousy.”

 

  • “Pride and jealousy are dual images of each other. Pride is active ego, jealousy is passive. Both are domination, insecurity, and pettiness.”

 

  • “Destiny is real. It comes only to those who ask real questions. Not imaginary stuff- here, there, Brahman, consciousness, evolution. You live your life in petty stuff- money, security, home loan, jealousy, servicing the car, pleasing the boss, spying on the neighbour. So, ask those questions. Those are the real questions. Only in those real questions will you meet something Real, otherwise, you can keep blabbering – pure consciousness, seventh heaven, depths of meditation; flowerings of blissfulness; Hari Om! (Sarcastically)

    “When can I get my paycheck, please?” “Hari Om!”

    “Is my wife seeing somebody else these days?” “Hari Om!””

 

  • “Our knowledge is, in some areas, pretty detailed as well and it’s quite amazing, the extent to which human intelligence has gone and created this knowledge and other human beings have absorbed it and are putting it to use. Now, having known this much, is it not strange, what you read in newspapers? “Man quarrelling with man, nation quarrelling with nation, husband quarrelling with wife, neighbour quarrelling with neighbour, man quarrelling with himself!”
    When we find nobody else to engage, we are busy fighting ourselves. And we know so much.
    We know so much. Yet basics of life – jealousy, possessiveness, insecurity, small happenings in our environment seem to shake us up.”
