A Tale of Two Faces

 After having written a review on Greed just, I come to realize that everything in life is relative. Nothing is absolute. There is no saying something is totally bad or totally good as well as how much of it as a quantity measure is considered excessive. As with some of our relationships as well. Even between countries, at one time, it may be a foe while another a friend! Think Germany, think Japan, think Iraq and think Venezuela. There is competition and there is cooperation within the world with the same country; consider Singapore & Hong Kong. 

Hence, it now comes to mind about love & jealousy. Is it both ends of the spectrum or is it a matter of consequence? Food for thoughts, isn't it? I've just set up another community on Lunch which dwells on matters concerning the self as well as the soul. It's named Inspirations and if you're interested in such beliefs and emotions concerning ourselves, I invite you to join it at the soonest and begin to share your thoughts on human nature and behaviors. We'd be delighted to hear your views on such matters that are of utmost importance to humanity and yet one which we can't truly touch but can only be touched by them.



A few months ago, I wrote a review on love. It was a lot easier to write about love, our love for something and also what's glorifying about love. It is however a lot more difficult to appreciate negative emotion such as jealousy. Until you've truly come to experience that emotion itself, one can hardly come to grip with its destructive nature. Knowing it and experiencing it are two different thing altogether. Having experienced it and then internalize the emotion, the most crucial course of action one has to come to terms with is to rise above it. THAT is the most difficult and yet is the only way to one's salvation. We then constantly have to monitor that "monster" which will return to tempt us over and over again in different fashion. Each time, it is more elusive and that is exactly the devils in us! It is a necessity to be conscious of them just as we do our body cancer cells! They invade our guard when least expected! Living a conscious life is the only way to go! If not, self destruct is not too far down the dead end road!



& no, it is not just a case of you having love for someone and then jealousy developed as a result. There is more to it than simple Hollywood portrayal of jealousy in man-woman relationships. It invades every aspect of life, including relationships within the family, siblings, friends, colleagues and even strangers! That's how real jealousy will wag its tail and spread its poison if not mediated and taken hold of immediately as it sprouted! Jealousy at its very root is evil though we might not even be conscious of its destructive forces at times, especially when it appears within ourselves. Finger pointing is in outward direction, it never is pointed backwards! The only way to be a master of our inner self is to live a conscious life; be aware of what's happening subconsciously every minute of the day! Self talk can be an enemy but also the very best of friend!

Nice! Don't forget that love also breeds insecurities at times. Love can be good, but you have to work hard at it...and I am tired. LOL!

Tired in love? Well, a relationship takes two to tango. When the music is out or one partner refuses to dance with the same tune, best is to take a break ;-)
