When envy runs through my system, I pay attention.
Envy has a strong effect on my thoughts but also a clear physiological reaction in my body.
I feel it as a red-hot flush all over my body, that excites and energizes me.
It is a way for your higher self to communicate that there is a need that is not being met in your life. And it’s probably connected to one of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
The negative emotion of envy stems from having a deep desire to create a more meaningful life, while feeling so far away from having that life.
We are in a constant state of becoming, and if we are not making progress on this path, our life will be riddled with envy.
