In the last episode we ran across an old friend that we looked at back in the episodes on spiritual love- the false self. The false self is one of the major reasons jealousy can be so intense. The false self leads us to believe that the essence of our identity is basically the things we own or groups to which we belong. We especially make the mistake of identifying the "I-ness of me" with our closest relationships. No wonder we go bonkers when we feel jealousy about a loved one.
Now that we have identified why jealousy can be so intense, what can be done to reduce the intensity of jealousy? This will be our topic for next time.
