     At last, we have reached the point of discusssing how to decrease the intensity of jealousy.  We will briefly touch on subjects covered in the previous episodes on spiritual love.  The intensity of jealousy can be gradually reduced through a meditational practice called Contemplative Prayer.  Over the weeks and months of practice, the false self is unraveled one piece at a time.  As we grow in understanding of humility and compassion, we are able to step back from our feeling jealousy.  Jealousy never completely disappears, but we are no longer obsessed or dominated by it.  This kind of existence is much more peaceful for us, and for those we love.

     Next time, we will begin on the subject of community love, an important form of love that helps facilitate the growth and practice of spiritual love.
