    Why is jealousy so intense?  Why does it become so consuming?  We explore some possible answers to these questions in this episode.  One reason jealousy becomes so intense is the urgent questions we feel when our significant other seems to be interested in a possible rival.  We worry that when our partner gets close to another person we will lose the specialness of our relationship.  However, the main reason we feel intense jealousy is that we feel our very sense of self is directly threatened.  Why we feel this way brings us back to the false self, a topic we looked at in the episodes on spiritual love.

     In the next episode we will look at how the false self plays into jealousy and contributes to the intensity of jealousy.
