Root of Jealousy as I Understand It

A Mainland Dafa Disciple

[] Master said in Zhuan Falun, “The issue of jealousy is very serious as it directly involves the matter of whether you can complete cultivation practice. If jealousy is not abolished, everything that you have cultivated will become fragile. There is this rule: If in the course of cultivation practice jealousy is not given up, one will not attain Right Fruit—absolutely not.” Therefore, I used to think that jealousy shows when conflicts come up, which makes people feel unfairness, or when people look down upon someone. However, recently I realized that jealousy is not only caused by feeling unfairness, but it also originates from the absolute egalitarianism which Master has mentioned in Zhuan Falun.     

The egalitarianism requires “Fairness, justice,” which is fine for human society. However, “absolute egalitarianism” leads to evil communism, which destroys human society obviously.

For practitioners, we may not only feel unfairness when conflicts happen, but we may also utilize absolute egalitarianism to measure everything. Old forces evaluate practitioners with old standards. If practitioners do not meet their requirements, they will add difficulties. Meanwhile, if practitioners do not follow what Master says and do not meet the requirements of Fa-rectification, they will measure things with their own attachments and preferences, which makes them unable to clarify the nature of problems.       

I had a conflict with my colleague because of a difference in opinions on a certain matter. I felt that my colleague did not handle things with universal rules. After looking inward, I realized that I should not be trapped in the specifics, but I still could not let it go until I read the Fa about jealousy. Then I had the above understanding.  

Thank you, Master!
