Jealousy– Spiritual vs. Material


Finding Kim doing Baba’s personal work and herself excluded from it, Minta took it so badly she quietly went up to the third floor of the train station, determined to jump out the window! None of the persons present knew this, but the All-Knowing One sent Adi Sr. to find her. Adi reached the third story and caught her just as she was about to commit suicide. He took Minta to Baba, who pacified her and explained to her as she wept:

Spiritual jealousy leads to advancement, while material jealousy leads to ruination and hatred. Always remember: the impressions of the Beloved, whether in worldly love or divine love, have their effect on you.

If you love “A” his impressions will attach to your mind without your knowing it; and if you become jealous of someone else, the impressions of both will affect you. That is, if Kim loves me, my impressions, which are divine, will affect her; and if you are jealous of her, then my infinite impressions, plus hers of love for me, will both affect you.

Therefore, jealousy in physical love is not good, while jealousy in spiritual love is good. Where there is love, there is jealousy. One automatically follows the other; there is no need to create it.

For example: when you love me, you want to possess me all the while. If I go away from you to another place or to some other lover, you suffer., p1390
