Abandon jealousy, cultivate joy

“I suggest that the transformation of jealousy through the cultivation of sympathetic joy bolsters the awakening of the enlightened heart. As jealousy dissolves, universal compassion and unconditional love become more easily available to the individual.”

-Jorge N. Ferrer, “What’s the Opposite of Jealousy?” (Although in this linked article, he’s talking about jealousy in sexual relationships, not the more intriguing (to me) topic of jealousy of friends.)
