Ask Deepak

Why do other people’s success sometimes cause sadness?.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

“Dear Deepak, I have been reading your books for 6 months. 

Thanks to the Public library for keeping most of your books. 

I think I know the answer to the following question but I would like to hear from you. 

Why do I feel unhappy when I hear/see good things about others? 

For example, when someone shares a family picture on Facebook on a trip, gets promoted, celebrates with friends, etc. 

It is not that I don’t have these in my life. 

I do have friends (a few selected), I do have a good family and I do have a good job/position/salary. 

But I still feel jealous or unhappy about others. Why do I feel like this?”

Response:

That reaction is your conditioned ego mind that always compares your circumstances to others. 

Even though you have many good things in your life, the ego mind can still find a way to make you feel unhappy or jealous of the good fortune of others. 

You don’t need to go into an analysis of why, it’s enough to recognize what is happening and shift your attention to what is good in your life right now.

Love,

Deepak
