How to Deal With Jealousy

 For millennia, spiritual teachers taught us how to free ourselves from the ego. Monasteries and ashrams flourished as their sacred respite became increasingly needed. But, over the last 15 years there has been a seismic shift in the psyche of our civilization. Today, instead of living in our head, we’re living online. Instead of shedding that egoic false identity, we are creating online personas and avatars. We have split the ego in two, creating an extra obstacle towards discovering our true self.

In our latest documentary film, Digital Ego, we explore the nature of these newfound digital egos, what affect they are having on us, and how we can break free from them so we can live more fully, more authentically, and with more meaning and joy.

Don't Try to Suppress Your Jealousy

All jealousy comes down to one essential thought: if I can’t have that thing, no one can. We know it’s wrong, we know it’s disruptive to our own peace of mind, and we know it doesn’t do any good for anyone. We can’t fight our mind and hope to win, but we can work with our mind to change it.

Similarly, we can’t fight or try to suppress our jealousy, but we can use the jealousy in order to identify what it is and see how best to overcome it. By diving deeper into the nature of our jealousy, we can understand the true nature of jealousy. We can bring kindness and awareness to the self-destructive feeling of jealousy. And, as this video explains how, we can dissolve our jealousy from the inside out.

How many times have we seen a friend post a 10-page anniversary message declaring their undying love to their soulmate on social media, only to find out that they got divorced a short time later?

We all know that many people are living fake lives on social media. From filters to photoshopping, from cosmetic surgery to fake followers, what people post is not always the truth.

So what is the problem with living for the ‘gram? Whats the big deal about filters and hiding my true self? Does it really matter if I live a lie if it means people like and follow me? I answer these questions and more in this video.
