Pujya Deepakbhai, a spiritual master, says that the “Natural Law is that the jealousy felt by us will block our own Self (Soul). But if we wish well for others, the very feeling, will remove obstacles impeding our own development.”
• Jealousy leads to negativity: -
People always feel jealous of those who are at the same level as them, which naturally creates negativity. The negativity is the effect of jealousy which hinders one’s own progress. Due to this negativity, one ruins the pleasant moments in life and starts to develop a bitter attitude.

•Jealousy leads to competition: -
This type of competition hurts us, making us fearful of what others may think of us and as a result we only criticize the opposite person. Continuous criticizing and fault finding effects in scorn(tiraskar) which ultimately leads to fear. Due to this fear one can feel uneasy/ uncomfortable while dealing with the opposite person.
You will be able to get a clear idea with this example: -
If you have car, then you will never feel jealous about a person who owns a bicycle. But you will be jealous of someone, who has a more expensive car then you.

Tip: -
To get rid of jealousy and the obstructions created by it, one should see the positive characteristics within the very person towards whom they are feeling jealousy.

In reality, you should compete with yourself. Your true competition should be with your past self and you should always strive to become better than you were yesterday. This is possible by remaining sincere to yourself and towards your goal.

This is exactly what the Gnani Purush Param Pujya Dadashri, teaches us in a practical and scientific way. Get set on your road to success without competition.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
