Excerpt from “Envy, projection”

TABOR: The Apprentice’s Book of Reflections by D.B. GaNung

Excerpt from “Envy, projection”

We might think “I wish I were like that,” but that thought can become envy. When
envy is caught up in wishfulness it can convert itself to a form of worship. Yet in all
likelihood it is only the wish for a character attribute. Now this can also become a
sexual need twisted together with the envy, then it is an inadequate solution for
personal development rerouted and by that momentarily short-circuited. In more
proud people, envy flips to jealousy. This can be a general hatefulness soured with
negative turn-down attitudes. In turn this can result in a consuming self-pride with
very little substance, obviously coming short of the mark for all the display of
arrogance.
