Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
If they do have envy, it will not be viscious as before, when they were distressed that others were preferred to them and more advanced.
St. John of the Cross
Be not surprised that you have feelings of envy when others are preferred, but do not allow those feelings to have power over you. In your prayer today, be intentional about praying for your neighbors’ success and advancement.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
