Helena-Reet Ennet: Envy is the art of counting another´s blessings instead of your own

OHMYGOSSIP – There are many people out there who are jealous of other people, their success and etc. Jealousy is a black thing with our minds. Finland´s Terveyden Asialla asked famous blogger, Twitter celebrity and OHMYGOSSIP -sites owner Helena-Reet Ennet´s opinion about this mental health question.

– Envy is the art of counting another´s blessings instead of your own. This is definitely a bad thing to do for yourself. Also, it is forbidden by scripture. At a first glance of the Ten Commandments, the average person would find most of them both logical and feasible. After all, who could disagree with rules such as “You shall not kill” and “You shall not steal”? The last commandment, however, might leave one a bit apprehensive: “You shall not covet the home of your fellow, nor his spouse or servants or animals, or anything that belongs to your fellow.” (Exodus 20:14)

– Desire is a feeling that seems to come almost unbidden. It is an emotion that tends to overwhelm one’s entire being. An obvious question arises: how can G-d ask us to control a feeling? But our desires are determined by our view of ourselves and the world. Actually, we do have ultimate control over our desires. Emotions might seem too powerful to subdue, but we can alter our intellectual framework. We can direct our feelings by manipulating our perception of ourselves. By being realistic about our strengths and weaknesses, we can change our thoughts and desires.

– G-d gives us certain inborn talents, life circumstances, and physical possessions with which to fulfill our role in life. If there is something we lack, we must not need it. It would be unnecessary, and even counterproductive for achieving our unique potential, to have anything more than G-d gave us. By elevating our perspective, we preserve this tenth commandment and transform ourselves. We grow one step closer to reaching the spiritual potential that was given exclusively to human beings!

Helena-Reet Ennet puhuu kateudesta
Kansainvälisesti menestynyt huippubloggari Helena-Reet Ennet kertoo Terveyden Asialla -verkkolehdelle törmäävänsä usein kateuteen eri muodoissaan. Ennetin mielestä kyseessä on musta seuralainen sisimmissämme. “Kateus on muiden siunausten laskemista sen sijaan että ihminen keskittyisi omiin hyviin puoliinsa,” Ennet toteaa.

“Se on pahasta, ja jo Raamattu on sitä vastaan. Meistä moni tuntee kymmenen käskyä ja esimerkiksi käskyt ”älä tapa” tai ”älä varasta” ovat hyvin loogisia ja ymmärrettäviä. Viimeisin käsky on kuitenkin yhtä tärkeä. Siinä kehotetaan olemaan himoitsematta toisen,” lähimmäisen omaa. “Meillä on mahdollisuus ja kyky hallita omia tunteitamme. Kielteiset emootiot voivat tuntua vaikeilta kukistettavilta, mutta ihminen pystyy niihin kyllä,” Ennet rohkaisee.

Ennetin mukaan meidän tulisi olla realistisia itsemme kanssa. Siten saamme kielteiset ajatuskuviomme hallintaan. Hänen mielestään olemme syntymässämme saaneet tietyn pääoman, jota vaalia. Meidän tulisi keskittyä siihen ja sen kehittämiseen, eikä ohjata energiaamme muuhun.
