Discussion: Jealousy

Editor’s Note: Post updated on June 6, 2016.

From Co-CEO John Mackey: 

My involvement with Marc Gafni and former Board of Directors relationship with the Center for Integral Wisdom is conducted strictly in my personal life and does not represent an endorsement or support for either Mr. Gafni or the Center for Integral Wisdom by Whole Foods Market. With that said, I have decided to remove the video interviews I participated in with Mr Gafni, and am doing so to be consistent with the position that this is indeed strictly a personal relationship.

I really enjoyed this topic being discussed. I, like everyone on the face of the planet struggle to transform unhealthy emotions into peaceful, nurturing and creative ones and it's really nice that two gentlemen can sit down and hash it out in a pleasant manner. Keep blogging! You have fan. Currently, I a TM at Whole Foods Market Wilcrest in Houston, TX. Gotta' show the love to my company....

Another way to deal with Envy is to run down a mental gratitude list. If I find myself feeling envyous, I am unhappy when feeling this and if I will create a mental list of what I am grateful for this always changes my perspective of I don't have IT or enough to I have plenty and I'm grateful.

John, thank you not only sharing a few important virtues with us in you conversation with Dr. Gafni but also for helping people understand how to transition from the bi-product of said virtues, disruptive, evil thoughts and turning those internal issues into positive feelings were one can become constructive and successful with the right knowledge.
