“Jealousy is the grave of affection. The presence of mistrust where confidence is due, withers the flowers of Eden and scatters love’s petals to decay.” (Science and Health, page 68)
We have no reason for anything but confidence. We have no cause for jealousy or envy or anything that would mar that sweet and tender relationship with Love and Love’s expression. We must be alert to the subtle suggestions of error that would attempt to talk us into playing devil’s advocate against our own lovely life.
While we may not always find every individual’s behavior absolutely trustworthy at all times, we can know that we are free of any false influences, free of the need to rise to the bait and to follow suit with reactions that do not dignify either us or God. Divine Love is trustworthy, and always has each of its idea’s best interests at heart. No one is at a loss for love because of another’s actions. We always remain within the infinite affection that is spiritual Love, and so we can be calm and listen for the guidance that settles, satisfies, and heals.
Jealousy is unnecessary and suspicion and mistrust do nothing but hide from us our own peace and the gifts that are constantly abounding toward us. Let us not be preoccupied with doubts about ourselves or about others. Instead, let’s dwell faithfully in God’s Mind, as the welcome occupant of His own loving thought, and know that in that place, all are equally loved, equally watched, equally assured by promises that are always kept.
