On a different note, I tried your "rise about the storm"/sadness is joy approach this morning, when my girlfriend canceled our upcoming get-together. First, I stepped above myself, and viewed my emotions more objectively. But one step wasn't quite far enough, I found. So I took another really large step and kind of hovered there...and sure enough, gazing down upon my horribly disappointed avatar, I found myself snickering at his pitiable, primitive emotions, and actually just kind of enjoying his suffering in a hopefully not perverse way.
Seriously, I was able because of that to be relaxed and compassionate with my girlfriend rather than do my usual feeling rejected and angry routine. Thanks for that.

YAY!!! This is just what I needed. After reading Levels of Consciousness, I realized that I was still a bit stuck on Pride and was getting pulled back from Courage and Neutrality... Jealousy seems to be a form of Pride, and oh man, if I could be free of it... I would feel SO much better about myself... because I've been feeling like I destroyed a friendship due to Pride. And I kind of knew the things this article talks about, but it's so good to just have them all there on the same page and specifically addressing the issue.
I want to heal this friendship... it causes me so much pain. Thank you!!!!
