Just to the degree that the love of God is realized we know that he Is no respecter of persons. ENVY PASSIM AWAY It then becomes Impossible fur us to look with envious longing at another LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 15, 1010. human being. In sh«rt, common sense shows us that to envy another is about the most nonsensical occupation mor tal mind indulges; and perhaps this is why it so often seems so near to mad ness. It is seldom that even personal injury rouses In one as great hatred for an offender as mere envy of some one's successes seems to do. In "Scl- ence and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy, speaking of the gulf between Jesus ami his betrayer says, "this spiritual distance Inflamed Judas' envy" (p. 47). Love for spirit ual good would, however, have get him among the faithful disciples. Envy Is the antithesis of love. Envy Is one of the most insidious of mortal minds qualities. It disguises Itself un der all sorts of self-Justifying excuses. The unwillingness to hear prater of another Is prompeted by envy, and so !■ the picking of flaws In admirable people. The rejoicing In hearing In i<iulty spoken of another Is In propor tion to our envy and his success or his goodneu; and even the sympathy we feel for another's misfortunes is often proportionate to our satisfaction in the removal of some superiority in him which we formerly envied. I.OVK, AI.ONK, TMAfHIMI Many an honest bit of self-analysis has detected envy as the root of lome evil weed of hato which one had strug gled In vaiu to kill. .Very few veoule hate a person in whom they envy nothing. Love, however, and love alone, gives us the point of view Indicated by Mrs. Eddy's words, "Blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and sup plleth it, seeking his own in another's good" (Science and Health, p. 518). CovetOUsne.M and envy look at the good things of another and long to possess them, and even though quite uni onsclously are really ready to take at his expense. Love looks at others to see what their need Is and to sup ply it, and to find in this its own achievement and full reward. Instead of the uneasiness which envy feels at another's good fortune, love has ten derness for his sufferings and rejoicing when these aro relieved. Perhaps the crown of human happiness is the joy we foel In the happiness of some one dearly beloved. Hut if all men are our brothers, then all are beloved of us, and In their happiness is our own. This it is to love the neighbor as the self. The sure cure for envy is gratitude. Gratitude Is really the child of love. We love God for the good He gives us. Loye for Him is born when we first know what good really Is, really taste th% excellence of spiritual joy. We Irtvfi that which is seen to be alto gether lovely. After this .-recognition of spirit comes gratitude for "the new found happiness, and the meekness of a child possesses the heart that was perhaps hard and worldly before. No thankfulness for any material good was ever so all pervading, sweet as the fragrance of flowers Is sweet —as the gratitude th*U streams through the consciousness of one who has learned to recognize spiritual good, the actual presence of divine love here and now. QOO is i mikimliiii When this has been realized envy of others for their possessions or achieve ments disappears. One sees and knows that the omnipresence of God, who Ih Love and good, makes it for ever impossible that any one can have any room left to desire anything. This is being satisfied; and in true satis faction envy has no entering place. After the revelation of what It is to which we are really all heirs alike and the attendant gratitude for spirit ual understanding, we learn to walk the daily round as in God's sight. We are no longer looking Bl the possessions of others. \V<- are considering our own and giving hourly thanks for blessings perhaps hitherto wholly ignored. And even before the higher light of divine understanding has shone for ua we may begin recounting mentally the thing! in our present experience that we have to be grateful for. it is in tl\e right appreciation of these things— gratitude for bits of beauty and bright ness, for the ability to do some email deed of love for some one, in the privilege of serving never so humbly some large v.ork of comfort or good to the world—that we learn to spirit ualize our thoughts of all things. The spiritualizing of our concepts is what lifts us, till gradually better and bet ter things are declared in our present experience.—Christian Science Monitor.
