Envy, Jealousy, Sloth, Coveting and Other Vices
Here was a fun little dive Doooders and I found two years ago, and I'm sure there were vices by the bucketload that have occurred here: lustfulness, pride, envy, jealousy, coveting, etc.
What is your vice? Not a habit like say drinking, smoking, lighting your farts on fire, but what's the one weak downfall that you have, your Achilles Heel? Do you try to keep it in check? Or do you only TELL yourself you keep in check when you really don't.
Are most people aware or ignorantly UNaware of theirs?
I go through little intense spells where the Universe will show me a quality in people that I despise, and then it'll show it to me over and over again with many people, and I then wonder, what are you trying to tell me Universe? Are you trying to make me sick of the human race or just more attuned to my own judgemental pronouncements toward others, or are you trying to warn me that I have this vice as well and need to work on overcoming it?
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of sloth and envy around (bear in mind I work with the public, so I encounter people in masses every day). I've been conscious about envy and try to be aware of it, conscious of it in myself.
But look around. Take note. Then take that note home to yourself.
Do you WORK to avoid that which is your weakness, to climb over that, or do you live in denial?
