Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

The principal cause of psychological disintegration is envy which sometimes manifests itself in exquisitely subtle and delicious ways.

Envy is multifaceted and there are thousands of reasons to justify it. Envy is the secret spring of the whole social machinery. Idiots delight in justifying envy.

A rich man envies the rich and wants to be richer. Poor people envy the rich and want to be rich too. He who writes envies people who write and wants to write better. He who has much experience envies the one who has more experience and desires to have more than him.

People are not satisfied with bread, clothing and shelter. The secret spring of envy for someone else's car, house, suit, money, etc., produces desires of bettering oneself, acquiring more and more things, dresses, suits, virtues, so as not to be less than others, etc.
The most tragic thing of all this is that the cumulative process of experiences, virtues, things, money, etc., strengthens the pluralized Ego, intensifying them the intimate contradictions, the horrifying wounds and cruel battles within us.

All that is pain and cannot bring true joy to the grieving heart, all it produces is and increase of cruelty in our psyche, a multiplication of pain, discontent, each time more profound.

The pluralized EGO always finds justifications even for the worst of crimes and to that process of envying, acquiring, accumulating, obtaining, even when it is at the expense of others work, is called evolution, progress, advancement, etc.

People have their Conscience asleep and do not realize that they are envious, cruel, covetous and jealous and when for some reason they do realize all this, they justify themselves, they condemn and search for evasions but do not understand.

Envy is difficult to discover due to the concrete fact that the human mind is envious. The structure of the mind is based on envy and acquisition.

Envy begins at school desks. We envy the best intelligence of our classmates, the best grades, the best suits, the best dresses, best shoes, best bicycle, etc.

The teachers who are called to mould the personality of pupils should understand what the infinite processes of envy are and establish within the psyche of their students an adequate foundation for understanding.

The mind, envious by nature, only thinks in the function of more. I can explain better, I have more knowledge, I am more intelligent, I have more virtues, more sanctifications, more perfections, more evolution, etc.

All the functionalisms of the mind are based on "more". The more is the intimate secret spring of envy.

More is the comparative process of the mind. All comparative processes are abominable. For example: I am more intelligent than you, so and so is more virtuous than you, so and so is better that you, wiser, kinder, more beautiful, etc.

The more creates time. The PLURALIZED EGO, needs time to be better than the neighbor, to demonstrate to the family that he is very genial and can be someone in life, to show his enemies or those whom he envies that he is more intelligent, more powerful, stronger, etc.

Comparative thinking is based on envy and produces that which is called discontent, uneasiness, bitterness.

Unfortunately, people go from one opposite to another opposite, from one extreme to another. They do not know how to walk along the center. Many struggle against discontent, envy, covetousness, jealousy, but the struggle against discontent never brings true joy to the heart.

It is urgent to understand that the true joy of the tranquil heart is not bought or sold and that it is only born in us with absolute naturalness and in a spontaneous way when we have understood in depth the very causes of discontent, jealousy, envy, covetousness, etc.

Those who want to obtain money, a magnificent social position, virtues, satisfactions of all types, etc., with the purpose of obtaining true contentment are totally mistaken because all of that is based on envy and the path of envy can never lead us to the harbor of a tranquil and contented heart.

The mind imprisoned in the PLURALIZED EGO makes a virtue of envy and even gives itself the luxury of putting delicious name on it, such as, progress, evolution, the longing for improvement, the struggle for dignity, etc.

All of this produces disintegration, intimate contradictions, secret struggles, problems with difficult solutions, etc.

It is difficult to find in life someone who is truly integral in the most complete sense of the word.

It is totally impossible to obtain total integration while the PLURALIZED EGO exists within us.

It is urgent to understand that within each person exists three basic: factors First, Personality; Second, The Pluralized Ego; Third, The psychic material, that is, the very ESSENCE of the person.

The PLURALIZED EGO clumsily wastes the psychological material in atomic explosions of envy, jealousy, greed, etc. It is necessary to dissolve the pluralized ego with the purpose of accumulating within the psychic material for establishing a permanent center of Conscience in our interior.

Whoever does not possess a permanent center of Conscience cannot be integral.

Only a permanent center of Conscience gives us true individuality.

Only a permanent Centre of Conscience makes us integral.
