How effective is the jealousy of others in our progress or backwardness?

Why can the jealousy of others cause us fear, pessimism, indifference, anger, and negative emotions? Why should we be affected by this negative and often deterrent feeling?

Eugene speaks of the enmity and jealousy of others that he fears. Yes! The jealousy of others sometimes becomes very deterrent and destructive and changes the course of our lives and destiny ...

But when we accept that the greater power rules this destiny or this universe, then we should not be influenced by bad behaviors caused by the jealousy of others ...

Because the train of destiny has to reach its destination, I say with confidence that it will arrive, and if we are going to die, we will die and we must accept that our role in this world as a living human being has been determined for a certain period of time.


The most successful and unsuccessful human beings must accept that the time defined for them in this world is a fixed period, and therefore one should try to make the best use of it.

But I have to say about the enemies and the jealous, yes, we have to be careful of their evils, but if we progress and do bigger things, we will face stronger jealousy and enmity, We may be happy that our jealousies and enemies are stronger and more famous people, But in my opinion, nothing reduces the humiliation of the thoughts of jealous people. Because usually, an honest and healthy person does not succumb to jealousy which is really a humiliating and stupid behavior.

In any case, we must try to choose the right path and walk in it and be persistent and not let the rivals and jealousy of our rivals make us regret and fear. Because according to my personal beliefs and experiences, the great God, who is the creator of the world and phenomenon, distinguishes between good and evil and triumphs good over evil... and Evil means jealousy, lying, greed, and hurting and violating the rights of others.

But Eugene, my dear friend, and artist ... He is an admirable artist and I admire him the most because he works in the Conceptual style and allows the audience to use their thoughts and interpret the work of art.

I take this opportunity to wish my artist friend Nasser FaizullahBegi, who lives in Iranian Kurdistan, success. He works in the field of conceptual art and has his own views on art, painting, and artistic phenomena.

Finally, I wish Eugene, my dear friend success and happiness.



Thank you!
