Recognize this truth. God is in all. When you hate another, you are hating the Lord. When you hate the Lord, you are hating yourself. When you inflict pain on another name, remember that the other is yourself, in another form with another name....Envy causes pain on those who are envied. When another's fortune is green, why should your eyes be red? Why get wild when another eats his fill?... Give up this vice of envy. Be happy when another is happy. That is more pleasing to the Lord than all the prayers you recite, all the flowers you heap on His picture or image, or even the hours you spend in silent meditation.

- Divine Discourse, Dec 24, 1980.
