Q.

Is there any predetermined quota of pleasure and comfort for everybody? If not, then does everyone earn it all by virtue of their competence? Then why jealousy?

I do not think there is predetermined quota of pleasure and comfort for everybody. One has to earn it. Jealousy is inborn in all living beings. We are born jealous but we can control it.

First of all pleasure and comfort are very relative for individuals ........for the sake of argument , even if we relate to money, then u r right that everyone earn it all by virtue of their competence because if we are born poor , it is not our fault but if we die miniature it us our fault only .............And Jealousy is just a disease ......a mental cancer ............. no way related to pleasure and comfort unless they are compared to others ........podoshi sukhi tho admi dukhi :))

In life everyone has own share of joys and sorrows. Some have bigger pies than others. Jealousy happens only when we start comparing with others. If we can practice remaining satisfied with what we have rather than worrying about what we don't have, such jealous feelings will cease to exist :)

Pleasure and Comfort is not an universal constant. . It varies from person to person. What may give pleasure or comfort to one individual may not be the source of pleasure for someone else. What has given pleasure or comfort to a person at a given point of time may not give pleasure or comfort to that individual at a different point of time The target for pleasure is not fixed externally but internally by each individual. A student who aspires to just pass through an exam will find pleasure in just passing. He is not bothered about how much he has scored. On the other hand if the same person had set a target to get say at least 90% then even if he marginally falls short of that target he will feel miserable. When we meet our target (irrespective of the level of target) we feel good and comfortable. When we achieve below our set target we feel bad. Jealousy at others success does not generally come when the target are of a lower level or there is no comparison of achievement is possibl ...more
