Envy, which has it roots in selfishness, whereby a person has something your desire and you wish to have it for yourself is a character trait that we are on earth to learn to remove. Only when there are more souls on earth who live by the Golden Rule, who don’t fall to the baser emotions of hate, envy and revenge will the earth commence its great climb from a planet of atonement to a planet of regeneration.
Envy has been with us since humans gathered in tribes. A story from the times of Athens, after the Greeks defeated the Persians at the battle of Marathon illustrates the harm that envy can bring. One of the generals who led the Athenians to victory was called Aristides the Just.
In Athens, a person could be banished if six thousand citizens voted to remove him from the city. Aristides’ main opponent, Themistocles arranged to have a vote to banish Aristides. Aristides, who had always acted nobly and fair to all, walk amongst the crowd. A farmer stopped him, without knowing who he was. The farmer didn’t know how to read or write so he asked Aristides to write his vote down for him.
“What name shall I write?” questioned Aristides.
“Oh, put down ‘Aristides,'” answered the farmer.
“Why do you want him sent away? Has he ever done you any harm?” asked Aristides.
“No,” said the farmer, “but I’m tired of hearing him called the just.”
Without saying another word, Aristides calmly wrote his own name on the shell. When the votes were counted, they found six thousand votes against him: so Aristides the Just was forced to leave his native city and go away into exile.
Nothing has changed in the 2,500 years since the time of Ancient Greece, people are still moved by politicians by motives of greed and envy, instead of what is just and good.
