Abstinence Makes The Belly Bigger GADFLY | October 16th, 2021 By Ed Raymond,[].

I did not want to begin this morning page addressed to my UND colleague again. He has not responded to my last emails and do I pick on little brother, who bless his soul, is often not much better. I finally decided to share my MP first with the FCHS Class– let’s see if they can find any energy to react. Here is the issue, I become envious this morning when I read Ed Raymond HPR column, wishing I could write so much as he does. Writing has changed from FCHS English & typing classes. Now we have Internet, Google, Wikipedia access just a click away. I often seek a deeper understanding of words like envious and will hyperlink them, read and study them in order to write a fuller and sexy essay – well, I am not sure about sexy.

Envy (from Latin invidia) is an emotion which occurs when a person lacks another’s superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it.[1] Aristotle defined envy as pain at the sight of another’s good fortune, stirred by “those who have what we ought to have”.[2] Bertrand Russell said that envy was one of the most potent causes of unhappiness.[3]  Recent research has focused on envy in the workplace, considering the conditions under which it occurs, how people deal with it, and whether it can inspire people to emulate those they envy.[4][5]

In reading this Wiki definition I do not feel that I “wish that Ed lacks his superior quality”. I sense Ed is showing me what I want in myself. Of course, this is an important quality in a good teacher, which Ed is! The research reported in this definition was done in corporations studying “how people deal with envy, and whether it can inspire people to emulate those they envy”. And yes, we do know Kapitalism: Its Nature.

Interesting, this is what Ed’s writing is doing to me right now! The main point is how can Ed’s writing gift help me? Well, I will begin by reading these two references. And as Arnold says, I’ll be back. Wow, I just now experienced what is going on here this morning as synchronistic, []. I am sensing the concept of synchronicity is central to what is coming – I will need to re-examine it as a peak experience. Another look at the concept synchronicity is now needed.
