I’m not your lover. I’m not your friend. I’m something that you’ll never comprehend.” – Prince Rogers Nelson
Disclaimer: Jonesitis is a terrible disease. In most cases, people suffer from envy, low self-esteem, comparing themselves to others and procrastination. Many people are troubled from this ailment daily, but have been undiagnosed for many years. The only known cure for Jonesitis is to become more self-aware of the individual beauty that one possess.
There is a sadness that comes with acknowledging that I am created in the likeness of God- meaning there is a piece of God within me that makes me a god. Stepping into the knowledge that I can think a certain way and be able to connect with my immediate environment and change the climate is quite heavy. With this knowledge I have the power to feel a certain way.
Jealousy can be an ugly thing when you crave attention. Low self-esteem can cause you to feel unworthy of the love and acceptance that we desperately seek.
Dig if you will the picture:
You have a lover that stays three states away. He/She visits sporadically and you also talk on the phone sporadically. During all of these spasms of warm fluffy feelings you have gentlemen/ladies more than willing to pacify your affinity for attention…. You, suffering from Jonesitis, have a chance to not give into your cravings but actually try to ween yourself off of your temporary high of feeling loved…..
What’s a dinosaur to do when there are kids on the ice?
I reckon this angst is how the Supreme Creators feel when we become negligent towards Them. It seems as if everything is more important- work,money, fashion, friends, lovers, children, pets, jabberwockies. We are constantly texting, blogging, Facebook-ing, picking our noses that we tend to forget to say “Thank you”.
Thank you for another day of life. Thank you for a nose to pick. Thank you for the strength to carry on now that Prince is dead. Thank you for the ability to write.
Jealousy is unoccupied time. It is never too late to depend on the God who created us to acknowledge the god within us. Taking time to acknowledge this Presence may cause us to make choices out of necessity instead of disparity. The longing for love is the Supreme Creators’ way of telling the creators in us that They are with us and around us and They need to be acknowledged.
We cannot control how others will divvy out their love towards us but we can rest assured that Supreme Love will never end.
