Advice on Fear and Jealousy

I spoke earlier about the four Brahmaviharas.  I think when we have a certain level of freedom, we’re available to whatever life brings us, and I think that availability is a kind of empathy.  So, if I’m caught up in my own fears and desires, I certainly have to work on them.  As you begin to let go of fear and process fear and purify fear, then the heart is obviously much more in touch.
