Do The Gods Get Jealous of One Another? {Newbie Question}

Do The Gods Get Jealous of One Another? {Newbie Question} August 20, 2015

Someone recently asked me this question and it really surprised me. It’s not something that ever occurred to me. But I can see what she meant. Like if one God has more worshipers than another do they rub it in each other’s faces?

At first this seemed pretty ridiculous to me. But then I thought about all the stories and myths around the Gods and some of those stories do involve competitiveness and one-upmanship.

At first I think that since all Gods are in reality One then it doesn’t make sense for them to be jealous of one another. But then I think we as human beings are all One also, part of the same One as the Gods, and we feel petty and jealous and competitive all the time!

So maybe it is part of maya that even Gods compete with one another to some extent.

What do you think? Do the Gods get jealous of one another?
