Spiritual Metrics

On learning news of my friends' new fortunes, I learn something of my own in the moment.  When they triumph, is my first instinct to cheer, or am I jealous?  When they fail, do I first share their pain, or do I feel smug satisfaction in knowing I've got it better?  The answers are a strong measure of my spiritual health.

Ok, I'll bite. What does that have to do with spirituality?

I think you're right - it really depends upon your spiritual and psychological health at the time. Hopefully for you, it's more often good than bad.

An even stronger measure is that you ask the question.
