In a competitive world, these 4 groups of emotions are needed. They are not accidental. They serve the purpose of survival.

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves."

Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher. By Simran Khurana (Updated March 18, 2017)

Love, envy, hatred, and revenge are part of two parallel energetic cycles manifested by the 4 phases of life. (Stimulation, Expansion, Contraction, Relaxation. Common to all organisms.)

  • Love is a synchronized flow of life-force energy throughout the four phases of life. The negative emotions (envy, hatred, and revenge) result from a life-force energy block in one or more of the 4  phases of life due to a mismatch in interpersonal interaction. (Inevitable phenomenon)
  • The four groups of emotions serve explicit purposes; they are synchronized with the energy of life. Negative emotions are the other side of the same coin.

The energetic dimension naturally has a translation of different chemicals. It is more convenient for us to think of neurotransmitters or hormones that provoke envy, hatred, or revenge but are a mirror image of an energetic state.

  • Love- Love charges the energy of life, and it exists when there are no energetic blockages. Without love, people are often unhealthy and unhappy.
  • Envy - Although jealousy is perceived as a "bad" thing, it is the primary basis for competition and improving motivation. As in the other negative emotions, jealousy stems from losing control and blind jealousy that turns into hatred and revenge.
  • Hatred- Hate is a warning mechanism - do not come near - you may harm yourself and me. Hate is a powerful emotion, often even more so than love.
  • Revenge - Revenge is a defense mechanism against possible harm by any attacker; the problem is that sometimes revenge goes out of proportion and connects to hatred and envy. A good example can be found in Quentin Tarantino's revenge films.

You will find similar stories in different versions about love, envy, hatred, and revenge in all religions and cultures.

  • The energetic blockages gradually shift to the subconscious, where routine psychological treatments can not penetrate. Forgiveness, mercy, and absolution require extraordinary transcendence that often requires spiritual "enlightenment."
  • Envy, hatred, revenge is evidence of energy blockage. This is an almost inevitable phenomenon, but it severely harms our health.
  • If you look at developed mammals, you can detect the same four groups of emotions: love, envy, hatred, and revenge. 


The mental and health damage created as a result of negative emotions was already known 2500 years ago. Confucius' quote reflects this excellently.

Negative emotions disrupt our energy flow; the reason we try to stay away from people who cause us negative emotions is apparent - they hurt our feelings and damage our health.
