You must not desire your fellow’s house.
G-d provides each of us with all the resources–possessions, talents, and strengths–that we require to fulfill our unique mission in life. We each achieve our ultimate fulfillment by dedicating these resources to our Divine mission and utilizing them to heighten the awareness of G-d in the world.
Any resources that G-d has not provided us with at any given moment are thus not necessary for fulfilling our mission, and in fact sidetrack us from the development of our fullest potential.
Reflecting on this truth will cure us of any envy.
