“God is a Jealous God” means that God (our Soul) needs to be needed by us (our Self).
Once we know that we need our Soul, we understand the purpose of our Soul, and we get that the purpose of our Self is to follow the vision of our Soul.
The Soul needs the Self to undertake the mission. The Self needs the Soul to hold the vision.
The Soul and the Self seek a common purpose where the mission of the Self is aligned with the vision of the Soul.
The Self is always cared for by the Soul, once the Self knows that the Soul always cares.
When the Self takes care of its self, without consulting the Soul, it does not need the soul but needs other people instead.
When disconnected from the Soul, the Self needs to be cared for by other people and needs to be needed by other people.
Even an unawakened soul knows in its deepest sub-conscious that it needs union with another, because that is its natural state of Being – in union with everything.
When we know that our true union is between the Soul and the Self, we become truly inter-developmental. Only the Soul can facilitate the development of our Self and only our Self can accomplish the personal spiritual growth of our Soul.
