I found it interesting that the word zealous automatically made me think of the word jealous. One is a very positive action, while the other is very negative emotion.
You could have someone that was zealously jealous. Taking extreme actions to express their emotionally jealousy.
But I am not sure you could have someone that was jealously zealous. This seems that someone is still showing zealous actions but expressing in a jealous way.
I would suggest avoiding both types of person as being somewhat unbalanced.
One of our tours in New Dehli was the Bahai House of Worship, also known as the Lotus Temple. This was completed in 1986 and serves as the Mother Temple. CNN reported it as the most visited building in the world in 2015 with perhaps 4 million visits per year.
There appears to be over 2 million Bahai worshipers in India at this time. We managed to get in just as they were finishing a service. The singing was quite sublime.
I am not sure most would agree with the following statement, but some of the research shows that the growth of the Bahai Faith in India has been greatly assisted by the recognition of Krishna as a Messenger or Manifestation of God, alongside Jesus, Muhammad, Zarathustra and Baha u llah himself.
I was just reading a posting from Ramblings from Retirement which I just re-posted below. So many things struck home. His comment about how tea came in one flavour, tea flavour. My favorite was some of the difficulties in connecting his new type of TV to his system.
My favorite tea is now a white tea called Buddha’s blend. A series of different flavours combined with things that were never considered tea in the past.
I realized that life now comes with a lot more in the way of instructions than it ever did before. That level of complexity appears to be necessary in order to achieve this retiring life of simplicity we are now aiming for. Thoreau said ‘simplify, simplify, but I don’t think we can get there from here anymore.

Sunday Mrs M made reference over a meal with family how I used to be merely a carrots and peas person before I met her. That is totally true. It got me thinking how much simpler food was back in the sixties when vegetable options such as mange tout and broccoli were not even heard […]

Here I am at Winnipeg’s new Material Recovery Facility, or MURF, wearing all of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment or PPE. I’m the one wearing the white hard hat and orange vest. This was all part of the field tour for the Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Board that I sit on.
At the end of the tour we can see how the various items are bailed up and ready to be sent out. The recovery rate is improving, but still a portion ends up in the landfill.
We still need a major emphasis on the reduce, reuse part, and then we finally recycle.

We just came back from our favorite Indian restaurant here in Winnipeg. My favorite deserts are the gulab jamum.
Here, milk and cheese solids are prepared by heating milk till the water content has evaporated. The remaining milk solids, known as khoya are kneaded into a dough, with a small amount of flour. They are shaped into small heavenly balls and deep-fried in oil or ghee till they get to a golden brown color. The fried balls are then soaked in a light sugar syrup and flavored with green cardamon.
Rare is the time that I eat so much that I begin to hate myself. But after finishing a few gulab jamun, I began hating the happy couple beside us.
