Divine abiding
#2
The result of practising the Brahmavihāra is rebirth in the Brahma realms. These are far above the sensual realms so I don't think emotions have much to do with them.

The near enemy of compassion is grief, and the near enemy of loving-kindness is lust.


Quote:“For this is the escape from ill will (byāpādassa), friends, that is to say, the mind-deliverance of loving-kindness … For this is the escape from cruelty (vihesāya), friends, that is to say, the mind-deliverance of compassion … For this is the escape from disinterest (aratiyā), friends, that is to say, the mind-deliverance of gladness … For this is the escape from lust (rāga), friends, that is to say, the mind-deliverance of equanimity” (D.iii.248).
