The fourth immeasurable is open-hearted joy. What we are appreciating is the happiness someone else is experiencing. With this quality we feel real joy at their happiness. This practice is the perfect antidote for envy and it deals a killer blow to jealousy and pride.
Happiness is fleeting, so to begrudge what little joy people can find in their lives is a very unkind quality. What we need to do is rejoice when happiness comes another’s way.
