Awareness is Compassion

Shambhala SunIn the post-meditation experience or meditation-in-action, when you are working with situations, there is no time to analyze, no time to hold on. At the same time, there is a gap. There is no time to refer back to oneself as “I am doing this,” no time to relate with me or ego awareness at all. There is just simple awareness. That awareness is regarded as the heart of meditation in action. It is compassion.

From “Glimpses of Mahayana” in the current issue of the Shambhala Sun magazine, pages 68 to 69.
