okay / not okay / neither

She has obliterated the illusions of "okay" and "not okay." The idea of "okay" ignores the reality of change. If things are "okay," they won't be later. If things aren't "okay," those things are going to change. The impression of "static" states like "okay" and "good" are illusions. She doesn't get too excited about a happy circumstance, and she doesn't get too dejected by "setbacks."

compassion

The "improving" of her "self" is "reward" enough; but there is no one there to improve, and that "self" that does not exist does not need a reward. There is simply more understanding in a brain that has practiced realizing these things.

She is not practicing to change the world. The world is going to change no matter what, since change is constant. She Practices with no expectation of reward. But the Understanding happens, and after that, Compassion for others.
