Beautiful passage! Key phrase for me is: "... a gap was created in who I knew myself to be." No longer being lost in the conditioned illusions of egoic "self", and recognizing a better fit is available. And as she says: "... this same type of spaciousness can be cultivated in daily life." I would say this is perhaps the biggest benefit in meditation, participating in Awakin circles, worship, and most of what we label as "spiritual" activities. She calls that better fit: "Love", but it's beyond just transient personal emotion, or playing a role in life, which we use the same word "love" to describe. Lovingkindness that includes the aggressor as well as the victim and observer, without limitation. "Justification" has no part, yet rendering aid, and preventing further harm are different actions, each an expression of compassion (which IS that Love).
