In Meditation in Action, Chogyam Trungpa teaches that meditation is based on trying to see what is, rather than trying to achieve a higher mental or physical state. Trungpa describes the life of the Buddha, emphasizing that, like the Buddha, we must find the truth for ourselves, rather than following someone else's example. Meditation in action might also be called working meditation, for it is not a retreat from the world. Rather, it builds the foundation for tremendous compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of a person's mind or behavior. There are six activities associated with meditation in action: generosity, discipline, patience, energy, clarity, and wisdom. Trungpa transcends the conventional understanding of these terms, showing how through simple, direct experience, one can attain real wisdom - the ability to see clearly into situations and to deal with them skillfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego.

An excellent guide to have on hand
If you're on your path to inner freedom, this book is a helpful guide. This is my second copy; I've kept a prior copy for over 30 years. The teachings have a way of continuing to inspire.
