Like dying of thirst and thinking the ocean will save you.

I have not read one person of the new trend in mindfulness that actually meditates. Sitting quietly and still (most can't even do that) is not meditating.
You are not meditating until you can answer the question, "who is it that is meditating". If you answer the question you are wrong by definition.
The point we are at is a tipping point in the conceptualization and definition on a large public scale about meditation.
We yogis have been saying forever, there is no meditation, nothing to meditate on and no one to meditate.
There is only how you choose to live your life. For what purpose you live your life and where you abide. Are you abiding in work, your friends, your car, phone, coffee, electric cigarette, yoga studio? Where are you, what are you doing with your life?
Don't waste it thinking you are meditating because you are just deluding yourself further.
Stop deluding yourself and meditation is the natural result

There is only compassion.
Kindness, caring, a willingness to suffer together.
If suffering together is included in being compassionate and we desire to be compassionate beings then we will never transcend suffering.
Compassion is doing whatever you have to do to end your suffering.
Ending your own suffering is the best thing you can do for me. Suffering with me just makes us both worse.
Heh. True. Willingness to suffer together is not suffering together.
But I like your definition that compassion means deliberately ending your suffering.
