January yin

Looking forward to sharing this space with a ginormous sangha. My questions about compassion are 1) does suffering always involve confusion and 2) can compassion fall equally on confusion and enlighted  3) does compassion for myself also require expectation, tough love?

I wonder if compassion can be both yin and yang (something tells me yes), and then, how do we perceive where to direct that yang movement?

Wishing you the space to practice,
