Is "non-" usually prefixed to something to indicate the middle path of something? It's like getting our baggage or ideas of ourselves out of the way to just let that thing happen through us. For example, non-compassion.. is not being apathetic and not being overly showy about love (not real compassion) but truly being compassionate (like reaching for a pillow in the dark as Dogen would say)?

I don't know if I asked this clearly
