Only how one/all is percieved by own being, is what counts.
I don't know 'Sönam'. When I see mistakenly ones by duality or there is all compassion (in no discrimination); up to my own perception only.
As Longchenpa said: "all experiences and appearances 'arise' in the mind but it is neither mind nor anything other than mind"; then own perception how all is only is the key and no question can add any clarity.

“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
