>Probably because that's really something Korra has to figure out on her own when it comes to the finer details. Like, she was probably told shit like, "you're the Avatar, you use your bending and status to keep the peace", but not told how to handle more grey situations like the Civil War, because when it boils down to it it's really up to her.
Again that logic only works if the White Lotus is inept. There's a ton of moral theories regarding how to determine what's right and wrong, so the White Lotus could easily have given Korra advice regarding how to resolve grey areas. They also should have taught Korra when to not get involved with conflicts.

Again Korra already knew that she can make mistakes and can't prepare for everything because she's already made mistakes and learned from them, such as when she challenged Amon to a fight in season 1 and lost. Korra already knew that Avatars aren't perfect so she wouldn't have learned this lesson from watching Wan's life.
>Keep in mind, for the 13 years Korra stayed in that compound she couldn't tap into her spiritual side at all. Then she leaves the compound, she gets out and sees a PART of the world and it only takes, what, three or four months and bam, she tapped into her spiritual side.
Korra started getting visions from Aang because he was trying to tell her that Amon was related to Yakon. Korra then discovered this connection by meditating, not by exploring more of Republic City or by researching what happened in the past. So exploring the world has little influence of Korra's spiritual training.
Had Amon come to the South Pole instead of Republic City then Korra would have had the same spiritual awakening w
