Embrace war and evil.

Sounds odd, yet to embrace them will aid in their removal. If you oppose them, you enforce them. Take them on board, consider them. It was someone who was against something who brought about war. So only those who embrace all can put an end to it.

There's some round-about reasoning, but sound, nonetheless.

You are right TaWan. One must embrace the battle...harmonize with it. Resistance only increases the conflict. (Read Chapter 10 in my book)

When you embrace the battle you are operating from a place of peace, not conflict or fear. This is a central concept in Budo (way of the warrior). In fact the deeper meaning of Budo is to 'cease the struggle'.

Yes, acceptance of what 'is', is liberation itself.
