The problem with surrender is that it doesn’t make sense. To wit: Resist nothing. Make friends with what happens. Say “yes” to what is. I mean, c’mon.
The cloven hoof is not Satan’s extremity; it’s the mind split by like/dislike.
Resist not evil. This means, everything that happens in life, happens for the best. It means that the distinction between good and evil is a false distinction. Taekwondo makes this teaching less abstract.
The state of the world is not a problem. Fear of the state of the world—that is the problem.
A problem cannot be solved at the level of the problem. Fear cannot fix what fear has created.
Ancients understood fear as the ‘knowledge’ of good and evil. It’s why we have war.
