At a certain point, you develop a genuine aspiration to get rid of the wall—the separation between you and others. However, you should not think in terms of having to fight with and defeat these problems. Furthermore, you should not develop the idea of being on a battlefield, because this just solidifies the problems. In relationship to this situation, the martial arts are quite interesting, because of their way of dealing with problems and exercising the real art of war.
