Seven, I don't think you'll get the rational answer for why there is evil. I admit that. Those posts I gave were in reference to this:
From the evil of the world there is no escape into harmony, balance, reason, acceptance, resolution or understanding. Not through scholastic reasoning, not through mystical experiences.
For a young woman, dying a painful death due to tb, there was and escape into harmony, balance, reason, acceptance, resolution and understanding. For a man who was confronted with Nazism and the prospect of a suffering and death he didn't deserve there was harmony, balance, reason, acceptance, resolution and understanding. For the Christian monks who found themselves in a war zone where death was imminent they found harmony, balance, reason, acceptance, resolution and understanding.
Ok, nookle here's a Christian writer explaining Buddhist detachment. But this is Christian theology, not Buddhist.
When with tears and anguish and pain you have said goodbye to everything you will find that you have lost nothing. You have not said goodbye to your friends: you have said goodbye to clinging and attachment to your friends. You have not said goodbye to memories: you have said goodbye to clinging and attachment to memories. You have not said goodbye to the good things of this world: you have said goodbye to clinging and attachment to the good things of this world. You have not said goodbye to knowing and rationality: you have said goodbye to clinging and attachment to knowing and rationality. You have not said goodbye to doctrines and dogma: you have said goodbye to clinging and attachment to doctrines and dogma. And so for all good things. Now you can resonate with Paul who wrote "Finally, brethern, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, thing about these things." (Philippians 4:8) For all things are yours; and you are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
This is enlightenment. Liberated from addictions and enslaving needs (yes, even those which dwelt in your unconscious and tortured you), you will gradually come to an inner freedom that brings intense joy. You will experience morments or periods of joy like that man who sold everything to buy that field in which lay buried the treasure. Or yours will be the joy of the merchant who found a pearl of great price: the joy of all those stange and wonderful people who laughed when they possessed nothing -- only God. Their security was in having no security. You will find that you are becoming more spontaneous, more human, more alive. Now you can laugh and cry and sing and dance without those constricting inhibitions that formerly cramped your style. For now you have become your true self. In losing the little, separate ego you have found the true self which is one with the flowers of the field and the birds of the air, one with the poor and the sick and the suffering, one with the universe, one with God himself.
And now you can love. You can love father and mother and brethern and wife and family -- even your own life you can love. You may find for the first time you are capable of authentic friendship. For now you love your friends not for the security they give you but for what they are in themselves. Now you may find that you love everyone you meet in the street or on the bus. Like Paul you have become all things to all men and women.

So Buddhism would phrase it differently but the detachment/love idea is in there.
