The sword is a pretty standard Asian reference to the means of banishing delusion. Thus if you perceive truth, there is no delusion, ergo, no need to banish delusion, no need to draw a sword.
But isn't the last two words in the last sentence ( in haste) mean that the sword will be drawn but not in a hurried manner.?

Go ahead, tread on me.
