A small sample leads to a bigger sample, and a bigger sample leads to the consumption of almost half of the pan. I chose to fight my brownie urges instead of letting go and flowing with the process of desiring brownies. This notion to “let go and flow” is not one that implores people to engage in inappropriate or egregious behavior. This idea enables our minds to understand that we can do whatever we desire, activating the power of volition. When we know it is our choice, we are more prone to make positive and proactive decisions that improve our overall decision-making. I suggest we let go of our beliefs that we have enough self-control to stop engaging in our temptations. Our power does not derive from our knowing and ability to stop detrimental behaviors. Our power is generated from not knowing but acknowledging that our power originates from an inner spirit contrived at our conception.
This spirit does not try to prove its power by eschewing from damaging attitudes and behaviors; this spirit works its power by letting go of the past and any other negative emotions and flowing with love and the optimistic hope for positive outcomes in our present and future beings.
