B is for Buddha and Baudrillard

Dealing with obstacles...
In this instance a giant potato.

1. Complain about the obstacle, and canvas others to confirm it is indeed an obstacle.

2. Try and get the obstacle to submit to your will.

Give up. Submit to the obstacle.

Remove the obstacle's power. By not recognising the giant potato as an obstacle it's no longer an obstacle.

Once we lose the fear of systems, conventions, giant potatoes or obstacles, they lose the hold they have over us.
