Have u ever tried getting the coal ready for a grill? (Yes its the most relevant question 🙂 )
1. Make a pile of coal in the grill.
2. Light 3-4 ignite bars placed in different areas in the pile.
3. Wait for ignite bars to burn and let coal catch fire to turn red evenly.
And you are ready to grill.
Even though the process is simple but it’s not easy and almost 90% of the time it fails. Either coal will not burn or we need to use more ignite bars etc.
And guess which step is most difficult? Step 3. Yes, waiting for 20 minutes without doing anything is impossible. We will either try and shift the coal or move ignite bars or try to give more air etc.
Offcourse with practice, we learn that leaving the coal with igniting bars without doing anything is the best way to burn it quickly and evenly.
So why can’t we just let it be? Why do we always complicate things instead of taking the simplest path “Occam’s Razor – simpler solutions are more likely to be correct than complex ones”
There are numerous like this when we overdo things and make it much more complex than it is. Why can’t we just “Let it be”. Is it because our life is no longer simple anymore and hence we don’t believe in simple things in life. If things are complicated we like it, we like the thrill and excitement of it!
Whereas more we think we are getting better at life and take steps to make it simple, the more it gets complex and hence our thought process always things about complexities.
But some times, some things in life works best when “Letting it be” and works in our best interests. So let’s try “Let it be” and hope for the bests!
