Perception guides me, but will governs me. Is it possible for me to act against my will? With what force would I do so? I want to eat dessert but resist the urge. Why? Because I do not want to be overweight. I want to eat things that taste good, and I want to be healthy and attractive. My will resists itself because of external consequences recognized by my perception. I myself do not act against my will as if I were something outside of it.
