    I have heard "whatever bakes your cake" too, but I don't know if that was just another invented version of "whatever tickles your fancy" etc.

    I didn't realise there were so many lol!

    You're looking for similes on metaphors which, whether you realize it or not, are likely to obscure the truth you are seeking instead of clarifying or exposing it. Nonetheless, you might consider the desirability of something like: we're all on a quest for freedom that will allow us to be like the proverbial feather in the wind which enables us to enjoy the trip no matter where the wind takes us. Yes, this is a little complicated, but take it to heart and then your head and you'll be surprised if you're able to realize its impact.
