The Dude climbed up a molehill and came down a mountain.  Upon his descent, he held aloft two half and half containers, (or would that be one whole container?).  Upon them, instructions of the Dude Way was written.  Upon the first it said: "Take 'Er Easy".  Upon the second it said: "Abide".

And lo, although the check was postdated, it was good.

Thats' a fine pair of testaments right there. I wonder if occasionally "stickin' it to the man" is also down there somewhere? Lemme take another look.

"What makes a Dude?  Is it being prepared to do the right thing, whatever the cost? Isn't that what makes a Dude?"
"Hmmm...sure, that and a pair of testaments."

;D
I don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way

I initially dug Dudeism for the Humor of it. The Irony.
But what I have found is that being a Dudeist does translate into real world benefits.
I work in an environment where the "TODO" list is never ending.
Work hard and more shit will pile up. Work harder and people will just see your pile as needing more shit.
Once I said "Fuck it!  I can't be worrying about that shit.  Life goes on!" things got a lot easier.
I move at my own pace and with an attitude that "it'll be done when it's done" people generally stay out of my shit more, not less. People are actually more satisfied where as before everybody always wanted more and more.
It's like once you have the stink of the Dude on you they know not to bug you. And it's not JUST the Dude. there have been others throughout the years. Each generation has it's Dude. In that way the Dude has always been with us.

Practically speaking, as I see it we generally act by putting the cart before the horse in how we deal with stress.
We try to do stuff to get past the stress. We think that "if I can just bla bla bla then I'll be fine".
"Wouldn't it be great if bla bla". Once you go down that road it never ends. It's always 2 steps ahead.
Fuck it! That's our answer for everything! Tattoo it on your forehead!

I am in the process of starting the first Scottish Cantheist sect of the Church of the latter day Dude. During service white Russians and White Widow will be taken together in in sacrament.

I think the important thing is to be your own "dude".  We all can't be Jeff Lebowski but we can all be the Dude by embracing the concept of the "rug that ties the room together".  Be your own Dude and find your own special rug or beverage that enhances the Dude that is within.    My own personal example is that I don't drink a White Russian, my special beverage of choice?  Peach Tea.  It really ties the beverages together.  :).

I have to agree with all or most of what's said about being a Dude... But I think it's equally important that "being" is about how we abide others in their "being"... as far as it does not attempt to affect our Dudeism. Being able to dig and find value (even if it's just seeing it from their perspective as it fits for them) in their style without disrespecting it.

Abiding and moving along your trajectory... sharing what works for you without intent or requirement for others to follow it. Listening to what works for others and taking what will work for you and giving credit where credit is due.
~ Rev/Guro Christian Dude

"Dudeism is the outward expression of how we interact with the world and the dudes we encounter... The inner way we ruminate and allow things to affect our lives and atta-dude... Abiding."
