Back to the Lanes
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:46:36 AM »
So I've been a, uh, member here for quite awhile but I haven't participated much because I'm lazy and easily distracted. The lazy part is a virtue in my book, but the easily distracted part can be, uh, problematic at times. But that's cool, that's cool.

I've been practicing Buddhism for about four years. Started with Soto Zen and joined an online Sangha. It was a pretty un-Dude place, so then I found another Zen teacher and he dropped me as a student for smoking a few bowls of green on my vacation in SoCal. I mean, come on, I was in Cali - how could I NOT smoke weed?

Then I kinda toured Buddhism for the next year, checking out the different sects and what have yous. Popped in on philosophical Taoism too - which I still really dig, especially Chuang-Tzu.

Finally settled on Chan Buddhism - which is Zen before it found its way to Japan. Had a teacher, but he was kinda confused and sorta lost in interest in teaching people.

After an enlightening experience a few weeks ago while cleaning a shit-stain from a toilet bowl (I'm a janitor), I slowly started dropping Buddhism and the Mahayana practices I was doing. Now I'm convinced that the world doesn't need some kinda grand metaphysics, it just needs to chill the hell out and that'd solve most of our problems.

A few months ago I started writing as a pen-name, Dude Lee Glazier, for the Tattooed Buddha - an online Buddhist, uh, publication thing. I'd already been writing and editing for them under the name John Author as well :D The Buddhist readers are really digging Dude Lee, my articles about Dudeism are consistently getting more views than the ones I write about Buddhism as John Author.

So now all of this is kinda converging into another one of those, "turning about" things that happen in life, ya know? I don't think I need Buddhism or Taoism - I need Dudeism which, in a lot of ways, is the perfect melding of them both with secular Western culture. Buddhism and Taoism can just get way too, uh, uh, uh, complex and they paradoxically give a lot of shit for the monkey mind to grab onto.

Anyway, just thought I'd share for no apparent reason. If ya catch John Lee in the FB group or Dude Lee's FB page, they're both me lol. Take 'er easy, Dudes.

Yeah man, I will definitely check it out.  I started down the path of Buddhism, the four noble truths are life changing.  The eightfold path takes a life altering dedication and for me personally is quite exhausting.  I don't think I wanna start the path only to fail miserably...that's why Dudeism fits me like a ten dollar rubber (one of my own personal Rev.Dave-ism's but feel free to use it)  Aw hell, I'm rambling, I will definitely check you out on fb and friend request you.
I'm calmer than you are

Far out Dude Lee. I am digging your pen name BTW. Bruce was an ordained Dudeist before us all.

I am the same. Whenever I dabble into Buddhism, Taoism, Mindfulness or what-have-you, my thinking paradoxically ends up getting more uptight than it was. I always end up coming back to Dudeism. It's like John Little says in his much recommended book on Bruce Lee's Philosphy The Warrior Within :

"Bruce Lee made the observation that any arresting of our conscious awareness on only one thought, aspect, subject, object, or focal point created a condition of 'psychical stoppage' [...] Such a segmented thought process, Lee believed, leads to a condition of hesitation or detachment from the now and thereby creates the potential for serious problems"

I actually love to get my inspiration from genuinely meaningful phrases said by actually wonderful men and women like “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation”, does one know wherever I'm able to find thematic compiltaions of those people?
