Agree. But let me say that I see him as more correct in his own point of view, or wiser than me... You surely get the point man. Btw, I think that to define something as Taoist the word must have a kind of specific meaning, just like Dudeism. I mean even if Dudeism encompasses everything being a dude means a more or less clear thing. An 8 yo man cannot be considered a Dude while being existent it's still part of Tao (I used the pronoun it on purpose). Part of Tao but not Dudeist or Dude.I mean there should be a reason if something is Taoist and something else is Buddhist, or Shintoist. As for more or less total freedom of point of views ok but anything can either be Dudeist or not so this means that Dudeism is a specific thing, probably.Aren't we splitting hairs here compeer? As for the canonization even walking on water would be cool.
Quote from: Andrea Da Fino on September 25, 2011, 10:31:20 PMYou're surely right. Nevertheless Dudeism is based also on listening to the words of people wiser than ourselves, like the Dudely Llama. At least that's as I see it. Luckily he's not into either dogmas or dictates. Let's not feed Olivers ego too much here. I know he formulated the concept but let's not canonize him yet, he has to perform a number of Dudeist miracles, then his body should not decay when he is buried (yep got to be dead before you can be listed as canonized).Once the idea (Dudeism) became public domain it belongs to all of us. Which is what this forum is about. But no one person's viewpoint is correct. which is why I get a bit annoyed at people posting "This Is Dudeism.." or "I do this because it is a Dudeist thing.."I think this is where we fall down the hole of the western definition of "Religion" which is mostly based on the christian thing (erroneously). Where one must have rules and dogma in order to spot those that are in the religion and those that are not.Dudeism, based on Taoism, takes the Eastern idea that it is a way of life, a way of being in the world but not of the world.BTWQuote from: Zen Dog on September 15, 2011, 01:56:36 AM...Then,if growth is not stunted,we become adults....Not if I can bloody help it. I nearly disowned "The Godson From Hell" this weekend for suggesting I should be the "sensible" one.Grow old disgracefully.Better to see the world with the eyes of a child, than to exist childishly as petty, greedy, jealous, self centered individuals.
