A brahmin once asked Buddha: "are you a God"
"No brahmin," said Buddha.
"Are you a saint?"
"No brahmin," said Buddha.
"Are you a magician?"
"No brahmin," said Buddha.
"What are you then?"
"I am awake," said Buddha.

God is the state of wakefulness, the kindom of heaven within, the state of being fully human in the here and now, abiding. When you are taking er' easy, you are not fighting reality, and reality is the Divine, and the Divine is unknowable, but for our limited perspectives. Reality was kind enough to let you manifest, you should return the favor, everything is part of reality, so when you pee on someones rugg, you are peeing on realities rugg, God's rugg. But when you indulge realities harmless eccentricities, and go to it's gaih dance recital, reality responds and let's you slide on the rent.

That, and there are so many ins and outs to the nature of existance, that there is likely no possible way for the few pounds of fat we carry around in our skulls will ever figure it out.

But that's like just my opinion, but if asked I would say that Dudeism does most closely resemble Taoism and other Eastern things, but that doesn't preclude followers of JC, since he did have that Dudely vibe, and for me it is only all the extra BS heaped on after that ruins what that great Dude tried to share with us. It is known that Buddhist monks were in the area at the time, and the Gnostic sects that followed Jesus have some pretty Eastern concepts.

Is it an external God revealation, or an inner experienced oneness?

Neither it's an internal Dude revelation.

Any principle that requires admiration isn't real.
Any God who requires worship doesn't exist.

And Catholic priests?........8yr olds dude.

For me I consider the line drawn at "I talked to God!", cause that is usually followed by; "an' he said to kill all the (blank)!" or "an' he said we all need to cut off the end of our dicks!"

Gnosis vs Revelation, insight vs delusion

I think that Dudes need to abide other Dudes as far as religion and God/god goes. I am happy to see a lack of reactionaries on this forum when it comes to this topic.

You got that right dude. Whether you roll strikes or gutter balls; whether you mark it 8 or zero, it's all about rolling the ball down the alley of life.

do we need a "personal" god, i.e. a god, who has a personality? is it one? or more? does that matter anyway?

Every fucking thing in this universe comes from the same First Thing, whatever that was. so every particle or part of energy and whatyouhave in the universe is a brother to all others, and that's cool, man.

besides, does our canon mention a god(ess)? if not, then every Dudette and Dude can believe in any deity she or he likes.

I'm still a Dudeist Pagan, I have loads of gods (I have pink gods, yellow gods, black gods....), but I stick with what I said earlier:

...Is it an external God revealation, or an inner experienced oneness?

Neither it's an internal Dude revelation.

I think you reach a point that you realise your a Dudeist through either reading about or seeing the film or other media.

The heavy influence of Taoism helped as well.

I don't feel that I became a Dudeist, it just gave me a convenient name to give everyone who needed a label to "understand" for their way of looking at the world. (not that I need a label because I have just been me for years now).

My gods are part of the way I understand myself, my Dudeism is part of the way I help other people understand me.

I don't know if there are any other 3 letters in sequence that mean so many different things to so many different people. I'm all about tolerance and diversity, really; as long as one doesn't think their god's instructing one to burn me alive or some such authoritarian bullshit because I don't believe what you do, it's all good.

I myself don't believe in a god with the qualities I usually hear about. You know, all-powerful, all-knowing, mega-benevolent, I don't see that squaring with the world. In fact I don't really believe in ghosts or spirits either, though I do sometimes feel something like a vibe from people. There's more to sentient life that just a few trillion atoms thrown together, me thinks. And there's always the earth, which is older than all of us, and will go on and on after we're all gone. That's purty mystic to me, which is why I think she should be treated well  ;D

I forgot to add my favorite quote about God by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Philosopher-Emperor: "Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
