Hey, uh.. I'm Edward, from the Great White North. Been kinda hanging out and checking in here every once in a while(the plight of Dudeist marriage officiating in Canada interests me, yea?), but stayed away from the forum profile and stuff. Just never got around to it, yanno?

Was ordained in August 2012, I think.

So, uh.. hello!

I've recently become an ordained Dudeist Priest. I've read the abide guide and it's really tying my room together. The majority of viewpoints and philosophies fit right in with the ethos I have always had.
However, I've noticed a couple of things in general. First of all, a lot of the comments on the facebook page and indeed on this forum, seem to come from people who view Dudeism as a joke religion. Indeed, some of the comments seem to be pretty much undude.
Secondly, some of those revered as Great Dudes in History could never be described as lazy. Sure, they may have taken it easy and promoted an ethos of doing the right thing and treating people right, but they were clearly high achievers in whatever they set out to do.
I'd be interested to hear the views of some other practicing Dudes on these matters. It's just, like, my opinion man. Discuss.  :)

1. I wouldn't worry about that shit. Just like any other religion you can take Dudeism as seriously or non seriously as you desire to, no ones really stopping you or the other posters. Dudeism, as far as I can tell does not really take itself seriously anyway, you won't find a lot of us out evangelizing others to our cause because whats a cause? Also what might be adding to your confusion is that the goal of Dudeism isn't necessarily to become more like The Dude from the movie, rather it's to life your life true to yourself while enjoying the ups and downs of life together with good friends or what have you. And not everyone is as passive and easygoing as the Dude, some are. But others are more heavy on the Walter side, while others might be more like Maude or Donny, or a Nihilist. It is much more like Taoism in that it's got that whole ying yang and non duality thing going on.

2. I think my point from number one applies here as well. Those great Dudes of history may have been achievers but they were true to who they were, the only difference between a great dude in history and a regular dude as far as I can tell is the the great dudes affected many people with their dudeness.

Hiya RB, and Lostsoul! Good to have you guys here, welcome :)

And by the by, RB - I wouldn't worry so much about what Dudeism means to other people. Just what it means to you. There is all kinds of uptight thinking stapled to some words (like "lazy"). Many hard workers and great achievers have been considered lazy by others, for simply not having the same goals.

G'day dudes,

I just signed up here and wanted to come and say hi since that seemed like the most polite thing to do.

I discovered Dudeism after watching The Big Lebowski again and searching for some Lebowski inspirational quotes online, since I wanted to be a bit more Dude in general (and a lot less Walter) for reasons of life pressure/stress.

I like to ride motorbikes, and taking it easy, hence the name.

I'd type more but it's starting to feel like a hassle, so I'll leave it there.

Cheers,
EasyRider
