What makes a Dudeist, Mr. Lebowski? A pair of metaphysical suppositions....

Tend to agree with my compeer, Meekon. A few years back (about 10 years after that situation with that camelfucker in Iraq) I fell into Taoism with a dash of Zen (this was after my infamous Ayn Rand stage...well, at least it was an ethos).

Anyway, since i see dudeism through that lens, it's really a modernized retelling of the taoist,-zen tradition with maybe a little of the Greek Cynics, Epicureans and even a bit of The Jesus (the original Jesus..Not the compromised second draft)..especially the Gnostic Jesus (Gospel of Thomas). 

So I guess what I'm blathering about is that Dudeism is not a religion or belief system that stands alone.... more of a continuation or distillation (like a fine batch of Kahlua) of a valued human tapestry..very much like a rug that can be peed on by getting too uptight in thinking about it or even labeling (which is what I just did...).

BTW, do you find that watching TBL widened your vocabulary? Micturate? Compeer? etc.??

I like Dudeism because it fits so well with Do No Harm.
Abiding = Doing no harm
Doing no harm = Abiding.

There are not Answers.....there are only Choices.

Please...Do No Harm

It's a journey not a destination.
And it all starts and leads back to the movie.
I dig it because it exists on many levels. And there are lots and lots of ins and outs.

Anybody ever investigate Theodore Herzl?
Phenomenology. Wow.
"Will it and it is so." As Walter says.
It's not for no reason.
It's in there. The golden path. Lotta strands. Lotta ins and outs.
