Yeah...fuck it dudes...lets go bowling.8)

I think that statement... "Yeah...fuck it dudes...lets go bowling" ...should be one of the tenets of Dudeism.  ;D

Mark it 8 from me too. Anyway I used the term tenets because that's what my english allows me. Maybe there are better terms to use.

Db, I've lost a piece of your writing. Let me try to put things in another perspective:

"In short, let us not stink of dudeism and titles, but rather savor Dudeism while helping others do the same. A little burning of incense can be a blessing, too much and your room stinks."

Far out, this also leads that criticizing or blathering about people for names or titles or whatever has little to do with taking things easy. Imho.

Oak and the little tree. Beautiful story, but in reality I've never seen it happen, most of the times the oak says to the storm fuck it. If a storm is so strong to break a big oak it makes toothpicks of the little tree. The same goes for the stone, it depends from the stone, not all stones are equal, some are pretty hard. My head is sometimes.  ;D


The three qualities of a dude:

Don't be uptight
Abide
Take it easy

The three attitudes/characteristics of a dude:

He respects others' rug
A dude minds and sometimes draws a line in the sand
He doesn't roll on Shabbas

Life according to Dudeism:

Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes he eats you


Better then?  ;D


Anyway I still think, imho, that if someone doesn't aim to follow the three qualities of a dude not just with words but for real then he's not a dude. Being a dude means a pretty clear things. Otherwise with time we could end up with cleft assholes and uptight humanizers saying that they are dude. Hey, everyone can be a dude! Yes, if they follow or aim to follow dude/Dudeism guidelines.

Hoping not to seem uptight.  ;)

Oh, and if I seemed too uptight in my previous posts it's just because I care a lot about my beloved religion, sometimes too much maybe. No harm intended to anyone.

Anyone familiar with Thic Nhat Hahn's 14 precepts?

Instead of rules or commandments, we could model something like his precepts.

Small post, maybe redundant, trying to catch up here after Irene took my technology away for a while.

Unfair of you not to post a link there old boy:

http://www.tonglen.oceandrop.org/Thich_Nhat_Hahn_14_Precepts.htm.

I'd not seen these before (I will now wonder off and study them).

Thanks for the lead revgms.

Nicer link (better web page):

Thay, Thic's nickname, is an uber Dude, IMHO.

Yeah, too much work with the whole link thang, slacker ethos an all.

Far out, fabulous stuff. Now I'll go reading it and maybe take some notes. From the first two principles seems pretty good and useful. Thanks for the hint Rev.
