That's a great quote from Kerouac.

The Dude cannot be insulted, because he has no ego.

Ahh yes, if only it were true........

"Leads, ha ha ha ha, leads!! Ha ha, we got the boys in the crime lab workin' in shifts! Leads!" ....the dude definitely looked insulted to me by the cop, and on many other occasions.

But good point, dude; though I think the dude perhaps aspired to be ego-less, he was imperfect as we all are, and surcome to his natural dudeness buy being real many times, with a real ego, even if said ego was his own creation. I don't personally believe that being dude like equals being "ego-less."

I don't go for all of that "get rid of your ego," stuff. I see that as legalistic Buddhism, another demand on a dude claiming some nebulous benefit. The ego is as part of you as is your nose, to try and be "ego-less" is like saying be "nose-less;" you are denying a valid part of what you are. To achieve enlightenment, perhaps we could call it "dudeist enlightenment," I would say embrace your ego and everything that it is; it's part of you and should be celebrated. Be who you are, and being with an ego is part of you. The only way to get rid of your ego, if that is your thing, is to embrace it fully!

Unfortunately, many "Eastern things" put dudes on a treadmill trying "get rid of their ego," fuck that bullshit, all that is accomplished is dead religion, formulas, rules and regulations, legalistic nonsense AND the ole' "I'm better than you because I have the "ego-less state." The ole' one upmanship game. I just can't be bothered with that shit, life goes on, man...with my ego.



Get outta that car!!!

IMHO  :)

My religion status on Facebook has been "Dudeist" for at least 2 years. When I became ordained in the Church of the Latter-Day Dude a month ago, I added that to my profile. The ex-husband must have noticed the change & is being very unDude.  He's agitated & accusing me of raising our 15 yr old in "a cult" or "mocking Christianity".  My response was "You belong to a cult that protects pederasts - I belong to one that only bowls with them."  (Yes, I am a former Catholic but he's a convert -- the worst kind!)
Trust me. I don't fuck with the Jesus.

Based on the ethos that sometimes they bust your frigging aggets. That kind of unchecked aggression. :)

Great and correct answer. It all goes down to money. If one of those men with the black pajamas has sex with a female it can happen that she could ask for being recognized for retirement benefits in case of man's death. Much worse if they have children. It costs much less if they go the pederasts' way. Fuc***g nihilists. They want to keep the money inside the "church". The real reason why men with the black pajamas can't marry. Money.

That's why they are so stressed, no vagina. Imho.  8)

I don't personally believe that being dude like equals being "ego-less."

It seems to me that the Dude just doesn't understand why the cop would act like that. The Dude has done nothing to earn this treatment. I don't know if he is annoyed, insulted, or just saddened by this cop who has to make jokes at anothers expense to create his own happiness. Either way, I don't see as to how this means the Dude has an id. No one wants to be treated like crap or disrespected, but it is how the Dude handles these situations that shows his egoless-ness. He flows like water, while Walter turns all situations of ego into a fight.

I have been trying to reduce my ego since I first read about Taoism. It really works for me. I am obviously not ego-less, as only a true sage can be (The Dude?), but it helps me to not care as much when someone is shitty to me, or when someone doesn't like my clothes or long hair. It means I don't need a fancy car, a big house, or an "important" job or any or those materialistic things to be at peace in this world. If ones goal is to play the ol' one upmanship game, then they have missed the point, and are probably walking around with a big ol' ego.

Below is the site that started me down the path of Tao, and eventually led my to Dudeism. Some really good reading out there if you have the time and the interest.

http://www.taoism.net/theway/ego.htm

I should add that I don't know anything, nor am I saying you or anyone else is wrong. Just my opinions and observations. I may also be trying to bend the Dude into what I want him to be, and what I aspire to be. Which kinda sounds like my ego getting in the way!  ;)

TDC - I can relate! I've seen it all - and the converts are the worst to deal with, because they have dumped their entire belief system for another one, so they think YOU should too. Although in this day and age, converting to Catholicism is almost unheard of.  Perhaps his new special lady is a zealot too.  One never knows...

@Andrea Da Fino, @Dirty Hippie, @Hominid - Good thoughts, dudes. Far out. This is a topic that should be looked deeper into; that is the concept of the "ego" and what role it plays in Dudeism. I personally embrace my ego in the parlance of my times, others have differing point of views, and I think we need more of this kind of exploration into dudeism in the chat room.

The only problem I have with the notion of letting go of one's ego is:  What exactly is it that thinks it is letting something go?  The ego don't go... not for long, at least.  At best, it's a boomerang.  And as we all know, boomerangs are hunting implements.  So when yer chucking yer ego, make sure you're in an open field, or maybe a room of nihilists.  Eggo, on the other hand, needs to be leggo-of, especially if it's someone elses.  Lego should be shared.  But don't get syrup on it. ...Aw.  I lost my train of thought...
Okay, Dude, have it your way.

Oh No You Don't! I am Not getting dragged back into this all over again!...I'm not...I'm Not...I'm NOT!
Ok...maybe just to say this...it is Not letting go of the ego...but in recognizing your ego for what it is...then Surrendering it.
We each are Observers of our own Reality. No two minds observe the very same Reality. No two minds will ever completely agree on everything.

But we can't worry about that shit...life goes on...8)
