Hey Dude,

Thisay here quote reminds me of something Alan Watts once said about Tao.  Watts was a master of analogy.  And, of course, you expand Taoism to Dudeism and I think you've got yerself a lesson in abiding:


"In order to go into Taoism at all, we must begin by being in the frame of mind in which it can be understood. You cannot force yourself into this frame of mind, anymore than you can smooth disturbed water with your hand."

"my nature comes of itself. It isn't something you can force into line."

The clouds above us come together and disperse;
The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can keep us from celebrating?
