Dudeism; a religion of peace.
« on: May 22, 2022, 01:47:00 PM »
So dudes, it comes to mind (inspired by a morning of burning a J) that Dudeism is for sure a true religion of peace.

Was not the Dude a dude who abided in peace as much as possible? For sure, the Dude, when confronted with the nihilists trying to cut off his Johnson (in his beloved tub), and the Dude, at the end of the epic gospel story of the Dude (The Big Lebowski), wasn't below defending himself; but did he not offer the nihilists the humble content of his wallet while seeking peace with those human paraquats? Did not the Dude seek to negotiate peace on the bowling alley when Walter went Walter on Smokey who edged over the line?

The dude was a true Dudeist prophet of peace, along with a daily J burn, bowling, a refreshing Kalua and helping his lady friend conceive, man. All deeds of peace. The Dude never went Walter on anyone. Fucking a.

Thoughts, fellow dudes?

The most The Dude ever did was raise his voice a little. Even when confronting The Big Lebowski after tying all the threads together, not only did Ol Duder not get physical, but also showed compassion asking Walter to help him back into his chair.

But I feel the real feel here is peace within and without chaos. While The Dude can be seen as an icon of peace, he is also a force of chaos, doing as he pleases when and where it suits him. But at least he has the respect to ask if TBL minds of he burns a J, even if he doesn't wait for an answer.

Does or does not that embody the yin-yang symbol we've come to know and appropriate? Sometimes The Dude is acting very un-Dude. Sometimes Walter is calmer than you are. Peace and Chaos. The Kahlua and the half-and-half.

The Dude isn't gonna flash a piece out on the lanes, but he's not fragile either - beyond pacifism.

Well Dudes I'll give my 2 cents.
I don't think it's a coincidence that the bowling team is "triune".
It's a trinity.
Quote
The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus 'threefold')[1] defines God as being one god existing in three coequal, coeternal, consubstantial divine persons:[2][3] God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit, three distinct persons sharing one homoousion (essence).[4] In this context, the three persons define who God is, while the one essence defines what God is.[5][6]

I think the key to making it to life's playoffs lies in balance.
All of us play the Donnie from time to time. And he died for our sins and and as a surfer explored
the beaches of southern California from Redondo to Calabassos.
But we need our Walter just like we need our Dude.
In dark places that we don't talk about at dinner parties we want him on that wall. We need him on that wall.
Ask yourself where the Dude would have ended up without some Walter.
Dickless. IMO that's as much of the "message" of the movie as Adiding.
The Dude Adides. That is his thing.
And I'm talkin' about the Dude here-- sometimes there's a man who, wal,
he's the man for his time'n place, he fits right in there
But some died face down in the mud for his right to Abide. (and piss standing up)
It's all about being part of the team. And the team has it's Walter's and Donnys and you need the Dude abiding.
You could say he ties the room together.
I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that. 
It's good knowin' he's out there, the Dude, takin' her easy for all us sinners.

Dude on the right holding the briefcase and phone, Walter in the middle holding his piece, Donny on the left wondering what's going on. That's marvelous.

The last few weeks have been very problematic for me in terms of free time, because I have to write a lot of research in college. I am regularly assisted by professional writers from https://edubirdie.com/write-my-college-essay who can fully write my research work and help with literature and sources.


This is incredible, thank you!
