Understand the balance between opposites.

Chapter 02

When people see some things as beautiful,
Other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
Other things become bad.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
Therefore the Master acts without doing anything
And teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
Things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
Acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

What's Master DudeWay Say?

Life is full of interconnected opposites, and it's essential to see the interplay between them. As a Dudeist, appreciate the natural balance in the world and understand that each aspect relies on its counterpart to exist.

Dudeism Abides

The world is full of contrasts, like The Dude and Walter. Recognize that opposites create balance, and embrace the harmony in these differences.

In contrasts, balance,
Opposites rely on each,
Harmony abides.
