Practice moderation and detachment.

Chapter 09

Fill your bowl to the brim,
And it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife,
And it will blunt.
Chase after money and security,
And your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval,
And you will be their prisoner.
Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

What's Master DudeWay Say?

In the movie Fight Club, Tyler Durden says, "It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything." This idea of detachment from material possessions and external approval resonates with the Tao's teaching of finding serenity through moderation and stepping back.

Dudeism Abides

By embracing moderation and not seeking external validation, we can find inner peace and harmony with the Tao.

Moderation's grace,
Detach from worldly desires,
Serenity blooms.
