Let go of societal expectations and embrace the simplicity of life to find inner peace.

Chapter 20

Stop learning, and put an end to your troubles.
Is there a difference between yes and no?
Is there a difference between good and evil?
Must I fear what others fear? What nonsense!
Other people are content with their lot.
Like the guests at a banquet, they enjoy life and see nothing wrong.
But I alone am different from them.
Like a newborn baby, I am still.
I am empty and have no desires.
Other people have more than they need,
But I alone have nothing.
I am a fool. Oh, yes! I am confused.
Others are clear and bright,
But I alone am dim and weak.
Others are sharp and clever,
But I alone am dull and stupid.
Oh, I drift like the waves of the sea,
Without direction, like the restless wind.
Everyone else is busy,
But I alone am aimless and depressed.
I am different.
I am nourished by the great mother.

What's Master DudeWay Say?

In today's fast-paced and achievement-oriented world, many people find themselves overwhelmed and lost. Chapter 20 encourages us to let go of societal expectations and embrace the simplicity of life. By doing so, we can find inner peace and reconnect with our true selves, much like the protagonist in the film "Into the Wild," who leaves the trappings of modern society to find meaning and freedom in the vast wilderness.

Dudeism Abides

By abandoning the pursuit of knowledge and societal norms, we can release ourselves from the constraints of expectations and discover a deeper connection with the natural order of things.

Embrace simple life,
Cast off expectations, find
Peace in mother's arms.
