New to it all
« on: August 07, 2012, 03:06:40 pm »
Hello,
My name is Val and I'm kinda new to Discordianism in general. While I've known about the basics of the religion I've never actually practiced it. So I'd like to hear from some "enlightened" individuals what Discordianism is and how I may get further involved.

We don't have any enlightened people here.  We DID, but they all fucked off to hang out with the Buddhists.  You can get involved by contacting your local HIMEOBS recruiting office.

And there's no such thing as Discordianism.  We just made that up as a way to attract people to our pyramid scheme.

Under Azathots reign, we have had better returns in all four quarters of the fiscal year.
His policies have led to better savings throughout the year AND more deducatables so your net is far closer to the gross.

All in all it's a good time to be a discordian.

No caps this time.  Might have improved in their absence.

Meh, there's no need to practice.  Do or do not, yoda, yoda, yoda....

Discordianism is listening to Life and The World telling you the sum parts of your life, existence, and actions should look a certain way and responding:

Meh, thank, I'm all set.  And just doing it the fuck YOUR way. 

But, Discordianism is also about recognizing that YOUR way may have unknowingly been corrupted by THEIR expectations, paradigms, and game rules.  So you also need to be good mechanic.  You need to get under the hood, scrape out and hose off the gunk. 

But don't get too carried away either.  Sometimes you just gotta go with it and listen to your gut.

Discordianism is about having fun until they come to shut off the power, then having just as much fun in the dark.

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

So I guess it's philosophical yet open for interpretation, I like that. Thanks for the input always appreciated :)

If you get the chance you may want to look it up. Pretty much what they did was put voice overs for the original epasodes. Its actually decently funny and has amazing quality, if i didn't know any better id think that was the real thing. If you want I could probably find a link.
