In 2005, Brother Physician Partridge picked up the plastic telephone and called me to tell me he was working on a Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm religion. He explained how you were either a Seinfeldian or an Enthusiast. At the time I told him that I dug the idea but I couldn’t wrap my head around the cosmic spiritual idea of a Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm religion. Then a couple of years ago, I was watching Seinfeld on the television who’s first name is G, middle name is O and last name is D.

As I was watching the gang eating lunch it flashed on me. Where do they always hang out? At the diner named Monk’s. The monad, the Eternal One; everything comes from it and everything returns. Even though Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm seem like hilarious, jaded and critical comedy the main thing that happens in the Seinfeld/Curb universe is that everything is connected. And that’s why they eat at Monk’s. All is one, one is all. And of course, monks are servants of God.

Then you have Curb Your Enthusiasm. The word “enthusiasm” originally was a word used by an ancient sect of people called Enthusiasts who went around in ancient Greece preaching their constant enthusiasm for God and all things Divine. We at the Partridge Family Temple are Enthusiasts but the world would try to curb our enthusiasm. We understand that all the unpleasant people and things that happen are simply comic material to transform into Comedy Gold.
