There is more to life than only that which we can see, touch, and measure.
There is more to your life, greater meaning and importance, than what you currently know. You can live and feel better; you can participate more fully in the dance of life. LukeyoutheU is about how.
We each have a fundamental belief about how life operates, about who we are, what we're about. It is our organizing principle.
Yours might be the primacy of family, your religious or spiritual belief, the importance of money, success in a sport; it could be keeping disease-free, how your look, your identity as an intellectual or an artist. Etc. This principle, this center of meaning which you've chosen unconsciously and consciously, forms your bedrock belief. It is on that belief, that organizing principle, that you build your life.
I have one, too. Mine is "there is more." My belief can help you in yours.
I believe that there is more to life than only the material. That our existence, and Life itself, is more than only that which we can touch, see, or measure. Life is material, frequently seen, often touchable, yes; and it is also what we might call spiritual. It is also that which binds us all together. Which makes/ causes/ allows the physical to work. We can know more of it but not, I think, all of it.
I also believe that everyone's life can improve. Your life can be more personally fulfilling; it can better serve goodness in the world.
There is more good in this life available in and for each of us. This includes you, dear reader. Your situation at a given point in time might suck, yes. But that does not mean your life, overall, needs to be a tortuous feat of survival. Joy is available, even in difficult or dire situations. It can be found by those who allow it, who create it, who have learned to cultivate it. I'm not promising an always, or an always easy, joy. I am suggesting that happiness and joy can be experienced more often. That a greater knowing of peace, and your place in this world, of meaning, can come.
"There is more" is a process of search-and-find. I work from the perspectives which particularly interest me: business, science, the Bible, history, science fiction/ science fantasy/ fantasy, and personal experience; you will have your own.
Search knowing there is more good and you will find it.
I ask you to join me in exploring possibilities of meaning in life. I'm more than a few years into it, into life and finding meaning. Past the initial thrill, now digging deep to in-joy what is and what's to come. I hope, and expect, many more years ahead.
I call this idea, this knowing that there is more good in our past, in our present, and, especially, in our future, LukeyoutheU. You can follow LyU with tweets, on Facebook, and/ or by subscribing. As you wish.
Whatever you decide, whether you involve LyU or not, I encourage you to take your next step. Take the step that moves your life in a better direction.
Then take the one after that.
There is more good in life, and you, than you currently know.
I'm good at encouraging people in their search for positive meaning. Reasoned hope exists in nearly every situation; I intend what I write to spur you, dear reader, to more hope. To a better life ahead.
Know that life is good. That you are good at your core.
