"There is more."
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 participate in the more and live better.
LukeyoutheU is about how.
We each have a fundamental belief about how life operates, about who we are and what we're about. It is our organizing principle.
Yours might be the primacy of family, your religious or spiritual belief, making money, success in a sport; it could also 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."
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 spiritual.
I also believe, on a personal level, that life need not suck. 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 suck. 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 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 game of search-and-find. I work from the perspectives which particularly interest me: business, science, psychology, the Bible, fiction, history, and personal experience; you will have your own.
Search knowing there is more good and you will find it.
You're welcome to join me in this, my understanding of the adventure of life. I'm more than a few years into it. 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" LukeyoutheU. Sign up for a daily tweet; follow my occasional blog. I recommend you take at least one step today to move your life in its better direction. Possibly you could take a step even this very minute.
If there's one thing I do well it is to encourage people. I can find reasoned hope in nearly any situation. I intend what I write to encourage you, to give you hope and faith for a better life ahead.
