Life, with all its wonder and intrigue, its difficulties and challenges, its joy, numbness, and pain, is far too immense a topic for me to come entirely to grips with. Yet here I am; and here I try. Rather than perceiving the continuing, never-ending search, and seeing it as an unending bother, a Sisyphean task, I think it smart to look at life as an unfolding. The unfolding. Unfolding outside of me: the path that life, God, others, fate, providence, economic and physical circumstances, luck, happenstance have put on me/ revealed to me. Unfolding within me: understandings, awarenesses, perceptions, a knowingness of the power and opportunity that flow from the choices I unconsciously and consciously make, the observed/ presumed consequences of decisions I have made, and continue to make, daily, monthly, decadely. We are not alien from life and we are not alien to it. We are also not the whole of it. We are parts of it. Wanted but not absolutely necessary parts, much like a toe, fingernail, hair, brain synapse. The unfolding we are parts of is not from outside us only nor is it only from in. Both unfoldings are the same unfolding: Life for, in, and through us; for, in, and through me. For, in, and through you.
LukeyoutheU (LyU for short) informally addresses some of the potential, (the many many) possible, actual (?), meanings of life. Is there anything more wondrously exciting, so fraught with peril, so worthwhile, as to pursue, decide, find, and apply meaning to our physical, mental, social, and psychological existence? To do less than try is, in my way of thinking, to live less than we are able. To miss out on a whole lot of fun. It is to be near, possibly even see, but not pick and eat, the fruits of the trees before us.
Enough for the start. If you have gotten this far, good on ya. You are being rewarded. If you are interested in going further, I have a feeling you know what to do.
