simply looking at the complex issue of life
derivation of the word:
Luke (a storied name) representing the past
you (you, you now reading this) living in the present
the U (the Universe, and possibilities) pointing to the future
Luke you the U
The narratives we pay attention to, the stories we read (see, tell, resonate with), and those we create, form much of the experience of our lives. They are ways, the ways?, we tell ourselves what we believe. They give directions to, are, the direction of our lives. If we choose lovingly, if we choose wisely, choose consciously the stories, and therefore, as possible our beliefs, that we invest in, make them ones that help not only others but also ourselves, not only honoring the past but living the now and preparing for the future, then we improve on, and make more, Life.
Luke represents the past; you the present; the U the future. We can, and it is often useful to think of, the past, the present, and the future as separate and distinct. In the bigger reality, they are all part of time, of the one time. Of Life. LukeyoutheU offers stories of life, and presents belief systems, ones which I find/ believe useful and good.
LukeyoutheU was created in California. I was born in Maryland.
