simply looking at the complex issue of life
Luke-> a storied name representing the past
you-> you, someone who considers these thoughts
the U -> the Universe, continuously changing and expanding
Three parts of a complex idea
one connected to, leading to the other, and not only linearly
past <--> present <--> future
stories <--> being present, alive now <--> what is possible
LukeyoutheU is ideas. Realities and perspectives that are not opposed to one another, not to each be taken rotely in turn, but relished and experienced at their good time. Sometimes, transcendentally, together.
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.
LukeyoutheU was created in California. I was born in Maryland.
