What are the questions, the big questions, the questions that keep you up at night, that never seem to find a resting place?  Questions about “more?”  Is there more to being human than just instinct and biochemistry?

When we speak of spirituality, what do we mean?  Is that something real or just a pleasant self-delusion?   We all want more, but more of what? And from where? This existential itch is expressed hopefully in the poetry of Andrew Peterson entitled More.

This is not the end here at this grave
This is just a hole that someone made
Every hole was made to fill
And every heart can feel it still–
Our nature hates a vacuum.

This is not the hardest part of all
This is just the seed that has to fall
All our lives we till the ground
Until we lay our sorrows down
And watch the sky for rain

There is more
More than all this pain
More than all the falling down
And the getting up again
There is more
More than we can see
From our tiny vantage point
In this vast eternity
There is more

A thing resounds when it rings true
Ringing all the bells inside of you
Like a golden sky on a summer eve
Your heart is tugging at your sleeve
And you cannot say why
There must be more

There is more
More than we can stand
Standing in the glory
Of a love that never ends
There is more
More than we can guess
More and more, forever more
And not a second less

There is more than what the naked eye can see
Clothing all our days with mystery
Watching over everything
Wilder than our wildest dreams
Could ever dream to be
There is more.

Andrew Peterson, “More”

The poet waxes hopeful, but are his hopes grounded in reality or truth?  Is there more?
