This video is well worth the 9 minutes it takes to watch. It is beautiful because in just 9 minutes it challenges all of those silly, stupid little judgments we make about ourselves, about others, about life.
It reminds us that regardless of what we think, life happens. Or as the old saw goes, life is what happens while you’re busy making plans.
We can imagine ourselves in control, picture the life we want for ourselves, but as this story clearly demonstrates, we are a life being lived, not living a life. We can beg for the machine to stop, for a chance to breathe and take stock, but it doesn’t work that way. It just keeps on living us. Until it doesn’t.
