Life Together

I’m hard-pressed to find story better than that of “Team Hoyt.” It’s not a new video, but it’s worth watching again and again.

I complain. I wish for better. I ask for change. And I look for more.

Then…I watch.

I watch the story of Team Hoyt and it all goes away. All my wants and desires leave and I become present, in the moment…complete.

What I appreciate about this video is how it brings life back into perspective, when it so easily gets away from us.

The story is one of a journey of life together. Our culture breeds individualism. We’re continually being separated from nature and one another. Life is so much more rich lived out together, but so much around us aids us to self-protect. Self-protection may be at the very core to all that separates.

I have a great friend that said, “I want to become less dependent on institutions and become more dependent on people.” I thought that was beautiful.

And I couldn’t agree more.
