Waking Life

I watched part of the DVD "Waking Life" last night. It is a very interesting film where the Director Richard Linklater shot his movie with actors, using cameras, and then with a team of artists animated the entire thing in all sorts of different styles.

One of the themes of "Waking Life" was a challenge for us to return to a life of 'the now (presence)'. There are many philosophical ideas within the context of the film, portrayed by a young man's dream world. The idea of a 'Holy Moment' was explored, whereby the film director, through the characters, shares that God is present in all things. Hmmmm.....this is a thought-provoking idea isn't it? What do you reckon? Is God present in all things? Or to put it in another way, do you see God in all things?

Sis I see "His hand" in all things but sadly I see too often where He was rejected.

Ontologically (in terms of His existence) God is present everywhere, however His presence is not necessarilly manifested everywhere, except in terms of His work of creation.

God Bless
