For those of you who haven't seen the latest Terrence Malick film:
Let me save you two and a half hours!
watch an eposode of Nova,
take a walk in the woods,
touch some grass that is swaying in the wind
go for a swim, but always take a buddy
read some passages from the book of Job
that bad things happen to good people
ergo, you are not bad just because you suffer
that God is love
that your flesh is not eternal
but love is
that we can seek comfort in that which is eternal
that dinosaurs existed but that doesn't mean God doesn't
that little boys have unsavory thoughts about their moms and dads
that women should stand up more
and men should stand down most of the time
but really there is no "should"
that we are the soul of the earth
that we are all connected
that nobody knows what happens when we die
that faith brings us comfort
and hope brings us faith
that empathy is part of connection
that the world is wondrous
that we mean nothing but feel everything
that either all of it or none of it matters
but either way, we should still be in awe!
P.S. There is no way to "save" time.
Maybe you should see the movie. I know less than Him.
