I just finished watching "The Matrix" on DVD. It's only the second time I've seen it, and I enjoyed it thoroughly each time. I rented it because I know the new one(s) are coming out in a couple of months or so, and I wanted to refresh my memory of the first one. One of these days I'm gonna buy this for my collection. It's kinda funny that the first time I watched this, I had to be talked into it by a friend who really thought I would enjoy it. I thought that it would totally be something I would hate, because I usually don't get into "Terminator"-type movies, which is what I thought "Matrix" was. It's a very deep movie, with lots of layers to explore, and in case you haven't figured it out yet, I recommend it very highly.
Speaking of layers, the movie reminded me of the CQOD for today:
"Though holy doctors have uncovered many mysteries and wonders, and devout souls have understood them in this earthly condition of ours, yet the greater part still remains to be unfolded by them, and even to be understood by them. We must then dig deeply in Christ. He is like a rich mine with many pockets containing treasures: however deep we dig, we will never find their end or their limit. Indeed, in every pocket new seams of fresh riches are discovered on all sides." ~from a spiritual canticle by John of the Cross (1542-1591)
There is supposed to be more of this quote in tomorrow's email.
