The Matrix (the movie) is similar to the world in which we live. We are definitely not seeing things the way God does and we need to wake up, fast... like Neo, who, when going through a transformation from an old way of living to “the real,” experienced much pain in coming to know the truth, we too must enter into the real life with Christ if we are going to be able to see the truth. And this can sometimes be a rude awakening.
The truth is only found in discovering the Divine Vision. What is this? In essence, it is seeing the world as God created it. Just like when Adam and Eve saw each other for the first time in truth and had a profound experience of the mystery of God, by letting Christ transform our vision, we will be able to slowly recover this beautiful vision of life and, more importantly, live in a way that truly fulfills.
