Beyond planning and trying...

A man on earth patiently waited for god to emerge through him. I had a shocking sensation of being alive while watching this, of existing. Mind and desire and modern concerns were frozen for a moment.

John Bunion (J. B.) Murray (1908-1988) was a farmer who lived in rural Glascock County, Georgia. When he was approximately seventy years of age, believing he had experienced a vision from God, he began writing a non discursive script on adding machine tape, wall board, and stationery. He described it as "the language of the Holy Spirit, direct from God" and interpreted it using a bottle of water as a focusing device.

Great little films all throughout the FolkStreams site.
