Opening a Finder window of the current directory from within a Terminal
window, can be performed by typing "open .". 

Make the Finder show all files and directories:
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

To go back to normal view, retype the above commands, but type FALSE at the
end of the first line.
