the Power of Disconnection

A challenging word:

"If your eyes are glued to your Blackberry and your ears stopped up by your iPod, it's hard to hear what might be going on inside you. Cutting back on these gadgets and not answering every single email and phone call right away may lead to a measure of calm...sometimes you have to disconnect to connect. Likewise, if you're completely absorbed in the electronic world, obsessively checking email and constantly returning phone calls, it becomes impossible to experience the quirky surprises in the world around us."

James Martin, SJ | The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
