be still. look up.

Thomas Friedman, author of The World is Flat, said our preoccupation with technological communication is creating in us something he calls partial attention disorder.

We have long lists of acquaintances in our mobile phone books, but fewer close friends.

More importantly, we are losing the power to contemplate .

We are finding it difficult to express the soul within us.

The Bible talks of Jesus often just turning his eyes towards Heaven in the midst of a world gone mad.

It was the same for the leaders of the early church Peter and Paul. When confronted by mindless chatter, ignorance and hatred they often turned their eyes to Heaven.

The seeker of the sacred looks up.
