dc.description.abstract"Climb up and look out to sea," he directed his servant, who went up and looked, but reported, "There is nothing." Seven times he said, "Go, look again!" And, the seventh time the youth reported, "There is a cloud as small as a man's hand rising from the sea." I reflect on the above story and take the message of "Be attentive. Pay attention. Be in the moment. Really see."|In a fast-paced multi-tasking 24/7 technological world, this is increasingly difficult to do. Many barriers are present which keep us from being attentive, from really seeing, and, from truly being in the moment with someone else. Depending on what part of the world you are in, what your life roles and responsibilities are, and, what your interiority is, each of us responds differently to how well we respond with attention and intention to all individuals, nature, and events on June 14, 2012. I write this Daily Reflection from the middle of the United States where I teach graduate online students. In my 24/7 technological world, I have accustomed myself to being accountable by responding to emails within 24 hours. I think (and, some literature supports this) that, as a woman, I live a life of multi-tasking to enable all dimensions of life to be accomplished. And, whether it is social media and/or other media, the messages, news, and world/regional/local crises that bombard our senses day after day leave their toll on our mental processing. A major national story on one day is barely discussed three days later as newer concerns reach the media and are transmitted.|"Go, look again." Today, I will practice 'looking again.'en_US
