To disconnect is to sever the connection of or between two entities
To detach
To dissociate, as to disconnect from meaningful relationships
To be out of touch with

Have you ever listened to someone in charge talk intensely about something and scratched your head at how he could actually believe his own lies. Your first thought might be: This person is completely out of touch with reality!

To know what someone wants or needs from us, we must care enough to stay connected. We must be close enough to their daily ins and outs to understand them. If we have disconnected from someone, for example a child estranged from his/her parent, or vice versa, then we no longer have a true idea of what the other is presently thinking, even what danger he/she may be in. We must stay in close proximity to a person for any sort of real relationship.

This is also true in a religious sense. Today, many have disconnected from the source of our very life. God.

But just as no light will display from a lamp without the power source of an electrical socket,  if we are not plugged into God we will not know Him. And if we do not know Him, we cannot, display the true light of our humanity which is in His image.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

Our humanity is a gift, a magnanimous value God has given only to us over all other creation. Why? Because we matter to God. He loves us. He is never disconnected from us. He is always in touch with us. However, we can disconnect from Him. Yet even if that should happen, the power source of God is still available, but we must plug into it.
