Quote discipline Day 4

The greatest gift you can give another is the purity of your attention.

I'm tempted to not comment on this quote at all today, except to say that I intend to put it in practice during the next few days.

But I will share the following: As I feel like I am just now emerging a long session of standing next to the pitching machine in a batting cage, and since I realise that I did not always react graciously to the balls that whacked me, and in fact even my responses to the near-misses weren't always something to be proud of... I am at a point where I need to acknowledge those who handled me kindly. The ones who gave me that great gift, a debt that can't be paid, of pure attention.

Thank you, and may I learn to be more like you.
