Reading Wherever I Wind Up by R.A. Dickey this morning I come across this line, “Being here reminds me of one of the enduring challenges of living on this side of eternity: how to live fully in the pain of a moment as well as the joy of a moment.”
Practice is sometimes easy for me. The moments when ‘nothing’ is happening or the moments with joy have never taken much discipline or energy. The pain, though, that is the moment my mind pulls out every trick for retreat, distraction, or camouflage. Just reading that line this morning resurrected old pains. Great. Now that is the moment in which I need to stay present.
Now that I’m writing, I’m not in the moment, but a new one. That’s ok. I have to take the time to recommend the book. I’m not a baseball fan, but I am a fan of wisdom. Read it.
