Is time speeding up? It seems so as we fill our lives with so many "labor saving" devices. The 21st century mantra could very well be: There isn't enough time. Lama Surya Das warns us, "The lesson here is not how we can get up earlier or stay up later, or make more time, but how we can reclaim, reframe, and own time." He shares many gems of wisdom, such as: "Right driving--When you're driving your car, you don't get there any faster by being where you're not" and "Nowness is the ultimate therapy." In this dialogue we explore how we can free ourselves from the tyranny of time, as we step out of the fast lane on to the off ramp, in order to enjoy a saner and more balanced relationship with time.
