In the discussion, Lama Surya Das writes:
My thesis is that it’s not time we lack but focus, priorities, and awareness. For we actually have all the time we need; it all depends on how we choose to use or abuse and lose it.
For example: What keeps you from choosing more satisfactorily how you spend your own time?
Is it really true, as so many people tell me, that others take a lot of time… Rather than you yourself give it to them– work, boss, family or whomever– and that therefore you have a lot of choice, whether conscious or not, in such matters?
