Does Time Feel Like Your Enemy?

This dharma talk is from one of my favorite Buddhist teachers on the topic of relating to subjective time pressure. Take a listen and 25 minutes later, you’re likely to experience a perspective shift.

In it he reads a poem by Mary Howe called The Moment:

Oh, the coming-out-of-nowhere moment

when,   nothing 


no what-have-I-to-do-today-list 

maybe   half a moment  

the rush of traffic stops.  

The whir of I should be, I should be, I should be 

slows to silence,

the white cotton curtains hanging still.
