Time and the Soul by Jacob Needleman

Time is the greatest modern scarcity. What used to be considered signs of success--being busy, having many responsibilities, being involved in many projects or activities--are today being felt as afflictions. The bestselling author of Money and the Meaning of Life, philosopher Jacob Needleman, shows how to take a bold and unconventional approach to time. The aim: to get more out of it by breaking free of our illusions about it. Needleman dispenses with tricks and techniques that only serve to make our obsessiveness more efficient. Instead he shows how we can understand what our days are for. Its this understanding that allows time to finally begin to breathe in our lives. People can learn to experience time more purposefully and meaningfully. We need not be at times mercy. Needleman rejects time-management techniques in order to reveal ancient and little-known modern practices for exploring ones internal clock. He reveals how time is experienced by the soul. Drawing on the wisdom literature that chronicles the ways of Buddhists, poets, and philosophers, one learns: What it could mean to chart ones real past, unclouded by emotions How memory can lie to us Why we need not be obsessed with the future How to experience time so that it is not an enemy robbing us of the joy of life How to have more nonpsychological time, or time of the heart [that] does not move, such as moments of ecstasy or joy in which time is cut off from the physical world How to experience the gifts of time
