    As a retiree, I have an abundance of time, which I have never had before. I worry mostly that I am not using my time productively, yet I enjoy the freedom of not having a schedule. Finding the balance is what is challenging me now.

    If i could reach this mindset, I am certain that my heart rate and blood pressure would decrease, and that I could be more relaxed, but I have a hard time changing my mindset to believe that I have enough time. Actually, the real problem may be that I don’t have enough energy. Lack of energy keeps, partly due from stress, keeps me from accomplishing things in the time I have, then my work snowballs, and I get more stress, less energy, and less time to do it all. It is a vicious cycle. So, I do have time. Time for work and me, I just have to see it and seize it.

    I work less than I used to so time is normally abundant whatever perspective I take.

    But then there’s the time I have left before I keel over. And that’s finite and reducing. I haven’t figured out how to live forever yet. But the closer I get to whatever the finish line is, the more I appreciate what is here now. And it’s the sense of scarcity, the limited time I have left, rather than abundance, that brings me to appreciate the present moment.

    Your whole perception changes, you realize that moments and memories are precious. Nothing should be thought of as scarce, each and every little moment of time should cherished and lived to the fullest. We never know how much time we have, but we can’t live like our time is in short supply.

    When time feels abundant, I tend to take proper care of myself.

    I would wonder if I was being honest with myself. The issue for me is living 100% on right now. I am not sure about trying to stretch time in this dimension. There are dimensions where it is timeless (silent and still), but here, sound, movement and time is the backdrop.

    It allows to let go of unhealthy, sad perspectives and feelings of coming short, in the same time it opens to joyful presence, allowing to be happy. Thank you for this question! An eye opener with a view on why. But why, for God´s sake, did I not change perspective??? I don´t want to have this in mind on the last day of my life. So, what I will do now is to promise to myself to change this NOW.

    I really need to work on finding such a perspective. As a single mother, i usually go through life trying desperately to accomplish all that I can in any given day. It is very stressful feeling that there is never enough time. However, when I let that go, release my to do list and just “be”, it is immediately calming. Still trying to figure out how to accomplish this on a more regular basis.

    First and foremost, when you are in the winter of your life, you know that time is precious. You know that life is sometimes difficult but it is always challenging you to evolve. I agree with Eckhart Tolle: “We are the dance and Life is the dancer.” If we learn to listen not label everything good or bad, abundant or scares, we will hear these messages from the dancer. “Let me live in and through you. Don’t allow yourself to lose me. Just give me your hand.” I do not dwell on abundance or scarcity. Creation is happening every moment so I do my best to let Life dance and romance me in both the dark times and the light.

    There may be advantages to considering time both abundant and scarce.
    Abundant helps us to slow down and savor the moments, the people, the place and time, and this is very important.
    But scarce can also help – so we don’t leave important things unsaid or undone… not the “daily grind” stuff but the “I love you” and the “let’s mend our differences,” and the not putting off things that are less urgent but more important, like time with our loved ones, or pursuing a dream, or helping others.

    I have enough time and energy to do the things I need to do and want to do.

    That was actually part of the meditation affirmations I did this morning, so I love coming and reading this question to remind me that it’s true!

    I change. I become more receptive, more available, more open to however I choose to use this abundance of time.

    I’m more present and I get to enjoy what I’m doing at that moment. Opposed to rushing through like I’m racing the clock.

    At first, I was thinking, are we talking about the time remaining for my stay on earth? Or, is the question asking me about time available to me from minute to minute, or hour to hour and how I choose to experience it? And then I realized, it doesn’t matter.

    Whenever I realize in any given moment that I am not being particularly productive, or, I’m being lazy…with gleeful intention, it reminds me of the quote by Thomas Moore, “…Wasted time is usually good soul time.”

    And finally, this, a quote and prayer:
    “Dear God of all time and all creatures, help me to live fully within this cycle of infinity that is your gift to me. Make me less fearful of the measure of time, and more fully alive in the time that simply is. Help me to live time, not just to use it; to breathe it in, and return it in acts of love and presence.” – Avis Crowe

      I never heard that quote before and I Love it! “…Wasted time is usually good soul time.” I also like the wisdom in the quote and prayer too.

      Thank you Kevin for this prayer from Avis Crowe. So fitting & needed today. Blessings for a day of joy, light & love.

        And I must say too, PKR, that the Avis prayer has been my most consistent “go to” prayer over the last 45 years or so. It’s timely, and cuts through the chaff and clatter of every day “noise” of life. > My very best to you my friend.

    This statement is the opposite of what one usually thinks …never enough time… so abundant time = gratitude but even scarce amount of time should also = gratitude.
