Life in general
I do not believe such thing exists as “Life in general”.
We each have different perspective on life, different experiences and different upbringings.
So it can only be “Life in specific”.
Critical thinking and some books made be believe time does not exist.
It is only a measurement tool we use to stay late and rushed (and sometimes organize our lives).
All mindful meditation practitioners know it at some point.
The most important purpose of mindfulness is shutting down the mind because it is in our mind that we “perceive” time through a non-stop sci-fi movie convincing us the future is bad and the past is regretful.
But time does not exist! just like the number 1 does not exist!
