We are one with everything before we are born. We are one with everything after we die. What does one with everything feel like? It is likely a happy time as no one has every complained about the time before they were born and we are essentially happy when we are not complaining.
The time between birth and death is infinitesimal relative to the time before we are born and the time after we die. Yet, we focus virtually all our attention on the time between birth and death and pay little heed to the time before and after. Perhaps we would be happier if we paid some attention to the time other than when we are alive.
