Jon, I’m 58 and reworking my shit still. I think Buddha had it correct: The “middle way” & Life is a journey, not a destination. I’ve had highs and lows and either way, I’ve somehow gotten (sometimes stumbling) myself back to the middle. The middle allows me to take the next step. The path is sometimes wide and sometimes narrow. It sometimes circles back. It most often is indirect — from my brain’s point of view. Without time, we don’t even have a moment to enjoy, so don’t look negatively at time, accept it and see what new experience it brings you. There is no right or wrong, good or bad. There’s only our personal experience and our social contract where we choose to believe in general principles. Life is precious. There is no beginning or end, there is only the process. The process is LOVE. Love itself is greater than romance, it is the process that moves space-time. It is the universal constant behind the big bang and our connection to it, the universe and each other. Life is NOW.
