Past and present don't exist in living or in life. They are concepts that we as humans have created to prove the exist of "self" which also does not exist. We are beings that are part of the present moment. If we existed before or if we will exist later is unimportant. The present moment is all there is. Getting rid of time means that our life is unlimited, that we are infinite and we no longer must feel defined to one self, to one life.
