Thanks for this explanation. It has been very helpful. I guess that at every moment there will be reminders that our experience is an illusion.

You are enlightened. What you possibly haven't experienced is
Realization of your Enlightenment. By pointing to time as
the hold your mind's "same old, same old" has on you might be
loosened. When you are in a movie theater, sometimes the film messes
up, skips frames, and even melts. This breaks your focus on the story
being told on the screen, and you realize that what you were watching
is just a story on a screen. Zen koans, Jhana yoga concepts (like the
illusion of time), Sufi stories, and many more methods, are
specifically intended to wake us from the dream story playing in the
theater of our mind. When we awaken, we know there is no "day to day
life", and this will happen when we experience the eternal infinite
bliss-full Love that is Reality. It is our birthright to have this
experiential Knowledge. Meditation has proven to be the best way to
have this (by Grace only) experience, sooner than later. I hope this
little explanation helps.
Peace and blessings,

me in day to day life?
