Life according to Kabbalah is existence within the Light, in the property of bestowal. It is perceived as a sensation of boundless existence when you endlessly flow within this state and see it as eternal.
At the same time, the perception of corporeal reality, the sensation of time, space, and limitation disappear. You enter a different coordinate system. It has different limitations where you define yourself in relation to others.
We must get used to this, as it is a necessity for entry. Sometimes it takes a few years before a person begins to sense the upper world. However, our task is to come to the sensation of the upper reality before we physically part with this world. Generally speaking this is the main mission of Kabbalah.
