I know that "しない" means "not do", and "いられる" means can exist, but I can't put it all together.

My best guess is that it means "The mind/spirit that could be here won't do it".


~~気がする means "I feel like~~" "I get the feeling that~~". So ~~気がしない means "I don't feel like~~" "I don't get the feeling that~~".


To break it down...

もう~~ない not anymore
ここにいられる can stay here
気がしない don't feel like...

Putting them back together:

I don't feel like I can stay here any longer.


It means "I don't feel like I can be here any more." See: https://selftaughtjapanese.com/2014/01/06/use-your-energy-useful-expressions-in-japanese-which-use-ki-%E6%B0%97%EF%BC%89intermediate/
