If you do not “Zoom Forward” in your Spiritual Life and prepare for your departure from this Earth Life, then you have made a very grievous mistake. There is more to your Life than the people and things of this Earth Life…
Regardless of who you are; or who you think you are and likewise concerning what you have or what you think you have and you can place any name or anything in the equation: If you are not extremely careful; you will spend your entire life focused on the people and things surrounding you and they will absorb, deceive and trick you so much, you will miss out towards seeking the Lord.
Your life on earth is only a “limited amount of time”; then you pass away into the eternal state, into infinity, through the: Gate of Eternity for better or worse!!!
Be wise and seek the Lord while you have “time”.
You need to buy up, that is, make better use of the “time in your life” as to being rich toward God with whatever “time you have”; because there is a limited amount of the “time in your life” and you cannot buy/get it back, once it is gone!!!
There will be a “time in your life” that your soul will be required of you; and you are powerless to stop it from leaving your earth body.
Luke 12:  And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.  And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.  And he spoke a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:  And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?  And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.  And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.  But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?  So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
The following are about the Universe. There is a life beyond Earth. As people upon this Earth; the great majority of humanity has been deceived by people and things; as if this is all of our existence. Perhaps this page will be helpful to someone; towards helping you to awaken to the reality of Life after this Earth Life…

NASA Images and Media
As of December 2023, there are at least 200 articles I plan to add and probably many more, as they are created at NASA; to this website; well, maybe… I enjoyed viewing and reading the articles, so perhaps they will be of interest to anyone viewing this website.
NGC 685 takes center stage amid faintly twinkling stars on an inky black background. This galaxy is clearly a barred spiral galaxy with its bright center bar and patchy, curving arms. It is about 58 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. NGC 685 lies south of the celestial equator and is visible from the southern hemisphere at certain times of the year.
British astronomer John Herschel discovered NGC 685 in 1834, and early observers noted its apparent roundness. The whole galaxy is about 60,000 light-years across – a little more than half the size of our Milky Way. The patches of bright blue along the galaxy’s arms are star clusters, groups of stars held together by their mutual gravitational attraction. Wisps of dark red near the central bar depict interstellar gas and dust, the matter from which stars form. About two-thirds of all spiral galaxies have a central bar like NGC 685. Its intense glow comes from many stars concentrated in a relatively small area.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope took this image as part of a scientific effort to study star cluster formation and evolution. Hubble’s ultraviolet capabilities are well-suited to this task, since young stars shine brightly at ultraviolet wavelengths. An average-sized galaxy like NGC 685 can have around 100 million stars, which is on the low end.
