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…

This vibrant Hubble Space Telescope image features the spiral galaxy NGC 1566, sometimes informally referred to as the ‘Spanish Dancer Galaxy’. Like the subject of another recent image, NGC 1566 is a weakly-barred or intermediate spiral galaxy. This means that it does not have a clearly present or a clearly absent bar-shaped structure at its center. The galaxy owes its nickname to the vivid and dramatic swirling lines of its spiral arms, which could evoke the shapes and colors of a dancer’s moving form. NGC 1566 lies around 60 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Dorado and is a member of the Dorado galaxy group.
A galaxy group is a collection of gravitationally bound galaxies. They differ from galaxy clusters in size and mass: galaxy clusters may hold hundreds of galaxies, while galaxy groups might only hold several tens of galaxies. However, groups are the most common collection of galaxies in the universe, holding more than 50% of all galaxies. Although there is currently no precise number delineation between the definition of a galaxy group and a galaxy cluster, some astronomers have suggested that collections with less than 80 trillion Suns should be classified as galaxy groups.
The Dorado group membership has fluctuated over the past few decades, as various scientific papers changed its list of constituent galaxies. This is one example of why it is so challenging for astronomers to pin down members of galaxy groups like the Dorado group. One way to better understand this problem is by imagining a photograph of an adult human and a large oak tree. We know the approximate size of the person and the tree, so if we see a photo where the person appears roughly the same size as the tree, then we would assume that, in reality, the person was much closer to the camera than the tree. When astronomers try to figure out which galaxies are members of a galaxy group, they do not necessarily know the size of the individual galaxies. Instead, they have to work out whether the galaxies really are relatively close together in space, or whether some of them are actually much closer or much further away. This process is easier with more sophisticated observation techniques, but it still can present a challenge.
