The Kingdom of God Begins Here on Earth, Just as Hell Does...

“The Kingdom of God begins here on earth, just as hell does - within us, that is, in the heart and soul of a man, by his way of life. Beyond the threshold of eternity both the one and the other only grow, infinitely, unto likeness to the angels or to the devils.” 
- Father Raphael of Optina
