In Buddhism, we speak of touching Nirvana with our own body, In Christianity, you can also touch the Kingdom of God with your body, right here and now. it is much safer than placing our hope in the future.

The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment. -Thich Nhat Hanh
