How what’s really real really works

Cynthia Bourgeault, director of the Aspen Wisdom School in Colorado, talking about the speculation that surrounds the life of Jesus, said that whoever Jesus may have been, his teaching and existence in and of itself made such an impact on people that they passed on his story like wildfire and the explosive energy of it has changed the world.
That much is true. It’s also true that people continue to meet him in their hearts and in their lives, creating some of the most remarkable human beings who have modeled the highest possible degree of human dignity and compassion. For all these people it was the encounter with Jesus that changed their lives. Is this all just massive self-delusion? Or is it the actual working mechanics of how everything that’s really REAL, really works.
