I do not know what happened with the touching of objects but am happy you had this experience.

The Buddha (the Thai version not the Chinese "fat" version), and several Bodhittsatvas (Buddhist "saints"), appeared to me when I was a teenager.  My parents were upset with me that I had the hubris to think these were real.  It all has to do with cultural expectations.
I must suppose that  in your case they were not real but how did your parents KNOW that. It is not hubris to recognise reality . I cant speak to the reality/physicality of the posters experince but it is very interesting. For example, if we take his word, like me he had to research to even find out what some things were. This precludes prior cultural conditioning in the formation of an hallucination.

Ps heat and light are common physical manifestions of "the holy spirit" to use the christian terminology. Heat is often accompanied by healing of the body, and light by healing of the emotions. This power/ force/ entity of course predates both christian jewish and muslim theologies and is found inmost religions around the world.. "the holy spirit is merely a name for it, as indeed "god" is merely a name for the entity which generates this power.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

My parents were well enough educated to understand the nature of waking dreams.  Most Buddhists take claims of this sort to be hubris anyway.  It takes years of study and meditation and right living to become enlightened and a huge dollop of genuine humility to become enlightened.

  I beg to disagree. it only takes enlightenment to become enlightened. The rest is just what others believe and teach to be true. Enlightenmet can come to a peron simply throug inner reflection and contemplation and the opening of ones heart and mind to the truth, or it can be given as a gift by the cosmic consciousness to anyone capapble of comprehending it.

  Certainly such enlightmentment and the recognition of ones true place in the universe/ cosmic consciousness humbles most conscious beings who thoughttheir own mind was the most significant thing in their world, but it also expands them, makes them more truthful in their recognitition of reality, and this is not entirely conducive to true and total humilty To recognise ones relationship with the cosmic consciousness, and the abilities and benefits it brings one, is both humbling and uplifting, and one must be honest enough to accept these abilities and benefits, in order to use them to help self and others.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

What's the correct word for more than one Jesus?

Is it Jesuses or Jesi? I always get it wrong.

I don't believe there is even anything such as 'more than one Jesus' because the consensus is obviously there is only 'one'
In which case we're all wrong here .... starting with the OP and me

What an unfortunate thing to think.  I have no idea how to respond to such fancifulness and lack of the depth.  You must mean something alien to what is meant by the word throughout history, something that to me is incomprehensible.  Knowledge and understanding and enlightenment do not come from our toenails or some magical formula, but from study and thought and teaching and good living and compassion and humility.

I have no problem with the idea of there being more than one Jesus; my only problem is the one we have.
