50 “Thin” Days of Easter: A Wager – Week 2

It might seem logical that the more spiritually advanced a person is, the more they would be able to meet Jesus in a fully enfleshed resurrection appearance—“like matching like,” so to speak. But in fact things seem to work the opposite way. Jesus is present in physical density only insofar as is necessary to match density of doubt that is blocking the view… Jesus is corporeally present only to the degree that people cannot yet see with the eye of the heart. As the eye of the heart opens, there is more and more freedom to release the physical traces and simply allow the naked immediacy of love to meet heart to heart.
