Do our deep spiritual experiences have influence on other people?

It is said that if one experiences the Buddha‘s Enlightenment then all others are also enlightened. If one thinks over it though this is not possible. One may say that the enlightenment experience concerned only the Buddha, and that nobody else was influenced by it. However, if our Eye is pure then everything we see and think is also pure. We cannot see it yet only because our own mind is not yet clear enough. We make our Bodhisattva vow and if we give away our life for the Bodhisattva Path, it is as if we had already experienced enlightenment. Just as if all people really wanted peace, then peace would rule: we can sit here and find peace in our mind, and make the first step for peace on earth.
