Charity's Views on Respecting Parents

During my conversations in 1995 with Charity, a Professor CIE and my spiritual mentor, we discussed the Ten Commandments. Here is one regarding the injunction to respect one’s parents.

Ralph: The next one is "Respect your father and your mother, as I the Lord your God command you so that all may go well with you and so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you."

Charity: Why would The Creator want to say that?

Ralph: I think it's a nice idea to respect your father and your mother. We've talked about that recently.

Charity: Right, but that's just as a child who is growing up, and when you are as a child when you grow up, everything that you are learning culture-wise, and value-wise, and so forth is by the avenue of your parents, as the Guardian has picked out. Correct?

Ralph: Yes.

Charity: Therefore it has molded you into the human being that you need to be to start listening to your Essence. So this is another rule again that the humans have laid down onto the human race stating that you need to listen to your father and your mother. The Creator does not care if you listen to your father and your mother. He does not have a father and a mother. He is The Creator! The Creator, again, is not human. The Creator is energy.

Ralph: Well, again, it's a good rule.

Charity: Of course, it's a good rule.

Ralph: But of course there are children who have no father or mother, who are orphaned, so how could they ever follow that rule?

Charity: They can't.

Ralph: They'd be in violation of it.

Charity: Of course.

Ralph: They'd be bad people.

Charity: Of course.

Ralph: You can't have that. Anyhow it is a cultural guidance rule, but it isn't anything that The Creator would have put down if he was making all these up Himself.

Charity: Of course.
