The Wrath of Father
Maybe its a coincidence, but whenever I spiritually drifted away from my parents, life grew cruel, and whenever I was a loving and respectful son who cared for their wishes I prospered and was happy.
Do blessings and curses of parents have any effect?
I recall, about an Uncle of mine in Thailand, and his tortured existence as he suffered because of his father's curse.
Love or hate, blessings or curses, they are manifestations of the same spiritual energy. Two sides of the same coin.
About this Uncle.
In 1964 the Burmese government nationalised all private property, reducing to zero the wealth and liberty of most Indians. Faced with a bleak future, Indians tried to flee.
My extremely wealthy and honourable grand-uncle had wisely retained his wealth not in cash but precious rubies. He arranged to have them smuggled out from Burma to his youngest son in Bangkok, so that his large family could start life all over again, if they could escape from Burma.
This uncle in Bangkok received all the wealth and set up a very successful business. When his brothers escaped from Burma they called upon this uncle. Sadly he turned his back on his brothers claiming that all he received was a pittance and the wealth that the brothers saw was the result of his personal effort and therefore they could not expect anything from him.
The heartbroken brothers felt cheated by their youngest brother. They dispersed all over the world and started to successfully rebuild their lives all over again from scratch. They had neither the time nor the energy for conflict and revenge. They simply stopped thinking of their enormous wealth and a brother, as if he never ever existed at all.
My grand-uncle was an extremely clever, innovative, hard working man. He was one of Burma's wealthiest men, and a deeply spiritual person. The shock of the betrayal of his son so traumatised him that he fell il and soon thereafter passed away, a sad and bitter man. On his death bed he cursed his son; " He who tries to build fortunes on the back of stolen wealth will never enjoy the fortune and will suffer all his life."
It appears from visible facts that the curse had all but destroyed my uncle and his family. Soon after my Grand Uncle's death in Burma, this uncle in Thailand fell seriously ill and his business also suffered.
