Throwing your parents under the bus

parentsAs harsh as such an action may seem, it is the actual outcome of genuine spiritual transformation.

According to scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg, when we transform our lives into spiritual/angelic beings, we then become the progeny of the Lord God. This also means detaching ourselves from the negative genetic influences (hereditary evils) given to us by our terrestrial parents.

This change in one’s life starts a whole new (and heavenly) genealogy and family tree. Instead of hair, eye or skin color, instead of height and body type, when God becomes your father, your personal characteristics will represent qualities of spiritual love and wisdom (these things rise above the attributes provided by human sperm and ovum).

Of course, our earthly parents can get out from under the bus if they, too, choose a spiritual path as well, and rise above the allurements and vanities of the physical world.

Who is your real parent?
