Husbands and Fathers
William LePar's spiritual source, The Council offers advice to husbands and fathers.
The Council: In respects to creating a relationship or assuming the responsibility of a relationship between you and your family, you must take into consideration that at times a good father is a strong disciplinarian. Children lean heavily on parents, and parents should be strong for their children. The problem with the world today and this is in a general sense is that most parents are weak, mushy, formless forms of existence. They say no and yet they do nothing to strengthen that no. A good parent will say no and that is no. Since children lean strongly on their parents, and it is necessary then for the parents to be strong, strong enough to support those children, then when a parent says this is the limit, then that parent must be strong enough to prove to that child that that is the limit.
In relationship to a spouse, a husband should be willing to share with a wife. He is not her king; he is her provider, and he is her caretaker. He also must share with her. If a husband can tend to the needs of his spouse, if he can be willing to support her and yet allow her to express herself, if he can back her and be faithful to her, then his relationship can do nothing but evolve to a much more healthier and productive relationship, one that is steeped in genuine happiness. But a husband must give to his wife what he would like to have returned. A husband is the seed planter in a family. The wife takes that seed and brings it to full fruit. Just as a man and a woman unite to provide a ground or a foundation for another entity to experience a growth cycle, so must a husband and wife unite to produce a period or situation of
growth for both of them, so that their love will evolve to a more fulfilling expression for each. The problem with too many husbands who would normally fall in the realm of being a good husband is they are far too domineering, and it is because it is a sense of insecurity. No husband can hang on to his position or his wife if he is domineering, so it is futile attitude. If he looks at his wife as a fully productive individual, equal to him, then he and she will bind themselves together much more deeply than if he attempts to hold her to him.
