“Know that I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before my day comes, that great and terrible day. He shall turn the hearts of the fathers towards their children and the hearts of children towards their fathers, lest I strike the land with the curse.”
Because the command to “honor your father and your mother” is deeply encoded in every child’s psyche, any guilt arising from hostility toward parents compels some children to first conceal, then deny, their shame. This invariably causes the volatile rage to internalize itself inside the child. Then the unavoidable happens, the child begins a life-long, quicksand-like struggle to regain its parents’ love by one means or another.
Almost all demoralized children grow up to be broken, demoralizing parents. They eventually engineer in their own children the very same harm. Try to understand that you have inherited this proclivity. It is all a matter of programming, unconscious, compulsive and unstoppable — that is, until you find the truth that sets you free.
Children, without ever being taught, associate fathers with God. The way a person feels about the father they can see tends to be the way they feel about the God they cannot see. Positively, the genuine love of father becomes a roundabout way of embracing God, the wordless truth within.

Dear Friends; I dislike asking for financial support, but, at the same time, I have realized that, if I do not properly express the pressing financial needs that do exist, the FHU could simply cease to exist, and separately, I would have denied my listeners the chance to have grace in both supporting my program, and the organization I founded over 50 years ago, and “Paying Forward” to others the help they’ve received throughout the years. Today I ask for your support in helping me help others, especially our active service members, military veterans, first responders and their families. Suicides from PTSD are down from 22 to 20 per day. But that’s 20 per day too many. You can help me help them. I deeply appreciate your ongoing support at this critical time. THANK YOU! Roy Masters
