We are in childhood in a condition of dependency … and supervision for some fourteen to twenty-one years … in no way a self-responsible … free-agent but an obedient dependent, expecting punishments and receiving rewards. To evolve out of this position … to … self-responsibility … requires a death and resurrection.
