Father and mother are the two highest sources of desire and the correct work with it. The desire to receive in order to bestow is the quality of father. Aspiration to rise only above your egoistic desire is the quality of mother.
But one who doesn’t perform correction at every moment will exist inside the uncorrected desire, and this is the curse.
In other words, there are no any material punishments and curses. The fact that we remain in our egoistic desires and exist in them is the punishment and curse.
