When There Is No Doubt In Your Mind
You have conquered yourself
You conquer the Devil
You tap that ultimate source of energy
You transcend all elements of time
When there is no doubt in your mind
You cross through that thin membrane that separates you from your genius
Where new rivers of knowledge flow
Where insight will be projected upon the imagination in motion picture length
When absolute confusion is washed away
Where few men thread and wise men never go
That frame of mind that has driven scholars to suicide but you survive,
if you enter with no doubt in your mind, Its only once in-a-while that a man challenges for that frame of mind
Which sits at the bottom of the imagination
That place where the tree of knowledge grows
That place where the old thoughts die and the new thoughts grow
The step above the mentality of relativity
That place where the ideology can’t go
When there is no doubt in your mind
Since Ron had his spiritual awakening Ron has spent his life searching for the source of that spiritual force and has been through one trail after the other searching for the source of that spiritual power. After searching for thirty three years Ron says that he now realizes his search for this source of power was the strength that brought him through all those trails and tribulations he encountered on his journey. Only to find out that the source of the power that Ron was seeking was inside of him because of the spiritual encounter he had.
In1994 Ron was diagnosis with one of the worst cases of diabetes on record in the United States of America. One day after Ron was diagnosis with diabetes Ron said that a spiritual voice spoke to him and said “do as I say do and I will restore you back to your natural health.” Now some eighteen years later Ron has been restored back to his natural health and you can read all about Ron’s journey from his childhood to his cure in his Book, “No Mountain to High Too Climb” You can also enjoy some of Ron’s other books.
