The Author

Ronald L. Cole, M.D. went from Civil Engineer to Obstetrician/Gynecologist to birth advocate doing underwater births in the hospital – see website: and longtime spiritual researcher and author. Early on he was a co-founder of the Spina Bifida Association of America after serving as president of the Houston Spina Bifida Association. He assisted with the development of plastic orthopedic braces at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, TX. His detailed scientific research into the spiritual aspects of life has extended over 50 years. He realized that knowledge and teaching from mankind’s physical side of life mostly comes from a self-serving, false, controlling and prejudicial basis. Real truth bypasses that and comes from highly evolved spiritual entities in the everlasting or spiritual side of life when he learned about channeling. This started a 20-year working relationship with Rev. Beverly Burdick-Carey, an ordained minister and the most highly evolved and certified medium he worked with. She channeled, Quan Yin, and that resulted in this book and well over 500 audio tapes covering most aspects of life. His scientific research has been evaluated by many other sources, logic, consistency over years and applying what he had learned to his personal life and medical practice, convinced him of the research’s validity. He simply asked you to keep an open mind. Dr. Cole has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and appeared on radio and television shows in Houston, Texas and around the country. He has presented at many conferences and meetings and produced three educational birthing videos (vaginal, cesarean and underwater birth) and a subliminal tape for enlightenment and growth. Dr. Cole’s life has involved many challenging and fun experiences and activities. He played a number of high school and college sports and earned numerous college academic scholarships and awards. He received a BS and MS degree in Civil Engineering and later an MD degree all from the University of Missouri. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army. He enjoyed numerous other sports including snow and barefoot water skiing, SCUBA diving, swimming up-close and personal with humpback whales, whale sharks and manatees and motorcycle riding. He also enjoys photography, artwork and travel, including photo safaris to Africa and Alaska. He organized and participated in an official world record skydive and he owned a recreational ranch in Texas. Dr. Cole is now retired from practice and lives with his wife, Karen, and works full time on his writing in Texas.
