This is the inspiring true story of Robert Crown’s amazing journey out of the darkness of his childhood and into a world brightly illuminated by the power of positive understanding and purposeful thought. It’s the story of rejecting the victimhood he once embraced and finding the answers that allowed him to embrace the power to create a new life using universal spiritual laws.
How does a child’s life change when his mother tries to murder him? It’s one of the most profound betrayals imaginable, and it can follow the victim into adulthood, into all he does with his life, tainting his sense of self and his relationships with others. How does a man’s life change when he discovers that with his thoughts, his imagination, and his ability to listen to his higher self, he has the power to overcome the devastating events of his past and build a new life and a family?
After living through the events depicted in his self-transformational memoir, Suffering Ends when Awakening Begins, Robert succeeded in breaking the cycle of dysfunction handed down from earlier generations in his family and the limitations to success tied up in that. Robert Crown was born in Chicago and raised in the northwest suburbs. Despite all he went through in his youth even when he escaped premature births to the afterlife more than six times, he overcame his trials and learned the importance of helping his family, friends, and those around him. Robert has studied spirituality for more than thirty years, and as an adult, he has volunteered to in community service organizations and has worked with youth and seniors. He has also served on the board of directors of his local chamber of commerce and is currently serving as President of his local Toastmasters club. His curiosity and love of travel have taken him to Japan six times.
He is married, and together they have four beautiful children whom he teaches to think for themselves and to use their thoughts to create the lives they want. He still lives in the Chicago area, where he has owned and operated a residential real estate brokerage for fifteen years.
