This book is about a very special form of meditation—a rediscovery of an ancient science that provides the answer to the serious problems of our time. Proper understanding of this technique is apparent only after you have submitted yourself to its discipline for a time. How short or how long a time, the author cannot predict. To some, enlightenment comes with sudden intensity. To others, it is a gradual unfolding.

Roy Masters, who in his 80s, continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history. "Advice Line," is an internationally syndicated daily radio program where callers discuss their most intimate problems and find genuine help and healing. For over 53 years, Roy has served as a daily voice of sanity and conscience to his listeners, with the uncanny ability to zero in quickly on core problems and help people take charge of their own lives. Over years of counseling as well as personal experience, Roy realized that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, and so he began to search for a way to help people overcome the hypnotic power of stress. After years of searching, he discovered a remarkably effective meditation method, and has been teaching it—with spectacular results—ever since. This “meditation exercise”—a simple observation technique called “Be Still and Know,” named after the Psalm “Be still and know that I am God”—is at the core not only of Masters’ unmatched track record in helping people overcome even the most serious mental-emotional problems, but now comprises the centerpiece of a successful program within the U.S. military (“Patriot Outreach”) that is aiding thousands of U.S. military personnel and their families overcome the ravages of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As the institutional home for his counseling work, Masters’ formed the Foundation of Human Understanding, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, in 1961. Through his daily radio broadcasts, lectures, seminars, his 18 books, countless audio and video programs—and now, over the Internet—he has helped millions worldwide, including many celebrities like the late John Wayne, extricate themselves from vexing personal problems, substance abuse and emotional traumas. He has also established a successful prison outreach and an innovative private K-12 school. Beyond all this, and at a time in life when most people would have long since retired, an energetic Roy Masters is delving deeply into yet another long-time interest—physics and cosmology. He has authored “Finding God in Physics” as well as a more technical treatise, “Gravity Driven Universe” and has lectured on “Electricity from Gravity” at the American Physical Society in Denver. Roy Masters and his wife Ann have been married since 1952. They have five grown children and 18 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
