About the Author

Roy Masters—who in his 80s continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history—started his journey toward understanding human nature in the most unlikely of places. Growing up in pre-WWII England, he watched a performer easily put his volunteer subjects under a hypnotic spell and induced each of them to do strange and outlandish things. How, the young Roy wondered, could a smiling, personable stranger cause well-dressed, educated, competent adults to forget their names? Puzzled by the mysterious power the hypnotist had exercised over his subjects, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: “Why can’t hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly?” Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice. 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. For over 50 years Roy counsels people primarily through his internationally syndicated daily radio program Advice Line, where callers discuss their most intimate problems and find genuine help and healing. He has served as a daily voice of sanity and conscience to his listeners, with the uncanny ability to zero in quickly on core problems. As the institutional home for his counseling work, Masters’ formed the Foundation of Human Understanding in 1961. Through his daily radio broadcasts, lectures, seminars, his 18 books, countless audio and video programs—and the Internet—he has helped millions worldwide. 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.

I just started reading this book on KINDLE after 'discovering ' Roy Masters via a youtube link.Must say I am impressed so far at his ability to clarify, and explain principles of human nature that no one else ever has.And that this man has been helping people for 52 years boggles the mind- that he is not on Tv , but then that figures in this world. I am looking forward to the rest of the book, now I wish I had bought the actual book .

Your mind can make you well: much of our illnesses are caused by our attitudes. Even doctors will tell you over 90% of illness is stressed caused. This book, if the exercise is faithfully followed, helps the "patient" become more patient, kinder, more objective towards life experiences. This helps calm and destress. Definitely a book
worth buying: with action taken you can bypass all this health insurance chaos by allowing gratitude for life and peacefulness make you well without medicine or intrusive procedures.

If you are to read one more book in your lifetime, this is it! If your soul has been searching for a real solution to your problems then this is where the solution begins. This book provides the key to a better life, based on understanding of the Truth. The Truth is within us yet we do not REALIZE IT, or sometimes we see the truth but we cannot live under its guidance. We are trapped doing the things we 'know' are not right and as a result our lives are filled with all sorts of problems. We need to find the way to a place where we can realize the Truth and live by it! This book is a guide to the place in our minds where we can realize the Truth and live by it and henceforth, watch our troubles fall away, find relief from our bondage with what we 'knew' was wrong and experience how our Minds can make us well!

I guess I don't understand why Roy puts so much emphasis on being and getting well physically. I know we all want that, and I know we've all been told that stress is a killer, but how can we be so sure that stress is the killer when there is no real evidence, other than what someone told us? The experts tell us that stuff. Jesus was a man of many sorrows. He was sick and diseased. He was in contact with very sick people all day long for 3-1/2 years. He got angry and he turned over tables. And yet He never sinned. He was a lamb without spot or blemish. So sickness and disease and dying from it, even, is not the result of a carnal mind, because if that were so, how in the world did all those carnal men back in the days of old (thinking of Cain who killed his brother) live for how many hundreds of years, and in fact, God even protected Cain from death by murder. And what about his father Adam? And Eve? They lived a very long time. It was Cain's brother who died relatively early. Being diseased or having an illness or infirmity is not always the result of some sin on the part of the sinner. (John 9:3)

Anyway, I really do enjoy Mr. Masters. He makes you really use your head. Maybe a little too much. If I can make my self physically well through the works of meditation--great but who has ever kept themselves from dying? (I mean, I know we're told to first get the log out of our own eye so we can see clearly to be able to get the splinter (log) out of our brother's eye, but we're not promised a life of physical health by Jesus but the renewing of our minds -- we are transformed, not made physically well, because we are all dying (it is a appointed to every man to die once and then the judgment). We're promised something far greater than no strokes or heart disease, etc.
