About the Author

Brought up in fundamentalist Christianity, Lee & Steven Hager spent over twenty years as dedicated Christian teachers. Although their service to others was the most gratifying aspect of their lives, other important parts of the puzzle were missing. They were disappointed that their faith had not resulted in the deep and sustaining peace and joy they believed it should, and it failed to offer satisfying answers to their questions about Ultimate Reality. Eventually their continued questioning resulted in excommunication. They persisted in their search for several years, but kept finding the same disappointing answers. Frustrated by severe illnesses (Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus and brain surgery), family and financial problems, and their seeming failure to find God, they made a suicide pact. Before carrying it out, they prayed one last time, but this prayer, and the result, was very different than anything they had experienced before.

Instead of asking for what they wanted, they laid aside all their personal preferences and preconceived ideas. For the first time, they were willing to accept any message they received as long as it resulted in a connection with Source. The answer they got came from a most unlikely source: quantum physics. They suddenly realized that science and spirituality create a powerful synergy that can transform our lives. They discovered firsthand that the misery and fear we each experience is the direct result of our misperception of the universe and our place in it. When we replace our misperceptions, fear is replaced with joy.
