Rated 4.25/5 based on 4 reviews
When Nicolaus Copernicus discovered the Earth wasn’t the center of the Universe, everything changed. When Frederick Miescher discovered DNA, everything changed again. When quantum physicists discovered our physical universe isn’t real, that it’s a hologram - everything ... wait! Nothing changed - yet. Now "Butterflies Are Free To Fly" offers a new and radical approach to spiritual evolution.

About Stephen Davis

In his sixty-five years, Stephen Davis has been (in chronological order) one of the co-creators of "Up With People," a Physician’s Assistant in the U.S. Army (Vietnam vet), a commercial airline pilot, an Arizona State Senator, an Aide to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology, President of an international management consulting firm (WISE), Director of Development and professor at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, computer software designer, horse whisperer, and captain of a whale and dolphin research ship.

He is the author of a number of books and won the George Washington Medal of Honor from Freedoms Foundation for his published article, "The Government Versus the Economy."

In his own words…

Like you, and many others, I’ve spent a lot of time in my life trying to find answers to some very simple questions:

 Who am I?
 Where did I come from?
 How did I get here?
 What am I doing here?
 Why is my life the way it is?

My personal quest began at age nineteen when I went to work with Edgar Cayce’s son at the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. I took the opportunity to study as many of Cayce’s “readings” as I could from their original transcripts.

From there I went deeper into parapsychological and psychic research, meeting and talking with such notables (at the time) as Dr. J.B. Rhine, who founded the first parapsychology lab at Duke University; Ruth Montgomery ("A Search for Truth"); and Lynn Schroeder and Sheila Ostrander ("Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain"). By the time I reached my twenty-fifth birthday, I owned a theosophical library of several thousand books.

In the next decade I would become a personal “Aide” to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology and achieve “OT6” status.

By the time I turned forty-five, I had also dabbled in "A Course in Miracles," Urantia, Eckankar, channeling, Kundalini Yoga, meditation, Numerology, astrology, Tai Chi, Focusing, and Rosicrucianism.

I read all the “Seth” books, along with Walsch's "Conversations with God" and Sitchin’s "Earth Chronicles." I attended numerous self-help seminars and workshops, tried "The Secret," listened to Abraham, watched "What the Bleep Do We Know," and learned everything I could from Peter Marshall, John Bradshaw, Sai Baba, Krishnamurti, Deepak Chopra, Eckart Tolle, and others.

I even studied conventional religions — Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. — and at one time planned on becoming an Episcopal priest.

In the end I still couldn’t find a satisfactory answer to even one of my simple questions — at least not an answer that worked well enough for me and everyone else to create a happy and fulfilling life on a continuous and daily basis.

But I knew there had to be some grain of truth in most of these spiritual philosophies — sometimes well hidden and hard to get at, but some truth none the less. Yet no single philosophy or practice or technique worked for very long, or satisfied me, or produced the kind of life I longed for or believed was possible. Something was just a little “off” in every one of them that seemed like it wasn’t really true, and made both the “old-age” and “new-age” theories come up short.

So I kept searching, putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle, using pieces from everything I had learned along this spiritual journey; and I began to scout a new path toward serenity of being. I now have those answers I so desperately needed and wanted, and the jigsaw puzzle is virtually finished. The result is my latest book, "Butterflies Are Free To Fly: A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution."

Review by: Asha Anand on Oct. 20, 2016 :
Stephen, I read this book out of curiosity and I liked your simplified explanation of quantum theory and various quotations that you have used. However I was disappointed that there was no mention of Upanishads, Bhagwat or Gita, probably because you could not find good English translations - if you had this would have made your journey very easy because they all answer the basic questions that you have raised in the same way (who am I? Where do I come from? What is the purpose of life? What is my role?). I related to your book by just replacing some words with those from Upanishads and Gita.
Even the concept of matrix is very old and was explained by Shankaracharya as "Brahma Satya Jaganmithya" which means that only Brahm is true and this World is it's manifestation. If you get a chance to read an unbiased translation of Vedas, Upanishads or just Gita it will explain a lot of mysteries of life.

I don't agree with Stan's review at all. I have already entered the cacoon stage in the book, and have read it 3 weeks, letting it sink in. I have already been through stages one and two, so it was easy to embark upon the journey in stage three. Immediately my dreams made more sense, and took on a different nature about them; being more direct, then they have been previously. This isn't an easy task, undoing the ego, layer by layer; yet I have already in my life known this could be done, yet wasn't sure how to complete my training. I feel like you are my personal mentor, at this stage, and I feel good about moving forward. It feels right and my subconscious and mind both tell me this is the way forward. I appreciate the time you dedicated to those of us who have hope of moving forward, in this dreamlike hologram...

How do you know but ev'ry Bird that cuts the airy way,
Is an immense world of delight, clos'd by your senses five?

I prefer Matrix I. You seem to miss out on love, and joy (amalgam of life and love), and abundant beauty, and the wonders that surround us, countless animals, many never seen with human eyes, others expressing such order and harmony (which results in beauty) as to make our life right here, on Earth, heaven. The 'Infinite I' does not create holograms in which a gestapo thug kicks a pregnant woman in the stomach just to enjoy the emotional feedback from the scene. Nothing Infinite could possibly be that perverted.

But it's fun reading, and your concept might amuse Hollywood directors. If that was the intent, good luck! As for quantum theory, I believe it was Richard Feynman who said that anyone who claims to understand it is a liar. In a year or two, it will change. Another scientist, I believe rightly, observed that anyone who wants to reduce reality to a single equation, as in 'theory of everything' to which quantum mechanics aspire, is shortchanging god. If we find the answer today, what shall we do for the rest of Eternity? (I know, time doesn't exist, but what shall we do for the Infinity of 'NOWs"?

Thank you Stephen. I devoured your book. It tied up a few "loose ends" for me regarding my Busting Loose work. I have been so joyful reading it and recognizing that it is a truth that resonates deeply with me.
I appreciate your personal insights and sharing.
Thanks again for a brilliant read.
Keep writing!!!
