Support book project on 3100 mile Race !

My name is Stutisheel Lebedev, and I am a 9-time finisher of the world’s longest race – the 3100-Mile Self-Transcendence Race, that takes place annually in Queens, New York. For my best performance, it took me 48 days to complete the distance, averaging 64.3 miles per day. My participation in the 3100-Mile Race changed my life dramatically – I saw and became aware of many things that block or delay the movement towards my goals. For me, this extraordinary race is the best school of life (and also – concentrated life – when everything happens with great intensity and speed), where I can test and verify many approaches and discoveries in nutrition, equipment, but first of all – in the natural unfoldment of your hidden unlimited potential.

I would like to summarise my experiences and findings in a beautiful book for you to use in your daily striving for not giving up, going forward, and for your life’s eternal pursuit for happiness. I believe that we are truly happy only when we exercise our maximum capacities in sport, creativity, career, and family – in all aspects of life. These are the chapters I would like to include in my book as of today:

Discipline
Your own style
Enjoying each moment
Determination
Inner cry
Following your heart
Humor
Fullness of life
Beyond the boundaries
Best friends
Searching for the solutions
Necessity of relaxation for an efficient performance
Best personal example
Gratitude
One Power
Revealing secrets
Global picture of life
Mystery of the Big Race

With your sincere help of funding the publishing of my book, I will be able to spread the spirit of the 3100-Mile Self-Transcendence Race and inspire people to have faith in themselves and to believe that nothing is impossible. I see it as a BIG positive creative impact in everybody’s daily life. I request you not only to contribute the money-power, but to BE a part of this impact, spreading the message by personal example.

My goal is to have two books of the same content – one in English and the other – in Russian simultaneously. I will self-publish the books through Create Space. But my desire is to make it as professional and beautiful as possible. Therefore I will need to cover the following expenses:

•Editing, proof reading, and cover design work
•Translation
•Printing layout and e-book formatting
•Printing of the paper book itself
•Sales description, marketing campaigns and promotions
.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

If you would like to help me complete my book “Run. Journey. Become” and share my story with the world, please donate to this campaign:

5th Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City

parliament-Utah-2015

From October 15-19, 2015 some 10,000 devotees of 50 faith traditions from 80 countries are expected to fill the halls of the convention facility for the largest interfaith event in the world in Salt Lake City, Utah. Previous host cities for the event have included Chicago; Cape Town, South Africa; Barcelona; and Melbourne, Australia. This year, the fifth parliament since its first appearance more than 120 years ago in 1893 will be held in the city that is headquarters to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Parliament is coming here because we’re open to all people, to all religions, all faiths,” said Imam Mujahid, chairman of the parliament’s board of trustees and the first Muslim to be elected to the position. Some 7,500 people have already registered for the event. Among the featured speakers are two Nobel Peace Prize winners, former Costa Rican president Oscar Arias Sanchez and peace activist and native of Northern Ireland Mairead Maguire, co-founder of Peace People. Other planned speakers include world-renowned primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall; Chief Arvol Lookinghorse, spiritual leader of all three branches of the Sioux tribe; Utah native Terry Tempest Williams, author, conservationist and activist; and the Rev. Jim Wallis, founder and editor of Sojourners magazine. While some people attend the parliament to hear from global leaders and participate in dialogue with people of other faith traditions, the agenda also includes training sessions for people who lead interfaith groups or coalitions in their own communities or countries, Imam Mujahid said.

Water on Mars?

mars-water

Dark, narrow streaks on Martian slopes such as these at Hale Crater are inferred to be formed by seasonal flow of water on contemporary Mars. The streaks are roughly the length of a football field. The imaging and topographical information in this processed, false-color view come from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. These dark features on the slopes are called “recurring slope lineae” or RSL. Planetary scientists using observations with the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer on the same orbiter detected hydrated salts on these slopes at Hale Crater, corroborating the hypothesis that the streaks are formed by briny liquid water. The image was produced by first creating a 3-D computer model (a digital terrain map) of the area based on stereo information from two HiRISE observations, and then draping a false-color image over the land-shape model. The vertical dimension is exaggerated by a factor of 1.5 compared to horizontal dimensions. The camera records brightness in three wavelength bands: infrared, red and blue-green. The draped image is one product from HiRISE observation ESP_03070_1440.

Today is “International Day For Gratitude”

World Gratitude1993-01-xxPhilippinesCebu_sri-chinmoy-medi Day is celebrated annually on the 21st of September, encouraging individuals and organizations to celebrate the broad meaning of gratitude. From the perspective of Humanism, gratitude is a ubiquitous human emotion or state of awareness shared by those of all faith and non-faith perspectives; the habit of routine thoughtfulness and mindful living includes creating meaningful, personal traditions to honor others and ourselves.

The celebration began in 1965 in Hawaii at a Thanksgiving dinner for the United Nations Meditation Group hosted by its director, Sri Chinmoy. He proposed a globally unifying holiday to formally express gratitude and appreciation for the many wonderful things to be found around the world. Each attendee pledged to hold a gratitude gathering each September 21 in their own country. The United Nations Meditation Group formally celebrated World Gratitude Day on September 21, 1977 at the New York Headquarters where Sri Chinmoy was honored for his work. Since its beginnings World Gratitude Day has been observed in many countries around the world.

The awareness of the benefits of having time in one’s life for gratitude, appreciation, and positive reflection have become increasingly apparent. The hope of the founders of Gratitude Day is that by taking time, one day a year, to reflect on the many amazing things we have in our lives, it would positively impact our well-being and make us happier, more contended people.

Russia and Hungary don’t want GMO-Food

At the same time that Monsanto’s corruption is infiltrating every corner of U.S. academia, government regulators and corporate-controlled media, Russia has just announced a total ban on the cultivation of GMO crops. “A senior Russian government member told reporters the cabinet decided that any food production in the country will completely exclude any genetically-modified organisms or parts thereof,” reports RT.com: According to official statistics the share of GMO in the Russian food industry has declined from 12 percent to just 0.01 percent over the past 10 years, and currently there are just 57 registered food products containing GMO in the country. The law ordering obligatory state registration of GMO products that might contact with the environment will come into force in mid-2017.” This puts Russia in a powerful position of producing nearly 100% non-GMO foods for both domestic consumption and export. By the way, most consumers around the world, when given a choice, prefer to eat non-GMO foods.

Hungary is also working hard to produce GMO-free food products for its own people. As reported on GMO.news: Hungary’s Ministry of Agriculture believes that keeping Hungarian agriculture GMO-free is a matter of “extremely high strategic importance.” In fact, Hungary’s Constitution states that: Hungary shall promote the effective application of the right referred to in Paragraph (1) by an agriculture free of genetically modified organisms, by ensuring access to healthy food and drinking water, by organising safety at work and healthcare provision, by supporting sports and regular physical exercise, as well as by ensuring the protection of the environment.
