"PURSUE REAL HOPE; Discover Better Living Despite Your Pain," Book is released on June 15 on Amazon.

I had empathy for patients over the years who came into my office for relief from their pain, but it wasn’t until I started experiencing the disabling agony myself that I could relate to their plight.”

— Gordon Selley

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “PURSUE REAL HOPE; Discover Better Living Despite Your Pain,” written by former Chiropractor, Pilates Instructor and now a chronic pain patient, Dr. Gordon Selley, and his wife, successful real estate executive, Cherise Selley, will be released and available on Amazon beginning June 15, 2021.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 50 million American adults, that is one in every five Americans, struggle with chronic pain. “I had empathy for thousands of patients over the years who came into my office for some form of relief from their pain, but it wasn’t until I started experiencing the disabling effects of ceaseless agony myself that I could sincerely relate to their plight,” stated Dr. Gordon Selley. After several neck surgeries and living with chronic pain, Selley married his second wife, Cherise, in 1996. Diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) and other debilitating ailments, Gordon’s pain continued to grow. Nevertheless, through resilient faith, the Colorado Springs couple has navigated straight through the painful battles that first made a future seem hopeless. After 25 years, they have built an enjoyable, abundant, and fulfilling life together. “Gordon and I are grateful to share some of the deep treasures that we have uncovered throughout our pain-filled journey, ranging from Gordon’s physical suffering to my emotional wreckage from watching someone I loved who was hurting and I knowing I couldn’t make things better. We discovered that there are real, practical answers about your chronic suffering hidden within the mysteries of your faith,” adds Cherise.

The couple hosts a successful podcast program, “The Gordon & Cherise Show,” on Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple iTunes. You can find links and more information on their website www.gordonandcherise.com
“PURSUE REAL HOPE; Discover Better Living Despite Your Pain” is published by BOSS Media. Hardcover, Kindle, and Audio versions of the book can be ordered through Amazon.

NYC Reopening Celebration in Times Square with NYPD and Metro World Child

Metro World Child Sunday School celebrated New York CIty Reopening in Times Square with NYPD

Metro World Child and NYPD celebrated New York City reopening with joy, fun, and love after 16 months in the Covid pandemic

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Times Square, synonymous with New York, got a special visit from Metro World Child Sunday School Program on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. As part of celebrations for the reopening of New York City, New York Police Department invited Metro World Child (Metro) to bring good fun and joy to the streets.

Metro’s staff members dressed in bright neon T-shirts, distributed candies and fliers, and had several highly engaging sessions from their iconic yellow Metro sidewalk truck at the center of Times Square. There were interactive games, Bible stories, prayer, and raffles for a TV, a laptop, and a hoverboard as part of the celebration. There were over several hundred kids and adults from all over the world participated in their programs today.

Some former Metro kids joined the celebration. Veronica Jimenez, a women’s conference speaker now, who attended Metro’s program 40 years ago when she was 12 years old, said “Attending Metro’s program was the only happy memory I had growing up in an abusive environment in Brooklyn. I can’t imagine how my life would have turned out without it. I am so thrilled to see Metro is still serving the city today after 40 years.” Quite a few locals came to the staff members to share their Metro story when they were a child, including a security guard in Times Square.

Pastor Bill Wilson, the founder of Metro World Child in his opening address with the NYPD told the crowd, “Metro continued to serve New York City during the pandemic through the food pantry and online children’s program. We are excited to celebrate the city reopening and ready to go back to the street to serve the kids!”

At 72, still driving the school bus to pick up kids for Sunday school, Pastor Bill said, “Out of my own painful experiences as a child, one man made a difference in my life, putting me on the path to do the same thing for children all over the world who are just like I was. That’s what I’ve spent my entire adult life doing. I am grateful that I can continue to serve New York City and this great country I love.”

About Metro World Child
Metro World Child is a global, faith-based humanitarian organization dedicated to serving children throughout New York City, various urban centers and rural communities around the world.

Metro World Child, was founded in 1980 in Brooklyn, New York by Reverend Dr. Bill Wilson. His original passion when he moved to New York was to reach at-risk, inner-city children exposed to violence, crime, drugs, gangs, neglect and poverty. As an abandoned child himself by his alcoholic mom when he was 12 at the street corner in St Petersburg, Florida, he knows the desperation of hopelessness at the young age. His heart was to reach children through high-impact, fun and exciting Sunday School services.

Now, 40 years later, Metro World Child is still headquartered in the heart of Brooklyn, reaching thousands of inner-city children and their families through fun and engaging Sunday School services, personal visitation and mentorship programs in the 5 boroughs of New York City. Before Covid, Metro served on average over 20,000 children in New York each week. Their global outreach now is much greater though; they are currently in a total of 13 countries, reaching over 250,000 children weekly. Metro World Child is now the largest Sunday School in the world.

Transdisciplinary Sociologist and Transcultural Theorist, Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, Ph.D.

Today, June 10, 2021, begins a two-year period for joyful celebration and commemoration of Omar Khayyam’s life, works, and legacy!

Omar Khayyam’s true dates of birth and passing were joyfully discovered by someone of his own Iranian descent just in time before his birth millennium and his passing's forthcoming ninth centennial.”

— Sociologist and Author, Mohammad H. Tamdgidi

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Omar Khayyam was born a thousand solar years ago today, on June 10, AD 1021 (Gregorian), at sunrise of Neyshabour, Iran. He passed away a centenarian at the solar age of 102 on his birthday, June 10, AD 1123 (Gregorian) in Neyshabour, closing “the circle of coming and going” of his life.

In commemoration of Omar Khayyam’s true birth date millennium and forthcoming ninth centennial of passing, transdisciplinary sociologist of Iranian descent Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, Ph.D., has begun releasing in a planned 12-book series, commonly titled “Omar Khayyam’s Secret: Hermeneutics of the Robaiyat in Quantum Sociological Imagination,” the results of his decades-long research on Khayyam, the enigmatic 11th/12th centuries Persian Muslim sage, philosopher, astronomer, mathematician, physician, writer, and poet from Neyshabour, Iran, whose life and works still remain behind a veil of deep mystery.

Tamdgidi’s purpose has been to find definitive answers to the many puzzles still surrounding Khayyam, especially regarding the existence, nature, and purpose of the Robaiyat in his life and works. To explore the questions posed, he has advanced a new hermeneutic method of textual analysis, informed by what he calls the quantum sociological imagination, to gather and study all the attributed philosophical, religious, scientific, and literary writings of Khayyam.

Tamdgidi’s discovery of Omar Khayyam’s true dates of birth and passing (AD 1021-1123) were recently reported in Book 2 of his 12-volume series. The first three books of the series were simultaneously released on June 1, 2021, and are now available from major online bookstores and many university library databases worldwide, and from OKCIR: Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research.

In terms of method, the series and its findings were made possible by unriddling the quantum enigma in transdisciplinary sociology as reported in an earlier study published by OKCIR last year, titled “Liberating Sociology: From Newtonian Toward Quantum Imaginations: Volume 1: Unriddling the Quantum Enigma” (Jan. 2020), also authored by Tamdgidi. The series on Khayyam serves as an applied setting to demonstrate the fruitfulness of the research findings reported in the earlier book on the quantum enigma.

As the author explains in detail in Book 2, the currently held dates of birth and passing for Omar Khayyam (AD 1048-1131) are entirely and demonstrably wrong, having also driven Khayyami studies astray for many decades. Ironically, according to Tamdgidi, Iran and the world have been commemorating the legacy of a genius (among other talents) calendar reformer from Iran—someone who, now we know as a senior scholar, led a team of distinguished astronomers to reestablish a solar calendar in Iran that is still the most precise in the world—on erroneous and in part absurdly conjectured birth and death calendar dates.

Tamdgidi has also reported in Book 3 of the series his discovery for the first time of the origins of Omar Khayyam's "tent-maker" pen name, which became possible also due to the discovery of Khayyam's true birth date that offered an accurate knowledge of the geometry of his correct birth horoscope.

Tamdgidi has further discovered, as reported also in Book 3 of the series, a non-"wandering" signature quatrain accurately pointing to the whereabouts of the correct Gemini degree in its composer's birth chart as it has now been discovered, a quatrain that also hints at the intended composition of a 1000-Robaiyat divan. Another Khayyami quatrain that has traditionally been ignored or dismissed telling of its composer's having turned hundred in age was also found to be definitively traceable to Omar Khayyam. Per Tamdgidi’s findings, a sample translation and reading of fifty more or less ignored Khayyami quatrains also revealed that in fact they are traceable to Omar Khayyam; this finding became possible because of having learned how essential (not incidental) highly nuanced critical engagement with traditional astrology was in composing the Robaiyat. Tamdgidi write, “all this now call for a need for hermeneutic reconsideration of all extant Khayyami quatrains.”

Today, June 10, 2021, begins a two-year period for joyful celebration and commemoration of Omar Khayyam’s life, works, and legacy, one that begins from his true birth date millennium and will culminate on the ninth centennial of the true date of his passing two years from now, on June 10, 2023.

According to Tamdgidi, “it will be a while before interested scholars and Khayyam lovers worldwide will appreciate the accuracy and significance of the new findings being reported in my new series. But, it is now a matter of historical record that Omar Khayyam’s true dates of birth and passing were joyfully discovered by someone of his own Iranian descent just in time before the millennium of his birth and the soon forthcoming ninth centennial of his passing.”

——————————————————————
Every single breath that in your lifetime passes,
Breathe it as if everything its joy surpasses!
Beware that the world’s prime wealth are your breaths of life!
So, spend their coins such that joyfulness amasses!
— Omar Khayyam (Tamdgidi translation)

President Biden’s Deputy Assistant to Speak on Anti-Asian Hate Crimes for G20 Interfaith Forum

G20 Interfaith Forum continues Its Anti-Racism Initiative with an online webinar with leaders focusing on combatting Asian hate and overcoming discrimination.

Across our nation, an outpouring of grief and outrage continues at the horrific violence and xenophobia perpetrated against Asian American communities, especially Asian American women.”

— Erika Moritsugu

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — President Joe Biden’s newly appointed Deputy Assistant, Erika Moritsugu, will address anti-Asian hate and discrimination in an upcoming public webinar hosted by the G20 Interfaith Forum Association (IF20). Moritsugu, along with five other distinguished leaders, will present at 11:00 am EDT on June 10, 2021. This webinar is one of the many actions IF20 is taking as part of its Anti-Racism Initiative. The official theme for the webinar will be: “Responses to Anti-Asian Hate Crimes.”

Moritsugu was appointed by President Joseph R. Biden in April 2021 to serve as Deputy Assistant to the President and Asian American (AA) and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) Senior Liaison. She supports the Administration on a wide array of priorities and engages with AA and NHPI communities and leaders through a whole-of-government approach to racial justice.

“Across our nation, an outpouring of grief and outrage continues at the horrific violence and xenophobia perpetrated against Asian American communities, especially Asian American women and girls,” Moritsugu said. “As President Biden said during his first prime time address, anti-Asian violence and xenophobia is wrong, it’s un-American, and it must stop.”

Other featured speakers include:
• Grace Meng, U.S. Congresswoman representing the 6th Congressional District of New York in the United States House of Representatives
• Jacinta S. Ma, Director of the Office of Communications and Legislative Affairs, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
• David Chiu, California Assemblymember representing the 17th Assembly District of the State of California (San Francisco)
• Carl Chan, President of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce, Community Activist, Crime Victim
• Audrey Kitagawa, Moderator, Chair of the G20 Interfaith Anti-Racism Initiative

These speakers each work in their respective fields to create a society of welcoming and belonging for all people. The webinar will provide a platform for mutual discussion and learning—recognizing what Asian-Americans have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“For more than a year, Asian Americans have been fighting two viruses: the COVID-19 pandemic and anti-Asian hate,” said U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng. “The COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act that I introduced with Senator Mazie Hirono was signed into law last month by President Biden, and it will go a long way towards combatting this rise in xenophobia and racist attacks.”

“In order to recover from and repair the harm to our communities, we need to share our experiences with each other and with those outside of our community,” Assemblymember David Chiu said. “Confronting these awful incidents head-on strengthens us and chips away at the ignorance, fear and racism that has spurred these acts of hate.”

“What I want to make sure everyone understands, when things happen to you, be calm and understand how to protect yourself as much as you can,” Carl Chan of the OCCC stated. “I had to stand strong. I cannot be allowing myself to be a victim, or other people to become victims of crime. So that is the reason why I have to speak out.”

“A strong, successful society is built on ensuring people feel welcome and recognized for their contributions,” added Jacinta Ma of the EEOC. “Violence, harassment, and discrimination because someone is or is perceived to be of Asian descent must not be tolerated. Governments, leaders, and individuals all have a role to play in addressing anti-Asian violence.”

IF20 recognizes the importance of protecting human rights for all in today’s global community, and is committed to doing its part to combat racism in all forms through its Anti-Racism Initiative. The Initiative assumes explicit responsibility to work towards the eradication of racism within both the IF20 and the G20 agendas; and to advance the goal of racial equality and equity by every means available. IF20 commits to honoring the universal principle enshrined in various forms in all religious and spiritual traditions, further affirmed in principle by secularists and humanists: “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”

About the G20 Process

Collectively, G20 members represent around 80 percent of the world’s economic output, two-thirds of the global population and three-quarters of international trade. Throughout the year, representatives from G20 countries gather to discuss financial and socioeconomic issues as well as broader humanitarian issues targeted by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Seattle Church of Scientology Volunteers Care for One of the City’s Famous Greenspaces

On World Environment Day 2021, volunteers from the Seattle Church of Scientology helped restore Kinnear Park by digging up and chopping out invasive species.

On World Environment Day 2021, volunteers from the Seattle Church of Scientology helped restore Kinnear Park by digging up and chopping out invasive species.

The Scientology Environmental Task Force officially adopted Kinnear Park through the Seattle Parks and Recreation program and has contributed thousands of volunteer hours to improving the park.

The Scientology Environmental Task Force officially adopted Kinnear Park through the Seattle Parks and Recreation program and has contributed thousands of volunteer hours to improving the park.

Marking World Environment Day, Seattle Scientologists’ hands-on work helps restore the natural balance of Kinnear Park.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In celebration of World Environment Day June 5, Seattle’s Church of Scientology Environmental Task Force and local The Way to Happiness chapter took action, joining other nonprofit groups and neighbors for a community clean-up of Kinnear Park, a Seattle-designated landmark located in the Queen Anne area.

Over two decades ago, the Scientology Environmental Task Force officially adopted Kinnear Park through the Seattle Parks and Recreation program and has contributed thousands of volunteer hours to improving the park since that time.

On June 5, forest steward and Task Force coordinator Dave Scattergood supervised two dozen volunteers who worked to help restore the park’s natural balance by removing weeds and invasive plants near the entrance to the park so existing native plants can thrive. “As those plants continue to grow they will be better able to keep out invasive plants in the future,” said Scattergood.

The volunteers’ hard work aligned with this year’s World Environment Day theme, “Reimagine, Recreate, Restore,” and the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030).

According to the Washington Native Plant Society, “Invasive non-native plants compete with native plants in many ways including occupying space, changing the structure of the plant community, causing physical and chemical alterations of the soil, and covering and shading native plants. Invasive plants interfere with animal life too, by altering the structure of their habitat and by eliminating favored food plants through competition.” They also “hog sunlight and water, out-compete for space and nutrients, and even prevent growth and reseeding of native plants through chemical emissions.”

The Foundation and Task Force use The Way to Happiness to promote awareness of the need to care for the environment and encourage others to take part in the work of keeping Seattle green. The Way to Happiness is a nonreligious common-sense moral code written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. One of its precepts is “Safeguard and Improve your Environment,” which states:

“There are many things one can do to help take care of the planet. They begin with the idea that one should. They progress with suggesting to others they should. Man has gotten up to the potential of destroying the planet. He must be pushed on up to the capability and actions of saving it.”

In addition to their work restoring Kinnear Park, the Task Force and Seattle’s The Way to Happiness volunteers continue their 30-year commitment to Seattle’s Adopt-a-Street program, cleaning streets near the Seattle Center throughout the year.

For more information on the Church of Scientology Seattle, visit their website at www.scientology-seattle.org. The founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard, and its ecclesiastical leader is Mr. David Miscavige, who dedicated the new home of the Church of Scientology Seattle in July 2010.

Hollywood Village cleanup targeted debris in Griffith Park to reduce a chance of a wildfire and avoid the kind of damage created by last month’s Palisades Fire.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — After last year’s record California fire season and the devastation created by the Palisades Fire in May 2021, fire prevention inspired a Hollywood Village neighborhood cleanup June 5, which appropriately coincided with World Environment Day.

Last year, drought contributed to California suffering five of the six largest fires in the state’s recorded history. Drought was also a factor in fire season beginning early for the Greater Los Angeles Area this year. The Palisades Fire, which began in Topanga State Park near Santa Monica May 14, burned 1,325 acres and took 12 days to contain. This fire prompted Ralph M. Terrazas, Los Angeles Fire Department Chief, to tell reporters, “I think we really have to think about brush fires as a year-round challenge.”

Before the cleanup, organizers met with Griffith Park Rangers to determine what help they need to reduce the risk of fire in the park. The rangers were most concerned about several abandoned campsites that were full of debris. The Hollywood Village cleanup began at 9 a.m. at the L.A. Zoo Parking Lot on Zoo Drive, where volunteers received cleaning supplies and headed off for these targeted areas.

These cleanups are based on a precept of The Way to Happiness, a common-sense moral code by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, in which he stated:

“Care of the planet begins in one’s own front yard. It extends through the area one travels to get to school or work. It covers such places as where one picnics or goes on vacation. The litter which messes up the terrain and water supply, the dead brush which invites fire, these are things one need not contribute to and which, in otherwise idle moments, one can do something about.”

Hollywood Village cleanups are sponsored by a partnership of The Way to Happiness Foundation, the Church of Scientology, and the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Big Giveaway is a monthly event where New Jersey residents can get items they desperately need at no cost.

The Big Giveaway is our way of easing the burden on families and knitting our community back together again.”

Linda Johns of Journey to Healing to be Featured on Close Up Radio

TUCSON, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 2020 was noted as the year that time stood still and forced stillness upon us. Some of us felt stuck in fear and uncertainty, others became more self-aware, but we all felt a new appreciation for life itself and a growing desire to stand in our truth. The desire to create a new, more fulfilling life began to take hold.

So many of us have been living a life created not by our own wishes and goals. Now is the time we can begin to move forward, realign our priorities and begin to build a life created by our heart’s desires and passions for our lives. If we awaken to our unconscious patterns, we can break free by moving into conscious thought and choice and creating partnership with the Divine within.

Linda Johns is the founder of “Journey to Healing – A Bridge to Awareness and Truth”, where for over 25 years she has facilitated more than 10,000 individual sessions for both people and animals and has enjoyed teaching and sharing intuitive development, energy wisdom and healing classes.

Her breadth of experience includes a wide array of healing techniques and modalities, and she holds many certifications including those in PSYCH-K, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Soul Memory Discovery, Emotion Code, Animal Communication, Breath Work, Reiki Usui and Karuna Master /Teacher, Sound Healing and Quantum Coaching.

“Journey to Healing is my passion,” says Linda.

During the 2020 year of introspection, she realized that her work and heart’s desire was “Leading Adventures to Spirit.” In these amazing classes she leads the adventure inward away from the world we see in front of our eyes, to explore the spiritual world.

Linda feels that we all can go deeper in our own healing and personal growth when connect and feel safe with the practitioner we have chosen. This safe and sacred space is created as her clients immediately sense her compassionate heart and natural intuitive abilities as each session begins.

“The Truth is we all have so much potential within us, as we are each a Divine expression” says Linda “There are so many additional possibilities for us that we cannot see because we are so stuck in old identities. The goal is to release ourselves from the limiting beliefs that started at a young age and continued into our adulthood.”

Linda teaches us that once we can answer the question about what is stopping us from our best self, we have powerful information that can lead us to transformation and growth.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself,” says Linda. “That wise quote by George Bernard Shaw is so appropriate for these times. Now is the time to take that step and create the “you” that resides within. Let me help guide you on that exciting journey!”

Close Up Radio will feature Linda Johns in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on June 11h at 4pm EDT

Bruce Olav Solheim P.H.D.

A true memoir of contact with an ancient alien mystic
By Bruce Olav Solheim Ph. D

GLENDORA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Published by Boots to Books
Available in print and E-Book across all platforms

Anzar is an ancient alien mystic whom I have known most of my life and have been in weekly direct contact with since 2018. Anzar the Progenitor documents my spirit communication with this ancient alien, including his prophecies, sage advice, and commentary on the world. The book has extensive endnotes and includes my research on the nature of this communication through mediumship and my theory of how the alien world, the spirit world, and the quantum world are the same—a quantum nexus. We can no longer wait for government disclosure about UFOs and aliens. The time has come for personal revelation through a leap of consciousness in a new Era of Reconversion. We are all related and we are the aliens.

The Timeless Series

“Within the pages of this fascinating book cum journal, Bruce tiptoes into the realm of alien life, the visits from ‘out there’ to this planet – to Bruce Solheim. Aided by the illustrations of artist Gary Dumm, his experiences range from the year 1964 to the present, and it is his polished skill of communicating ‘scientifically’ (complete with quotes from important voices) as well as ‘paranormally’ that suffuses the veracity of his prose. He invites the reader into the ‘unknown’ and is able to bring belief, and acceptance, of his myriad possibilities, realizing that the spirit world, the alien world, and the quantum world are all the same. This is a very fine exploration of a more expansive ‘reality.’ It is bracing, challenging – and reassuring!” _ Grady Harp, Reviewer with Top Shelf Magazine
