New Mind-blowing Experiment Confirms That Reality Doesn’t Exist If You Are Not Looking at It

According to a well-known theory in quantum physics, a particle’s behavior changes depending on whether there is an observer or not. It basically suggests that reality is a kind of illusion and exists only when we are looking at it. Numerous quantum experiments were conducted in the past and showed that this indeed might be the case.
Now, physicists at the Australian National University have found further evidence for the illusory nature of reality. They recreated the John Wheeler’s delayed-choice experiment and confirmed that reality doesn’t exist until it is measured, at least on the atomic scale. 


Pastor Jeremiah Steepek


Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service….only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him.

He asked people for change to buy food….NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the… church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit n the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.

As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation……..”We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek”…. The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation…..The homeless man sitting in the back stood up….. and started walking down the aisle…..the clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him….he walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment….

then he recited “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning…many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame…. he then said….Today I see a gathering of people…… not a church of Jesus Christ.

The world has enough people, but not enough disciples…when will YOU decide to become disciples? He then dismissed service until next week……. Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It’s something you live by and share with others.

Jason Lester partners with Mission_&_Mantra to launch the Limited Edition “The GREAT WALL” bracelet

On May 8th, 2014 ESPY Award Winner, Author and Ultra Endurance Athlete, Jason Lester accomplished a mission no one in the world has completed in the past 2,000 years. Lester, owner and founder of EP1C, inc. (EPIC5), humanitarian and fundraiser, ran 2,600 miles along The Great Wall of China – solo in a single attempt – in 83 days.

This mission was used as a platform to bring awareness and support to help fight malnutrition in kids.

Mission accomplished: Jason’s successful crossing supplied 50,000 kids nutrition supplements for one year.
The ”The Great Wall” Bracelet: “I’ve always worn prayer bracelets on my mission. From running across the United States, biking 5,000 miles across America and my recent challenge, running the length of The Great Wall. My bracelets have always been gifts from others as a source of protection and inspiration. It wasn’t untill one of my Chinese crew members gave me a prayer bracelet (see photos) on Day 25 as a token of good energy to stay on my Mission and to remind me of the Mantra I live. I thought to myself, prayer bracelets have always given me good energy, i’d like to share it with others so they too can be inspired.”
Jason has hand selected quality stones, authentic sandalwood from various regions of China and lava rock representing Hawaii, Jason’s training grounds. The hand made “The GREAT WALL” bracelet is housed with 3, 5 and 8 beads. The numbers have meaning to Jason.
83 = The amount of days it took Jason to complete his 2,600 mile mission along The Great Wall.
5 = Jason’s 5 Mantra’s | Wellness + Health + Love + Inspiration + Give
Over the next 30 days the team at Mission_&_Mantra will be selecting pillars in your community and gifting them with the “The GREAT WALL” bracelet as a source of inspiration to share their Mission and Mantra to others.
The team at Mission_&_Mantra are on a mission and it’s simple. Our mission is to use our gifts as a platform to inspire others to NEVER STOP | Believing, Dreaming, Giving, Learning and Loving – therefore we have partnered with The NEVER STOP Foundation and their INSP1RE.ORG mission – with the ultimate goal of you, the receiver of the “The GREAT WALL” bracelet – to “Pay it Forward” per say and INSP1RE others with your gifts. As Jason reminds us ” You do not need to be an award winner, Ironman, Ultraman or a World Champion in order to INSP1RE others to NEVER STOP.”
100% profits from the “The GREAT WALL” bracelet go to funding The NEVER STOP Foundation’s INSP1RE.ORG Global mission

You will not achieve #Greatness by taking the easy route in life.

There is no book, manual, class or similar that will teach you more in life then taking – The Road Less Traveled. If you want to release the beast within you are going to have to suffer – and suffering is the one thing people dislike the most. When you are challenged beyond belief your body and mind grows to elements that will not return to its original state. When you continously go Next Level you are stretching your mental capability to elements that allow you to supersede it’s previous stage. 

STOP playing around with weak sauce. Every single CHAMP1ON in this world completely annihilated their body and mind in training so that when it became game time – it is the Victory lap.

STOP saying you “Can’t” and start saying “I Will”. People flip cars, swim across islands, run across countries, are undefeated – have never lost a race! … Yes You Can.

((( It is all in your head )))

You don’t have it because you don’t really want it. You dream about wanting it – but you won’t put in the work to win that dream. You’ve let others doubt you, fear paralyze you, told you are to young to old too fat too skinny you’re not experienced enough … 


Be your own hero. 

Be your own cheerleader.  

Be your own inspiration. 

It’s your journey your life your mission your DREAMS others will not understand your drive. Your addiction.  Your hustle. Your desire for greatness and guess what? 


It’s You vs- You. You are your biggest fan and your biggest weakness. Put together a plan and DOMINATE it. Crush it, smash it, look at that plan like it’s trying to kill you and completely annihilated it.

And that’s when you will find your true Greatness. – jpl



An EP1C Christmas – HAPUNA100 Endurance Run

Christmas eve my buddy Caleb Says  “Jason I’ve attempted to run 100 miles on Hapuna Beach 19x in the past 3yrs. My best is 67 miles.  I either don’t have the right nutrition, right team to support me or mother nature took its toll. Everyone I tell my dream is to run 100 miles on the most amazing beach – either calls me crazy, I’m over doing myself or I should try something a bit easier for my first 100″

Me: Grab your gear and supplies and meet me at the lab. 1pm we had HAPUNA100 hats made.  2pm stocked the ice chest with ALL plant based food. 3pm reached Hapuna. 4pm we started on what would be one of the most epic 30hrs of my running career. 100 miles in the sand, 30hrs non stop with thousands on the beach cheering us on. Caleb has finally conquered his first 100 miler. With his 13 yr old son, Caleb jr. as our crew chief we ran through the night under the stars with waves crashing just feet away ALL to celebrate the birth of Christ.

NEVER STOP going after your dreams. It takes one person to believe in you and sometimes that one person is – You.

HAPUNA100 in the record books.

Ultra-endurance athlete Jason Lester ran 72 hours and 216 miles non-stop (no sleep ) to support Christmas for kids “CHA11ENGE Endurance Run”

Instead of a mad dash for the latest holiday sale, one Kona man challenged to himself and others to run for a good cause: to bring every keiki in need a gift for Christmas through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Endurance athlete and 2009 ESPY Award Winner Jason P. Lester ran for 72 hours straight to raise awareness for children in need in his community and raise money to buy them gifts for Christmas. 

Lester shares his reason for running to give back to kids in Kona, he is inspired to run in honor of his dear friend Kaleo Opiopio, who lost his fight to cancer.

The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands would like to thank Mr. Jason P. Lester for his big heart and courage to take on this huge challenge to raise awareness about the families that are not able to buy their children Christmas presents this year.

The Great Wall Run reaches Washington, DC

Last night was a very special moment for The Great Wall Run.

My partner MET-RX put on an amazing celebration ceremony here in Beijing and coordinated a special guest to honor myself and my team. Judith Heumann Special Advisor for International Disability Rights and Daniel Delk Embassy of the United States flew in from Washington DC for APEC and surprised our guest. 

In my heart I knew the Great Wall Run would be used as a platform to not only inspire China – but inspire the world that we must break down barriers.  That every single person in this world deserves equal opportunity despite their challenges, living conditions or current situation.  Every kid MUST have equal rights for an education.  Every Veteran MUST have equal rights on care. 

And the facts are – they are not.  And there are countries that shy away, hide and disregard these amazing souls as if they are non existent. 

I will dedicate myself and my platform to aid in making a difference in this unfortunate not acceptable truth.

Jason Lester from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii sets a World Record by becoming the first person to run The Great Wall of China

Los Angeles, CA October 31, 2014 – Jason Lester from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii sets a World Record by becoming the first person to run The Great Wall of China (Jiayuguan first dun to Shanhaiguan Old Dragon Head) Solo in a single attempt.
Lester, an Adventurer, ESPN’s ESPY Winner, Author of Running on Faith and the Founder of the EP1C, Inc., brand that houses such groundbreaking endurance events such as the EPIC5 Challenge. He is the founder and chairman of The NEVER STOP Foundation, and has biked 5,000 miles in 100 days across the United States as the face of the Nike Better World brand and campaign. Lester, who recently ran 3,550 miles in 72 days across the USA to raise funds and awareness for Hurricane Sandy has a passion for using his athletic gifts to inspire others to Never Stop. 
Asked why The Great Wall. “The Great Wall of China is the most monumental structure build by mankind.  My desire and ambition was and still is to honor and pay respect to China, it’s culture and those whom built the wall over 2000 years ago. My wish and hope is that this run has inspired many around the world and that they to would have an interest and appreciation for The Great Wall. This run was a team effort and I’m grateful and humbled by all that made this dream come true. To my team that assisted in making history – you are heroes.” When asked what was the most surprising and unexpected moment of this journey, Lester responded with; ”I’ve learned in 83 Days that this world functions off love and inspiration. I ran through hundreds of villages that the local people had never seen a foreigner before. At first they ran from me scared but as I reached out to shake their hand with a smile they wanted to learn more about me and why I was on their turf. Within minutes they would start to smile and then invite me into their homes for tea and food. I touched thousands of babies and our youth along this journey as I feel our youth are our future and hope.  I spent many hours a day making sure I left a footprint so that those kids got to see that no matter what our circumstances we all have the ability to dream big and live those dreams. If you look at the over 10,000 photos we captured you will see this was not about Jason Lester.  This wasn’t about being the first or any world record – this was about using my athletic gifts as a platform to Inspire others that this amazing journey we call life can be monumental. Running isn’t my purpose it’s my platform.  I would run around the world in a blink of an eye if I knew it would allow others to Be Better for a Better World – and I’ve surrendered to doing just that. It’s my calling and I’m humbled and blessed to be called to such a role. I want to thank each and every one of my partners for believing in my mission to inspire 1.4 billion people in China. To all my friends, family and supporters – with a humbled heart and inspired spirit – thank you for answering the call to support.”

Jason Lester is currently 60 Miles from the finish of the Great Wall Run 4,200k!


It is arguably the greatest feat of civil engineering in history, and indisputably earth’s largest single cultural relic. It was begun during the Qin Dynasty (around 208 BC) and completed nearly 1,800 years later during the Ming Dynasty. The Great Wall of China spans more than 4,000 miles, and it will be a challenge of a lifetime to conquer.

The BE BETTER campaign was created by Jason Lester as a bridge between the many facets of our human ecosystem. This impassioned Great Wall adventure is the means by which individuals and organizations may achieve their own MI88ION through the perseverance and candor that this mission represents. BE BETTER is an opportunity for All to support an epic and committed journey, one that gives us the means to give back and create change within our environment and to all who live within it as a collective unit. Join Jason as he runs 4,000k along the most monumental structure build by man kind - The Great Wall of China - and use it as a source of inspiration to: BE BETTER.


Jason Lester is a revolutionary who is called to conquer this majestic piece of history, solo - with the sole purpose to connect the world through inspiration while creating change on a global level.

Lester, an Adventurer, ESPN's ESPY Winner, Author of Running on Faith and the Founder of the EP1C, Inc., brand that houses such groundbreaking endurance events such as the EPIC5 Challenge. He is the founder and chairman of The NEVER STOP Foundation, and has biked 5,000 miles in 100 days across the United States as the face of the Nike Better World brand and campaign. Lester, who recently ran 3,550 miles in 72 days across the USA to raise funds and awareness for Hurricane Sandy has a passion for using his athletic gifts to inspire others to Never Stop. He has been known to do exceptional feats such as run on a treadmill for 24hrs to raise funds for cancer patients and do three Ironman triathlons nonstop in 72 hours for Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting victims. He is the first male athlete to run from Las Vegas to the top of Mt. Whitney, 316 miles nonstop to build clean water wells in India.

We ask you to be a part of this arduous trek that will be packed with excitement of the unknown for 100 days. It will be completed as a journey in the purest form, an alpine style expedition in a self-sufficient manner, thereby carrying all of one's food, shelter, and equipment. With the assistance of a five man crew and 20+ team working behind the scenes, Lester will honor, what he feels - is the most monumental structure built by mankind.

It is an expedition meant to inspire hope, change, conservation, heritage, and glory. He invites you to join this MI88ION and become a part of the BE BETTER campaign

Your generosity will help transform the world we live in …

Support Jason On His MI88ION To Run 4,000k Along The Great Wall


To All,

I've partnered with a select number of companies that are in-sync with my beliefs and core values for the MI88ION: BE BETTER.

I strongly feel that through this collaboration of partners there is a greater impact to positively affect our world. I want to thank each one of my partners and teams, I am filled with humbleness and gratitude for your support and belief in this vision. I am very honored to have the opportunity to send a message to the world that we have joined as a platform to educate, support, and Be Better. These partners mission is to BE BETTER, and if we are better, then we are making the world better.

Each partner has contributed valuable resources, time, and energy. They have also made substantial financial contributions, as well as contributing product and services that have been crucial to getting us to the starting line on 8.8 at 8 A.M.

The Great Wall mission is an opportunity for many to look at their place in this world and make a decision to add value to it through positive actions and contributions. I am simply a vessel completely existing in my purpose and doing God's work...My hope is to inspire individuals to look within and decide if they want to make the choice to ignite their own passions and desires, as well as breakdown barriers and WALLS that we all allow others, ourselves, and society to place around us.

These WALLS prevent us from living freely...these WALLS prevent us all from loving fellow man as God intended. This MI88ION is about infinite reverberations of inspiration, honor, heritage and respect for the most monumental structure built by mankind.

Humbled and inspired,

Mission 5 Million
5 million children die a year of malnutrition. I've partnered with one of my supplement companies to help support kids that are effected by this number.
"The Mission 5 Million movement represents Mannatech's mission to link five million consumers of its glyconutrient, food-based nutritional supplements with five million children in need. For millions of children around the world, essential nutrition is simply not an available option. Malnutrition is considered to be a child’s most difficult challenge. Children become malnourished when they don’t receive the adequate nutrients their bodies need to maintain health. Each year, an estimated five million children die from malnutrition. That’s one child every six seconds. Malnutrition is a phenomenon that impacts the lives of 55 million children at any given moment."
