Neville DeAngelou


Like any good mother, her desire was to have her child grow bright and bold, and to be full of good humor and wit, and to be generous and courageous and kind.

For, being such, how could anyone not have the most beautiful story?

After all, what is the code and concept of life, of living, of humanity, if it is not to find one's calling and to have that calling be greater than one's self; if it is not to pursue that calling and complete it with joyous self-respect?

_ Neville


Imperfectly Perfect

The Golden Angle

What is your approach to a beautiful life? Is it working? Would you recommend it? Are you giving it your best shot? Describe your angle.

Supposing, God forbid, all you have or have been or have done were in this second irreversibly erased - zap! - gone! - what would be your next move?

If you are mathematically inclined and/or a connoisseur of The Renaissance, you may be familiar with the golden ratio and the Fibonacci (not his original name) sequence. You may also be intrigued by how sufficiently these inscribe replicated attributes of beauty in nature and romanticized notions of perfection. Would you say that beauty is physical, therefore, the truest qualities of a beautiful life ought to be physical and quantifiable? Purely aesthetic? Or where are you on this - today?

Does this declaration from the poet John Keats (1795-1821) resonate with you? A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing. Could having such an ongoing experience be considered being in possession of the essential components of a beautiful life?

During the first phase of this series we explored relatable aspects of our five senses then teased from those a few useful behaviors and skills applicable to our daily walk and talk and vocation. Our exploration continues through seven attributes of lives seemingly well-lived. Let's give it our best shot.

Welcome to A Beautiful Life curated by Neville DeAngelou in gratitude of the remarkable genius of human design. We are exploring facets of quality of life and wholeness-of-being in ways that foster health, wealth and happiness along our journey.

Doesn't it blow your mind? Not only how totally awesome our body, mind, etc., collaborate to give us a functional life - that is so, uh, what's the word - but also that right this very second other humans living this very life are exploring and discovering the ins-and-outs of these very 'awesomenesses' to show us the wonder that we are. Uh! You. Me. Oh, Wow!

What are you exploring, discovering, revealing . . . that is an awesome must have?

We Are Our Stories

"We are the stories we tell ourselves. We are the stories we believe. We are the stories we sing and speak. We are the stories we enjoy. We are our stories . . . "

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again


Do you consider yourself inherently good, that bad things happened, some of which broke you; now work needs to be done to repair you, to make you whole again? What is your story? 

Do you consider yourself Inherently bad - born broken - damaged goods - work needs to be done to redeem you, to make you whole, to render you worthy? What is your story?

Do you discount such notions about yourself - you are neither good nor bad inherently - your life-functioning is just what it is - you just deal with it? What is your story? 

Do you think there is just too much thinking going on, you just get up each morning and get on with it - damit? What is your story?

Do you find yourself nowhere in the vicinity of any of these fabulous constructs, perhaps you are a consciousness merely unfolding, realizing, experiencing itself, perhaps just a being being? What is your story?

- we are our stories.

- we are the stories we tell.

- we are the stories we tell ourselves.

Could it be our story - our living narrative - whatever it is - conditions how we sleep, how we rise, how we eat, how we exercise, how we labor, how we love, how we fail, how we succeed - how we put ourselves together and pull ourselves apart - how we get along with each other? Or not!

Were there any teachable moments you took advantage of this week?

Did you give it your best shot?


Impossible Problems hiding Possible Solutions


What story are you telling yourself?




We are the stories we run from, attempting to escape our own story. We are the stories we run to, seeking the meaning of our unforlding story, seeking to discover how to be better in the next chapter of the current story, seeking to learn how best to shape that part of the story that wants to be heard above the rest. When we are not running, when we are not seeking, when we are not telling our story, we are hiding - whittled and woven into the stories of others so brilliant, we blend in unnoticed - artfully blotted out.

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again



You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

Embrace Life


Say you planted the seed! You know what it is. What is it? Maybe a new plan for your life. Maybe a new skill. Maybe a brand new routine or behavior or outlook. You know what it is. You watered it. You are tending it. You are beginning to bloom. Isn't that beautiful? Maybe you are going to be a flower. Maybe you are going to be a fruit. Maybe you are going to be a seed. You know. Cheers. Breathe. Take care of you. We are no positive good to others when we are no good to oursleves, but negativity could use us, and will use-abuse us just so, and have nothing left of us but that on which to dust its feet. That's what we see. Seek out those who are doing or did or are achieving or attained what you need to do to reach where you are going, supposing here on up ahead to be the wiser-better place to be than aback of growth's tugging fields. Learn. Being you - that better you - better than you yesterday, you gain - we too! And them. So be. Let them be them. You be you! That better you! Let your soul speak to YOU! Then do you. Bloom. Now breathe.

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

The Place of Dreams: "Love is. It is remarkable in The Place of Dreams. You can let pictures of your mind unfold into a reality. Every sense is alive. Everyone there can see, can touch, can taste, can hear, can feel as you do, for as much as you can bear. With that ease, with a flourish, everyone present in The Place of Dreams were drawn into the world I shared, a universe that is as real as wind across my nose, as poignant as chopped onions. This world is beautiful. Tortured, but beautiful." _ Dreamer (The Hunks I Dreamed)



Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Come, let us all be friends for once, 
Let us make life easy on us, 
Let us be lovers and loved ones,
The earth shall be left to no one.

2:26 AM - The Gathering (SBL Audio Dramatized)

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.


2:26 AM - The Gathering

Smile. Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Listen. Learn. Be awesome. You are powerful beyond measure. You are not alone. You can do all things. I am you. You are me. We are one. Keep Sharing.

May our light shine on sprinkled seeds along The Journey.

"Live Your Life - Live it well. You are worth it."

Listen. Learn. Lead.


Reality Check: So has anyone figured out a viable frame of reference for the beautiful life? Okay! Let us presume you do not mind us taking this scholarly approach. Ooh-wee-wee! We begin with this hypothesis - that a beautiful life includes one or more or all of the following: a) enjoying the practice of love, b) experiencing internal peace, c) feeling ongoing gratitude for what's in and out of our life, d) appreciating one's being - our body, our mind, our soul, our spirit - and our growth and our evolution, e) engaging with our community (our hood) in ways that are positive and fruitful and inspiring, f) feeling our overflow and sharing it with those who find it most beneficial, g) fulfilling a purpose. Let's just say! Well, we are about to explore and examine each of those in turn (not necessarily in that order) and see what we discover through practice. We will inquire how we might upkeep each of those if it appears in any way to matter? We will search out what else might constitute a life that is beautiful - or even if such a thing exists. Are you game? Hang around; this series is not intent on convincing anyone that it exists as such. You might, however, stumble into awesome contributions from beautiful people you may come to enjoy. One more time - BREATHE.

Something to consider: Hello there! You have a right to grow. You are under no obligation to be the same you were a year, a month, or even fifteen minutes ago. Growth comes highly recommended.

We are accompanied.

The Hunks I Dreamed by Neville DeAngelou

Every new era is marked by a challenge that reveals the true nature of its character, its soul, its heart, our very being; a challenge so pervasive, so corrosive, so corrupting, it indulges our need for respite; a challenge that demands a new breed - A Breed Beyond The Hero.
