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?

Who Is Sleeping Under Your Bed?




What through a smile might seem a trivial question in fact has a profound impact on one's quality of life and opportunity for fulfillment. The question is this: what makes a house a home? Is it

  • an artifact (or set of treasures)?
  • a moment (or set of memories)?
  • a sensation (or swell of feelings)?
  • a tradition (or arrangement of habits)?
  • a location (or ancestral connection)?
  • a person, a pet, protection, or price?

Our response continually influences the design and construction of our entire life experience (present, future, and hereafter). Much of our internal and external struggles spew from the vortex of an allied question: can you see your way home?

To change the nature of those struggles and the quality of their outcome one must confront that challenge soul-to-soul or languish wandering like blown dust.

G'day, dear friends. Arise.

WHAT CONSTITUTES 'HOME' for you?

How do you position your bed? What rules govern your mirrors? Where do you place your shoes? How do you pack your pantry? How does a baby enter or exit your presence? We are shrouded in myths. For many around our globe, myths are swing-bridges across uncertainty, the shadow-gods of health, wealth, happiness, and security. Mysteries keep our fingers-crossed, eyes darting, and prayer-beads clicking, while wolves howl and beauty sleeps.

Welcome to your opening episode of Myth Or Mystery - Sleeping Beauty - curated by Neville DeAngelou: an uncommon look at the sensual, sexual and spiritual dimensions of our most coveted space - home - and revealing a most remarkable discovery: a secret door beneath your bed.

 
 
 

Be strong and of good courage.

 
 
 

Enjoy actionable discoveries continuously being shared - smartly - particularly those that uplift, inspire, promote harmony, expand opportunities, exemplify beauty, and reveal wonder, in other words, those proven to strengthen our emboldened exercise of genuine love through all of its fertile dimensions, supplying those of us, who are blessed and inspired to take action, with the necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world. Namaste. Share.

Dreamers Hill

S-T-A-R-S-T-R-U-C-K
On rare occasions, while the world is asleep, I slip out onto my veranda and look at the sky to see which of my favorite constellations is awake with me. Too often to be mere chance, it is Orion, The Hunter. I'd feel a connection across milennia to stargazers retelling the myths we know so well. And I'd be jolted by the weirdest realizations. This time it was that though I am sitting beneath a gentle breeze our world is whizzing through space around our sun at 67,000 miles per hour while our solar system is whirling around the center of our galaxy at 490,000 miles per hour. Amazing. And there I was, as calm as a cucumber. Unhurried.

The Secret Door

myth - mystery - revelation
- design your best house -

Where You Live




In the toss of many words few perform sweet puppetry in all of us. God utters this word and that word, and we behold wonders. So is heard. And so is said. The mind of a champion, the soul of a hero, the spirit of a believer, the will of a survivor, are swept and swooned into the realms of greatness on the wings of just a few words. Such words are like mustard seeds.

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again

 


During this series we are exploring myths and mysteries. Our plan is to peel away practical wisdom without asserting fact or fiction. Our intention is to glean what's usable for enriching relationships and for dealing more effiectively with growth challenges.

We will share snap stories of our search and findings in the context of our chosen word of the moment, and encourage each other to select gems from that scramble, thanks to exceptional creators, influencers and producers.

You will be invited to score disclosures as myth, mystery, awesome revelation, or pure folly, to re-examine your evaluation after a period of reflection, and to assess what you were able to put together. Then voila!

Enjoy.



 

 



 

The monster in your closet is well known, but who is the stranger under your bed?

This episode's word is home : def - "a place where one flourishes; where one belongs." (Which of the world's four most powerful words by virtue of influence would 'home' be a derivative of? 10 points.)

* * *

Our first home on earth is a womb. Gratitude is in order here. Gratitude proves to be healthy for our body, mind, spirit, and company. Hands clasped to lips. Deep breath. Eyes closed. Exhale. Repeat. What are we grateful for? What of this first home - a cuddled room - is worthy of your gratitude? Make a note of it. (This is your difference-maker #1). Huge.

Construction of our second house - this magnificent body - began in the womb. Then the umbilical cord is cut. Look at you now - fully formed. Your new house. Perfectly suited and prepared pricely for you, by you! But are you at home in this house? What makes this house home, if it is? Is it suitably kept? Does it need repair? Is your house someone else's home? Someone else's property? Mortgaged? Rented? Who holds the key to this house? Make a note of it. (This is your difference-maker #2). Huge.

I was never able to escape a certain boyhood compulsory weekend ritual - and trust me, I tried! My mother's timing was out of this world. She'd grab me from nowhere. "Open up," she'd say, grabbing my jaws. She'd squeeze. In went the cod liver oil. "Swallow. Open up." In went the bitters. "Swallow. Open up." In went the epson salts. Uh! And I just hoped she wouldn't find any cuts or bruises, or out would come the iodine. She always explained the necessity for this ritual; didn't make it any easier. I understand better now. House cleaning.

 

 

When our team began fishing for myths and mysteries surrounding this second house of ours - our body - we anticipated a few giggling old fashion surprises peculiar to cultural traditions. We were not prepared for this shocker: we who are awash in the best ever available valid information are also swimming in modern myths, and spending thrillions for the privilege of believing.

Every area of our physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual upkeep is flooded with waves upon waves of more myths than mysteries. This seemed pure hyperbole to me, if not a tad bit conspiratorial. So the good doctor said, "Fair. First up, your diet. Let's go window shopping." We went.

My clip-board was useless. I tossed it. And I don't even do diets!

"What about a jet plane for Jesus? Your credit card please!"
"I'm out!"
"Quitting? You disappoint me."

Discovery: we (humans) have architected a functioning world fabricated aorund ferocious myths. But is this a bad thing? In fact, was there ever a time when our world was not anything but? Hold all conclusions, don't rush to judgment: we are onto something!

. diamonds?
. caviar?
. cash?

Let's presume each of us knows ourself quite well, whether as flesh or as spirit, material or divine, or any combination uniquely defined. We ought to by now. Ancestral migration has necessitated us creating various housing schemes far more expansive than Adam's pubic leaf and less troublesome than the belly of a friendly fish, an encased seclusion nonetheless - our third house as it were - a house for our house. A house in a house. Are we home yet? Who sleeps in your bed? And why sleep? Is beauty the right answer?

We've come full circle to where this series began, which as it turns out is also our lead to difference-maker #3. Make a note of it. It holds a key to the secret door (beneath your bed).

Myth or mystery?

Pause. If only we were not spared the truth of how Seeping Beauty was awakened - come Prince now to the rescue - oh, how sweet sleep is! Pause.

 


Were you to afford this un-troubled opportunity to architect a new house you'd consider home, what would we be looking at? What would make us drool? What words spring alive when you feel at home? Make a note of these.


 

An Awakening

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

[ ILICET - A Time To Begin Again ]

 

Whether we are steeped trying to unravel the plight of the indians, the legacies of slavery, the rise of oligarchy, the destiny of migrants, the militarism of religion, the proliferation of bigotry, the disintegration of community, the structure of family, the search for happiness, the exercise of faith, the path to fulfillment, one's probability of victory, or the profiteering of lies, what if you were to discover that in each and all of these there is an unbreakable thread leading directly to HOME - one's orientation toward home, one's concept of home, one's attitude about home, one's connection to home, one's value of home? What is your stance?

Myth? Mystery? Awesome Revelation?


 

Which of these features would be in your design?

   

Allow yourself to be INSPIRED - but YOU still HAVE TO DO the WORK.

   

Allow yourself to be INSPIRED - but YOU still HAVE TO DO the WORK.

   

 


 

Now that you have architected your finest abode, where would you locate it - the communal home for your privileged house? What is that saying to you? (A house in a house in a house.) Make a note of it.

Riding Moby Dick

 


 



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!



Who Is Sleeping In Your Bed?

 
 

Where is home? Do we live in a body? Does our body reside in some enclosure (a house)? Is our house in a community? Is our community on some continent? Is that continent on this planet? Is this planet in the cosmos? Interconnected. Who owns your home - the place where you sleep - the enclosure of the most vulnerable moments of your life, inseparable from the very act of living, the recuperative power of longevity? Where is home? Who owns it? There lies your answer. The question comes after. Myth, Mystery, or Awesome Revelation?

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.

Who Makes Your Bed? You will be sleeping in it. And not only that! Beneath it is a secret door. Some say angels come through it. Some say the devil has a key. But it is an ill-made bed that decides the company you will keep. Myth, Mystery, Awesome Revelation, or Pure Folly?

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.

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 of 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.

Fear!

 
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.

 

Task: 1) Gather your notes. 2) Review your notes. 3) Reflect. 4) Revise your notes. 5) Can you see your way home? 6) That changes everything: what is home; where is home; what thoughts spring alive when you are home?

Something to Consider: When the dust is settled you may find that your orientation to every imbeded concept of home is what gets you up or puts you sleep. Myth? Revelation? Or Mystery?

Breathe.
We are accompanied.
Balance - Focus - Rhythm


 

Dare to lead your life with joy. Check this out - Be the best you can be!

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.
