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

Circles of Love

Claim #2: engaging with our community (our hood) in ways that are positive and fruitful and inspiring = a beautiful life

This is a fascinating exploration. Diving into the dynamics of present world communities awoke the ghost of Irving's Rip Van Winkle (he slept through the revolution) - a specter exposed by the brilliance of Martin Luther King Jr.

We discovered this: forgotten history manifests its burdens manifold upon the backs of innocence wherever memory is disconnected from its truth or remains asleep (eyes wide open).

Beyond zomby-land, however, we found flourishing waves of engaged organic commuinities where old things are passed away, many things are new, and there is an effervescence. Passion is its fuel. Love and joy remain central to truth. New creations stir curiosiity. Curiosity inspires creativity. And a new vocabulary is emerging. We recommend further exploratory engagement.

Community vs cult-mentality: when exploring this, a) take note of varying perspectives of positive, fruitful, and inspiring; b) weigh autonomy against conformity and democratization against protectionism; c) measure the prevalence and ease of penetration of fake vs fertile in each. Note where you find lots of no-exit echo-chambers (slow-breeding calamities). Note where you find incubators popping with exciting new possibilities.

Highlighted Outcomes: practical merits of collaboration and cooperation; stifling demerits of egotism. Our conclusion: due to wide variabilities across this spectrum which is rapidly evolving, replace '=' with '=>' or '~' in this claim.

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

Dreamers Hill

Humans seek comfort and prize longevity. One requires familial trust, the other demands diversity. Inbreeding and sameness are anathema to both. Humans need one another.

The more we explore the more WE discover OUR need of the other. Think of this. What do you need done that you'd rather never do? Aha! Give gratitude for the willing others who do those for you! Consider this: someone is grateful you are doing what you do. No?

Keep healthy. PREVENTION is better than CURE. Here are a few health-giving activities available FREE on RyoSports.com (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social). Enjoy.

We Are Our Stories

surviving - striving - thriving
- how are you experiencing life -


Who is the architect of your story, designing each and every plot twist – that story you and I are destined to tell? Who is the architect of that story, when I am a letter free to roam the pages upon which it is being penned, that story to which your signature – and yours alone – appends? Who writes each word there and then?

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again


Awake! Arise, Precious One.

Awake, hacked brain programmed helpless (a mindless algorithm: manipulative monotony).
Awake, hacked mind rendered hopeless (a heartless algorithm: addictive agony).
Awake, hacked heart pumping bitterness (a soulless algorithm: captive tyrany).
Awake, confined soul!

Hacked? Trapped betwixt artifacted bookends? No out? Strapped beneath its cryptic doom? Eyes blistered shut (sand-blasted for a sheen) beholden to a most remarkable scene, that visage (a thousand perfected deaths): unawakableness? Awake! It is a sweet puppetry triggered in abstentia by the trickster keeping you asleep. Awake! Awake! Arise!

Arise Precious One. Arise!

Now pray tell! Who is the architect of your story, designing each and every plot twist – that story you and I are destined to tell? Who is the architect of that story, when I am a letter free to roam the pages upon which it is being penned, that story to which your signature – and yours alone – appends? Who writes each word there and then?

Are you in the field of your dreams - your calling - your hope?

What are you doing in that garden?


Impossible Problems hiding Possible Solutions


How are you shaping your story?




Our time is enriched with bussed loads of storytellers – great conjurers, great spinners of particles of truth, particles brushed loose from the nothingness of our universe, particles flaked free from the constant bombardments of untethered imagining, karmic particles fleshed into being by the sutras of our joyous entanglements, great whisperers, great utterers of our secret spells – storytellers bussed into our time from timelessness, great storytellers whose mouths are full of life’s barley and hops and yeast gargled up from the bowels of calamity, cured, and spewed through the sparse of monstrous teeth. We tap them. My cup runneth over with their finest brews. “Drink up,” they say, “and behold the sparkles – a shining speck of the universe revealed to no one else. Drink up. Show us what you feel.”

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


What is your community? "You want to build friends around where you are going." TD Jakes. There are many kinds of communities. What community is that much better because you are a member of it and you are that much better because you are a part of it? There are many kinds of communities. Be aware of this. Breathe. If your community does not exist, build one. 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. 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 nourish YOU! Do you. Against the struggle. Do you. In rhythm with the music of the wind carrying you. Be of value. "Your unique value proposition should be so engaging that it has the person next to you lean in and say, 'tell me more.'" Karmetria Burton.

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.

A Climb To The Top: "Life was a gift; I embraced it. Living was a journey; it intrigued me. Love was a joy; I shared it. I believed. As joy is to praise; gratitude was to enjoyment - back then - because that is what she taught me. There was never a cause for excuse, and to cast blame was to show a lack of courage. She taught me to cherish my experiences. It was up to me to live my life. Living it more or living it less were my choices, or you may as well throw it all away . . . I climbed it rough. I climbed it tough. I climbed to the top. And climbed it well." _ Peter (ILICET - A Time To Begin Again)



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.

The Day Seven Boys Became Men

Some experiences are so incredible, so awesome, words are too inadequate. The best one might do is say, "You just had to be there." You can be!

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: What is your world? Who is in it? What is happening there? How accomodating is it? What are its hallmarks? How does it deal with challenges? Is anything created there? Does anything grow there? What is your role there? How do you contribute? Is it easy for you to breathe there? Is anything new? Is life beautiful there (with you)? Is it a circle of love? Does it inspire you?

Something to consider: Hi neighbor! How are you? 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.

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.
