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?

When Things Fall Apart

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again." Mother Goose.

"Have a heart." My bet is you've heard that plea before. Many times? Probably said it too. Have a heart. It is a common plea around the globe. "Have a heart." But what does it mean?

Heart has a unique history, did you know? Poor Humpty Dumpty; let's not forget him (or her) in this process, or maybe it is just too late for Humpty. Let's hope not! Regardless, the focus of this episode is the heart - Your heart. My heart. A heart. (Heart) - as used in critical refrains down through ages.

Buckle up!

There are several other phrases of similar bite and piquancy: broken heart, heavy heart, change of heart, heart of gold, heart of hearts, eat your heart out, don't wear your heart on your sleeve. Hmm?

And what about that derogatory refrain used by one set of ideological minds to deride compassionate ideological mindsets - bleeding hearts - the which, if you don't want to be labeled (a weakling), ostensibly grants you permission to be a stone cold heart - you can now sacrifice your children - which some (many actuallly) did - literally - in the bible! Did you not know? Oh, dear! Well, it's about high time we perform a 360 on this morphean: the heart.

Welcome to Act Five of The Seven Cees - Compassion - curated by Neville DeAngelou, who is acutely aware of David's prayer (in the wake of David's transgressions), and is still wondering (in the light of so many global schisms) if Humpty Dumpty has any hope of ever being whole again.


"Tyranny is the deliberate removal of nuance."

Albert Maysles

Act Five: Compassion

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


"Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future." Nelson Mandela.

Heart - Love - Compassion. These three seem comfy together, don't they? How about this foursome: God - Love - Christ - Compassion? Find any congruence there? Any warmth? A oneness, say?

We often use fill-ins for compassion (perhaps reflective of our circumstance and community): empathy, brotherly love, kindness, sensitivity, care, consideration, understanding, tenderness, sympathy, tolerance.

Which word are you more drawn to today?


That's my today's word. Heart. I'll say why. Two peculiar reasons.

1. In an arena where power, raw power, absolute power, is the prize, cruelty is the point; such a community is aggregated around consumption of anguish (i.e., the raw pain of those it deems do not belong, those who must not be welcomed). In such a community, incoming cries for compassion, pleas for empathy, calls for understanding, are nothing more than sweet garnish upon their feasts. (You'd do your cause doubly wrong to persist your plea there. You are scouting for a pulse. Much too soon - wearied by your search - you will face a particular dilemma: compassion fatigue. Soulical Burnout. That is a thing, you know. M-hm. A sad thing. A very sad thing. A blah!)

2. Now when it comes to ancient narratives, even moreso ancient wisdom-stories passed on to us, we have a tendency (we - the casual, the untrained, the novice, the eager acolyte) to project into those narratives our local understandings and familiar experiences. That is only natural. We know only that which we do know. In the face of this a fair question might be: would such unwitting projections be to our general good or to eventual downfall?

Heart, for example. Let's take a closer look at it.

Translation debates aside, heart occurs in the King James version of the Old Testament 725 times and in the King James version of the New Testament 105 times. Interestingly enough, in aggregate that occurance is more than two and half times more prevalent than the word love, more than two and a half times more prevalent than the word pray, more than three and a half times more prevalent that the word wisdom, and almost twice more prevalent than the word sin. Hmm? Should that tell us something? I don't know. But it caught my attention, especially also because the only two words of consequence recurring more prevalently than heart in the King James Bible are God and Lord!

Okay, probably much ado about nothing!

Then I remembered something - something quite specific about heart - acquired from my various learnings!

'Heart' seems to take on a life of its own in so many cherished stories from ancient times. This beating blob is the wellknown center of all parts of human existence. It has presumed unto itself all kinds of human intellectual, emotional and physical characteristics and desires. And desperately wicked too! Hmm? It is as anthropomorphic as it is poetic. Isn't that so?

How come?

Is this intentional or happenstance?

Aha! Here is what history reveals at a closer look.

Back - way-way back - in those story-filled days, our wise old storytellers and thought leaders and interpreters of divine existence were not as familiar with the human body (biologically) as we are of it today, that it is equipped with a brain (a remarkable blob of flesh in the human head, which we are getting to know ever more about as time progresses.) They just did not know. Isn't it amazing how much humanity learns and discerns over time, so much so, knowledge possessed by even a child today our cherished ancestors were not near privy to? And yet - o-wow - they were so wise. Isn't that amazing also? Yes, it is by that error and lack of knowledge that the heart became the center of everything, as such. What to us might seem marvelous metaphors and fine poetry, to them were mere realities of the human flesh. Isn't that something?

Check it out. Knowing can be awesome.

The heart - you see - despite the greatest revelations of our time is still central to life and living, to eternity and exisiting: that is the heart of the matter.


It is at the heart of who we are: kill it and we are dead.

If your heart does not beat for you, it cannot beat for someone else.

Compassion is a living resource. It is love. Our body and our shield.



"Isn't it amazing what a boy with a slingshot, a few pebbles, a good brain, and an unconquerable will can do? This is the question a missionary posed to our Sunday School class years later. That night, however, on that box, mommy's eyes and teeth flashed under the starlight and I felt her breath as this story bounced and swirled from her like an expertly tossed yoyo, and this time, David's triumph over Goliath informed me in a very different way." What did the people see?

[ ILICET - A Time To Begin Again ]


If your heart does not beat for you; it cannot beat for someone else!

"Guard your heart; from it all life flows."


HEART = Knowledge, Understanding, Wisdom, Discernment


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




Know your game. Know what your game is. Know what your game is about. Know what your game is for. Know why you are in the game. Know who is playing the game with you. Know who is playing the game for you. Know who is playing the game against you. Know when the game begins. Know when the game is over. If you don't, a devil awaits to trick you. Know your game.

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!

Leave Tracks


Life: it is about you; it is not only about you. Hold hands - make tracks. Wherever you are going, you are not there yet. Wherever you are, that's where your heart is beating. One day the heart stops beating. Leave tracks.

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 Dreams Big Dreams: He could see the journey of necessity. It takes one into the woods and through the woods. It is a forest. He must go through the forest to get what he is bound for. He could see the nature of the forest and the dwellers of the forest. The beast is there. This is the home of the beast. It is the land of the beast. The waters of the beast are there. He could see the very nature of the beast.

The Liar, the Witch and the Thief are there. That is their dwelling. He could see the nature of the liar, the witch and the thief and why they are there and why they do what they do and some of how they do what they do - seeing bit by bit some of all that is revealed - for it is all noted there.

He could see the wolf, the dragon and the snake, and the nature of their very being, for they dwell their too. And they do what they do, because that is all they can do by the constraints of their evolution and the cravings of being.

He could see the devils and the demons - the echo-demons - for they also are there, and he could see that devils and demons are not only there and not there alone, they are agents of the beast that go in and out of the forest, beyond the boundaries of the liar, the witch and the thief.

And each time he reflects he restores then he re-calibrates. That is how he journeys, for he dreams big dreams . . . and is onward bound to fulfillment.

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 Story (P.O.V)


The Golden Room's entrance shone majestically. Dazzling bright. I crossed its diamond laced Prago to the marbled passage which leads to silver-plaited criss-crossing stairs. On arrival, my timer began its tick downwards. The game was on. I needed to get to the innermost room - The Place Of Dreams - before my timer stopped ticking, or everything would go dark. No one ever said what happens if everything goes dark. I was not aiming to find out.

2:26 AM - The Gathering (SBL Audio Dramatized)
on Audible on Apple (iTunes) on Amazon

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.


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 at Hand: 1) Know the terrain - your journey's terrain; you'll never reach your dream if you cannot travel the terrain to that destination. 2) Know who has control of the terrain, its rules and your leverage. 3) Is this the best terrain - FOR YOU - enroute to where you are bound? 4) If no one has taken the terrain you are taking to the place where they are gone, then what they did to get where they are may not work for you along the path you have chosen or are left to take to reach where they are. Be smart. Are you traveling through quicksand?

Something to note: Things fall apart. Things can be like shade balls in your pool. What should you do? Consider it. Things happen. Don't wait until it does.

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.
