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

Congratulations to our 3 Valedictorians and ALL!

How do you measure competence? Personal competence? How relevant is competence to your current pursuit?


Merriam-Webster defines competence as follows: the quality or state of having sufficient knowledge, judgment, skill, or strength (as for a particular duty or in a particular respect); legal authority, ability, or admissibility; the knowledge that enables a person to speak and understand a language; the ability to function or develop in a particular way; a sufficiency of means for the necessities and conveniences of life.

  • What is (are) your area(s) of competence?
  • What role does your expertise play in your life's journey?
  • What is your measure of their current effectiveness?
  • How do you rate your decision-making and problem-solving skills?


What do you see (visualize, hope for, expect, anticipate, want) at the end of your current journey? What is your approach to getting there? Is it working?

What impact is each aspect of your being (physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social) having on your journey's progress and the quality of your life experience?

Welcome to Act Two of The Seven Cees - Competence - curated by Neville DeAngelou, with invaluable insights from Rafael Nadal, Alicia Keys and Kevin Systrom, each of whom is a demonstrably active superior performer with record-breaking outcomes in his and her fields.

Act Two: Competence

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.

"Life will keep repeating the same old lesson until it is learned." Riding Moby Dick

Let's get a little wonky for a second. Competence begets competence by virtue of two crucial activities: essential knowledge and effective practice. Both activities are governed by two interacting (bounded) conditions outside of which things go wobbly quickly. Think spinning wheels. Visualize muscular hamsters on a joyless me-first ride. Envision hit-and-miss: the mysterious maze. Natural Laws violated. Heartburn. It is just the usual way our universe is experienced by hot-blooded humans, it seems. Yep, our universe is created to operate exactly in this way. And that's awesome!

The Two Governing Conditions (laws, sort of) mentioned are:

  • The Law of Connection: past, present and future are eternally connected.
  • The Law of Change: nothing changes unless someone changes it.

"Life will keep repeating the same old lesson until it is learned." Riding Moby Dick

Where does one get essential knowledge? How does one practice effectively?

Ah! I'm glad you asked. I wanted to know too. Beloved experts are at the ready with a good word for you and me. I am excited.



"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 strarlight 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 ]





How essential is CHARACTER to COMPETENCE?


What are you focused on accomplishing?




There are intrinsic gifts and extrinsic gifts. Intrinsic gifts are intrinsic to you. You arrived with those gifts or were presented them upon your arrival. They are instrinsic to your being. They have a certain unique set of characteristics. Whether they are latent or developed they are with you each and every season. You and that gift (or those gifts) are one. Whether you consider this God-given, genetic or progeny, you are so gifted. You and that gift (or those gifts) are inseparable. That gift (or those gifts) can atrophy, but as long as you are alive the gift lives with you. You are so gifted. Then there are extrinsic gifts.

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!

Tempus Fugit


Ours is a journey. Enjoy the process of finding out who you want to be and what you want to do. Ultimately, you can only become the best you can be. What is the best you can be and how would you know? An aggregate of superior experiences across life's spectrum re-inforce this realization: the better we are on the inside the better we are on the outside. There are a number of postures and actions various individuals engage to access the best of who they are on the inside. Those include but are not exclusive to the following: prayer, meditation, reflection, gratitude, praise, yoga, intimacy, relaxation, massage, fasting, rest, confession, repentance, forgiveness, surrender, de-toxification, recreation. What do you do to access and bolster the best of who you are on the inside? How effective is it?

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.

Gratitude & Praise (Congratulations): Right on time and on topic it seems. These last two weeks my face can hardly decide whether to keep my eyes wet or my smile wide. Congratulations graduates. On to the next level. Same things apply as did last season: 1) CREATE YOUR OPPORTUNITY, 2) MAKE USE OF YOUR POTENTIAL, 3) DO WHAT IT TAKES, 4) TAKE SOME TIME TO ENJOY YOUR PROGRESS, 5) YOU ARE AWESOME. 6) Life is WHAT YOU MAKE IT. 7) Let's do it again. 8) Remember: this is YOUR life; ONLY YOU can live it. We are right there with you. You inspire us.

[ See Riding Moby Dick ]



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 Hunks I Dreamed by Neville DeAngelou


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 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) Learn how to learn. Learn how to keep learning. We don't all learn the same way. 2) Seek wise trust-worthy counsel; there's enough junk as well as promulgated disinformation and regurgitated bad information to shift you off-track and send you in a tail spin, and not all of it is easy to spot; much of which prey on biases, weaknesses and longings. 3) Apply what you learn. 4) Ask yourself the tough questions: is it working out for YOU? And is it really God's job / promise / responsibility to teach us, say, calculus or photography? Well, if it is, then you know where to go and get your learning. Just remember: you are already magnificently designed! Huge potentiality. Besides, we are learning too. Be awesome.

Something to consider: Divide your project into sensible managable portions. Do the simple thing first then move on to the next. Don't be distracted by senseless debates. Avoid energy suckers, even if they are well-intended. Maintain focus. Schedule rests. Don't delay. Press ever forward to the prize. Enjoy the process.

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.

MASTERY is within our GRASP
