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?

Break Through

Be extraordinary. Be awesome. Be YOURSELF.

You'll probably agree true confidence is not cockiness. It is neither arrogance nor pretense, and for sure it is not evidence of certainty. At its core confidence is constituted of three fundamental components: hope (a dream), faith (an evidentiary belief), and heart (a passion to achieve). It is grounded entirely in one's personal reality. Let's check this out.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take this next thing that comes along.'"

Cockiness, arrogance, pretense and certainty are aggressive mimicries of confidence. They are often predatory traps cleverly disguised to lure and satisfy particular appetites. You see, confidence is attractive.

Authentic confidence is appealing, aromatic, and associative. Its intention is not an outpouring of these pheromones, as such; it is just that those are natural outflows of one's inner readiness - the foundation of confidence.

Confidence is not absence of all doubt; it is a 'surety of the outcome' - that all things here-on through will work together for the good. It's gonna be alright. Yep, confidence is sexy.

What is the source of such confidence?

Welcome to Act Four of The Seven Cees - Confidence - curated by Neville DeAngelou, mindful of life's journey through a matrix of illusions, delusions, lies and false conclusions for which many have laid bare their lives and which continue to wreck countless more, but which need never destroy our joy.

Dreamers Hill

Do you have a slew of spunky little neices, nephews, cousins galore, god-children and lovey-dovies of good friends? I do. Another of life's classrooms. Exciting. I am still learning.

It is pool time. They can't swim. I do. Take a look at two types of this spunky crop of first-timers: the squirrels and the koalas. You know them? Both want to be in the pool. With me. And their parents? I should've gotten a hint when they disappeared. The price one pays for wearing the Happy Crown. Koala will not let go of my eyes and my nose in the water - believe me hands of sheer fear are not pliable - doesn't want to be in the pool without me; doesn't want to be out of the pool if I am in the pool. Hmm? Squirrel jumps into the deep end of the pool without warning - absolutely sure I will jump in behind him - in - out - in - out - in - out. No warning! Hmmm? You should try this exercise; I'm sure it's fit for something.

BREATHE. Health-giving activities are available FREE on RyoSports.com (fitness for your total being). Enjoy. What word would you say to the person in your mirror today?

Act Four: Confidence

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


There are a slew of wellknown studies on and stories about confidence and its impact on performance and outcomes. No need for me to regurgitate such summations; one can call upon any number of heroic sets suitable to one's inclination and taste.

Nevertheless, I want to call attention to some strong evidence of a dynamic relationship observable across the board. We are referring to the extraordinary interplay, if you will, of a protagonist's circumstance, values and actions during endeavors and affairs, and especially the manner in which that amalgum under pressure produces outsized power effecting phenomenal (sometimes unanticipated) outcomes that etch their results on history.

Think of Spartacus.
Think of Tubman.
Think of Geronimo

Think Mary Kay.
Think Steve Jobs.
Think Elon Musk.

M-hm! Let's get a little wonky.

A dream. A belief. A passion. { smartly braided molecular strands cutely ensconced } => [CONFIDENCE].

Where might these impulses (these compounds) be activated (imbedded) to produce this envied elixir, this confidence?

Ah! What is its soil? What is the uterus? What is this mindset? And what if the passage of time has worn those out of favor - perhaps rendered them infertile? Hmmmm? Stay with me for a bit. Breathe.

A marvel remains: that if this soil is not ready, if it has been spoiled, if it has turned toxic, with every turn of morning we can begin to make that soil ready again? If only we know how.

What if the uterus is not ready? A marvel remains - that we can make it ready again.

What if the mind is not ready? A marvel remains - that we can make it ready again.

So, how might this be done?

What if you discovered that it turns out this miracle can be accomplished just the same as it was done (or intended to be done) when we (each of us) first began? Let's examine this.

Hmmm? Confidence - a treasured resource.



"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 ]


"It's about love and support." Oh, we ALWAYS say that, don't we? Oh well! It is.



Someone is praying for things you take for granted.


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




Peter leapt from the edge of this shore. He dove into these howling waters bound for Moby Dick . . . cutting through these waters, like a water bird . . . confident! His confidence was not misshapen. His confidence was framed by trust in his training. He had earned the skills to dive deep and deeper still. His lungs were strong. His stamina was tested. His confidence was sealed the moment he was sent. He trusted who sent him. His confidence soared knowing why he was sent. Confidence! Not bravado. Not super-ego. Not cockiness. Confidence.

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!

What Time Is It?


Where are you right now? Are you sure? What time is it? These might seem idle questions. Then again - given a mindset - given a circumstance - each might well be the most important question of a critical moment.

So, where are you right now? Are you sure? What time is it?

There is another reason these questions are being posed, given the aforementioned matrix each and all of us are occasioned to pass through. We are setting the stage to take a closer look at a few popular illusions, some of which are destroying the hopes and dreams and passions of far too many. We might well be gearing up to blast a few of those illusions to smitherenes.

So eyes wide open! Be prepared for a breakthrough. We have so much to learn, don't we? That's exciting. (I so love a good mystery).

Meanwhile, here are those two questions again. Where are you right now? Are you sure? What time 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.

Who Dreams Big Dreams: Who dreams of climbing a sheer wall of granite rock 3,000 feet up into the sky through nature's roughest elements, bearing the full weights of their bodies on the grips of their fingers and toes, bloodied and bruised, able to grab only onto the barest edges of rock as thin and sharp as razor blades, a climb to be endured for no less than 19 days, bolstering the mind each step against a death drop onto jagged rocks while the world gazes in fits and gasps?

What possesses someone to peer deep through the blackness of our universe, select from a horrendous number of alien rocks hurtling through our ether one traveling from the outer edges of our birth 55,000 miles per hour on a death route towards the sun and percieve of a plan to dispatch from earth and land on it, 510 million kilometers from earth ten years into the future?

Why would someone conceive of the idea to leave the comfort of his or her home and community to go amongst people they do not know, people expiring of deadly diseases - communicable diseases, epidemics that can kill them too - the worst of all viruses? Why do such persons leave their loved ones and put their lives at imminent risk to fetch comfort to such people, to offer healing, to inspire hope when death is a thing that always comes?

Who dreams big dreams?

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.

I will forever remember my first visit to the Bengal Room. She had invited me up for private tea. I saw her Zen Water Fountain, and was taken in by its simplicity, a calming beauty. "I heard you are building a modern whiz-bang-thing-a-ma-jig," she said, handing me a cup of tea. "Having fun with it?"

"Yes, ma'am."

"Is that what you are born to do?" She asked and I laughed. "Why are you laughing?"

"That sounds so final," I said.

"I see."

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: Whatever our level, progress is the name of our game, success having been clearly defined for each stage of progression. 1) Having learned how to learn, keep learning. 2) Learn how to discern; be discerning. 3) Learn from failures as well as successes: this boosts confidence. 4) Make ready the next step then step on it; you own both of your feet. 5) Nurture fruitful relationships continually. 6) Enhance your faculties. 7) Stay healthy - sleep well - deep sleep - rise into each new day. Be awesome. These will step up your confidence through the rough.

Something to note: For the most part, gone is the era in which being the reservoir of all knowledge was the royal measure of sustainable value. Google dethroned that baby! So what now? Consider it. What is your value? How do you invest your value? How do you deliver your value? How do you get out of sustainment mode? By being nimble? By being adaptable? By being collaborative? By being creative? Consider it. Oh (BTW), where are you and what time is it? Are you sure?

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.

The Truth Is
