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

Claim #5: feeling our overflow and sharing it with those who find it most beneficial = a beautiful life

Luxury. Comfort. Fun. Freedom. Refined. Excellent. Delightful. Exquisite. Healthy. Enduring. These come to the fore when some think of a beautiful life.

Prevailing social and personal narratives on sharing, however, are embedded with two damaging flaws. One is a power dynamic: I have and you don't. The second is an ideological virus: I have because I am deserved; you don't because you are not.

One undergirds a richman-poorman class complex: an expected subservient dependence on crumbs trickled from a generous table. The other bolsters a belief that sharing promotes laziness, devalues effort, and is a favored bait of charlatans (the fraud, the fake).

Language fraught with such imageries (unfortunate for social coherence, a fortune for commerce) gains fluency in competitive markets for power, influence and tradable currencies then swiftly infiltrates broader arenas of human endeavor. In the power arena you're pressed either to suck-it-up or to shove-on-up. In the other you get up or get crushed. It is a pendulum-swinging, blood-rushing nightmare. Dreams denied.

Fantastic Discovery: a profoundly different narrative inhabits the living discourse of fullfledged partakers of the beautiful life. It fuels abundance. It channels creativity. We are highlighting three elements of that energizing narrative: nature (a mutually shared space); nurture (a fertile interdependence); nostalgia (a fruitful interconnectedness).

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

Nature - a shared space - the place where everything is connected! Let there be liight. There is light. Let us explore nature (individual nature; created nature). Is your space lit? Explore.

Have you ever explored your inner world? Thorougly? It is the world you inhabit contiunually. Is it lit? Let there be light. Explore. What characters, edifices, landscapes light up when you invite the narrative, shared space, to accompany you through? Explore. You have autonomy there. Is it a space conditioned for a beautiful life? Explore. Can you breathe there? Explore.

Is it a fertile space or more of dead bones? PREVENTION is better than CURE. Here are a few health-giving activities available FREE on RyoSports.com (fitness for your total being). Enjoy.

Today Is A Good Day

There is a living narrative dictating every step you take, every move you make from the moment you awake. Capture it before it breathes. Capture it in the first moment of your awareness. Take full charge of it. Breathe into it the life designed for it to live through you, or for always you will be forced to live the life it decides to breathe into you.

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again


I was seventeen when a dear buddy brought me an image of a bird on a limb protruding from the side of a cliff being soaked by a monstrous storm, and said to me, "What do you see?"

I looked at it. My buddies and I frequently played tricks on each other, so I suspected a trick up his sleeve, and was drawn to the bird on the precarious branch. "What do you see?" I tossed back to him.

"No. What do you see?" He tossed back to me.

"I see a bird in a storm perched on a limb at the side of a cliff," I said, surrendering my lack of insight. "What do you see?"

"It's a picture of peace and tranquility," he said.

These many years later I have not forgotten, and frequently reflect on that image. And smile.

There are many reasons I smile.

* * *

What about you?

Do you have a reason to smile?

* * *


We ARE our stories.

This very moment is unique to you (and you alone) in a timeslot common to everyone in the world. What part is it playing in your brilliant life story? Is it a good one? What happens next? Today is a good day.

Who is shaping your brilliant story?




How is your story unfolding? What chapter are you currently experiencing? Is yours a brilliant story? If it is then it is that story nurtured in your nightmares, nestled in your nature. It is a story constructed from that which no one else can see, no one else can reveal, no one else can write, no one else can tell. And yet you'll find in it mine and yours intricately intertwined. But tell YOUR story. You cannot tell mine. Not well enough. We have great storytellers in our time.

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


Have you found a way to be fiercely independent AND fruitfully interdependent? The experience is awesome. Magnificent. It trends toward excellence. Observing this phenomenal clasp (i.e., independence <=> interdependence) unfolding in unspoiled nature is an inspiration: the word is beautiful. Divine. Yes, nothing short of divine. Joy. Fertile ground. Nurtured. Nourishing. From outside it is easy to remain oblivious of this engagement, except when the outcome unfolds on grand cinematic scales with impacts that appear disproportionate to what is considered normal. The fact is, this reality can be and is being nurtured into existence at every scale within the human family wherever conditions are so groomed. The key (we have found) is one's novel ability to nurture such a collaboration through each and every challenge. Outcome: phenomenal new creations. It is important to note that each and every new creation, regardless, come full-face to the challenge of the human condition. Living narratives are always at play. Here we differentiate fertile narratives from futile narratives. (See Flight of The Fused Monkeys.) Recommendation: explore your narrative landscape: its many characters, its overarching characteristics, its trajectory, its dramatic paths. This very second these elements are playing a huge part in every individual unfolding story, in feelings being experienced, in the nature of one's thoughts. Explore. 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. Know thyself. Be strong. Embrace your new creation.

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 Battle for Life: "My son, the bully is not strong. Were he strong he would not be a bully! Rather not stir the fight, consider what is right and pick your battles wisely. Prefer not violence neither just victory; prefer the stance. There are always better ways. Often, better ways require brain and gut and heart. Let muscle be a tool of your mind and not your mind a tool of your muscle. Remember: muscle is equally the tool of the fool. Remember too: victory is not always determined at the site where an enemy is crushed. Ask the Phoenix. Have guts, but rather not the fight. Have heart, but don't cut it away from your head." _ Norma (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.

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.


Reality Check: Do you remember the times? Do you find any resonance with these? (a) "Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." Voltaire (b) "Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others." Cicero (c) "It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful." David Steindl-Rast. "It is not what you've done; it is who you have become?" How well do you know yourself?

Something to consider: Isn't this just a gorgeous day? Enjoy it. 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.
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.
