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

A Firm Foundation

Claim #3: experiencing internal peace = a beautiful life

Our living examplars manifest an inner peace that proves to be foundational to experiencing the beautiful life and an essential element of sustainable health and joyous well-being. Internal peace has physical, mental, and spiritual components, each of which we are exploring.

Vital testaments: inner peace is an inexhaustible source of moral strength and fortitude. Inner peace is not an absence of struggle, it is a stabalizing force against inevitable bombardments and struggle. It is a reservoir through which extraordinary strength, confidence and drive manifested in our examplars of inner peace is drawn. Inner peace is NOT a passive state. Inner peace is NOT genetic. One CANNOT fake internal peace. One CANNOT 'NOT KNOW' if one possesses inner peace; it is readily knowable; it requires activation. It is an active FOUNDATIONAL SOURCE. It is expressly personal. It manifests its enduring qualities continually. One can develop strength, bravado and drive WITHOUT having inner peace. Inner peace is awesome. It is NOT a bargaining tool.

Deep disclosures: a) animosity, social aggression, hatred, and the like, have their bases in a void (absence of inner peace), and are often disguised as any number of fronts - this lack is always personal and readliy testable; b) faking inner peace will (over time) eat the faker inside out and is not worth the expense; c) internal peace is constituted of vulnerable as well as industructible elements; d) inner peace faces its greatest and most enduring threat from those with the closest proximity to what one values; e) inner peace is NOT making peace.

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

We Are Our Stories

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


Great storytellers! So many! But who is the teller of your story - the story of that necessary letter? Is it a story so poorly written it's best not messed with, rather tossed and started anew? Then do that!

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again


Joy? Youthful naivete? Love? Experimentation? Stupidity?

For sure none of us - boy-men - could say we weren't warned! We were. Time and again! Those warnings fell on us like water upon a duck's back. So why these wide smiles? Or are these teardrops?

Let's check this out.

Two friends and I (buddies we were - really) - John-n-Will - pooled earnings, got a house we did not need, tossed the keys - swoosh - unretrievably gone - then opened our doors.

Very quickly word got around. A welcome mat. No question asked. Leave your shoes by the door. Make yourself at home. Rest as long as you need. If you need an ear or two or three. We're ready. No question asked! On your rebound, may blessed winds press you ever forward. You are always welcome here. Cheers.

And so it was: a respite for many over time, a non-stop flow. Fetched in stories. Fetched about warmth. Fetched out glow. A pillow for heavy heads - home away from home for any. This was not our home; we had homes. This was our open arms, our welcome; John's pride and joy - particularly - for he took care of most of the house's needs while Will and while I - well, that's another adventure story.

It really was just that simple.

Oh, the bliss of being unburdened! (I note upon reflection.) Wait-a-minute! Oh, darn! Why didn't WE think of creating AirBNB? Uh! Oh, well! Better luck next time. Do I hear someone saying better smarts?

Oh dear!


A myriad assortment of folks oten asked us back then how we came to be doing this, or why we were doing this, or what we got out of doing this, and we'd tell them, vairously, the story of how the three of us met which was then no more than a year prior (John and Will longer), or the story of where we came from, or about our adventures, and the like! No big deal. No agenda. No agenda. No agenda. Nope! No agenda. Why no agenda? Just no agenda! Oh, darn, we really could have been the founders of AirBNB! Oh, dear! No agenda. No agenda. No agenda. Of course, a series of events led to this awesome decision, but never mind those!

Yes, we heard the whispers: they are naive! Water off of ducks back.

Okay! We were naive! (And super grateful.)

There is something lost (I find); there is a sheen that is blotched (I find); yes, it spoils something genuinely sweet (I find) to tell our loved stories just for telling's sake.

You see, many of us were taught growing-up - weren't you - to not talk about well-doings - smacks of self-praising - uh - (and I sort-a cherish that learning), hmm, but not everyone is raised this way. And I CAN SEE THE STARK DIFFERENCE IN OUTCOMES! Trust me. Besides, there are those - shall I say pharisees and sadducees? No? (Evil loves silence.) Nevertheless, let's leave them be! So yes, I am working on evolving that cherished learning thing, for goodness sake. Who-ah! Not nearly as easy as it sounds.

There is, however, a sound reason I am sharing this story at this particular moment. Credit John! I find it apropos to the season and emblematic of the power of inner peace. Yes, there is a light too. An inspiration. A reminder. An uncovering. (And, also, well I'm trying desperately hard not to shout the word 'HYPOCRITES!' - forgive me! So lets leave that out. Breathe! So-so-so many times I write stories urged from the bowels of my being then delete them. Let's see if this one survives the delete button. Any bets?)

You see, a certain group not needing a place to stay or a pillow on which to lay their heads kept coming and coming and coming, kept pressing and pressing as to why, why, why, why three healthy and always-so-happy young men with so much demonstrable fun for life would be so giving and giving and giving, and why in this way, and why, why, why, why, and why not us join them? (I admit to a bit of hyperbole to my phrasing.) What strikes my memory most is how John eventually responded, which, come to think of it, is the actual 'organizational why' - only, we were too giddy with adventurous joy to think of organizing our mind around any why.

Let me paraphrase John's response to this group.

I repeat - I am paraphrasing!

Here it is:

They smacked the doors in Jesus face; he kept arms open - welcoming.
They smacked the doors in Jesus face; he kept welcoming - come on in.
They smacked the doors in Jesus face; he kept inviting - none exempted!
They smacked the doors in Jesus face; he kept arms open - welcoming.
They killed him! He kept arms open - anyone - everyone - none exempted.
Now they smack doors in Jesus name! Exemptions posted: not all accepted!
We keep our doors open and arms extended - none rejected. For nothing!!

And that, just because we want to. We just want to. We just want to.

You see, John was a healthy, strong and stringy bloke. So were we. Not stringy though. John had a strong lovable flexible mind. Will also! Me? Oh, well! We can't all have the same thing, must we?

The aforementioned visitors could not fathom how it is that we (verile youths) could exist with no sense of guilt or shame, no fear of the future. We did not fathom why they found it so necessary to want to suffer, or why they were so at a loss at our settled peace, nor why they were so pressed to want to shatter it and dared to believe they could. They were always welcomed.

Rest assured: we are our stories!

A few months later my coach called. "Did John talk to you?" he asked. When I said not yet, he started laughing. What? "He will be calling you," he said unable to stop laughing. "Last night he visited the house. All the furniture is gone. The place is empty!" I was finding it hard to hold back my laughter when I asked him how John felt about that. And my coach said, "Like John always does. Now we have room for more people, he said."

I could not hold back my laughter.

We were a laughing bunch.

Less than a week later, John arrived and found all of the furniture back in the house, with additons.

No question asked!

John's response: "Now we have less space for more people!"

A few of the young men from that group, one by one, soon began hanging around with us; a joyous spirit - spreading.

We ARE our stories.

What's your story?

[ See ILICET - A Time To Begin Again ]



"Peace of mind is not the absence of conflict from life, but the ability to cope with it."

What do you do to secure your inner peace?


Impossible Problems hiding Possible Solutions


What is shaping your life story?




Your story! It is a story nurtured in your nightmares, nestled in your nature. It is a story 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.

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again



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


Breathe. It is a delight to discover the many delightful ways individuals secure, restore and supply their peace of mind, peace of heart, and healthy states of being. What do you do? 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 bouyant. Don't let life fly on by, embrace 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.

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.

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!

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 have inner peace? What are the enduring qualities of your peace? How do they manifest themselves? What elements of your internal peace are vulnerable, if any? What elements of your inner peace was ever shattered? How do you sustain your inner peace? Have you ever lost your peace? If so, how do you regain it? How do you deal with bitterness? What is your creative role in the new creation, if any?

Something to consider: Hello there! 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.
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.
