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 Source of Confidence

Claim #4: appreciating one's being - our body, our mind, our soul, our spirit - and our growth and our evolution = a beautiful life

There is a qualitative breath of appreciation not forged by routine or discipline or requirement or debt or hope (a natural breath). It evokes an effusive awe, a twinkling confidence. It induces a rebirth, new beginnings borne out from transcendence - that rising from the crush better, buoyant, beautified - a fresh breath of oxygen pumped into the soul. Our exploration goes deeper.

An Invigorating Discovery: once we penetrated reflexive romanticism then stripped away essential and non-essential layers of platitudinous papering we entered a heart-chamber. Awe! We are enthused by a deeper realization of the ineffable roles activated for our climb, our growth, our evolution by a vast number of social and spiritual progenitors of the likes of Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman, and (the list goes long).

A Most Profound Narrative: (the Christ) (the cross) (the crown) of thorns! In the most consequential story of life comes a moment when divinity and humanity unite. Smackang! Phenomenal impact. Game-changer. Who-ah!

Spinning Wheel Awareness: addresssing the frenzied habit of fretting to fix last year's problem today with rusted tools, unaware the problem has evolved, the enivironment has changed, and sharper tools are handy, in other words, ensuring one is not dutifully applying Old Testament solutions where New Testament resolutions exist or a New Testament solution where the existing Revelation Miracle is exactly what Nirvana needs. Ground-breaking.

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.

One might grant that it is natural to presume the interactions and outcomes of one's customary environment constitute the true definition of normal. Intelligent exploration expands and enhances that perspective considerably.

Here are what we found. Our universe is diverse. Our universe is evolving exponentially faster than it ever has. (Vertigo is in the offfing.) "Minds are like parachutes; they only function when open," says Thomas Dewar. Open. Explore. Discover more. Reflect. Share.

Be healthy. PREVENTION is better than CURE. Here are a few health-giving activities available FREE on RyoSports.com (fitness for your total being). Enjoy.

A Wonderful Adventure

There is a living narrative dictating every step you take, every move you make from the moment you awake. Capture it before it breathes, at the moment of your first breath. Take command of it. Breathe into it the life you have 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


No cavalry is coming; there's no need.
No cavalry is coming; there's no need.
No cavalry is coming; there's no need.

The deep need has already been dealt with at Calvary.
It bin done done there!
Done done!


"It is Finished." Let this reality reframe the new narrative we breathe, it is finished! Now is the time to rise. Good morning. Arise. Get up!

* * *

In the busy-busy business scrambling around to make a living, we feed on scraps of cliches - all fat and no food (clicky words with no wisdom), dangerously non-nutritious strips torn from out-of-context scripts. We chew these to get us through and put us to sleep. We awake consumed. Deformed. Deflated. Discombobulated. Limbs on strings. Winky-winky eyes. Squeaky parrot speak. Dribbling & drained. Crotchety.

Wake up. Arise into a new day. Breathe.

For serious play-play let us construct a - modern - parable (sort of). Are you game? I haven't thought of a name for it yet. You'll help me name it. So, what shall we call it? It's a long drink of water for renewal purposes purely. It's a cold shower. It is morning medicine. Preparation for the journey - an awakening - a forceful reckoning. Shall we? Here goes.


our Modern Made-up Parable

Mamma-woman prepares her sunny-son-son a cupboard full of belly-filling food; tells sunny-son-son she'll be gone far-far for long-long; reminds sunny-son-son God supplies all needs.

Kissy-kissy kissy-kissy. Mamma-woman gone.

Sunny-son-son is a happy-happy sunny-son-son, and new days come. Hallelujah!

Day 1: Stretchy-stretchy, sunny-son-son wakes up, eatie-eatie - belly-full!
Day 2: Stretchy-stretchy, sunny-son-son wakes up, eatie-eatie - belly-full!
Day 3: Stretchy-stretchy, sunny-son-son wakes up, eatie-eatie - belly-full!
Day 4: Stretchy-stretchy, sunny-son-son wakes up, eatie-eatie - belly-full!
Day 5: Stretchy-stretchy, sunny-son-son wakes up, eatie-eatie - belly-full!

Hmm? Sunny-son-son not blind. Sunny-son-son sees food going down.

Hmm? Day 7: Wakie-wakie, eatie-eatie, eatie-eatie - food going down.
Hmm? Day 8: Wakie-wakie, eatie-eatie, eatie-eatie - food going down.
Hmm? Day 9: Wakie-wakie, eatie-eatie, eatie-eatie - food going down.

Huh? Sunny-son-son looks up and down long road: no Mamma-woman. Hmm?
Huh? Sunny-son-son looks up and down long road: no Mamma-woman. Hmm?
Huh? Sunny-son-son looks up and down long road: no Mamma-woman. Hmm?

Food gone!
Road long!
No Mamma-woman.

Lawd, exasperated sunny-son-son shout. Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Wakie-wakie. No Mamma-woman; long-long road; heaping pile of wheat seeds at creaky door. (That's peculiar!) Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Wakie-wakie. No Mamma-woman; long-long road; strong wind blows seeds across dry field. (That's peculiar!) Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Wakie-wakie. No Mamma-woman; long-long road; rain falls, leaky roof, field green-green. (That's peculiar!) Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Wakie-wakie. No Mamma-woman; long-long road; sun shines, clacky windows, golden field full-full-o-breeze. (That's peculiar!) Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Wakie-wakie. No Mamma-woman; long-long road; birds-birds-birds singing in the field. (That's peculiar!) Lawd-lawd-lawd, me so hungry.

Strong storm comes, blows-n-blows-n-blows-n-blows-n-blows. Long-long road.

Mamma-mamma-mamma, house gone; me so hungry.
That is peculiar.

We ARE our stories.

"There were days when you doubted yourself and days when you were ready to quit, but you didn't." Awesome. What's your move today?

[ See ILICET - A Time To Begin Again ]


To solve any problem it is a good idea to UNDERSTAND that problem. It is pretty tough to understand a problem by mis-characterizing it, by pretending (whatever that pretense might be) it isn't what it is, or by ignoring those most impacted by the problem (regardless of the reason). These, however, are the very best ways to punt a problem. Solve the problem. We have a mind built for it.


Impossible Problems hiding Possible Solutions


What is shaping your life story?




Awesome. Your story is! 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


You're not alone. That doesn't ease the sting, does it? That scalding. Truth be told, if your experience isn't real, there would be no need for the likes of a Mohandas Gandhi. If your expereince is not real, there would be no need for the likes of a Martin Luther King Jr. If your experience is not real, there would be no need for the likes of Nelson Mandela. It's a scalding! We know. And if you but dare to name it - allbeit for resolution's sake - when they (Nelson, Martin, Mohandas) but dared they too faced the scolding - the shut-up kind: stop complaining, don't be lazy, work harder, you haven't earned it yet, stop expecting special treatment (huh? and that's all on the nice range of the shut-up spectrum). They were not alone either. But there is power in your reality. M-hm. You've just got to come to a realization. Jesus did. Convert your 'huh?' into 'I've got it'. You see, this dismiss is pregnant with revelation. It just told you a lot. Believe what you are learning. Accept it. Take note of it. Don't argue it. You've just been delivered fuel for your power; you just haven't learned that yet. That's coming. First things first, remind yourself not to complain. Yes, we know, you were not complaining. But remind yourself. It's a good thing. Yes, we know they told you to shout for help if you need help. It is just a misunderstanding. Yes, we know, what's-her-name & what's-his-name did the same thing, and look how easily their situations were resolved. We know. It is just a misunderstanding. You are neither him nor her. Remind yourself. And why would you want to be? Their story is not your story. Remind yourself. Remind yourself not to be lazy; yes we know it, just like you know it: how hard you work, so hard, who is there that would want to stand one half-day of your laboring! We know about such things; you're not alone, and no one has walked in your shoes, true, but remind yourself: it's a good thing. Square your shoulder. Fill up on this fuel. It's fuel; you just don't realize it yet. That's coming. Draw strength from the confidence in your competence. Resolution time is in your hand. Your laboring will come in handy. Perhaps advocacy. Perhaps policy. Perhaps autonomy. Perhaps transformation. Perhaps evolution. Yes, you've got what it takes to turn things around. Your story! Don't think revenge; no time for that type of thinking. It's distracting. It's consuming. Embrace the experience. Don't let anyone step on you, though, but embrace the experience. It is going to work to your good; you'll see. Listen, though. 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. Live out your story. Be strong. Pick up somebody while you're down - hand-holding-hand, embrace the experience. It's your story. If you're out in the rain dance. If you're not alone, embrace the wet. Embrace the life you are creating. Let your life reveal your story; it will - no matter what!

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 rahter not the fight Have heart, but don't 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.

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.

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!

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: How well do you resonate 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?" What do you resolve to do next?

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.
