If you are not mindful you will inhabit someone else's dream.

A mindless boy can set his life aside and when he is a man forget where he had set it and spend an awful time searching every which way to find it, for if he doesn't search for it he will regret it, and if he doesn't find it he will hate himself for it.

Nothing on earth exists then to console him.

Sermon Quotes


Quotes from Senior Pastor's Sermon


Perhaps Jesus was using this first miracle - this early setting of turning water into wine - as a way of reminding each and every one of us that our lives are a miracle, that our very existence in this world, our very hope for the world lies in the miracles that we believe exist within us: the opportunities to get up fresh each miorning!



Fetching Water



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.



In The Light

Let your light shine.


Inner Grace - Mental Strength


Welcome to Lights On - Season 5 - Episode 4 - curated by your host Neville DeAngelou. There are features of magnificence, of quality, of our lift-n-shift beyond the hero that are every bit up to us: entirely up to you, totally up to me. As it is with every other superforce these attract phenomenal fakers - big time! This most invaluable superforce from our super set is poise. So enticing and empowering it is one might experience an urge to eat it. Alas, it is inedible.

Nevertheless, throughout this episode we are feasting on five of its super elements, all of which are remarkable characteristics of extraordinary individuals exemplifying wholeness of being in their ongoing pursuit and experience of health, wealth and happiness. Poise. Money can't buy it, yet it is for sale daily at lovely prices across our lands. Yes, poise. It is in high demand. Well! Not everywhere.


grace: simple elegance, refinement of movement, courteous goodwill, honored presence: finesse, charm, fluency, flow, naturalness, nimbleness, agility, decorum, decency, thoughtfulness, tact, etiquette, good manners, breeding.

Warning: there is no talk in poise; it is ALL in the Way We Move - our walk. It emanates from inside. As we already know, what is on the inside sooner or later outs itself. Well, not always; but there is a word for that: constipation. M-hm! And that affects the way we move. Doesn't it?

We are tenderfoots - superheroes-in-training - practicing a completely different set of C's (five in total), expanding our capacity, living in the shine. Bear with us as we slip and slide on our run up to rise and fly along this magnificent journey of life and learning.

Smartly we apporach our daily exercise of actionable discoveries continuously being shared, in particular those that uplift, inspire, promote harmony, expand opportunities, exemplify beauty, and reveal wonder, in other words, those proven to strengthen our emboldened exercise of genuine love through all of its fertile dimensions! In our real world!

The pleasure or pain is this: poise is not a thing one can build like a statue, put on display, then dust and shine as the occasion arises; it is a daily exercise, a natural flow, the evidence of elegance on the catwalk of impermanence. When we seek it we have an everpresent choice: enjoy it or endure it. One of those is exhausting. B-R-E-A-T-H-E. Be who you are. Share. Shine.

Our Super Powers

The five characteristics of poise we are embracing during this stretch and beyond are: confidence, composure, compassion, control, charisma. So there they are (as one) - poise!

confidence composure compassion control charisma

But why? For sure, poise (the superforce) does not equal posture; it includes a ready calm as in grace under fire. So why do we embrace this grace? Why, especially when life seems ever ready to pummel us to cluck like a wild chicken? Hmm? Why?

We value congruency. We want our intentions, actions and outcomes to be congruent with our identity. In the absence of this congruency, we have found, poise is a no-show. In its absence what is accessible to project a state of congruency is a total fake, a con. This does not mean one cannot still pull off that projection on a con, for whatever reason. That happens ocassionally. Perhaps you have heard this umpteen times: fake it till you make it. That works! For some. it might even work for you. But the fuel to power that fake comes from somewhere, and that is where the problem is; the price of the unreal deal. Oh boy! Our real deal is beyond the hero where real is eminently indivisible from deep desire revealed. There, poise is a superforce. We have not found an overnight-pill that works. Not yet! But pills are for sale. At lovely prices. It's called the quick fix! Or something like that. Don't misunderstand this. Many good things are SIMPLE. And READILY AVAILABLE. And work for us like a finger-snap. M-hm. We are born that way.

You think walking is easy?

Try poise!

I am slightly inclined to tell you a story of a time on film set with the phenomenal movie director Van Peebles when I plumb forgot how to walk - m-hm - but this memory is making me laugh so uncontrollably, for time's sake I'll leave it be for some other important prop. The experience remains a powerful lesson to me. So you think walking easy?

Try poise!

In garage speak, if presence were the sleek of your car, purpose would be its engine, passion would be its fuel, poise would be the way it drives; it's feel. Sweet.

Ain't that something?

Super empowering.

What's on the inside seeps out in many different ways. After all, what is the nature of human life in a body (skin tight) without pores? There is a life that is more.

All of who you are is who you are. We find that the full experience of ongoing health, wealth and happiness is embodied in wholenes-of-being. Be wholly who you are. Let yourself be. Afford yourself the joy and riches of becoming. Is your story complete?

World renowned teacher, Echkart Tolle, author or The Power of Now, I think touches the heart of this matter - poise! "When you surrender to what is and become fully present, the past ceases to have any power. The realm of Being, which had been obscured by the mind, then opens up. Suddenly a great stillness arises within you, an unfathomable sense of peace. And within that peace there is great joy. And within that joy there is love. And in the innermost core there is the sacred, the immeasurable, that which cannot be named." Echkart Tolle.

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. Let yourself to be. Center yourself. .

  • Know what you have
  • Discover what's available to you
  • Pursue your essential needs
  • Release yourself - don't wait to dance - Dance!


Intention matters.
Action speaks its truth.
Hiding is hard.
In the dark.

Your year
is cut into months.
Months into moments.
Be present
in each moment.

Hope is the ability to hear the melody of the future. Faith is the willingness and the courage to dance to it today. Grace finds us exactly where we are, but it doesn't leave us where it found us. Gratitude transforms our common days into grand moments of thanksgiving. And here we are - in another day - just the way we are - in so far as we have become! It matters. If you don't love what you do, you won't do it with much conviction or passion.

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." - Audrey Hepburn

Rise to the occasion. You are not alone. Seek out those who are doing or did or are achieving or attained what you need to do to reach where you are going. Learn something new.

Definiteness of purpose is the
starting point of all

W. Clement Stone

"I have to face life with newly found passion. I must rediscover the irresistible will to learn, to live and to love." _ Andrea Bocelli. "Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you." _ Oprah Winfrey.

“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you're not passionate enough from the start, you'll never stick it out.” _ Steve Jobs.

Kindness is a choice. Kindness is moral courage exercised. Love is kind. Always. Kindness is all around us. No one survives without it. Not everyone is kind. Even the unkind can do a kind deed - occasioonally - but the biil comes later. Fear not, good people with kind hearts are miracles in waiting. Looking through acts of kindnes we see water flowing through stones and the dead breathing again.

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 in it. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice.

Poise: "The component of your personality. The deportment of your style. We are seduced, not by passion, but by poise. Presence attracts us. Passion engages us. Poise seduces us." _ Dreamer (The Hunks I Dreamed)


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.

Yunus Emre

A Brand New Breed

One thing we know about these greats, these thundering giants of our grand arenas, it is this: these greats were focused on being the best of their breed and they became the best and as they did they spawned greater greatness far flung from their fields.

These greats were not the only persons with hearts and minds so fixed on a dream, yet only these greats were the ones who made it to the top of their heaps, not those others who were just as fixed in their guts and in their souls on their dreams. Why is it then that while these greats made it to the top their mortal mates got stuck? Why? Why did all those other mortals with bowels full of talent and heads full of dreams not able to escape the dung heap?

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.

Your Time Is Now


Reality: There is a thing called phantom pain. For example, a person may feel pain in a leg even though that person doesn't have that leg anymore. To that person this pain is real. Persons may be carrying around phantom burdens that have been long gone - removed - but they are still fetching the load. It is advisable to get a new reality. Unburden the load. Take off the bridle and blinders and look around for a moment or two. Look again. Take new stock. See.

Practice: Believe. Get good advice. Surround yourself with authentic people for whom you are an authentic benefit and who would benefit you. Decide. Take action. God is not holding you back from being the best you could be, but if you believe God is holding you back then God is holding you back. Just hang in there.

We are accompanied.

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.
