Faith without works is dead.

Neville DeAngelou


. . . .

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


This Jesus, not just born in a manger but grew to be an adult, grew to show God's love for us, so much so that this child would ultimately be the final sacrifice.

A sacrifice that death could not hold.

A sacrifice that would be risen again in glory and in new life and from the heavens would send to us the power of the Holy Spirit.

A Holy Spirit that enables us to be the Good News in the world.



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.


The power of Presence


Welcome to Lights On - Season 5 - curated by your host Neville DeAngelou. Arise. In this first episode we are integrating features of the first of five qualites cum super abilities exhibited by extraordinary individuals exemplifying wholeness of being in their ongoing pursuit and achievement of health, wealth and happiness.


fake: a thing that is not genuine, a forgery, a sham, a conterfeit: imitation, mock-up, fraud, hoax, dummy, copy, phony, knock-off, rip-off

not elegant


Warning: workers are on the beat! Infused with the superforce of foundational virtues, we embark on this segment of our journey of life and learning activating those actionable discoveries we 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! Namaste. Inhale. Exhale. Let your light shine through.

Our Super Powers

By way of meaningful progress through previous seasons, like many of us you may have established a validated trust in a triune love: inward, upward and outward. Have you embraced a productive growth mindset - expanding and enhancing it, tooling and retooling it as you go? We have. We are now employing explored values we discovered to be ideally suited to our kind, our time, and our endeavors. Like us, you may have also created a vision (individually and-or collectively) vital to your assorted call, desire, destiny, dream, drive. Yes?

Each of us is on a mission to satisfy that eternal tug for significance, fulfillment, completion, achievement, ( <insert yours here> ), and - by whatever personal measure we have adopted - is intent on making a valued difference in the chosen arena of our actions - being and becoming, pressing ever forward, making our efforts count as we go. Yes, we are human. Limitless potentiality: spirit and mind - connected.

Even if you have chosen a different means, we wish you well - health, wealth and happiness - and offer our encouragement (by way of five super abilities we are highlighting in this short series) in order that you also may, if you wish, engage your best self, tapping your enormous potential. So, go. Do what you must. See you along The Journey. Hugs?

Our first of these five super abilities is presence! (See The Hunks I Dreamed).

(that's about where I was when I got the text; I'll share its essence with you in due course, in honor of Sandeep)

Sandeep  (Sunny)

This is Sandeep. We call him Sunny. He is.
His tool: board games. He has a super power.

In 'The Hunks I Dreamed,' Dreamer escorted a vast cloud of naked hearts - youthful in their restless pursuit - along with Group Seven, five youths who earned the Golden Spot (Aye, Kevn, Connor, Jada and Emily), up to the DCS1078 laboratory, where he exposed them to a grand irrepressible experiment on presence - its super power. It transformed them forever. And extinguished some.

As you can well imagine, we shan't replicate that experiment here. Visit The Hunks I Dreamed for that unforgettable thrill. Rather, I'm choosing to highlight two aspects of this super ability, i.e., being present and embodying presence. For these demonstrations I am employing the talents of two technical creatives and will then leave the applicable details to your most capable minds. Is that okay?

Don't look so apprehensive, you'll be fine! Yes, I can see you.

Got it?

What picture is in your mind? We live and move and have our being in a universe of patterns. You are a pattern, as it were. So am I. Stay with me. Your pattern may also be a cross-function of someone else's pattern. Oops. Never mind that now. An angel, let's say, or an alien, will look down upon us and see patterns. What is the picture in your mind?

When coaching or training athletes, I coax each to find his or her natural rhythm (it influences personal patterns, and patterns all around us impact their functioning). Most give me that very look! M-hm. I have a rhythm! What's my rhythm? I can't dance. Oh, dear! Turn on the music. A few get excited at the very thought of having a natural rhythm. And I get excited too. You see?

It is a mutual marvel each time one of my devoted athletes (recreational, varsity or professional) discovers his or her rhythm. The whole world changes. Dramatically. One knows it. One feels it. One is moved by it. Game on!

M-hm know thyself! You are worth knowing.

Be present with yourself. Be still. Discover. Discover You! The natural you! (I am not being mystical or spiritual or 'whatever' here - simply, realize you, re-engage you - call it what you will. EMBRACE YOU.) Guess what will happen? Ha-ha-hah! You are ready for today. Game on! More wonder up ahead.

Our routines, our habits, influence our operating rhythms (timing, potency, efficiency, effectiveness). We are created to operate in this manner. It is smart to align our routines and our habits with the required rhythms of our endeavors, or vice-versa. [Reference your Playllist for Phenomenal Strategies or create your own.] You ought to have a strategy by now. Or do you have a puppeteer? Easy life!

Now for tactics. Don't put donkey fuel in your Mercedes or Honda. Don't expect horse manure to fuel your labtop, but one can always keep trying - miracles abound - nevertheless, be aware that insulting Divine Mercy in the wake of laziness and stupidity, we do not recommend. We've seen wonders. Stupidity plays no part in those. We are occasionally obliged, despite ignorance. There, gratitude is an appropriate response.

Sometimes well-meaning folks intending to help end up hurting by imposing what is in fact their rhythm (it works for them, maybe) on others - because that is what they know - and you know when that is genuinely not working for you no matter how angry or forceful or violent or bible-beating they are on you to do it their way. Well now you know what that is; they don't yet know what it is: mismatched rhythms. They mean well. (Or maybe not!) Let's learn from that situation too. Know your rhythm - know you. You are a marvelous creation. Act with that confidence in each moment. Remember this. One place manna falls from heaven. Another place the mighty are cultivating great fields of plenty. Don't waste your time arguing. Choose. You are a marvelous creation. Brain included.

To get into flow one needs to be in synch with one's natural rhythm. And yes, we can alter that too - shift into a new gear. Why is that important? Health! Wealth! Happiness! Being our version of Mozart! Mhm.

I love David. Yes, King David. I admire his talents and dreams and devotion. I have studied David. I still study David. I am benefited by the wisdom of his habits and routines, by his knowledge and his achievements. And oh the power of his presence! But I am not David. Me trying to be David is a slap on the face of creation. Me going through all of David's personal emails, as it were, and divining them as personal messages to me is pure madness. Or egotism! M-hm. I get emails too. M-hm. And text messages. M-hm! Don't you? And conferences whenever I want. They are for me! Sharing what results from those is my choice entirely. So, do you feel lucky today?

Our very walk has a rhythm. Our very talk too. (I trust you are seeing and feeling this at a far deeper level than a scan of its surface.) Yes, go there, if you are so inclined. Drop a pebble into the pool. You see? Ooops! Plunge in and take it out! Pools require maintenance. Someone pays the bill. Don't mess it up. Please.

Am I preaching? I hope not. I am not qualified. Ignore that shiny piece of paper. May I throw my arm around your shoulder and whisper? Thank you. I feel better now.

  • Learn patterns
  • Understand patterns
  • Create preferred patterns
  • Apply smart pattern sequences
  • Synchronize your patterns

There and then, Lucas, (see what I did there?) the better to feel you, know you, and behold your artistry. And fall in love.

You see?


We all have patterns - created, copied or adopted.

Even the devil has a pattern! The better to decieve! Kind of what makes the devil the devil. Doesn't it? It is not merely the deception, my dear fellow hood-winked friends, it is the intention! Let that settle for a while. We live in a universe of patterns.


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.

Your Sonata
Your Melodic Pattern
Each Scale Organized
Each Beat
Be Present


There is evil in our world.


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! Does it not matter?


You are not alone. Whatever you are doing - do something smart - whether it is related to your body, mind, spirit or soul - 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 (even if you need to teach yourself - facilitation is available) how to separate the 'alabaster box' from the 'snake oil can.' That isn't always easy. There is evil in our world and wolves clothed as sheep. Be strong, be smart, be resitant, be resilient, if not for yourself nor at the marvel of your presence in creation, at least in reverence to the victims of Jim Jones - rendered helpless. You are not alone.

Know the difference between operation and creation. If you are creating - by its very nature - you are doing something that is uniquely your production. Be brave. Be bold. Understand that no one may understand what you are doing, until it is completed, or prefer you never to succeed. You are an artist. You'll have a mighty force with you when you grasp and-or are infused with the connective super ability of presence (see The Hunks I Dreamed), one aspect of which - embodying presence - I am about to highlight here with a nod to and help from another creative. Stay with me. Grab a cup of tea (or whatever you favor). Enjoy. Decipher.

Volcanic - The Power of Presence
It can be evil. It can be good
Always - Super Powerful
Embody Presence

Presence facilitates a deeper sense of identity and improved living. "When we are continually lost in thoughts, we miss the immediacy and fullness of life in the here and now." _ Ekhart Tolle. Power doesn’t lie in changing the past but in empowering the present.

“To be of good quality, you have to excuse yourself from the presence of shallow and callow minded individuals.” _ Michael Bassey Johnson. Often easier said than done, and sometimes at the risk of being harmed. Be ready. Prepare.

“Walk together. Feel the heart beats. Experience the presence. This is how to be thankful.” _ Amit Ray. “Few delights can equal the mere presence of one whom we trust utterly.” _ George MacDonald

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.

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 get’s 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 get’s 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.

Presence: "Presence has long been a potent pheromone. What's changed too is our understanding of its potency. The super youth learns how to harness it and how to grow it into greatness, for he will discover that it is every bit a part of who he is and what he will become. He will learn not to shy away from it, but to embrace it. The super youth has decided never to be a clone. A cloned rafa is not Rafa." _ 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.

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 the 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?

In Honor Of Genuine Light

Sandeep Pandreveti

Sandeep Kalyan Pandraveti (Sunny / Sandy)
June 4, 1989 - December 30, 2018

"Will you be attending?" the text said, with the invitation attached. I did not respond.

I was in such shock, I suppose, I really could not decipher who had died. I stared at the name. I turned aside. Who died? I thought my mind was playing tricks on me.

When it settled, it took me a while to raise the obvious questions: when, what happened, how? But I didn't really want to know.

Sunny was no longer with us and yet there is no way sunny could be gone!

I went.

The place was packed - a diverse group of every spectrum - most of every group having never met or heard of any of the other groups, coming and going, paying their respects, for there was not space enough; even someone who had only just met him in passing flew right back after landing in Colorado and recieving the news to offer her tearful farewell.

That was Sunny. Every bit Sunny. Ever since I knew him - not that much more than a year to date.

He kept his attention - smiling and sunny - on whoever he is with, and was quite adept at shushing us off in beautiful ways from attending to him - That's Sunny.

Testimony after testimony, in equal tearfull as in joyful measure: "I had no friend; I didn't speak English well; I focused only on study and I was shut in; I was afraid of America; I didn't know my way around America; I knew no one else at SMU; I thought he was Mexican . . . and there was Sunny helping me! Fitting me in his schedule. Inviting me to his get-togethers. Checking up on me. Taking me to his board games. Teaching me. Taking me to new places. Always smiling. Always so happy. He made sure I was included."

We kind of hear such things at funerals, don't we? For politeness sake! None of this was mere funeral talk, as folks from far and near, racially and culturally diverse, stepped up to reveal the brightness of the light he lit in us.

Yes, this is Sunny.

His room mate revealed the same thing: "Super optimisitic guy. I still don't understnad why he has never tossed me out of his apartment."

All of it resonated with everyone.

Warm sunshine hopeful.

That is Sunny.

Yes, Sunny has his light in all of us. Right here even now. Smiling.

This is not grief talking; I haven't even reached there yet. If his parents could only have seen all of us. They are in India.

To quote some person, "This world is brighter because Sunny entered it. Now heaven is better because Sunny is there."

His aunt who is taking Sunny back to his parents, said, something to the effect, "I never knew this side of Sunny. I took him for granted. His father will be happy to know what a difference he made to a world so far-far away. I look forward to meeting him when he and I return in our new form back to this life."

And another person said, "His parents did something right."

I couldn't speak.

My words could never have matched the quality of man I knew for so short a time and who has left such a huge shining in me.

I see him still - house gatherings, wedding, tennis, traveling . . . smiling. Sunny! All this while me not even knowing (even though he told me) he was a member (cherished) of so many-many meet-up groups.

We have a great cloud of inspirers cheering us on. What a loss it would be if those of us still here do not fulfill our brightened potential and promise.

This entire post is dedicated in honor of Sunny.
I hope you feel him too; you will be blessed.

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.

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.
