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


God invites us to have that same tenacity, that same experience of that shift in attitude, that brand new attitude, that with God all things are possible, that with God all things are new, that with God our past does not define us, but with God this present moment, this shift in our attitude, this shift in who we are, this brand new experience of God living and breathing within us no matter whether we've been attending church all our lives or this is our first experience, that today we can come with the decision to have a brand new experience with God and to open ourselves up to a new possibility of what God might be doing in us and through us.


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.

Welcome to Lights On - Season 5 - Episode 2 - curated by your host Neville DeAngelou. Awake. During this episode we are integrating into our efforts the qualitative features of "purpose" - the positioning system employed by extraordinary individuals exemplifying wholeness of being in their ongoing pursuit and experience of health, wealth and happiness.


clarity: the quality of being coherent and intelligible; the quality of transparency or purity: intelligibility, coherence, precision, simplicity, transparency, comprehensibility, clearness

simply elegant


Warning: superheroes are in training along this route. Things happen! Someone is behind such happenings. Always! Boosted by the atomic energy of functional values, we embrace this segment of our journey of life and learning smartly exercising 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! The wind has made its decision. Lift your sails. I-n-h-a-l-e. E-x-h-a-l-e. Our sight is set: the keystone.

Our Super Powers

It was quite some courageous push for a while - pulling and tugging, shoving and shifting, of necessity calming, centering, washing and grooming - determined to reclaim and revive that authentic joie de vi·​vre of being and becoming (hustling it through and away from the numbing chaos of malignant conformity). And now? We know who we are. Validated.

Ain't that something?

Super empowering.

And you? What about you? What have you found? What are you about?

Our time is now. That voice! Do something! S-M-A-R-T. Its urgency has taken root. What is this something? How is it being done? With what ability and by what authority? Oh dear! How do we make our actions cohere into a unified whole? How do we strike a balance between chaos and unity? How do we make a difference that matters, moving ever forward? That's where we are along this segment of our journey.

We (each of us, as well for some, in collaboration collectively) are imbued with a second superforce. Purpose! Nah, none of that mamby-pamby yap-yap stuff. A totally different juice, this is. Kryptonite free. Validated. And openly available. Simple but not easy.

    who what where    

In 'The Hunks I Dreamed,' when the freshly empowered but shrunken cloud of naked hearts - still youthful in their restless pursuit - arrived, Dreamer at the direction of the Old General dispatched these eager sparks back through the new realm on another quest, this time into a surprise test that would reveal the second power essential of super youths - the purpose illuminator! You guessed it: they won't all make it. Ooops! But who will be left spent?

(Guaranteed, "purpose" is always tested to verify the stuff it is made of! This universe means business. Flakes float around in circular orbits, inching toward a Black Hole. It's a well known narrative.)

Dreamer escorted Group Seven, those five youths who earned the Golden Spot (Aye, Kevin, Connor, Jada and Emily), through The Arch of Life, arriving at the onset of one of the most irresistible dramas of a familar immortal. Noah! No, not at the moment of his drunken stupor - though, those are quite some moments to behold - shockingly scandalous - rather, live, in blood-curling color and by way of godly humor smack as Noah was building his inconquerable boat, which you no doubt have heard will endure an apocalyptic storm before landing atop its famed mountain.

(Readily available access to 'The Hunks I Dreamed' will fly you safely into that mesmerizing thrill. One click here to claim your ticket - free. I know, you think you know the full story, don't you, but do you? Hmm?)

No spoiler alert I assure you, me displaying one of the vital lessons Group Seven absorbed from Dreamer, after traveling roughshod for forty days through death and destruction to the dry side of The Flood.

Here goes:


Take note! While one of the most enduring postulates of Noah's Journey is his unflinching commitment to belief, to a cause, to his calling, a commitment rewarded with this kind of immortality, one of the most striking imageries of Noah's biography and of The Flood is the fresh start: old things are washed away, behold, all things are new!

Noah and his family get to begin again.

Strangely, though, there is this often missed reality. This fresh start - this beginning again - is hewn from old cuts. This new garden is planted with fetched seeds. The new world is populated with selections from the old world - not remnants. Yet this is not the same old thing. This is a fresh planting. Nourishments are new. New sprouts rise up into new air. Grooming is new. These blooms are new. In this way everything is new again. However, nothing new will emerge, despite this fresh start, if the same old purpose produces the same old plan and that same old plan is executed as was before. Nothing becomes new, if the mind remains old and the heart is not renewed. Like clockwork that old world will emerge. Time would have been lost. The new generation would have been sent backward by this folly and inherit a debt carried forward for all eternity.

This is the chief lesson of The Flood.


This timeless lesson is sorely repeated with varied iterations throughout ALL known history, and through legends, and via epic tales - a lesson codified in the Christian Universe and highlined in the very title of its fetched banner: OLD Testament - NEW Testament; OLD Covenant - NEW Covenant. Yet fierce battles continue - blindly: old vs new; nostalgia vs hope. That devil. Oh, dear! Rationalized in vain. Each destroying the other. Fodder for Book 2.


Each and every opportunity to start anew is an open window for us to re-focus and seek clarity.

Clarity and focus are two essential elements of purpose. "There is an aweful lot of yap-yap on the topic of purpose." - Dreamer (The Hunks I Dreamed). Once we get out from under that noise we discover the crucial nature of purpose, this empowering facet of examplars of wholeness of being experiencing health, wealth and happiness.

Let's see. By the way, don't you find it strangely gratifying how often necessary things seem to just slide into place right on time? Amazing. These super heroes don't take such occurences for granted nor lie in wait expecting it. Gratitude is the perfect response everytime. Do you agree? Check it out. I find that this occurrence increases dramatically where there is clarity of purpose. Strange!

Genius at work.


Everything behaves differently when we experience clarity and enhance focus. Meaningful purpose achieves both. Our supreme record books are bursting with the evidence.


You are invaluable. Your life is important. Your actions are important. What you think is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You diminish yourself whenever you pit your being against your personhood, whenever you allow vital elements of who you are to be pitted 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 masterful creation. Why cut yourself into pieces? You'll diminish yourself.

  • Know who you are
  • Know what you are about
  • Know where you are


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
Organize Each Beat
Be Present


Yes, 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?

Thomas S. Monson said, "Choose your friends with caution; plan your future with purpose, and frame your life with faith." You are not alone. Whatever you do - be smart about it - whether it is related to your body, mind, spirit or soul.

You are not alone, but seek out those who are doing or did or achieving or attained what you need to do to reach where you are going.

Which of these are in your circle?

We find having these in one's circle and being these in someone else's circle to be of immense value. But know the difference.

You'll be a mighty force connected and engaged when you have a meaningful purpose (see The Hunks I Dreamed), two vital elements of which are clarity and focus.

Definiteness of purpose is the
starting point of all

W. Clement Stone

"Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." _ John F. Kenendy. "When you are surrounded by people who share a passionate commitment around a common purpose, anything is possible." _ Howard Schultz.

“My story is a freedom song of struggle. It is about finding one's purpose, how to overcome fear and to stand up for causes bigger than one's self.” _ Correta Scott King.

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.

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.

Purpose: "Purpose is what gives life meaning. No revelation there. Purpose is what gives life its vitality. In garage speak, if presence were the sleek of your car, purpose would be its engine. No engine, no go. Of course you can push the car." _ 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

She raises millions of dollars for others, so how does she center herself?

"Wealth consists of more than dollars and cents. A whole lot more!"



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?

- The Hunks I Dreamed

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.


To thine own self be true.

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.
