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.

_ Neville

Savor the Flavor

Were you a flavor, which would you consider yourself to be: sweet, salty, bitter, umami, or sour? Welcome to Lights On - Taste - curated by your host Neville DeAngelou. We are exploring an enchanting array of life's flavors in search of attributes that might enhance our quality of life and wholeness-of-being in ways that foster health, wealth and happiness along this amazing journey which is suffused with gorgeous surprises.


"Some people feel the rain, others just get wet."

Bob Marley


We accumulated a barnhouse of good stuff over the seasons which we are gently sifting through during our daily exercise of actionable discoveries continuously being shared - smartly - particularly 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, supplying those of us who are blessed and inspired to take action with the necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world! We find skills for sweet and sour. We find skills for salt and bitter. Ooh-wee we find umami skills too, and its raining all over. What about you? Today is a good day.

Dreamers Hill

I don't know if it is still a thing, however, in some cultures brides are encouraged to have for their wedding something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, which symbolize respectively: continuity; optimism; happiness; purity, love and fidelity. Hmm?

We concocted our own little game here. You are welcome to play; see if it bears any worthwhile fruit progressing toward the dream; see if it brings you joy or soothe any pain.

Here it is: food aside, we examined our circumstances and activities (routines/habits/goals/relationships/etc), picked out direct matches to each of our five flavors (sour, sweet, bitter, salty, umami). Now we are whole-heartedly embracing ALL five flavors (for a chosen period) to see what this habit yields. Fun? Easy.

What's the umami in your life?

. . . Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine . . . but you . . .



Children do the darndest thing - so I've heard! 
I am still learning from them (aint that weird?)
- maybe it is their simplicity; maybe its their simple complexity
- maybe its my memory 
. . . . . . hmmmmm . . . . . . .

Do you remember being tapped then handed an extra special treat - simply to die for - eyes blown wide, nostrils flared - saliva?


I have! Oh-yes-sirreee, I so do remember angels singing.

Actually, a few different scenarios kept repeating themselves in my little topsy-turvy world - perhaps they ring a few bells over in yours - or tickle your fancy. Let's see.
- Oh, btw, what was your to-die-for treat?
- Wasn't that awesome! Mine sure was


Scenario One: a tiny little treat - it conjures Christmas joy, royal parties, fancy costumed dancing affairs. You rush off into your private quiet (mine, the back garden, betwixt freshly grown shrubs), where you nibble and taste and breathe then breathe again then nibble and taste and breathe then breathe again then nibble and taste, until that last bite which must wait - yes - wait - it must wait, for with this bite swallowed every bit is gone, so the tongue (engaged) must let this bit go only when at last - oh at last - melted - its gone! And the whole world is new. The air is fresh. God loves you.

Scenario Two: tap-tap - a tiny litle treat - thanks - you turn - and there is that bully with more reasons than you to have your treat - it's gonna be war! And the treat is crushed. And both of you are bruised. And the only reason his head is not bashed and crushed forever is the voice of your sweet mother - are you boys OK?

Scenario Three: a tiny little treat - ooh-wee-wee - your joy was too loud - here comes the neighborhood - we didn't get any, give us a piece - and you are about to lose your peace forever, because you've got something no one else has, and now you've got one of only two choices: gobble it all in one gulp or divide it up and kick the dust. The world is a mess. God is unfair!

Oh, do I remember?
Yes. Wanting nothing from no one; I'll get it myself then extend the invitation!

No? Not you?


No one told you about the bootstraps? Oh, dear!



some walk in sandals, some walk in shoes, some feel the grit beneath their feet and sand between their toes.

Awesome? Humbling? Wonder?

Isn't it amazing what so many of our kindred are doing, beaconing us to come and see what they are discovering, what they are learning, to come and see if those could help us too? Amazing! To each of us the limits of our language are the limits of our world. The stretch of our imagination is the breadth of our joy. Life can be beautiful - in its bitter and its sweet - beauties found only in the press of another's feet.


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!



Do you. Learn something new. 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! Do you. Personally, if I may repeat, I have never associated Jesus with bigotry, condemnation, judgment and hypocrisy. Frankly, I find Jesus to be awesome company. That's where I learn to Do Me. Do you.

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 Room full of Dreams: "Have you ever wondered why wherever you go the people tell each other fairy tales, beautiful fairy tales, tales full of wonder? She closed the door behind them. I will forever remember my first visit to the Bengal Room. She had invited me up for private tea. I saw her Zen Water Fountain and was taken in by its simplicity, a calming beauty. I heard you are building a modern whizz-bang-thing-a-ma-jig, she said, handing me a cup of tea. Are you having fun with it? Yes, ma'am. Is it what you were born to do? I laughed. Why are you laughing? she asked. That sounds so final, I said. I see. Well. Is it your destiny or just a dream?"_ Dreamer (The Hunks I Dreamed)



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.

2:26 AM - The Gathering (SBL Audio Dramatized)

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: Inspired? Or disillusioned? Have you ever had a meal with friends in a tent paused on a hike up a mountain? What about with family in celebration in a posh-posh restaurant - fine ambience, gorgeous views? What about a juicy burger you cooked on a grill by the pool? What about a sandwich handed you by a stranger passing by? What about a bite put in your mouth by a child?

Something to consider: How to turn unwelcomed experiences into miracles. How to turn insults into inspiration. How to turn put-downs into pick-ups. How to taste it all - bitter, sweet, sour, salt and umami - and, well, see what happens! What's your plan? You know, the thirsty man trapped crawling toward the long trek trhough a parched land is probably not presently trying to sort out how to fix the flood on the far side of life. How about that human who is just, say, the right coinage of words short of sealing a billion-dollar opportunity? What about you? What's on your mind? What is your plan? How are you encoded? Taste and see how good it is.

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.
