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?

Where Learning is ALWAYS Fun but NEVER Child's Play

Wherever you go, whatever you do, you take yourself with you. Everything else is dressing.


Beyond The Hero, traveling the road of significance, honored graduates are cognizant of the necessity to own skills appropriate to the journey they have chosen. They learned the great vallue of this along the hero's journey, and are using these valiantly to reshape our world.

Along the hero's journey, these learned a few inescapable peculiarities about such must-have skillsets, and that such must-have skillsets may (for convenience sake) be bucketed as follows:

personal skills: skills necessary for a particular hero to scale up through to that hero's best-of-being along any trajectory (planned or punted)

professional skills: skills required to get what needs to be done whatever cricumstance may befall or enhance or sublimate a task's timing

positional skills: these skills, which may also be referred as process skills or environmental skills, are essential in order to effectively maneuver and-or purposefully alter a journey's environment and terrain

These honored graduates learned along their hero's journey that whoever is unaware of, or disregards, or sets aside, any of these essential buckets (for whatever reason) do SUFFER UNNECESSARILY, even if by blunt force of will they press through.

These honored graduates learned along their hero's journey that he or she who is unaware of, or disregards, or sets aside any of these essential buckets (for whatever reason), and especially if by blunt force of will get through, proud of such bravado, UNFORTUNATELY keeps passing along this UNNECESSARY SUFFERING to those being pushed or shoved onto that journey (until otherwise set aside or awakened).

These honored graduates learned that learning will be rewarding, sometimes enjoyable, sometimes strenuous, sometimes exhausting, ALWAYS essential, but NEVER child's play.

Those are but a few of the peculiarities of a hero's journey. Their discoveries along with others of similar prescience come in mighty handy BEYOND THE HERO, traveling the road of significance. Let us, that means yours truly as well, keep learning and practicing ever better ways of passing along beneficial discoveries. Consider my pass-alongs ALWAYS accompanied (overtly or not) with this caveat: don't discard or disregard your OWN PERSPECTIVE - do understand why you have it. Or what's the point!


Welcome to episode six of BEYOND THE HERO - empowered - curated by Neville DeAngelou, highlighting skills these learned and honed during their hero's journey, skills that keep each of these valiant ones plugged into his or her full power.


"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win." Sun Tzu


Enjoy actionable discoveries continuously 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 love's fertile dimensions, supplying those of us who are blessed and inspired to take action with necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world. Namaste. Share.

There exists amongst us a breed BEYOND THE HERO - not some sort of stereotype. Time and again, we have leaned on brilliant examples from amongst our Wonder Women to facilitate transformation and growth and achievement. This will continue to be so in this segment. Learning never stops. Beyond where growth stops, the news is not good.

In our new segment, however, we will primarily be highlighting four critical elements of the RyoMale, which we will use to explore, examine, exemplify, and work out in order to expand amongst our ranks a) more of our brand new breed BEYOND THE HERO and b) effective emergent leaders (of all stripes) apopros to the better values of our times.


We are OPEN - Our World Needs Each Of Us, that much better at our best!




Today's pivot QUESTION: you've looked beyond, as far as you can see or imagiine across our massive universe, or just say across the planet earth, and you have come to realize there is really lots yet to discover, lots yet to be revealed, lots yet to be serviced, the needs are great, and really there is a lot to be done

- what can you do not to be trapped behind a packed race of just doing what's already being done, and how can you smartly go about it?

Treasures Found in The Hero's 3rd Quadrant

Beyond The Hero, all graduates had to have taken the hero's journey and by necessity, therefore, passed through its third quadrant. By virtue, they have overcome trials and crises, and from each harnessed loads of invaluable TREASURES now being used on the journey of significance.

Shall we talk? Let's talk; just you and me. I'll share a story too - with a happy ending! OK? Breathe.

One can find the story of the third quadrant replicated in the literature and the cherished stories of every culture on earth. One finds many such stories from one culture reborn with different faces, of different vernacular, and with altered demeanor, living well in the stories of other cultures far, far away. It is remarkable. It is amazing to discover.

They serve-up treasures.

Yet, even in stories of the West, even within Christian traditions where countless such stories are repeated (at times blandly, sometimes with remarkable flair), many of these stories have grown so overly familiar for their "other" conveniences, their third quadrants are swiftly shuttled aside or flown over, excused as too traumatic, sweetened to be less bitter, softened to be less volatile, redrawn in gorgeous colors for our children to enjoy.

Shadrach, Mesheck and Abednego in the fiery furnace, for example, Daniel in The Lion's Den, Moses splitting the sea, Joseph in slavery, ah, even the battering bloodiness of the most revered day of Jesus The Christ (to just sprinkle a few); so easger a heart may be to have its spirit lit by glorious outcomes, by the drama of a miraculous escape, by the hope of an invisible hand, by the OMG awe of still alive, so eagerly satisfied at triumphant arrivals, if thereafter, one does not become fully acquainted with the journey beyond of these, one misses the incredible value of a third quadrant story - its trove of treasures - arguably the crux of the entire experience. The whole matter missed for a sweet lick!

Which blabber has been in that fiery furnace? Which blabber has been in that feeding den? Which blabber was suckered into Joseph's hell? Which blabber's mother has watched - well!! Where? When? Villains stand on the outside gazing at the site. They too have their story/

So easy it is, having missed out from the flowering heart of such impeccable glories, that's how easy it is for a mortal unaided by the thoroughness of the whole story to get stuck in the first quadrant of its own departure, or to have never dared to make the leap at all. Stuck!

So tragic there, its villain toasts to new victories, singing, "Bring out the snake oil. Offer a discount. Put this one at ease."

Even now, as life unfolds before glancing eyes, seeing refuses to see. Too traumatic! Averted eyes. Heads buried beneath shifting sands, clutching for survival. Hurried eyes. This too shall pass. Give it time. Treasures too incredible to be believed abandoned in rubble, which future finds.

But, ah, this too is true: Present is being nurtured rich, feeding all eaters of its soil. Treasured fruits. Feast. Eat, children, eat! Eat now, for it's hard to eat well and talk wise at the same time. Youth is richly blessed. There is proof: for even now, in this time of action, Beyond The Hero, skillfully empowered, collaboratively enthused, no wasted breaths. Yes. I see.

I see flowering trees.

That's the talk and the story! Well, kind of! For villains do not rest. Assuredly. And treasures are a-plenty in the third quadrant of the hero's journey.

How about your third-quarter journey? How are you progressing? Have you gone through? What treasures have you unearthed? Cherish them. They will come in handy; you'll have lots of opportunity. Smile. Oh, and remember gratitude! Experience its joy. No waiting necessary.

BEYOND THE HERO, the skills used along each journey of signifcance were honed from the hero's journey where no hero can go it alone or come through without being transformed.




"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny." _ Mohandas Gandhi


Heart Strong

Perspective matters.


"Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances." _ Sun Tzu


Have you a cause so compelling your being exists precisely for it? Is your cause SO JUST it is worthy of the time, space, and efforts required to achieve it? Does your cause keep you fired up, does it give you a reason to rise into every fresh new day grateful? How empowered are you? Be inspired. Be motivated. Be true to yourself. But that's not all, by a long stretch. This requires being skilled personally, professionally, and positionally, and being aware you are or that you are in practice becoming exactly that.

What skills?

This is the operative question. Responses exist in all manner of form and fashion. You have the power to decide! You! You! You! Punting that decision in any manner whatever is a sure sign you are not empowered.

So how do you decide on what skills? Have you already listed (LISTED!!) ALL of the skills you have acquired from the time you were a baby to now and from your journey up to now - ALL? Good job, if you have! List your skills and call them to life. Now, how do you refrain from bouncing hither, to and fro in search of some magic formula to settle the skills necessary now? Where is there joy in the process?


DISCOVER who you are this day and who you want to be! And why!

DISCOVER what you are this day and what you want to be! And why!

DISCOVER where you are this day wnd where you want to go! And why!

DISCOVER when you want to arrive, if time matters, with whom. And why!

You already have those answers. Shut the noise out. Listen to you. Answer those honestly to the best of your ability. You now have the information necessary to seek the skills and resources you need. Most likely, you will not find your answers written in the skies. If you do, you don't need these. It will probably tell you where to find the skills as well. One has the power to change one's mind, or to keep it. Accept the power you are born with. Look your answers straight in the eye, and go with it; you are being powered by your belief; you will be emboldened in your truth. Your gut, your heart, your mind; they belong to you. Believing they are not IS AN EXCUSE! Well, that's what we've got. That's what got us BEYOND THE HERO.

The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

How is your character in your current battle; is it suitable to your level best?



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!

Care Is Key

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.

Stay Fit. Be strong.

Home is a special place. Love resides there. The best journeys take you there. Hope lives there. Home leaves no question about belonging. Friends belong there. Dreams thrive there. Home is a place of forgiveness. There is no rejection there. Home is a place of rest and recuperation and rejuvination. There is laughter there. Life takes you to unexpected places; love brings you home. At home you are free to flourish. It is where you birthed your wings. Are you there yet? What sense is there to being partially empowered. Be strong in body, mind and spirit. For total empowement to be true anywhere in the world, it must also be true at home in the mirror. Let's work on our fitness too. Total fitness is an ongoing thing.



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.

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 of 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
