Is It YOUR Life?

This not That

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
With sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.

Dust If You Must by Rose Milligan


The King of The Jungle does not live in the jungle. Did you know?

Yet - out here - he is feared being in there!



Many are often intrigued, aren't we, by things that can change the game - whatever that may be! Even if that is merely more clarity, or updated learning, or a smarter and more useful perspective. Intrigued, for sure! Come the day, granted the opportunity how many less are filled with trepidation, frozen, fearful, or fired wild, preferring the certainty of discontent and obscurity to the courage and challenges of progress and discovery? A fascinating number!

Picture it.

There, the fertile frontier! Whatever that might be! Who will enter it? Ah! We remember Moses! And his people! The promised land! We might even ponder the lost years! Ah! Oh, yeah-yeah-yeah, but how about Jim Jones! And his people?

There is a story!


Picture this too!

There, over there, the fertile frontier! Betwixt, its crossing fields. Aback, a child holds tight to an adult leg - stiff but sturdy - going nowhere - busy there. Look around. There! There, a little ways elesewhere, that other child is crawling out through the blocking tremble, out-and-around, the better to see. Peeking. Intrigued. Seeking a way out pass the crossing fields. Crawling. Inching.

Banner-bearers. Heroes. Legends. Where do those come from?

Note! There in the crossing fields - imaginations wild, drama high - there, where honesty and authenticity and curiosity are fodder in those fires - roasts - there, in that field, where the forces of wishing battle the forces of contentment - and the drama is growing higher - there, where the fix is in - there: there, has a name - a well known name - easily forgotten. Can you remember the name? Who will cross over?

The reality is, none of this picture is new, really, though for many new this is their first time in the milieu. Embeded. The cast has been here before. And will come again. Yes, new folks are on the field. But the same old characters are playing their well-honed roles. Yes, new folks are in the arena too. But on the same seats with the same view. There, out there, where fairytales face truth, nothing is different, really. Really? Will old things pass away? This time! Will all things become new? This time! Will the cynics succeed? The fix is in. A glaring reality is, evil will never not be evil. Its dye is cast. It is good that is at stake - that better want of being - and the stakes are sky high. And the answer is known, for that is easy. No? Too ordinary a mind? Hmm?

What if one were to shift one's perspective, step to that other open window, see what else might be waiting to be seen? Who knows?


Is this a novel perspective?

Let's say something radically different is happening there - for this there is in actuality an inflection point - this there is through a port where conventional wisdom is shifting - this there is in one of those rare times where a gate pried - a breakthrough gate, a startling aha, a crucial awakening - reveals a windy welcome to a different adventure - not wildness in a wilderness - rather, a realm beyond where the fix is in, a realm throughout which there is (regardless) ongoing exponential growth - growth of talent, of ideas, of innovations - an acceleration - a leap! But where to? Aha! Awesome question.


Knowledge matters.

Intelligence matters.

Insight matters.

Faith matters.

Fitness matters.

Your circle matters.

New habits are required.

Here, unlearning and learning are supremely essential. This is a new place.



Of truth, we are creative beings. Impressively so. Our narratives guide us. Invisibly so. This is a beautiful abiding aspect of who we are as humans. It is a mighty force. It can inspire humanity to light-up the best of what humanity is. It is transformative. Yet, often healing is required, for the being maybe wounded, infected, ill-formed, not in balance. No?

Yes, we are creative. Good is creative. Evil is creative too. By its very nature, as readily as a snap in our faces, any narrative can be and regularly is co-opted (from inside or out) to rip genius apart, to cheat, to reframe the pulses of good into rhythms of evil, to suppress noble intentions, to toss it against rocks, to incense, to ignite, to blind, to defeat, to dash it against cracked walls, to decieve, to disable. To rip wounds wider open. To kill. Yet the good good will never die; its deliverers do.

It takes courage!

It is mature to challenge one's own beliefs!

A blind mind can never see even with wide eyes opened.



When we know better we are in an informed state to do better, for we have agency; the choice becomes ours. Choosing is a gift, a privillege of being, a pathway creator, an owned action in this dynamic world where all acts, without exception, and every condition no matter their state, have consequences known and unknown, intended and unintended, without deference or unjustified favor to its actor(s) and with total moral indifference to the state of that act's environment. This is always so in the lived-in realm. Evil needs no convincing of its nature; it already knows. It has many faces. Their good is often interred with their bones. There is another realm; it's not a mystery, it's a leap!





Epic is grand. Epic is adventurous. Epic is heroic. Epic is legendary. Epic is beautiful. We have learned that an adventurous life does not necessarily mean climbing mountains, swimming with sharks or jumping off cliffs. It does require an enabling mind and a sturdy heart. Truth sets free. This truth is not 'this is how I think it should be' nor is it 'this is how I believe it is;' this truth is the full truth. That truth sets free. Explore smartly.



There are Legends & Clouds of Witnesses cheering us ON.



Be In Love

Embrace AUTHENTIC Experiences.


"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." _ Ralph Waldo Emmerson

There is who we think we need to be and there is who we really are. Knowing who we really are positions us ideally to progress to who we purpose ourself to be. You being the best you probably implies you've come to be at home with yourself, that you have worth. You've learned to be good to yourself. You are a precious rarity.

But what if you don't see that yet?

Be yourself. Heal. Beware of snake oil. Truth is a stubborn reality.


Don't Quit







I AM because YOU ARE
YOU ARE because I AM


Welcome to SEASON EIGHT, 'An Epic Life' - Episode 5 - Epic Mind - curated by Neville DeAngelou. During this episode we look inside ourselves and discover worth and value, a wealth within, when shared, enriches whosoever we encounter. We plumb these depths. We meet legends. We pause to smell the earth, to taste the rain, to touch the wind, to see things growing, to hear the sun rising and night falling. We create. We are wisely aware that intelligence isn't knowing everything, rather, it is the ability to challenge everything we know. It is that willingness to truly consider evidence that contradicts our beliefs, and the ability to admit to the possibility that we may have been wrong, and to bask in the bright light of discovery. Isn't it a beautiful life? Fascinating.

Supreme Champions DO IT differently!

- you can too -


We are a peculiar people, you and I, intricately interwoven (internally, externally), marvelously made, unique, inventive, rich, exceptionally versatile, endowed with remarkable minds and an adventurous spirit, creative.

But some are infected. This infection of the mind (the soul) is, as it were, by a mutating virus. Potent. Debilitating. Cultivated. So the infected needs healing. And strengthened immunity. Are these possible, or would such an infection spell doom?

If there is healing, is it a one-kind-fits-all revival process or is it uniquely and precisely tailored to the need? Mioght it be a process? Or is it as blink as a responsive wish? Is it a secret?

Authentic explorations prove revealing. It is personal. So keep exploring with honorable intention, in love, receptively, and in peace. It's fascinating.

Abiding Lover




We are WIDE OPEN wholly responsible for making our world a better place.




Today's pivot QUESTION: you've been plucked, gracefully, from where you are and lifted into an amazing place you approve of, where everything weighing you down or that has troubled you or causes you to devalue yourself or delays you in anyway is promptly removed - miraculously - gone - you are completely new while remaining fully enriched (all of your valued experiences and learnings and wisdom are in tack); and in that altered state you are advised (inspirationally so) to picture your new life - a life worth living hence forward - experienced just as you'd prefer it to be recorded and left for all eternity, and you picture this life that is worth your living - hold that picture - for you are then brought gently to where you are right now, and here you are, fresh and totally new:

presuming you've come to grips with your reason for being, how are you working it out, and if you have not come to grips with your reason for being how will you figure it out?

True Happiness

Our actions reflect The Story we tell ourselves.

"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

Why not examine your life from a different angle?

As much as is affordable for matters that matter, afford yourself a 360 degree view. You may find this of great value in ways you had not imagined nor known to account for. It is highly probable you will also encounter awesome insights that are of no relevance to who you are or what you are about, and that you will make observations you are ill-equipped to comprehend. It is highly likely you will encounter delightful delusions, and disconcerting illusions, and lots of bs disguised as helpful secrets. It may very well not be incumbent upon you to contest or combat any of these, but they will inform you, and will assuredly put upon you the onus to be ever more discerning and to be ever smarter with your decisions and clearer with your intentions, for all in all these will profitably test your faith and mirror your trust, and render you that much better. As much as is affordable for matters that matter, afford yourself a 360 degree view.

Remember: it is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Regardless, you do not walk alone, and whether or not it is visible to us the sun is always shining. This sun by measure is ever willing, ever giving, fueling many desires. The courtship we (our planet earth) have with this super star affords our generations the richness of life we have been privileged. Our seasons. Our biodivierstiy. Our means of thriving. Gratitude. Gratitude. Gratitude. It is we {{on planet earth, tilted as it is}} who orbit the sun at measurable distances every 365.242 days, bathing our various parts as we roll through life-giving light. It is we (each of us that is) by communal designs and-or decree who variously occupy and-or traverse lit and unlit portions, timely or untimely, and by whatever means we resolve to do so or for whatever resaons we reside wherever we occupy. Whatever our personal or communal story, the story of earth's romance of the sun is solid. Ours is - well - shall I say, traumatic. Even if, by some illusion or delusion, earth's said romance proves counterfactual, we know this for sure: this is your life, ONLY YOU can live it. Come alive. Our world (our universe) is discoverable; we are discovering it. May we also, in the discovery and-or the unfolding of ourselves, find balance, rhythm, and focus in useful portions. May you flourish whether your ride is in sunlight, under moonlight, or beneath shelter, rain or cloud. And may the sun keep on shining until our ways are done.


Allison Felix

A sensible lifestyle.



Take Action

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! 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."

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!

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.

Be at Home with Yourself

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. Sing your way home. We live amongst viruses and bacteria: some are villains and some are monsters. Monsters breed. Villains are everywhere; you are ever in their sights. Be prepared: find your rhythm, stay in balance, keep your values and your vision in focus. Choose your friends wisely. Choose folks who are good for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Allow your beauty to reflect the light you let in. Be all of you. Enjoy the fullness of your sacred space - Home. Replenish yourself.



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

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.

"Live Your Life - Live it well. You are worth it."


Listen. Learn. Lead.


"I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.
