The Drums of Legodaha are LOUD and always HOLLOW

Neville DeAngelou

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?

Beyond The Hero - Awake & Aware

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


Intriguing and instructive it is, first being aware of then understanding one's natural internal response, that is, how one's body, one's mind, one's spirit, one's wholeness, responds to each particular stimuli, yes, one's internal response, not one's reaction, not as yet one's external manifestation of that authentic revelation (a manifestation that may be otherwise tailored, learned or patterned, whether good or bad); rather, one's jerk instinct. That information is revealing. Take stock of it. Be aware. Breathe. Deeply.

We find this awareness to be as revealing throughout an extended body, as it is personally, privately. This is neither good nor bad; it is informative. We take stock, for when we do, it most wisely informs actions we must take. Be aware, but awareness is far from near enough. Nothing ELSE happens UNTIL THERE IS ACTION toward ELSE. What action?

Beyond The Hero, traveling the road of significance, having experienced the hero's journey, we recognize an enormous value of this truth, this honesty, this acceptance: the revelation of seeing what we see (don't let doubts cloud that seeing). Of hearing what we hear (hear it through the echoes of all of its nuances). Of feeling what we feel. (Feel it. Don't dismiss it. Don't deny it.) Of tasting what we taste; taste it; and know of what it is detailed on our tongue, on our palatte, in the moist of our mouth. And of gaining understanding of the power of every touch. We've resolved it to be better not to underate it nor require corroboration for an acknowledgment of the experience or its authenticity, nor require of anyone else to have it, whatever the guise. There is power in each and every touch, for you also are a masterpiece shaped and designed in accordance with the journey of your calling. You have a right to all of the same. And by these we are immensely informed. Take it in.

We find it remakably helpful in this regard to be likewise in comradery with the revelation of our brother's truth and our sister's truth and our neighbor's truth and the stranger's truth, knowing full well we will be lied to, for the villain is quite able. The villain has had the same playbook from the beginning. We smell the bullshit. We learn to earn strength to not back away from our truth. This is not easy. However, nothing ELSE happens UNTIL THERE IS ACTION toward ELSE. What action? I share in this moment about elements of the work of those of us traveling the road of significance, for indeed, many are as yet embattled on the hero's journey.

Cloud of Witnesses

Welcome to episode eight of BEYOND THE HERO - informed - curated by Neville DeAngelou accompanied by a cloud of witnesses cognizant that along the journey of significance there are many wonderful solutions, easy solutions, awesome solutions, ready solutions. That's not the issue! Never was! As well, "Let's pretend" is never an effective strategy toward the resolution of abuse.


Ignorance is expensive; it bankrupts many.


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 are not closed-in, trapped in an echo-chamber, comfortable only with the views of those who think and act and believe as you do; you avail yourself to disparate views and processes and ideas and solutions and alternative ways of thinking; you are neither flippant nor a sail in the wild wind; you sift and sort and work things out without re-inventing the wheel; you assess the risk of such a tough but rewarding effort with no necessity nor compulsion nor agreement to reveal; you understand the adjacent possible; and you test as well as you might, learning along each step of the way

- how do you determine whether the strategy you've employed to achieve your vision is working per plan (timely); what have you in place for a switch if you discover it is not?

Shaping a World before the eyes of All of Heaven & Earth, recorded for ETERNITY

"We've come to live in a society based on insults, on lies and on things that just aren't true. It creates an environment where deranged people feel empowered." _ Colin Powell. Add: they know not - fully - what they do, or they wouldn't.

Trauma is a traveller. No witness (regardless of perspective) can unsee the seen. Trauma is a traveler. It is worthy of earnest notation: trauma is a traveler. These are generational moments. Trauma is a traveler. Pontification has never proved anything but impotent. Trauma is a traveler. Trauma can be ignored for a while, but never wished away. Trauma is a traveler. There is no vaccine for this. Prevention is the option, for trauma is a traveler.

Now this is for the steady-of-mind in the midst of tortuous times. With regards to implementation of any solution-set, one's orientation to a status quo, to a system, to a situation, to a problem (real or percieved), and to its ownership or its investor, etc., exert profound impacts on whether a solution or change or implementation woulld prove effective or even possible.

We've found that there are often many self-effacing, self-preserving, high-minded, and mock-up solutions tossed into the puzzle. We are wary of those and do not give up. We find that listening to all stakeholders is crucial. This does not require some special empathy, compassion, or any element of fake-superiority; it simply requires being human in the presence of humanity - knowing all are impacted, and that some take longer than others to figure this out.

Speaking generally, a change-maker, a shape-shifter, may have decided one's world is as it is, and that's that! That is not an unusual stance. Many have made or are resigned to that position. There are many sound reasons for that stance. However, that is not the posture referred in this session. One may decide ignoring the crack in the dyke and paying rabid attention to the bright sun in the sky will keep the flood at bay. Well, who knows! That's an option. The river might run dry. That's not the option recommended here.

That said and in that light, two of seven change elements are worth one's consideration and might prove helpful (review this action-topic within your group or compare Moses' leadership to Joshua's leadership in change-making situations - profoundly insightful):

1. Thorough information is infrequently readily-available during the course of interpersonal, communal, and societal activities, in which case in a world of ongoing uncertainty, how long should you wait to make a decision then take action?

(The press for thorough information can be a delaying tactic, and can be put upon a decision-maker to manipulate him or her. Consider how you'd avoid this. It may prove useful to consider at least these questions: Who are you waiting on? Why? What are you waiting for? And why did you construct or orient yourself to that dependency in this situation?) Bring to bear learnings from each and every quadrant of your hero's journey. You've got this. There are no magic tricks; just whole-hearted sensibleness.

2. Be clear about the system (the environment), how it works, who is presumed to be its owner, and why you need it or are working within it. Difficulty determining this is a huge red-flag. Who does what to whom, when, where and why in that environment? This impacts everything. People know!

(There are phenomenal teams often available right at your reach, ready and willing, who at times simply do not know how to do what they recognize need being done, who want to do it effectivetly (not used). And quickly. And may have been duped into believing a silver-bullet is available - a shazzam - and there it is. UNDERSTANDING HOW is CRUCIAL! COMMUNICATING HOW is crucial. But, be ye very aware that it is easy to think that a system or protocol or situation is not working and needs to be fixed when in fact it is working perfectly as intended to exclude you and your activity out of it. Be adeptly cognizant of this. The disinformation force is quite adept and ubiquitous, and you will be spinning your wheels.) But you got this!

When we fall down, we get back up.

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. BEYOND THE HERO, its leaders are of a brand new breed, as we shall continue to discover.




"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 ready for it? Do you have a voice? How are you using it? Who and what inform you? How ready, willing and able are you to lead your mission to completion?

What is your strategy?

This is worth repeating. Having a vision and knowing your mission along the journey of significance is essential. Understanding your skills, honing your skills, and using your skills smartly are all essential, not only to the success of your mission, also to the fullness of your expression of your intention in the execution of your strategy. However, there is nothing accountable to execute if you have no viable strategy.

How did you determine the smartest strategy for your mission? What is your strategy? Understand your strategy. Villains and monster are not without theirs. Theirs don't have to work perfectly. What is your strategy? Own this!

TALKING ABOUT RACE (although hard; it is necessary). DISCOVER HOW (CLICK HERE)



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!

Trauma is a Traveler

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.

Who Is Sleeping Under Your Own Bed?

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? Be at peace in your home. But are monsters lurking under your bed? Are villains hacking your home? Here is how you can tell: monsters feed on your pain, on your tears, on your complaints, on your trials and tribulations. Villains keep you off-balance, off-rhythm, off your focus. Don't feed monsters. 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. You got this.



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

"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.
