Heart of The Matter

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?

_ Neville






Life Tips from
Along The Journey


Your Private Coach








An uncommon strength (superb in its regenerative capacity) is rooted in and nourished by joy - true joy - a firm and ample base. Durable. Steadfast. Extraordinary. The Game-Changer.

This joy feasts in high company with peace and love. True peace - that peace which befuddles understanding. This love is neither compromised by deceit nor flattered by ego. True love. An extraordinary bond. This, our unspeakable joy, is worth every pellet of its claim. Vigorous. Tenacious. Flexible. Magnetic. Secure.

No, this joy is not a reward. Yes, it keeps us strong with an uncommon strength. Hearty. Healthy. Hardy. Whole. Dynamic. It rewards authentic engagement. It is a life-changer.

Joy (the word) is one of many prized in common language, words that enjoy familiarity through frequency, but not clarity by virtue of commonality. Similarily so with love (the word) and peace (the word): out in the shallows, intentionally or flippantly, they are mere trigger-words. Feather weights! High flying misinformation too often. Misunderstood. Sometimes disinformation: bloated pronoucements, parrotted unawares, floating a sadness that can sicken the human spirit.

Not so during our present discourse. Here, let us rise to higher ground where one may find it easier to recognize this unique gift - joy - ample in its regenerative capacity - doing what it willingly does; even more so where it exposes us to the unique unfolding of its resourcefulness. Yes, joy! This joy! Fascinating, isn't it? Joy. You have it. We have it too.

Let's unwrap this gift, shall we? Let's ascertain whether its rhythms resonate beautifully with you, being you, as it does us being us, and-or if it performs services worthy of its venerated status.

What have you found?

Joy (the experience) is un-fake-able, yet counterfeits abound, for real joy is precious. Elemental. Supreme. Essential. Readily available, and yet hardly known. This revelation (in as much as it is) begs a number of questions, of course. Vital questions. Un-ignorable questions. Life-enhancing questions. Oooh-hah. There will be no shying away here from any of those entanglements during this segment of our series. We anticipate their revelations to be awesome. We trust you'll be as happily resourced engaging and unraveling these entanglements, even while we are escorting each other through the thicket, even while electing to embrace the freshness of this exploration - joy reclaimed - (deep and wide), even if we are unabashedly renewed in the process.


You are a masterpiece. Deep breaths please. Here I am. Be yourself. An exciting uncovering of this gift - joy - this dynamic regenerator - is in the offing (in many unsusal ways). Yes, joy! You have it. We have it too.

Shall we begin this unwrapping? Perhaps, layer by layer, crease by crease, fold by fold, the odd way we do such things? Oooh, sip slowly, this thing is simple, and it is huge. Breathe. Here I am.



A river flows in you. In us. An ocean rolls beneath. That's awesome. There are islands, and springs, and geysers, and rapids, and mighty waves. Perhaps, we may explore these . . . together?


A river flows. In you. In us. A mighty river. An ocean rolls beneath. Joy.

Have you ever noticed how, though, when joy - true joy - is being entertained, whilst it is nourishing wholeness in us, others invariably rush into the room, others like

tears, laughter, grief, euphoria

are they related?
are they invited?
are they welcomed, or just pushy invaders?

can they abide together?
which is the fraud?

are they dressed for the occasion?
who came through the mud tracking dirt?

Mixed Metaphors, we know. This experience. This exploration. Joy. Phenomenal. Practical. Vital to well being. Necessary to flourishing. This joy incomparable, it is our uncommon strength. A renewable resource. A regenerator. Magnetic.

This joy is, in our experience, differentiated from AND independent of happiness. It is fluid. Functional. Un-fake-able! Essential. Unflappable. Yes, joy.



This exploration will take us into and through the vital spaces of life, and of necessity into and through values and beliefs, in as much as these impact the flourishing of our lives, and through communal experiences, and through the thicket of entangled concepts that trap so many in a fog, none of it intended by us to persuade or to prove, rather to reveal. Joy - this joy - it is an uncommon strength. It is awesome. It lifts. It lightens. It makes new.

Poor Samson, though. His secret got out. Oh, Delilah. They pounced upon Samson's vulnerability like hyenas on a trapped rabit. Ewwwww. Tragedy.

My dear friend, no one can steal this joy. No one! Rest assured that even though trickery thrives wherever humans are traumatized: no one can steal this joy. Yet, how many might you estimate have been trickily convinced their joy - this joy - has been stolen from them or been lost along the way? Perhaps convinced by tricksters determined to disable them. Trauma. Or perhaps to convince the vulnerable to bargain for a shiny counterfeit. Tragic. Perhaps to mess with them. Perhaps to flex their power over them. Or perhaps just because misery needs company: shared suffering. Whatever the reason, trickery or trauma, trial or tragedy, no one can steal your joy - this joy - true joy. No one! Not this joy - an unconquerable strength - precious - fortified - essential to a beautiful life. But it can be abandoned, left untapped.

Whether or not in your neck of the woods you find these revelations resourceful to your pursuit, this is as good a moment as any to remind ourselves of two gate keepers at our command: 1) an awesome realization; 2) a revelatory question.

And not only those two.

  1. Realize this is your life, you have to live it; only you can.
  2. How is "it" working for you?

Here I am.


Embrace enriched experiences.

REFLECT. re-learn. Keep riding.


a river flows in you

Welcome to SEASON SEVEN, 're-CLAIMED,' episode seven - joy reclaimed - curated by Neville DeAngelou. In arenas where life is not a spectator sport, is life a canvas prepped for artists with the unique intelligence to learn again? That exploration has already begun. This episode samples its introductory discourse. We often imagine living in superhero worlds. Can it be that superheroes are living amongst us under sweet pseudonmys and that explorers are poised to reveal one of this super-breed's supreme 'secrets', hinting at the probability that this empowering 'secret' - the heart of the matter - is embedded in you and me? Whoo-wee! That exploration is completed. This episode is an introductory sampling of its extraordinary revelations. Grounded in that reality, it is time to ask ourselves the tough question. Today is that opportunity.

Supreme Champions DO IT differently!

- you can too -


We are a peculiar people, you and I, intricately interwoven (internally, externally), marvelously made, exquisitely architected by and large, symbiotic, ever evolving, and set on a continuous journey of becomimg. We are intelligent. Debatably. There is strong evidence on all sides. All of which makes of us (humans) from the get go a fascinating contribution to life and patterns of living.

You see, the mastery and the malevolence of our manifestation as humans, is this: we (humans) are simultaneously creator, mirror and observer of our actions and experiences. We are products of stories. Superficially, this is our weakness and our strength. But some of us flip the scripts. And some dig beneath life's surfaces. And some of these make everything new.







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




Today's pivot QUESTION: let's look at the bright side, and let's say, gleaned from speakings, your life is in order, your affairs are running smoothly, and your cup runneth over, and let's say you've assimilated and assessed from your lookings round-and-about that 'things' are shambles elsewhere; you are grateful you are you; and let's say you are beginning to recognize the great value of a) accepting people just as they are, having been taught this by the Greatest Teacher; and of b) being open to other points of view, having wisely discovered that no one has your point of view nor you theirs, since such is the created uniqueness of humans journeying through space and time, all of us being intricately connected; and now you are in a moment to face the hard question; take a deep breath; stand before your mirror; look at you - awesome - square yourself eye-to-eye (we are doing the same thing too):

what is the hard question you avoided asking 'yourself'; ask 'yourself' that very question now; now what will you do - smartly - about it; when?

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.

HIDDEN BRAIN: Cultivate Your Purpose
(Traversing Life's incline)


Remember: it is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Nevertheless, you are not alone. Even if you live on an island all by yourself, you are not alone. the very air you breathe is particled by breaths of those you have never met, never known, and those you know so well but do not see, and those you think you know, but never can trully, and they yours. And likewise the water you drink and anything you eat. The very particles of your being exist on account of you never having been alone. You are not alone. You were never alone. Whether or not you accept this point of view, be ever aware: this is your life, ONLY YOU can live it. Life is full of many wonders. You might be one too. And our unverse has revealed more of itself today than it did yesterday. Isn't life awesome? Always changing. Be kind.

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.

Unlock New Doors

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. Life is symbiotic. Unlock new doors. Create great company. Share your joy; creates awesome memories. Reach out and touch someone - beautifully. Glow.



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.

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
