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

You probably heard it.

Have you lost your mind?
Make up your mind!

You probably spoke it.


What kind of experience would you want of your life?


Now that is a good question. Wouldn't you say? You most probably wouldn't know what to want, if you were posed that question the day you were born. Let's say you were asked it anyway. Let's say you just rolled your eyes at the question and went straight for milk. Let's say the question was nonetheless placed where it would remain visible to you from that day forward throughout your growing up.

Let's say at ten years old you were asked that question - seriously - and you got to lay your answer where you could see it. What kind of experience would you want of your life? Put it where you want it. Lay it down. Go for it. Create that life experience - exactly. Let's say you do!

Let's say you get to rewrite your answer to that very question - seriously - at twenty years old. Yes, put it where you want it. Go for it. It is your life. It really is.

Let's say you get to rework your answer to that same awesome question at thirty-five years old - yes, seriously - then at fifty (seriously) - then at seventy (for sure) - then at 90, then at 110, then periodically of your choice for the rest of your earthly living: what kind of experience would you want of your life? What would your answer be - exactly? What about if you answer that very question then record your response right now - for you? Seriously! What have you recorded that remains visible to you from now on and for all eternity?

It is a good question, isn't it? Flips eveything around, doesn't it? You get to put it (your preferred experience of life) exactly where you want it. Boldly. Enthusiastically. No holds barred! From this day forward it's right there before you - cheering you on!

What kind of experience would you want of your life?


Has anything ever held you back or frustrated your genuine pursuit? How did you overcome? Don't be put at war against yourself, even when pressed to have and hold and-or to know and understand your passion, your promise, your peace, your power, your progression, that mystique - YOU - during the process of you living your life.

Perhaps, though, if you have not yet overcome (or might it be for the wealth in this moment, so perfectly timed) there is something - additionally - that needs be reclaimed for wholeness - one's mind - and if done, voila, resonance?


Let's see if that is possible. But what, pray tell, would one's mind have to do with living out the experience one desires or deserves? Is the mind and the brain one and the same here? Is the heart exempt from attendance? Does it matter if the stomach is not satisfied? From whence cometh endurance and strength to prevail through vicissitudes? Where does one's spirit reside throughout such pursuits, when evil lurks look-a-like to pounce and puncture, so cold? Ooh-wee-wee-wee! Discoveries. Insights. Discoveries. Insights. Discoveries. Va-va-voom! Through the joys of romancing life treasures are multiplied, we've found. And the feeling is good.


I'm feeling exposed, but I hide no more / I can't hide / As the sun shines on all of my glory / My flaws don't look so bad at all / What was I so afraid of?

Every part of me is a vision of a portrait / Of Mona, of Mona Lisa / Every part of me is beautiful / And I finally see I'm a work of art / A masterpiece.

- Jazimine Sullivan

This very week, thrice, notably accomplished persons, each approaching me separately of necessity, each in response to my request for an update of their current pursuits, relayed their progress and concerns. As it turns out, there exists with each a similar stuckness.

Perhaps you are familiar with the situation.

Each of these three had engaged a primary pursuit (let's say gung-ho, let's also say appropriately equipped, let's also say whole-heartedly committed) anticipating for their considerable acoomplishments that through their honed process they'd earn life's va-va-voom. Yes? But Nope! No va-va-voom! Not timely, at least. These three did not give up. Well, that depends upon one's perspective of giving-up, doesn't it? Suitably equipped. Able. Native access privileged. New opportunities availed. Each of these accomplished persons, so readied, packed up and headed (let's say of smart necessity, let's say gungho, let's say expectantly) to this other best endeavor totally of their choosing, having rightly checked all appropriate boxes, profitable beneficiaries of solid experience. Now this time! Yes?

Well, not exactly!

Let's capture the prevailing sentiment. I'll use one individual's responses to my inquiry, now that I became aware of their overarching blah.

"What were you after?" I asked. "What were you looking for? What did you expect? What did you want?"

"I'm not sure," he said, "but now I know this isn't it."

Yup. No va-va-voom! Just life!

Indeed, each of us is uniquely different (product of a personal history), occupying different cirucmstances, traversing different landscapes along different trajectories. Yes?

Regardless, might it be that afforded our wealth of personal experiences (add resonant timing, having reclaimed time), it is good for us to ask: is there something - additionally - that needs be reclaimed - say, one's mind - then, va-va-voom?

If so, what is this mind that we should want to reclaim it!

Aha. We went there. Discoveries. Insights. Discoveries. Insights. Discoveries. Va-voom! Va-voom! We may be onto something awesome. Freedom!

Take a sweet breath. Exhale.

Let's frame a few pivotal questions, as these may relate to the workings of our mind and the peek-a-boo of true intention while we are in pursuit of a desired experience. For sure, anyway, this is a teeny-weeny glimpse of what we're delving through during this revealing segment (mind reclaimed) of our series.

For example, what are we experiencing by way of our tangled relationships throughout the processes of a positive pursuit:

trust - is it trust or is it manipulation?

truth - Is it truth or is it propaganda?

gut - is it gut or is it programming?

go - is it toward goal or is it toward approval?

intention - is it clear or is it clouded?

Aren't we a peculiar people; we - humans? Oh yes, we are. Intricately interwoven (internally, externally). Marvelously made. The mastery and the malevolence of our manifestation as humans is this: we (humans) are simultaneously creator, mirror and observer of our own actions and experiences. That is the power of the narrative we embody. Our story! Individually. Collectively. That includes the story you are creating this very second. Individually. Collectively. There is no guarantee, however, that our story would matter to whomever we might want it to matter. Ole! Perhaps, that is not where one's va-va-voom will ever exist. We decided to find out.

Life's va-va-voom - getting through its magic, its merriment, and its messiness, clicking heels high - may well turn out to be - once we become aware - precisely where we put it. Individually. Collectively. Yep. (Unless, of course, where and when one has no say in the matter! Or never said. Or lack the strength or wisdom to put it.) Oh, dear! Discovery! It's a new dawn. It's a new day. Let your magic come alive. It will feel good.

A middle school in Dallas organized a 'Breakfast with Dads' event, then realized not all of their students had father-figures in their lives. So the school posted a Facebook request for 50 volunteers to be father-figures for students without. 600 men showed up.

Isn't that awesome?

Warren Dunn lost his mother when he was a high school student. He raised his siblings, graduated college, and went on to become an NFL player. He used his income to build over 100 houses for single mothers.

Isn't that awesome?

There are beautiful people all around us, each making a marvelous difference toward better . . . true, that depends on where you look. Let's step outside - beyond the confines of comfort - away from bomerang noises - and let's look again. See? Intricate. Expansive. Interwoven. Whole-hearted people. Life. Smile. Life sure is fascinating, isn't it?




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




Today's pivot QUESTION: let us suppose along our journey, of necessity we go to the mental market place for essentials (purchases and exchanges), a market stocked full of sustainable stuff able to address the full spectrum of human wants and needs, and that your neighborhood market has a gamut of supplies cleverly packaged (from wholesome and healthy through blah to a charade of seductive shenanigans and slick gaslighting tricks), every isle tripping with items readily dispensible for credit; let's suppose as well you are healed (mostly), i.e., successfully de-programmed from a common human condition that conflates loudness with logic, insidious insults with incisive inspiration, coercion with character-building, bullying with motivation, nautious repetition with god-truth, and so-on, and so-on - mental abuse essentially; and let us presume you've begun to fall in love with life all over again; so sweet, you are in a romantic mood; you want to romance life, you want to romance the journey you are on; and yes, you do gratitude, and yes, you do praise, and yes, you are oozing with empathy and compassion, but today you are in the mood - a healthy romantic mood; you are feeling good;

for a healthy outpour of this 'love-of-life-and-journey', how (practically) will you exercise your joyous romance - today?

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.

Even if not, always know this is your life, ONLY YOU can live it. What's your intention? How about living your best life the best way you know how, perhaps even smartly learning as you go?




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.

A Much Wider View - Step Outside

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? We live amongst viruses and bacteria: some are villains and some are monsters. Monsters breed 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. Choose your friends wisely. Step outside. The sky is wide. Breathe fresh air. Life is so much more! Mix well to enjoy.



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.

Let us make life easy on us, 
Let us be lovers and loved ones,

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.
