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






Intimate Conversation


Your Private Coach







Y. O. U.

Regardless of one's pedigree or perspective, how cool is this, even if one were to picture it as a playful true story of self discovery?


Having rolled out mountains, oceans, planets and galaxies into a fathomless space, and having been satisfied at their marvelous unfolding, to turn and think, hmm, Earth needs, let's see, one of you, exactly as you, and - boom - there you are!


And me!

Me? Yes! Wow. Must be that author's spectacular sense of humor. Incredible supreme awesomeness too. Picture it. Boom. Here I am. Oh, that's grace, my precious. Grace.

And for YOU to deduce by the measure of your appetite that a river flows in you. As it were. And that an ocean rolls beneath. And that there are islands and springs and geysers and rapids and mighty waves. Uh, Joy. Pure joy.

YOU are its masterpiece equipped with a capacity for great imagination. Inventive. You are a fine quality of being, equipped with an awesome ability to render dreams into a reality, and with capabilities that can move mountains, and with a vision that can reach as far out as the first point of light and beyond. Wow. So sustainability is vital to YOU.

and Here I am.

Every human is an offering to the present and a promise to its future. Whatever one's purpose or promise, having emerged into this fathomless swirl, discovering that each human is endowed with a formidable gift - joy - a dynamic regenerator, a super power, a transparent secret; there is a sense that something remarkable is afoot. Reciprocity is essential to it.

Joy's faucets (as it were) are woven into the fabric of being. Gratitude turns on this fountain of joy. Mindfulness turns a tap on this fountain, as if by an invisible hand. Caring does this too. Laughter does. Fruiting, creating, completing: these all activate taps on this fountain of joy.

Love - that which is neither compromised by deceit nor flattered by ego - is an invigorative ride along joy's sparkling rapids (fountains frequently overflowing). Yep, something remarkable is afoot: reproducibility is key.

Despite all of that prep work . . .




Were we to unravel our story smartly, earth's most remarkable creature - the human - is matched to the ingenuity of their unfolding universe and conditioned to discover itself as well as to decipher supreme mysteries. The human by storylines authored - if story is allowed; or imagined - as creativity permits; or designed - as ingenuity prefers; or evolved - as science reveals; is biologically assembled with three genius essentials:

1) four distinct capacities that can be aptly organized and re-organized to birth any and every capability required for progress

  • adaptability
  • creativity
  • empathy
  • intelligence

2) six stages of a remarkable lifecycle that allows human capacities full bloom

  • foetus
  • baby
  • child
  • adolescent
  • adult
  • elder

3) three methods of reproducibility (its mysteries resolved compensatory to one's level of creative intelligence)

As fun and fruitful as it is delving into the treasures of our protagonist's mind, spirit and soul, specifically to discover how he or she (that's Y.O.U.) might respond to having been privileged with this gift of life, to be focused and for simplicity let's train this microscope on a specific sector of the human's biology: the human has a remarkable body.

Here are a few telling nuggets.

You've probably heard or seen this foursome bandied as the body's natural happiness chemicals, namely, dopamine, oxytocin, endorphin, and serotonin: The Happy Hormones - a blueprint of joy's drillable wells, according to our story.



DOPAMINE - dubbed The Reward Chemical - is a hormone (chemical messenger in the brain) involved in reward, motivation, memory, attention, and much more, silently influencing how we feel pleasure, how we think and plan and strive and focus: influencing our sense of well-being.

Eating healthy foods (lots of proteins, nuts and beans, less saturated fats); sleeping well; exercising regularly; removing ourselves from unhealthy stressors, active self-care, achieving goals, completing tasks; they all contribute to the release of natural dopamine, keeping us uplifted. A natural high!

Tap into joy: deliver value to the solution.


ENDORPHIN - dubbed The Feel Good Hormone - is produced naturally by our nervous system to cope with pain and stress (a pain-reliever and happiness booster).

You've probably heard of or experienced a runner's high after lengthy, vigorous exercise. Endorphins did it. Boost your endorphins with regular exercise, volunteering - giving - helping, yoga, meditation, spicy foods, dark chocolate, laughter. Each and all of which are proven activators. Endorphin has a well-desreved scientifically confirmed reputation: a natural pain-killer.

Tap into joy: enjoy healthy laughter.


OXYTOCIN - dubbed The Love Hormone - is a hormone and a neurotransmitor involved in childbirth and breast feading, and is frequently associated with empathy, trust, sexual activity, and relationship building.

Hugging, kissing, cuddling, sexual activities, socialising, petting animals, helping others, and reciprocity are activities that can trigger oxytocin production, which you can also find in a variety of foods, especially those containing Vitamin D, Vitamin C, magnesium, and dietary fats (such as fatty fish, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, spinach and avocados).


Be In Love

Tap into joy: embody your uniqueness.


SEROTONIN - dubbed THE MOOD STABILIZER - is a monoamine neurotransmitter whose complex biological functions modulate mood, cognition, reward, learning, memory, anger, aggression, appetite, cardiovascular functions, feelings of well-being, and numerous physiological processes.

It can be enhanced naturally with proper exposure to sunlight, with mindfulness, meditation, and being in nature appreciating life's rich diversity.


Your Cells



YOU have come to appreciate that there is just something about gatherings around the kitchen table, and in a dining room, and around a barbeque pit or a picnic basket. There is just something about these activities. YOU wonder what it could be. Is it the food? Is it warmth? Is it the storytelling? Is it laughter? Is it the company? What is it? Then YOU begin to think, might it be that masked behind these ready options, these social exchanges, these traditions, is something far more refreshing: closer proximity to taps on fountains of joy? Aha.

You receive advice:



When strangers meet you who do they see?

Then comes bad news. In every storied world where YOU are the protagonist, there are antagonists and villains and lay-abouts. YOU may wonder what gives: are these variants improperly assembled? A closer examination reveals disturbing correlations:

  • variations in adaptability
  • variations in creativity
  • variations in empathy
  • variations in intelligence

where some of these misaligned variants are irrationally compounded by various six-stage lifecycle complications. Then a battle is enjoined: devils & demons, monsters & dragons, angels & unicorns, villains & stooges. What does 'YOU' do now?

In fact, now that the script is plucked from your casual view, what would be your significant contribution were you destined to be dispatched into such an arena and advised therein to live out YOUR GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD? What would be the climax of YOUR story?


"We may not yet have reached our glory, but I will gladly join the fight. And when our children tell their story they'll tell the story of tonight. They'll tell the story of tonight." Passion. Promise. Purpose. Peace. Authenticity. Reciprocity. Reproducibility. Adaptability.


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

Why would anyone waste energy keeping up appearances when one might just as well invest that very energy toward becoming what one is pretending to be? And what when one discovers that those he or she is trying to impress with charades either don't care or don't matter or both? Meanwhile, one is sorely missing out on opportunities to embrace those who authentically adore such a quirky, flawed, adorable just-as-one-is relationship.

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. That's what we've found. And it is awesome. How about you?


Don't Quit

What story will the children tell, knowing some will live it as if they know it quite well; some will shout it from the core of their being; some will imbibe every drop and transform the world they live in?








what's your valued contribution


Welcome to SEASON SEVEN, 're-CLAIMED,' episode ten - phenomenally you - curated by Neville DeAngelou. We are growing preciously aware of the breadth and depth of ongoing global transitions and transformations. We are enthused, the rich beneficiaries of greater exposure to a wide spectra of innovative solutions to known challenges. These solutions are being implemented by folks who either knowingly or unwittingly embrace the adjacent possible. These folks are bolstered for extraordinary efforts; they reclaimed joy. They rediscovered its super strength. This joy is not a capacity produced by dint of sweat then stored. Rather, this joy is an invaluable resource we've learned to tap. That itself is huge. In this episode we sample immense challenges. We highlight a variety of ways folks are making valued contributions to solve them. They do so by addressing needs beyond their own, by uplifting lives in replicatable ways, and by not shying away from issues that seem intractable and-or are intentionally embattled. We make note that their positive momentum is monumentally bolstered by a better understanding of how we are all built, and by an acceptance that there is a something special within each of us. We are adaptable, creative, empathic, intelligent beings. We accept that our presence in this world is a gift to us, and for that we are grateful, and with pleasure we employ our gifts to design and create better access to and brighter avenues through our world despite fraught circumstances. We listen. We learn as we go. We recalibrate as we know. We are by no means each of us all the same. Nevertheless! We've reclaimed our time. We've reclaimed our mind. We've reclaimed our joy. We are not done reclaiming. Oh, Glory. YOU are phenomenal. Hats off to Y.O.U. Isn't life fascinating?


Take action.

- you can too -


JOY  feasts in high company with  peace  and  love. (Personal peace - peace which befuddles common understanding. Real love - an extraordinary bond. This is that  love which is neither compromised by deceit nor flattered by ego.)  One's experience of this joy, this love, this peace, is not merely different by its nature from one's expression of these, the difference is substantively revealing, informative, dynamic, and consequential.

We are a peculiar people, you and I, intricately interwoven (internally, externally), marvelously made, unique, phenomenal. We create patterns by the way we are. These patterns are exposed and-or reflected by what we do (how we talk, how we walk, how we dress, how and what we consume, how we interact with each other and with our world - our evnironment, our neighbors, our planet, our universe). These patterns reveal what we truly believe, what we intimately value, our true pursuits, despite any alternative claim, and such patterns are alterable.

One's experience of joy - this joy - regardless of its contextual framing or the nature of our understanding (i.e., whether we consider joy's foundation to be built, or inheritted, or earned, or gifted), is by definition personal - intimately so. Its only revelations are through our natural senses. What it is is appreciated at the level of one's understanding. It is a function of the state of one's neural network, regardless of what it may inspire or initiate. We have choices on whether and how to translate this phenomenal experience. Experiencing joy is entirely internal. Personal. Private. Housed independent of any awareness or of the existence of others. And it holds immense transformative power.

We are remarkable beings - you and I. 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 have agency. But not all of us are free.

One's expression of this joy has everything to do with relationships: one's relationship with one's self, with one's originator, with one's environment, with one's family, friends, communities, companions. Expression is an action; it has external impact; it is dynamic; it has consequence. Any expression of this joy absent a corresponding equivalent experience is a fantasy, a fiction, not substantive of what it projects iself to be, and yet that too, that projection, that fiction, that fantasy, is by its expression real; it has real impact; it is dynamic; it has consequence.

Our experience and our expressions of joy create patterns. Patterns influence quality of life; they influence designs; they influence how we talk, how we walk, how we dress, how and what we consume, how we interact with each other and with our world; they influence response. These patterns accurately reflect passion, purpose, promise, and personal peace, despite alternative claims. We create patterns reflective of what's happening in our lives. We can design patterns suitable to the aspirations of our life. We have that choice. But not everyone is capable. Not everyone is free.




small steps - huge difference




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




Today's pivot QUESTION: once again imagine you've been plucked, gracefully, from where you are and lifted into an amazing place you approve of, where anything 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 let's say that right 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:

what on earth specifically registers your living gratitude (if so) for this gift of new life?

Perhaps the fact that the people most affected by climate change are no longer some imagined future generation, but young people alive today, perhaps that would give us the impetus we need to rewrite our story, to turn this tragedy into a triumph. We are, after all, the greatest problem solvers to have ever existed on earth. _ DAVID ATTENBOROUGH



"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.

Caught amidst the crisscrossing of crowds along your journey where many may habitually conflate or mistake or confuse the bottle for its medicine, the pot for its food, the pipe for its water, you may be excused for feeling you know better therefore you will do better, yet still be blissfully unware that such habits as detailed are a mind-creep, unaware you may be already mistaking music for radio. Even so, it proves wise to be ever aware: this is your life, ONLY YOU can live it. Living is pocked with contradictions and conspiracies, and sometimes it is grace that takes us through. Isn't that awesome? Kindness is too.

"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!

Home sweet Home

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 and emotional health. Let light into your space. allow your beauty to reflect that light. Be all of you. Cheers.



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

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.
