The Unceasing Turning of The Leaves of Life

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

a Quality of Being

Passion. Promise. Purpose. Peace. This integration is the context, the framework, the lifestyle, the confidence, within which this segment - joy reclaimed - of the series, re-claimed, is explored and sampled. Emphatically so through the natural seasons of life! And isn't it fascinating to realize or to discover or to visualize a river flowing in each of us, as it were, and that beneath it rolls an ocean? Joy! Nourishing the story of our lives.

This is awesome.

Though we embrace other compatible frameworks that are equally sustainable and satisfying, in joy - this joy - we are strong. Stable. Sound. Agile. Wholly human. Artists. Believers. Creators. Dreamers. Entrepreneurs. Unceasingly turning the leaves of life. Continuously becoming. Indeed, we choose who we are - emphatically so - through transitions of growth and, as much as is practicable, we are living in the zone, expanding that zone, functioning in flow, resolved respectfully to a reality that values each of us throughout its grand unfolding.

How about you?



No panacea. Confidence. The recognitioon of how intricately connected we are (learning from each other as we go, resolved to be ever more aware and open to wonder and to the promises of life) is nutritiously engaging and fruitful, building out the story of our lives. This confidence stabilizes us, for it is undergirded by the pliable pillars of a firm foundation - joy.

Perhaps you also have found or established or been gifted a firm foundation. Isn't it telling, though, how differently those of us who are that privileged might respond in due course? A cursory examination reveals three options frequently exercised when one is assured of a solid foundation. If we categorize its inspired activities in the following manner, the experiences and outcomes from each choice prove to be distinctly different, and that, not only because their required values are substantially different, intentions are intrinsically different. The three options are:

  • a) to fortify
  • b) to forage
  • c) to flow.

Have you experienced or examined your operating / life's foundation in this way? If so, or if you recognize that framing, with which of those three operating modes are you more in balance or in rhythm and what values come into play?



A river flows in us. In you. An ocean rolls beneath. There are islands, and springs, and geysers, and rapids, and mighty waves. You are such a masterpiece. I am. We are. And each of us is permitted a gift - joy - a dynamic regenerator. Yes, joy. A lightness of being. Confidence. That's awesome.



When you look in the mirror what do you see?

This confidence is not certainty and it is not hubris. This confidence emanates from an expanding awareness of our DNA, and the quality of our evolving community, and the choices we make, and the risks we are prepared to take. It takes practice.

  1. Give yourself a challenge worthy of you.
  2. Realize that it is not going to be easy.
  3. Accept that you will make mistakes.
  4. Be kind to yourself when you do.
  5. Give yourself a pep talk.
  6. Stand up and Go FOR IT.
  7. Do it again.

"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. Confident. Ready.



Judge Not!

Embrace enriched experiences.


Worthy challenges stretch us. Worthy challenges expand our limits. Worthy challenges nudge and push and shove us into unfamiliar spaces. We discover. We re-discover. We make mistakes. We learn from our mistakes. We do better. We become. Momentum.

Through it, even with our best efforts, we are often wounded - bruised, broken, battered, pushed out of balance - and need timely healing, restoration, rejuvenation, renewal, a recongfiguration of our stamina to stand stronger in that better version of ourself.

Without that renewal we remain weakened. Our immune systems (body, soul, spirit and mind) are compromised. We are vulnerable. More wounds. This occurs in many different ways. We stall. We languish. We blah!

Healing is a necessity.

Giving and taking of offense, for example, are wounds. Judging others is evidence of a wound, a sign of creeping self-righteousness or imbeded self-righteousness or fostered self-righteousness, which, untill healed, devolves into a variety of chronic self-inflicting toxicities with viral capabilites, poisoning the well-srping of life. Likewise with all manner of dissonance and distancing from rhythms of love - that love which is neither compromised by deceit nor flattered by ego. Wounds.

Healing is a necessary part of growth, of expansion, of evolution, of becoming, of being. Tending to wounds, pruning, prepping, preventing, are necessary elements of joyful living - one's nurtured garden. Repair. Replace. This is not about owning a stiff upper lip. This is not about punishment. This is the champion's process - a well-prepared life. Being ready. Restore Confidence. This is the unfolding of our story. Passion. Promise. Purpose. Peace. New pages until the last. This the children see and feel and become to know well. In this manner we stimulate their minds and muscles, their drives and dreams. This is the story the children will tell. They matter.


REFLECT. re-learn. re-frame. RENEW.

The more we discover of this universe, the more it changes us; the more it changes us, the more of it we change. It is this way too with our joy - true joy - an incredible source of strength - a super power in the lives of the transformed. In this episode we sample its remarkable impact on creativity and lifestyles. Discover how much joy matters. This is a quality life.

Supreme Champions DO IT differently!

- you can too -


We are a peculiar people, you and I, intricately interwoven (internally, externally), marvelously made, unique, talented. Exercise this talent again and again then over again and again one thousand times; we now have a skill. Exquisite. We do this so well ten thousand times, one hundred thousands times, we're heading into the realm of mastery: a fine pattern of living. This is where champions begin.

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 what we do. Uniquely, how we do it!






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




Today's pivot QUESTION: let's look at your 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.

Remember: it is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Regardless, you do not walk alone. 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. Unawares, 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.

A beautiful 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.

a Space for Children

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. You were once a child too. Create spaces for children: let them see you aglow. Allow them full space - wide berth - to grow. Even if they hear you speaking they listen to what you do. That is the story they will tell.



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.
