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?

a World

World In Tansition

In Transition



Imperfectly Perfect

The inescapable POD: that secret chord!

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


Copies proliferate our world.

There is much on copying's upside evidenced by the spectra of growth and expansion furninshing consumerist demands, our sustenance, and survival needs. Why re-invent the wheel? Nature copies. Wisdom is our friend.

Not so long ago, a certain mantra dominated our soundwaves: bigger, better, faster, stronger (alike with other versions therefrom still echoing). The originators and first evangelists of that chant were not born in the bloom of Instagram and Facebook and Twitter and Amazon and Apple and Google and Alibaba and Zoom and Reddit, nor even through the viral spread of the Internet. You are!

The creators and propagators of Instagram and Facebook and Twitter and Amazon and Apple and Google and Alibaba and Zoom and Reddit (and the list goes long) were not born in the wake of their inventions. You are!

You who were born into the swells and swerves of their creation, or adopted into it! Or dragged! To us - naturally - (even if we objectively or informatively reframe the notion) - it is as if our world always was as we experience it and therefore our experience is foundational to the existence of whatever will be. We are born that way! You, however, are in a world they were NOT born into. They invented it. Let that seep through and settle. This is of vital importance - if you are awake with me. Breathe.

And COPIES proliferate.

These COPIES are not fashioned with their chords!
These COPIES are not fashioned with their chords!
These COPIES are not fashioned with their chords!

This awareness is of vital importance - if you are awake with me. Breathe.

This particular kind of COPYING is forged by different sets of passions: perhaps a hunger for riches or status or power or respect, or at opportunity, or by riptide. So what? None of those fires is in and of itself a bad blaze! Or a good blaze! Any passion might well be worth the heat. BUT!!! NB. This copying is not passioned with their chords. (I'll repeat.) It is not passioned with their chords. AND!! Wherever you go, whatever you do, you take yourself with you.

This awareness is of vital importance - if you are awake with me. Breathe.

Copying is NOT in of itself bad or good, just in case one is inclined to assign judgment (good - bad - indifferent) on such unfoldings or realizations, or if perchance one finds it difficult differentiating discovery or revelation from moralizing or dogma. Copying speeds things up. And there are disadvantages. This unfolding is NOT about either.

This awakening is about one's secret chord! Yours! Mine! His! Hers! Theirs! Wherever one goes, whatever one does, that secret chord remains dead or alive in you!

Alert in this light, we may choose to pose and respond to a personal question: am I a copy? (Who is in my mirror - today?)

Nevertheless, our operative question is this: what is my secret chord?

Welcome to episode one of BEYOND THE HERO - seeing - curated by Neville DeAngelou. In a world in which there is nothing new under the sun a Mozart's symphony, Molto Allegro, let's say, if missing but one chord is incomplete. This season reminds us, viscerally, we are made complete. And that is awesome.


It is wise to be wise.


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: let's say this certain experience is not new to you; there is a song in your soul, as it were, that you must sing, but you do not know how to sing it; there is a way you must build across the sky, but you do not know how to build it

- how do you learn when there is no one real that can teach what they have never done or seen or felt or touched or heard or tasted, what you must do?

A New Vision

In storied language, arriving BEYOND THE HERO, embarking this new journey, one would have taken the hero's journey and mastered the hero's way, by which means one has earned the willingness, readiness and courage to travel to this new world.

Upon arrival one must be able to climb to the top of one's personal Kasbah and reach for the New Vision. This will prove to be no ordinary mission, but worth every moment of its awesome pleasure.


No Time Refunded


"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


New Vision

Without a vision the people perish!


It is valuable to be fully acquainted with the parameters and characteristics of the New Vision, less one is unwittingly deceived, dissuaded or distracted, or hurried off the Kasbah much too soon.

Vision is an experience!

It is not intention.

It is not a wish.

It is not thought.

It is an experience that is as real and tangible as touch. You feel it.

It is a repeatable experience that exists in real  three-dimensional space.

Vision is not imagination. Great imagination is awesome and necessary. Good intention is worthwhile and essential, but it is not vision. This is a vision that resonates with one's secret chord. The awesome challenge is to CAPTURE that vision, to be able to picture it, replicate it, draw it, represent it in all of its sparkling detail, to not allow it to be intruded upon nor blurred nor washed out nor disfigured. Totally owned.

Are you in possession of your vision? You will need it for your next reliable action. This is your tableau vivant - the living picture of your dream. And it is awesome.

You are always welcome to consult freely with our regularly updated TRANSFORMATIONAL HABITS and other phenomenal playlists - styled for your convenience with contributions from your favorite peoples. Click. Take. Peruse. Use freely.








"An infinity of forests lies dormant in the dream of an accorn."

_ The Tea Lover



Somethings To Consider

What did you learn from your hero's journey? What skills did you hone through its mastery? What is your secret chord? How detailed is your vision?

NB: The vision is your vision. If your vision is unique no one else would have seen it or have possession of it. The task of rendering it visible, if it needs to be rendered, BELONGS to YOU.

Are you prepared to OWN that challenge?


Those who know better are better positioned to be better!



Action Options: things you may do where appropriate while practicing SD

  1. Count blessings
  2. Read - Read - Read - (Listen) to books you're curious about
  3. Start writing! Journaling! Visualizing! Meditating!
  4. Go running
  5. Go cycling
  6. Learn something new - maybe a new language / an online course
  7. Re-acquaint yourself with nature - bird-watching - hiking - gardening
  8. Make that new recipe or invent one
  9. Do puzzles / board games for families (or homies)
  10. Call that person! Call that person! Call that person!
  11. Drop a dish / Leave a note / Let someone know you're available (if you are)
  12. Count blessings

Remember: this is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Live purposefully; that is profitable.




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."

When did you last learn something new that you will use?



Dragons of Romania

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!

How We Live

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 Home Not Built With Bricks Alone.

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? How solid is its foundation? Who owns your home?



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.

2:26 AM - The Gathering (SBL Audio Dramatized)
on Audible on Apple (iTunes) on Amazon

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. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up." Martin Luther King Jr. Look. Listen. Learn. STRETCH! (A Place Called Ah.)

We are accompanied.
