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?

The Conversation Continues


Your Private Coach







Hold Up The Light

When I was 12 or 13 years old, I had an encounter with my father that had an enormous impact on me. I was working after school as a cleaner in a woman's house and not doing a very good job. I didn't know how. I scrubbed floors on my knees, and she had a mop. I had never seen a vacuum cleaner. The money was small, but it was everything, and at some point I complained to my mother about the woman who had hired me. My mother said I should quit, but obviously I wanted those few coins so I didn't. And yet when I spoke to my father he just looked at me and said, "Listen, you don't live there, you live here."

Now a lot of times people say simple things and it's not so much what they say as what you hear. I heard, "Do your work well, not for who hires you but for yourself." I heard, "You make the job, it doesn't make you." I heard, "You are not the work, you are not the job, you are the person." My father's words affected me all my life, because I was always interested in doing first-rate work, and I was always interested in knowing that I could not be defined by the work I did. I didn't have to say, "I'm a teacher, I'm an editor, I'm a housekeeper, I'm a waitress." Those were occupations, but there was a person back there, and I think it was the person who was enabled, ultimately, to begin to write books much later in life.

Toni Morrison - the perfect seam


"You don't live there, you live here."

There is so much in this that registers profoundly well, that is centering, that awakens and uplifts - you don't live there, you live here - that is regenerative and reverberates, (magnificence), and is reminiscent of children listening, noticing, realizing, redesigning warped spaces; of prescient minds being nurtured. Here is someone holding up a light exactly where it is needed: a decision point; that welcomed clarity: you don't live there, you live here. Listen.

When I was a wee-boy needing a mother's holding hand to cross a street, I was taken to an extraordinary place several times - for sure - unless I was dreaming. I was unaware at each of those occasions that I was being taken to this special place, and at each disappointment thereafter I remained unsure if I would ever be taken there again.

I soon began to day-dream of that place, for it was a world outside of me, a bright and sunny world of glossy greens and dusty browns; a flourishing flare of nature - delightful - (if infatuation of wee-boy memories are allowed here); a world I could hug like a globe and peer through. Its innards fluttered musically and was scattered with playful patterns rich in stories no one elsewhere tells. I had much rather be there with birds of every color than where the world went through me and in its kerfuffle dove in and out of my spacious belly like chased dolphins. But I didn't know where the special place was, or how to get there, or how to ask to be taken there. For sure, the special place I resonated so infectiously with was as real and as magical as necessary. I could breathe there, and each time was revived, easily that is, before the spell was broken.

The going and coming to and from that place before the spell was broken happened (to put it succinctly) in this fashion:

  • a grungy odor of oil and gas and grime and steam encircles me
  • mom holds my hand firmly, hustling me up through a hurried press of humans and animals crossing a broad wooden bridge
  • quickly, that bridge folds up behind us, closing us in with no way back
  • there's rattling and shuffling and odd creaks, and finally a seat
  • this is where the circus is; for to me it is a circus, since I had never seen one before this first time nor knew how a circus ought to be; perhaps someone muttered, what a circus, imprinting these wild crops of predictable charades as a circus, amiable in all of its wellknown contortions
  • after a while, waves of golden light and rocking shadows crisscross me
  • soon thereafter mom holds my hand firmly, hustles me up and onto a grungy bridge appearing from nowhere, like magic, and suddenly all around me is magnificence. Like a miracle! A brand new world! Life. Living. Love. Light. Rhapsody.
  • there, I am, with no reflective sense of time, only of being, and of being allowed to be, and of relishing whatever being is; boyishly refreshing it is; revitalizing
  • soon, too soon, with no warning, this cold shower, this tugged-up pants, this tucked-in shirt, this shuffle up the bridge, these creaks, this circus, despite a bright expectancy, do not lead to golden crisscrossing lights
  • a grungy odor of oil and gas and grime and steam encircles me
  • the world goes through me, diving in and out, like salmon up a wild stream.

Listen: you don't live there, you live here!

Here, too often, I overhear nosey visitors enquiring of my mom whether I speak, or know how to speak, or is tongue-tied - so quiet, that boy!

"He speaks," she'd say. "He speaks when there is a need," her warm glance like a signal, and I smille, naturally, and everyone around me smile, their shadows now bouncing gleefully around our room, while the world takes leave of its senses.

Here, where my only un-invadable privacy are my undisclosed thoughts, stealthily my mom's hand would often brush or caress my head and I'd hear her saying the likes of "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water!" And my reflexive mind would wrinkle. "What baby! All I see is dirty water." Though, my wee-wee-hood was way too wee-wee to have known to coin my clarity in that manner. {Ah, but, miracle of miracles: it was another seed planted, another candle lit, a necessary innoculation.}

Here, where quiet is not silence; here, barely a mother's arms length from engraved human patterns which to an observant wee-boy are as squirly as cats and dogs ravaging fields where squirrels hide their nuts; here, stealthily, my mom's hand would brush or caress my head as she whispers the likes of, "Don't go chasing ghosts down rabbit holes!" whispering at such times when I did not have the reflexive muscle to clap back, "I am not chasing them; they are chasing me up and down unvanishable winds." {Ah, but, miracle of miracles: it was another seed planted, another candle lit, a necessary innoculation.}

Here where I live, with these and in many other marvelous ways, as I dream of the special place and am too wee-wee to comprehend time's ability to tick lives into oblivion, mom is gently, graciously, weaving into minds and spirits a lasting desire for learning, and the joy of learning, and the awesome value of being life-long-learners - ooh, what a Lady - weaving seeds into my stitched pouches, planting seeds in patches of our nourished plots, innoculating us against manipulating diseases, leaving legacies, not in brick or mortar, rather in hearts and healthy minds, doing these so seamlessly I am unaware of the particular effort required of such work, that is, of course, before the spell was broken.

Then one day, while not wee-wee but still a boy, she dispatched me across vast waters - alone - on a grave emergency. When I arrived I was taken aback by a bright unmistakable familiarity. I wondered if I was dreaming or had slipped into a weird trance.

This is the place! This is the place. This is the place. I kept telling myself, this is the place, but the grave emergency had me in its grip, so I began to doubt. Then, having attended to the emergency I came to realize by way of that attention what I have now ascertained to be

a) the invaluable confidence of knowing someone dependable has your back, unconditionally

b) there is a place called home; it is essential knowing exactly where that is

c) someone is holding up the light

I could no longer deny the unmisakable patterns: this is that special place; this is the place mom used to bring me to, the place where I breathed so easily and was always revived. This is the home of my mother's childhood. This is that special place!

And the spell was broken for its realness.

Listen, you don't live there, you live here.

So today, when a six year old boy with his parents permission asked me for a hug, and upon hugging him, a seven year old boy ran up and hugged me, and all around us smilles bloomed - oh, what synchronocity - I can tell you most assuredly it was not us alone hugging. I perceive these boys perceived - miracle of miracles - seeds were planted, candles were lit. These were innoculations against manipulating diseases. Hope! Renewal. Time reclaimed. For it is never not just what is said, it is what is heard. It is not only what is done, it is always what is felt.

Today, I maintain a space where I live - a special place - celebrating and honoring the legends who shape our lives - my life - who keep my candles lit, who whisper when a whisper is warranted, and shout across distracting noises so I hear and understand, who lift me onto their shoulders so I see, and let me stand upon their strong foundations so I am confident, who water the seeds my mother planted so that I am nourished and grow, and am able. They are mighty. They are many. They hold up a light. They are timeless. And you?

Isn't life truly amazing? Isn't it awesome?

Supreme Champions THINK differently!

- you can too -


Attributable to Bruce Lee is this gem, which richly informs us: "Instead of buying your children all the things you never had, you should teach them all the things you were never taught. Material wears out but knowledge stays."

Patterns of life and living are all around us - like open source codes - generously repeating their stories. Revealing. Re-telling. Repeating. Reminding us that time is eternity's gift to each of us. To you! It is of benefit to be honest, at least enough to acknowledge to ourselves that what we are seeing we are seeing, what we are hearing we are hearing, what is being done is being done, what is happening is happening, and having verified these, to be bold enough to make ever smarter decisions - the next action - based upon these IMPROVEMENTS to our knowing. We find this to be time smartly invested; used-time re-purposed, re-designed, re-claimed! This is your time. It is your turn. You can change the game.




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




Today's pivot QUESTION: there is established a huge physiological and psychological difference between burying your head in sand and riding above a storm;

what patterns predict your default choices and how do you use examined outcomes to make your next move better?

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. Many patterns of one's life are set so early, one has little or less say in their setting, but how wonderful it is, isn't it, when one discovers one is privileged with a power to choose what patterns to shed and which to keep each and everytime one wants better or different and knows better or differently, and in so doing re-designs the patterns of one's life even when doing so is neither swift nor easy. Isn't that awesome?  It is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it.




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.

Where is your 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. Are you there yet? We live amongst viruses and bacteria: some are villains and some are monsters. Don't feed 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. Breathe fresh air. Allow yourself the space to breathe. Allow others their space to breathe. Breathe. Home is serenity.



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.
