That Style of Magnificence: YOU Did It!

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

Imperfectly Perfect

On The Cusp of Beautiful => Built Updatable

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


Beyond The Hero, traveling the road of significance, life trends toward awesome. There, where every appreciating masterpiece is designed with a continuously updatable matrix, to be or not to be remains a most invigorating question. It is, in fact, an eminently uncoverable interrogator. Impetuous too! Though, it stays settled on solvable states! Have you noticed? You are that masterpiece.

Each muscular masterpiece - a contiguous array of collaborative puzzles - continuously realigns and recalibrates itself to be in tune with the clarity of its mission beyond the hero. However, this is persistently probative: to be or not to be! Such focused attention is an awesome experience. It is primed with epiphanies. Have you noticed? You are that solution.

In high school, you might recall, while in the commons area there were some who spewed each other with spectacular sentiments apropos to some particular acculturation. Perhaps more memorable and not so spectacular are the many preferred or provocative teenage spit bombs! Has the good life and a critical mission defused or re-purposed those? This latter would be awesome.

Perhaps you were spared the pimpled phase and drew swords with these classical trades:

"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures." (Julius Ceaser)


“If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.” (Twelfth Night)


"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." (Hamlet)

A kindly out of the blue reflection from those three has favored me with a joyful epiphany. What about you? Did you arrive here by way of the hero's journey, having answered a call to adventure, where at its dare you leapt blind, though not blindly, into a dark, and bravely (or perhaps brazenly) confronted your discovery? It is personal. How did you come through your trials? What monster did you slay? What problem did you solve? Did you confront your worst fears, your darkest hour, your deepest crisis, your relentless villains, the evil that wants you out? What knocked you down? What got you up? How did you overcome? These, if true, reveal your power. What is your power? These, if true, gifted you treasures? How would you use your treasure? Have your answers at the ready.

Welcome to episode seven of BEYOND THE HERO - transformed - curated by Neville DeAngelou, enjoined by a cloud of witnesses cheering the transformed (built updatable) into their brand new world. EVERYTHING each of us does contributes to the state of the whole. Your action and non-action matter.


"Our doubts are traitors."


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: you are wise, you are smart; you've taken deep breaths and centered yourself; you reflected, re-evaluated and recalibrated; you're refueled; you've come to an enlightened realization: you live in a complex world; you will not tolerate nor habitate being told who you are, what you are, what to believe, or how to believe nor when; you own full responsibility for your intentions and actions; you understand there are always consequences (known and unknown, intended and unintended) to your actions, regardless of intention; and you are cognizant of a world that is noisy and clouded with misinformation, disinformation, misdirection, unscrupulous actors, well-intentioned misdirected actors, puppets, and villains, just as populated as it is with well intentioned like-minded colleages, collaborators and creators,

- what do you do to mitigate the bad (that which will trip or trap you) and engage what is best for your mission, your journey, your community, and you?

It's Your World To Shape Now

One of the joys exiting the 4th quadrant of the hero's journey is transformation. Without that transformation, one merely had an expereince, perhaps a harrowing experience or even a memorable or rewarding experience, but merely an experience. But You did it. You came through. You are now better acquainted with the style of your magnificence. You know you. You understand you, uniquely you.

Think of a piano: it matters spectacularly who is at its keys - playing each. Doesn't it? And the tune matters too!

You matter.

The tune you choose to play matters.

It is not unusual for persons to have the experience of a journey repeated time and again, none resulting in any transformation. History is replete with accounts of those, and with those who are stuck along that journey, and those who are defeated by the journey, and those who are conditioned to wait. Those who are transformed, having gone through, behold a brand new world. They are empowered. These enabled graduates are accepted into their new school of learning as creators of a new reality, developers of an exciting new creation. Leaders. The best part is this: these have no need to return to their journey of origination for a repeat of their epic transformation; they are now built updatable. And that is awesome.

How about your fourth-quarter journey? Have you come through? What treasures have you unearthed? Are you transformed or was it simply an exceptional experience? What did you learn? Can you bring to mind any historical, religious or literary transformation that demonstrates to you the power and benefits of an authentic transformation? What have you learned from those? How do they compare to your experience? Do you trust your transformation if you've had one? Are you living in doubt, in praise, in gratitude, or how would you categorize it? Are you ready to go beyond?

BEYOND THE HERO, the skills used along each journey of signifcance were honed from the hero's journey where no hero can go it alone or come through without being transformed. BEYOND THE HERO, its leaders are of a brand new breed, as we shall discover. BEYOND THE HERO, how updated are you on your journey of significance?




"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

Perspective matters.


"Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances." _ Sun Tzu


Have you a cause so compelling your being exists precisely for it? Is your cause SO JUST it is worthy of the time, space, and efforts required to achieve it? Does your cause keep you fired up, does it give you a reason to rise into every fresh new day ready for it? What is your power and what fuels it? How ready, willing and able are you to lead your mission to completion?

What is your strategy?

Having a vision and knowing your mission along the journey of significance is essential, as you know. Understanding your skills, honing your skills, and using your skills smartly are all essential, not only to the success of your mission, also to the fullness of your expression of your intention during the execution of your strategy. However, there is nothing accountable for you to execute if you have no viable strategy.

So how did you determine the smartest strategy for your mission?

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."

How is the company you keep; is it keeping you positioned at your preferred level?



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!

Conditioning Is Key

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.

Get Ready: Make Your Own Bed.

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? You make your bed you sleep in it. However, before you did, someone else was making it for you, whether or not that making was best suited for you. Let's work on our fitness too. Total fitness is not a one-time thing.



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.

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.
