Want to change the world?

September 10th, 2012

We’ve just returned from our annual pilgrimage to BurningMan where we gave away over 1100 Cleus to dusty pilgrims who used only word-of-mouth or the Cleu labyrinth to find their way to Cleu camp, located way out on the edge of Black Rock City. Meeting people from all over this fantastic city gave me a vision of circles connecting with circles. Intertwining circles made for magical synchronicities and spontaneous creativity every day on the empty canvas of the playa. My own Cleu reminds me daily of the power of the circle.

Want to change the world? Meet regularly in circle. Start with 2-3 people who either have a clue or are looking for one. Remember: everyone has a clue, but not everyone wants to know about it, and some people deny or reject their clue. Look for people who are open to the mystic truth of At-Onement and the miracles of Consciousness, Life, Earth, Universe. Take a look at the Cleu Book to see more about our vision as well as our human rites and spiritual practices. Get together every week. Make that your first intention. Commit to meeting together in circle as indigenous people have done for millenia. Everything else will follow.

Isles of Wonder: London 2012

July 27th, 2012

Instead of the usual experienced athlete, seven teenagers with potential lit the Olympic cauldron at the London 2012 Olympics. From the Olympic torch, they passed the flame to 204 petals representing all the nations competing in the Olympics. When the petals were raised, they formed one glorious blossom, shining as One.

We are all Olympians. Reflect on those moments when synchronicities occur, patterns or coincidences that seem like magic, except that they are part of the fabric of the universe. Envision a piece of medieval chainmail, a rippling metal fabric made of interlocking circles. When we connect, synchronicities happen. Meeting in circle and connecting with other circles provides both power and protection, making us strong, flexible, and resilient. Whether we engage in friendly competition, or cooperate to create a greater harmony, we belong together. When we can do both for the benefit of all, we excel.

I have a dream

January 16th, 2012

I have a dream that one day everyone will wake up and get a clue! Better yet, wake up and be the clue. We need you! Martin Luther King tells us that “Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.” If you have a clue, you are likely to be a cultural creative, uncomfortable with the dominant cultural paradigm of materialism, militarism, and mainstream religion. The CLEU is here to help you find your way to a new cultural paradigm based on our common vision and values. We support you in claiming your spiritual identity and developing your spiritual community. Wear your Cleu and share its meaning. Look for others who have a clue and meet weekly in circle. Read the Cleu Book and discuss how to put your values into action. Celebrate your human rites. Pool your resources and build infrastructure. Go on pilgrimage. Reach out to others. Work together for a better world. Become part of something bigger than yourself. I have a dream that someday there will be a Cleu circle in every community!

Happy Cleu Year!

December 31st, 2011

Congratulations on making 2011 one of the most inspiring years ever, and now get ready for 2012! You’ve made it this far on the strength of your convictions, your willingness to show up, and the power of creative memes spreading a message of compassion and a cry for justice far and wide. Even when facing arrest or state violence, people of all ages continue to dedicate themselves to making a difference. Global consciousness is awakening, thanks to the power of choosing to occupy a common space. People are speaking with one voice on behalf of humanity, Life, and the Earth. The technology of social media helps to facilitate global connections and resource sharing, but the real power is in meeting face-to-face on a regular basis. Now is the time to develop local, sustainable networks. As we move into the winter of our occupation, we need more than political organizations because at its heart, this is truly a spiritual movement. In the coming year, let’s get together even more!

Dusty pilgrims

September 10th, 2011

The theme of Burning Man 2011 was Rites of Passage, and many people there shared stories about life passages and transitions. The Cleu crew created a beautiful liminal space for personal rites of passage in the Starman Dome where we offered our ever-popular brainwashings to all the dusty pilgrims who made their way across Black Rock City to get a Cleu.

If you would like more people with a clue in your life, sign up for our seasonal newsletter by clicking on CleuViews. Give us your email and zipcode, so we can help you find Cleu people in your local area. More »

Thru the Cleu

August 19th, 2011

For Burningman 2011, we celebrate Rites of Passage, those magical transitions and transformations from one state of being to another. When you go through a rite of passage, you enter into sacred, liminal space where you can be reborn. Going on pilgrimage to Black Rock City is a true rite of passage, changing us inside and out as we create a city out of our collective imagination. Living together for a week gives us time to enjoy family, friends, and the ‘hood.
