Get a clue!

July 20th, 2017

The Cleu is a reminder of who you really are, where we all come from, and why we’re all One. To keep your inner clue strong, we encourage you to look for people with a clue and meet regularly in small groups, face-to-face. Not just to talk, eat, and enjoy each others’ company, but to gather your collective energy on behalf of your vision and values. Take some time to celebrate the human rites of music, art, dance, drum, song, and story. Revel in a direct experience of At-Onement. Build a supportive network and shared infrastructure that helps sustain you all physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The Cleu vision is that of a world in harmony, where we are At-One with the miracles we depend on: Universe, Earth, Life, Consciousness.

Explore creative and effective ways to support action on behalf of the Earth, Life, and Consciousness. Get a deeper understanding of the universal language of Science. Learn more about the scientific method, investigative journalism, and academic credibility so that you can better distinguish fact from fiction. Value truth, equality, respect and love for all life on our precious planet, a pale blue dot in an amazing Universe. Come together to empower a new paradigm of Truth, Love, and Science. Resist ignorance, injustice, and lies. Learn to prioritize better choices for Air, Water, Food, and Energy. Discover the egalitarian, creative power of the circle.

When you are ready, you could even use the religious freedom granted by the first Amendment of the Bill of Rights to turn your circle into a legal church with its own gathering place, school, garden, library, and childcare. Did you know that you can donate half your income to a church of your choice? What if your church was made up of your friends and community? You could rent a gathering place, go on a pilgrimage together, or buy a set of drums, music equipment, or art supplies for your celebrations. You could apply for faith-based federal funding for social services, engage in community development activities, or start your own church-sponsored businesses, such as bookstores, coffee shops, and retreat centers, mostly tax-exempt and free from government interference. You have more power than you realize.

Stand up for Truth, Love, Science. We’re here to help you get started. Get a clue!

Have a clue

May 31st, 2016

What does it mean to have a clue? A clew is the string that guides you on a winding path through a labyrinth. A clue guides you on your path. You have to wake up to have a clue. It is true that everyone has a clue, but not everyone wants to know. Some people deny or reject their clue. Spiritual practices such as study, service, and meditation will bring you closer to your inner clue. Take the time to practice and learn to recognize your clue.

Some people abuse their clue or accuse others of not having a clue when they themselves refuse to get a clue. Others may judge you for your clue or apparent lack thereof. If you said something ridiculously outrageously ignorant, I could say you were clueless or I could suggest that you get a clue. You may not feel like having a clue, but you should at least act like you’ve got one. I mean really!

How do we find the real clue? If you have gotten this far, it’s easy. You already know this. The answer is within. You find your very own unique universal clue within you, that part of you that knows that it knows. When Consciousness awakens inside you, the clue is you. Always & already here. You are the clue. Yes! You are the Cleu.

Circle Up!

February 11th, 2015

The Cleu represents our spiritual community, its intertwining circles a unifying symbol of our vision and values. Many people find the Cleu through word-of-mouth, have friends tell them to Get a Cleu, or may be given a Cleu pendant as a gift. Follow the clues to realize your own path, and be open to inviting others to join you on the way.

Wearing the Cleu
feels good because it connects us. Hearing someone else say, “you have a Cleu!” can be a surprising and satisfying experience. Finding others with a Cleu can be as easy as going with the flow, following the path of synchronicities to that special moment of connection. You may feel that your particular spirituality is unique, but the Cleu symbol makes it easier to recognize others who share your perspective and serves as a continual reminder that you are not alone.

Your spirit is the result of your choices. When you connect with others on the level of vision and values, your spirit grows bigger because your choices touch more people. In circle, everyone can participate and contribute for the benefit of the group as a whole as well as its members. When you come together in a circle with a common spiritual purpose, your collective spirit strengthens and empowers your choices. Circles who choose to share energy and resources for common goals multiply the effect of all the individual members. Circles thrive when members meet regularly to celebrate human rites and practices. Develop your spiritual community. The CLEU is here to help, so let us know how it goes. Circle up!

This End is a new Beginning

December 21st, 2012

As darkness becomes dawn, the longest night gives way to longer days in the return of the light. According to the ancient Mayan calendar and other prophecies, the 2012 winter solstice marks a transition, the end of a cycle, a paradigm shift from the old to the new. We are called to witness the birth of a new world.

We have come a long way, baby. We have freed ourselves from tradition and defined ourselves as individuals. The capitalist culture treats us as consumers, marketing desire and greed, spreading a mass media version of reality, a zombie shopocaplyspe. We live in a world of human-caused wonders and disasters. Global consciousness is awakening. We know that we have changed the climate, collapsing the stable conditions that have supported both civilization and biodiversity for thousands of years. The planet is warming, bees are dying, great cities are flooding, and a young man shoots down children in a massacre-suicide. We are stunned, but we must confront our shadows. We must act on behalf of our existence as a conscious species on a living planet.

Now is the time to reflect on your vision of a world you choose to live in. How will you claim your spiritual identity and live by your values? Remember that you are greater together. Look for people who have a clue. Keep in mind that everyone has a clue, but not everyone wants to know. Find people who are clue-seekers and human rites guides. Get a space where you can gather in circle weekly. Take time to celebrate and grieve, share and serve. Practice our human rites of music, art, drum, dance, song, story, and circle. Build up your community infrastructure so that you can meet the new paradigm with open arms.

Let us join together to preserve Life and affirm Consciousness on the Earth. It’s up to you, fantastic speck of stardust that you are!

You are the Cleu.

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.
