If you share your money nothing will be left, but if you share your happiness it will multiply.
Life is energy
. We are people
of living energy. Living means our energy looks for a path that suits
her. In other words: our energy moves but always in a different
direction. If you fail to be in contact with your self you can't
possibly feel where your energy wants to go, your life will be without
direction. Someone wanting to feel but not able to will ultimately feel
isolated. This is the core of our societies fear.
Afraid of searching
people don't dare to admit that they can't find their selves (supposing
this is easy), afraid of what others will say. They hide their
incapabilities by stating that their energy should listen to them
instead of the other way around. Fortunately(?!) for them most other
people think the same way, for the same reason of course.
A goal is like a straightjacket
That's why people set goals for themselves. Apart from the fact that
such a person doesn't listen to his or her energy by setting a goal
(s)he forces his or her energy into a straightjacket thus prohibiting
his or her energy to flow where it wants. Inevitably this will result
in problems because that energy wants to follow a different path.
Control is their answer. This kind of fear is omnipresent in our
Our new world
. We believe that
our energy by it's very nature wants to flow in the direction of a
beautiful world. It is this world that we want to create by freeying
and bundling our energy. Free energy is the essence of real freedom.
Our new economy
. You are what
you do, so we don't want Cirque l'Inspiration to be just a set of ideas
but instead conrete action. We believe our economic interactions are a
mirror of our spirit. For this reason we want to form an economy of
care and cooperation.
You are Cirque l'Inspiration. If you want that. The essence of Cirque l'Inspiration is our energy.
Many of us direct their energy to achieve their goals. The crux of Cirque l'Inspiration is that we ask our energy:
"Energy, where do you want to go?"
To understand whether the answer we observe is correct we use purity as criterion:
"Is this correct? Does this really make my energy flow?"
This is easier said than done. For example: it took me 10 years before
the red Porsches disappeared from my dreams that prevented me from
seeing what really suits me.
Therefore Cirque l'Inspiration consists of two mutually inspiring streams:
(A) We represent our dreams as jigsaw pieces
Each of us imagines his or her dreams and we ask our selves whether
these dreams really suit us. Take care! Dreams that don't actually suit
you will be exposed at the same time both without any settlement and in
love. We will represent each dream in the form of a jigsaw piece (not
(B) We join our dreams like jigsaw pieces
While representing our dreams we join the jigsaw pieces together.
Looking for spaces to fit your jigsaw pieces into feeds your dreams.
The jigsaw pieces together form the Big Picture.
The idea behind Cirque l'Inspiration is quite simple: some of us dream
of a new world. Together we can realise that world. We don't need
everybody to join, we need enough people. The point is to find each
other and to work together. Thus we will form a critical mass capable
of realising this new world. By world we don't mean the geographical
world inhabited by 6 billion people but the union of all the people
materialising this new world. The two streams help us to realise this
Cirque l'Inspiration is like a dynamic jigsaw puzzle. Each dream is a
jigsaw piece in that puzzle. To lay the puzzle we need to discover (A)
the jigsaw pieces and (B) the puzzle, the reality they form together.
That reality is being discovered and formed and evolves while we are
going there. Our dreams evolve likewise thus better suiting our selves
and fitting into the dynamic reality. The junction of our dreams makes
this reality into a canal for our energy.
The two streams interact to inspire us. Looking at the puzzle being
formed we gradually discover on the one hand how to meaningfully fit
our dreams in and on the other hand which jigsaw pieces are needed.
This is the balance between the questions "What can I add?" and "What
21 december 2005: the first Cirque l'Inspiration
The first Cirque l'Inspiration took place at 21 december 2005. These were our plans before we started:
During this first Cirque l'Inspiration we work together in the two
streams. Several workshops will create the space where we can represent
our dreams and fit them together.
There is no fixed program yet. We want to make this first Cirque
l'Inspiration together with you, so please submit your suggestions. We
already have the following (in dutch)
If you want to prepare yourself the best you can do is to relax and
forget about everything that you still have to do. Listen to your heart
and enjoy what comes up.
End of the announcement, this is what really happened:
We were with 11 people and we cirqueled between 14:30 and 21:30 with a
large self made dinner round 6 o'clock. The following attracted my
Unlike we are used to Caroline and I didn't really make any plans in
order to execute these under our control. Instead we listened to our
intuition and asked ourselves whether what we did was pure - in the end
we didn't do much more than just bringing up this site and notify some
people we thought might be interested. That was somewhat scary because
nothing works out well of it's own accord, right? We learned that if we
listen to out intuition and tune into purity everything works out well
of it's own accord.
By explaining on this site in simple terms what we wanted automatically the right people joined.
To the participants the cirque in the first place was an encounter with
people who, just like themselves, want to be led by purity.
This first Cirque ended up being a thorough introduction round. The
first part "What makes your energy flow?" consisted in turn of two
parts. During the first half an hour the participants in silence
created an image (be it in writing, painting or an object) of what
makes their energy flow. Using these images each of the participants
introduced themselves by explaining what makes their respective
energies flow. This introductory round took all afternoon until dinner.
After cooking and eating we answered the question "What do you need to
make your energy flow?"
It was clear that we want to go on and so we decided to reconvene in the beginning of spring.
The next Cirque l'Inspiration
We want to organise another Cirque l'Inspiration for all those people
who weren't able to attend the first time. If you are interested aswell
please call or write to:
If you want to organise a Cirque l'Inspiration yourself please tell us
your experiences. We collect the experiences here to serve everybody.
