Comfort Zone - Community Newsletter - Issue #9
Mar 20, 2022 5:53 pm
Welcome to our Community Sharings!
We invite you to help it grow from the inside out!
We are once again celebrating the amazing creative talent that we have within our community. If you have any poems, songs, photography, art work, or any other words or images that depict your particular creative genius, reply to this email at email@example.com & we'll happily include your work in a future issue..
PLEASE NOTE: BNL is having challenges with our email for the newsletter but think it will be fixed by the next edition so we are going to continue to post this email address (with high hopes) & if you sent something in for this edition, we will feature it - bold it - glitterize it - whatever in the next edition!!
I hope this may give some comfort to people who need it. There are good, caring people (whether outside or within yourself, if need be) and you do deserve to be cared for and supported as much as anyone else does."
― Laurie Matthew, Fight! Rabbit! Fight!
To Our Beloved Brave New Life Community!
On the other end of the rabbit hole (if you don’t get lost in the labyrinth of conspiratorial confusion), is the complete surrender of absolutist thinking & the humble acceptance of endless, eternal mystery.

A new Course in Syntropy and Human Ecology is positioned for the beginning of April. It will be four weeks online in a zoom environment with presentations covering the principles and practices of Syntropic Agroforestry and the Life strategies that Nature (including our human nature) operates on. Email Souvereign if you are interested.
Please mark this date on our calendars! Even if we can't attend a planned event, we can all go out & pet a stream or river or at least join with our sisters & brothers around the world & say prayers
for the lifeblood of our beloved planet & our Selves: WATER!
I want to learn how to speak to anyone at any time and make us both feel a little bit better, lighter, richer, with no commitments of ever meeting again. I want to learn how to stand wherever with whoever and still feel stable. I want to learn how to unlock the locks to our minds, my mind, so that when I hear opinions or views that don’t match up with mine, I can still listen and understand. I want to burn up lifeless habits of following maps and to-do lists, concentrated liquids to burn my mind and throat
and I want to go back to the way nature shaped me. I want to learn to go on well with whatever I have in my hands at the moment
in a natural state of mind,
certain like the sea.
I will find comfort in the rhythm of the sea.”
― Charlotte Eriksson
One of our favorite things to highlight is the artwork of our members. Here is a artisan postcard from AIO!

Here is a link to a favorite song from Vonn (& one of mine as well) as she shared in her New Earth Day 591 post: ; It’s in every one of us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qiGXyYOR3o
Vonn adds: "...another reminder that whatever we ask for, the seed of it is already within us."

Here is information on another new BNL community circle:
DEAR Brave New Life-ers
This new circle is created to provide extra support in addition to the community calls. It will have a little different format and focus.
FREEDOM SUPPORT CIRCLE
We are a peer group offering a safe space to express complicated feelings concerning challenges related to the Plandemic.
Support is accomplished through the profound act of our sharing and listening.
As we loosely follow concepts of a 12-Step Program, we may focus our sharing on topics broadly related to addiction: emotional, substance, reactive, personal and cultural. Surrendering our will to the greater cosmic purpose, this circle will shape its own structure and future as a new paradigm evolves and manifests in the brave new life.
The meeting will begin with a 6 minute meditation, so please arrive on time!
Find more info and the ZOOM LINK on the circle page. Hope to see you there.
Feel free to email me with questions/concerns: email@example.com
If there are any other Brave New Life circles who wish to be on this list, please send us an email & we will gladly add it in.
Also check out the fabulous videos being offered on the Brave New Life site - they run the gamut from interestingly bizarre to bizarrely interesting.
“Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.”
― James Herriot, James Herriot's Cat Stories
There was this time I was meant to perform in front of about 1000 people. I had to memorize a lot of text (not at all my strong suit). I was well-rehearsed. It was time. I got to the stage early. What has always given me greater comfort is to walk the space. Live in the space for a time. Breathe it. Get comfortable with it. It is a soothing practice.
It just so happened that a man in a wheelchair had been brought in early and he was positioned right next to the stage. He must have seen the fact that my lips were so white they blended into my face.
He waved me over to him and as I bent down to listen, he said “Don’t worry. Just get the butterflies to fly in formation.” Brilliant! It works.
I’ve shared that visual with my clients when I coach them. This piece of artwork was sent to me by a client. You go right to your comfort zone when you just let the butterflies fly in formation!
Thank you to Martha Gelnaw for this submission.
