Whether you’ve been exploring Heartspace consciously all your life or just stumbled into the understanding yesterday, Heartspace has always been present in your life, working through you, for you, and towards you. It is the ubiquitous hand of safety, compelling you towards making smart choices, just as much as its the apparently devious hand of the bad guy who did mean things to you. Heartspace is not indifferent though.
Instead, Heartspace may be the most compassionate force in all existence, as it acts with utterly perfect synchronicity and ability to ensure that your life turns out exactly how you want it- consciously or unconsciously. It can be challenging to hear that your life is exactly how you want it to be right now, and if that doesn’t sit well with you and you want to deny it, then do. Heartspace works anyway.
As you uncover the powerful possibilities of acting consciously from Heartspace, you might discover a pang of guilt, a wisp of nostalgia, or the burden of self-judgment. Knowing that this fantastically infinite force works for your benefit always, you might look back at decisions you’ve made and choices you’ve eluded, only to believe that if you’d chosen differently life would somehow be different. Let me tell you straightforwardly: Heartspace is indifferent to that.
Life never goes backwards, that is simply impossible. There is absolutely nothing you can do today that will affect yesterday. If you have amends to make to yourself or others, make those now. You must actively be humble and sincere, and you’ll know you’re operating from Heartspace because those won’t feel painful to live through. When you are done, move on. It is that simple.
Rather than concern yourself with what you could’ve done differently or how you could’ve been with other people or felt over things, simply allow those gongs to be relegated to the dustbins of history. Here’s another honesty about Heartspace, though: You can look always look forwards. You can even travel there, now. Here’s a simple exercise in Heartspace time travel:
How to engage in forgiveness
Start by making a list of challenging times in your life. You might think about crappy things others have done to you, or bad things you’ve done to others. Anyway you slice that pie, make a list. Then choose places where those things fit, work or school or family or whatever. Write a category next to each thing.
When you’re done, choose one category, an important one like work. Then write down one thing you’d like to tell yourself about working from Heartspace in the future. Maybe it’s something like, “Always treat coworkers like partners, not recipients,” or, “Always work as if this is the greatest job I will ever have- because it is.”
When you’ve created that statement of permission for the future you, visualize you at work in three months. See yourself taking a peek at this note. Watch what you do with the note, how you react to it, and whether you see when you originally wrote it.
Then, picture yourself being proud because you actually did what the note says. THAT is your Heartspace time travel, because as you’ll find out in the future, you planted that note there today. You’ll see what I’m taking about soon.
That is forgiveness and Heartspace: More than a hollow speaking of words or thinking of voodoo spells, it is tangible action right now, here. You are forgiven by you, right now. Congrats!
