Heartspace is really a very simple concept which anyone can understand.
Heartspace is something that simply exists that you can rely on. In the same way we all unconsciously rely on oxygen for breathing, I suggest we all unconsciously rely on Heartspace for engagement. Just as learning how to consciously breath can improve your health and happiness, learning to consciously engage in the worlds within and around you can change your life, too. The consequences are infinite.
Because of this, it is easy to understand that Heartspace is not an ideology and there is no system to follow or pathway to understand. There is nothing here to believe, receive, affirm, or uplift. There is nowhere to go, nothing to evolve towards, or anything to become. There is nothing to do, achieve, or get. Heartspace is already within you and around you, all the time, right now. Personal, community, and universal engagement don’t require that you do anything. There is nothing to do. They simply are.
If you are concerned about the world, focus on personal engagement within yourself. If you are concerned with yourself, focus on community engagement. If you are concerned about all existence, you can focus on universal engagement. With everything serving as mirrors of our interiors, there truly is nothing to “fix” that is outside ourselves. However, if you are determined to do that work, then by all means do it.
Life is itself the lasting connection to creating, sustaining, and enlivening lasting connections. It is amazing for that simplicity, and Heartspace allows us to understand that amazing simplicity.
Lao Tzu taught, “A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is no intent on arriving.” This is Heartspace.
