Sustaining Heartspace

The best way to sustain Heartspace is through creation.

Within each of us Heartspace is waiting to show us a clear, positive, and meaningful pathway to live our lives. Heartspace is absolute: It is who we are, in the deepest and most sincere way. Each of us is meant to be deeply and sustainably connected to things within and outside of ourselves throughout our entire lives- that’s why Heartspace exists, to power that purpose. And I know that YOU are engaged in a way that is changing the world right now, and that is sustaining Heartspace.

Passionate, caring, and always hopeful, Heartspace can always guide every step of our day. More than our dreams, it knows the reality of our very being even when we do not. Heartspace is part of us, but not all of us; we are part of it, but not all of it. It goes beyond us and out into the world, touching every single person individually, while connecting us all, every single person on Earth, on a gentle, firm wave that we can ride anytime we want! 
Want to sustain that feeling?
You may not feel like a creative person, but don’t worry – breathing is creation! Every time we breathe in oxygen, we create carbon dioxide. While its not useful for us, the trees surrounding us rely on it as they create oxygen in turn. So take comfort knowing everyone of us is a creator. 
Maya Angelou once said,

“We are all creative, but by the time we are three of four years old, someone has knocked the creativity out of us. Some people shut up the kids who start to tell stories. Kids dance in their cribs, but someone will insist they sit still. By the time the creative people are ten or twelve, they want to be like everyone else.”

After learning about Heartspace you decided that you want to explore it. After exploring it, you know you want to live in it. That is why you must sustain the conscious connection you have to Heartspace. Oh, don’t worry- Heartspace is always there, whether or not you acknowledge it. Sometimes we neglect to connect to ourselves and others, but that doesn’t mean Heartspace is going away.

The awesome part about Heartspace is that when you are willing to be engaged and connected to something within and outside of yourself, connections will appear before you start looking for them. Creating things- whether personal connections or poetry or babies or carbon monoxide- is a surefire way for Heartspace to make itself obvious to you, and to sustain Heartspace through all of your days and ways.

Heartspace is creation: What you are creating is personal engagement in action; what you have created is social engagement made visible.

What are you creating in your life today?
