This is Heartspace, in a nutshell:
I want to change the world, so I’m going to keep changing me. The most substantial change we can make in our own life is to become intentionally engaged within ourselves. In order to become intentionally engaged within ourselves, we must become aware of our Heartspace, which is the engine of personal engagement. Heartspace is also the shared experience each of us has that drives social engagement. Accessing our Heartspace personally enriches everyone socially, and that’s why we must be the change we wish to see in the world.
Our engine of personal engagement requires the fuel of sustained connections. These are the things we commit to throughout our lives, including people, ideas, experiences, and actions we experience daily, and the big things that only happen once in a lifetime. Reading, doing karate, fixing cars, making dinner, meditating, writing poetry, and dancing are all activities that can fuel our Heartspace. So are being in love, raising children, and being an active neighbor. Even running a business, public speaking, and building websites can help power up our Heartspace. The most important criteria for deciding whether something benefits your Heartspace is whether you are sustainably connected to it. Sustainability means lasting impact, healthy maintenance, and richly mutual interdependence.
