YOU are Heartspace

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka , and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.” – Black Elk

This invisible web of engagement called Heartspace depends on your existence. When you stop existing Heartspace stops existing in the way you experienced it. That is a very true reality, and it is true of every single thing that exists, that has every existed, and that will ever exist throughout the Universe.
All existence shares Heartspace, so that when one thing ceases to be engaged with another, the effect of that ending ripples throughout all existence. The opposite is true too: When we engaged with anything in existence, all things experience that existence to some effect. The measurement of these effects can only be known by the individuals involved, demonstrating the reality of the Butterfly Effect in the Principle of Engagement.
