Who is my business in service to?

Deana bought one of my scarves
I've been doing a lot of thinking and journaling about my "who": who do I want to work with? who do I want to be around? who is the customer I want to work with? And I'm having a bit of a conflict. If I draw to me people as customers who I enjoy being around, that would be creative, fun people with integrity, compassion, an appreciation for beauty.

In truth, this does seem to  describe the people who buy my hand painted silk scarves. But what do they need? They seem to have it all together.

I have a strong desire for my art to be of service, to reach deep into people's pain and sorrow and do a healing.  I want my art to lift people up and to connect them with the Source of All Joy. However, I have been told-- and part of me believes--that art is a only luxury, for people who can "afford" it. 

That perception, that art is a luxury,  is in direct conflict with my desire to be of real service to people who are hurting.

The truth is that we are all in service to Divine Source. Since we are expressions of the Divine Source, that's where guidance, wisdom, truth, love, and the ability to act comes from.
