The Real Work

Will I ever really know what I want to be when I grow up? After months of studying, journaling, reading, listening, facebooking with fellow students of Hello Soul Hello Business, I still feel lost. I want so much for my work, my art, my stories, my teachings, to inspire people, to be a door for others to experience that Deep Joy which pours out of me lately. My mission/vision statement is: "I will awaken Deep Joy in other hearts, in the hearts of everyone I am in contact with, through my images, my stories, my teaching, and every interaction." But How? How do my scarves, my paintings,  my book Atom's Monster, and my love of dragons all tie in to that?
The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

The impeded stream is the one that sings.
