Really think hard: if you are really serious about looking for that one thing that will complete you, give you true joy, you need to also consider the possibility that you might find what you are looking for in having God in your life. Considering all possibilities when you are solving a problem is simply a logical and intelligent thing to do. Don't cross out God because you think it is irrational or unscientific. A truly searching and scientific mind does not have any bias. Looking for what truly fulfills you is a very logical and rational activity and that means including that ONE possibility.

"Anima Christi" or "Soul of Christ" is a very old prayer about the saving power of the suffering and passion of Jesus Christ. If you have explored all options, tried everything but still feel that something is missing in your life, wouldn't it be smart to consider that what might help lies in Anima Christi? Call, email, or even drop a note - just for a conversation, ask a few questions, and see. We would do the same when looking for a house, making decisions about our health, buying a car. Using our reason is very much involved when we want to know why everything else we have been doing does not take away the sense that we are missing something in our lives.
Please email us if you have any questions. Take each step at a time, at your own pace. Wanting to know more about God, about big questions about life, depends on you, but researching always helps in giving you better information. If you are considering the possibility that including God in your life might help you get a better sense of what life is all about, please send us a note.
