Question #6: What Makes You Feel Alive?

Welcome back to 21 questions that will change your life.

Question #6 is about the things you can’t live without. Most of us can live without actual materials things, but there are “things” we cannot live without. A bird cannot live without flying and a fish cannot live without swimming. These things are so much a part of who they are that their life is inextricably linked.

Question #6: What is something you have to do, because if you don’t your soul will start to die?

Musicians say they cannot live without music. Artists say they cannot live without art. Parents say they cannot live without their children. Inventors say they cannot live without the chance to invent again. My grandmother said she couldn’t live without her garden. Some can’t live without golf. Many of the saints could not live without prayer, reflection, silence, and solitude. And none of us can live without God. It is in Him that we live and move and have our being.

What do you need that you don’t have? What is it that you cannot live without? In what way is your soul withering and dying? And what can you do about it?
