In the past few weeks one man died from the famous Running of the Bulls in Pamplona and more recently, a young surfer died in Los Angeles when twenty foot waves threw him onto the rocks.  So why do we keep seeing so many people, mostly young people, seeking thrills in these dangerous ways?  The answer is that they feel something missing from their day-to-day materialistic lives and, without knowing what it is, are trying to find a way to fill that need.   
    Of course, what is missing from their lives is something beyond the simple, materialistic, animal existence.  What is missing is their spiritual lives.  Unfortunately, most people today place so little emphasis on the spiritual side of life that it is understandable that so many turn to wacky ideas like thrill seeking to satisfy it.  So if you are a person who is developing spiritually, and you know folks like these thrill seekers, try to awaken them to their spiritual needs and help prevent needless death.
