...are we all waiting for this second self to arise, when shards of skin fall to your feet, when your soul is finally free...we all cry for release, except the earthly methods we use are either momentary --sky diving, bungee jumping, snowboarding--or paralyzing--drugs---searching for "highs" within the terrestrial never quite worked out well, our body tells us to put it to rest

Why do you think people participate in such activities that give them a temporary high? Maybe their lives are so dull that they search for ways to spice up their lives? Of course there are people who do those kind of activities because out of pure enjoyment. But what happens after the high? Do they keep searching for things that give them that same feeling? What happens when they develop a tolerance for those activities and they run out of ideas? Such a sad life when one's purpose is to reach that level of high. =/

I agree...a lot of us search for ways to "escape" ourselves, yes because of a dull life. You are right that of course ppl do it for enjoyment too but a lot of ppl seek that thrill somewhere because they are not satisfied within themselves, the media tells us we are not good enough as we are. But yes searching constantly for that high will bring you no good, cuz one will never find it. We need to be that "high" that we are seeking for. Thanks for commenting! Such thought-provoking comments =)
