The Feeling of Awe

The Feeling of Awe

  • Awe is a feeling of reverential respect, fear and wonder when we look at something vast, like the Grand Canyon, or a clear sky sprinkled with stars.
  • When something makes us feel a tiny part of a massive universe around us, we bow down and are transformed.
  • The feeling of being a tiny speck serves as a way to humble us, making us kinder and more generous.
