Each of us is the protagonist of our own life. Our goals feel like the most important thing in our world.
But every now and then, a moment of awe challenges our understanding of the world. We feel insignificant yet connected to the whole world, which helps us to step back and gain a better perspective.
Awe is an emotional response to being in the presence of something greater than yourself, and that exceeds current knowledge structures.
