Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I just read an article about awe in Psychology Today. Then I clicked on a link to Ted Talks about awe that was presented by Dr. Beau Lotto. It is truly inspiring, awesome as the way goes. He actually has some of the Cirque de Soliel people with him on the talk.
So here is the definition of awe from Dr. Dachner Keltner of the Greater Good Department at the University of California, Berkley. (I want to go back to school) "Awe is the feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends your understanding of the world." What inspires awe is usually in nature (get off of the screen and outside) art (get your hands dirty) and impressive individual feats, acts of great skills or virtue. All of these attributes, that inspire awe, have been studied, and the results are that we become more social, more collaborative and concerned with the needs of others. This is called creating a social identity. When we help someone in need, we feel less entitled and self-important. When we learn to step into uncertainty, a state of awe, we become more innovated and we can find the key to creativity. When we unchain our perception from the narrow (past or future) uncertainty reduces the need for control and closure. We become risk takers. We are able to have a conversation about a subject and be open to all points of view. This activity lowers the inflammatory response. As Joseph Campbell stated, "Awe is what moves us forward".
