Mental Health: Cultivate Awe
The dots of light we see in the sky are all light-years from Earth. That knowledge when we look up at the night sky produces something in us called awe. Awe is something we want to cultivate and establish in our psyche as we progress through our lives, especially when we begin to feel the weight of responsibility weighing us down.
Awe sharpens the brain, makes a person feel more satisfied with life, decreases the need for materialistic fulfilment, produces a feeling of humility and gives that feeling of being more aligned and connected to something greater than the self - a Higher Power.
Awe is a spiritual experience and nurtures the soul in much the same way as prayer, meditation and yoga. So take yourself on an awe-inspiring journey through life to complement your yoga practice by learning one awe-inspiring fact every day or even buying yourself a portable telescope.
