Vastness expands our worldview and shrinks our ego and gives us a feeling of โ€œsmall selfโ€โ€”in a good way. Awe stirs a greater sense of oneness with others and can open a greater identification with our divine and eternal Self for the spiritually minded. Awe reminds us that we are part of a much deeper intelligence and reminds us of the insignificance of our worries. Awe keeps our egos in check. Awe helps us to move through sadness with gratitude and acceptance.
— An excerpt on โ€œAweโ€ from the Radiant Life Ayurveda newsletter

Hereโ€™s a mental shift that might help: when youโ€™re feeling hurt, sad, angry, overburdenedโ€ฆthink of it not as a problem, but as an experience.ย Fully feel whatever pain or sadness or anger youโ€™re feeling.ย Stop avoiding it and just feel it. Truly allow yourself to feel it. And as you feel it, donโ€™t think of the difficult feeling as a problem you need to solve. A thing you need to get rid of. Think of it as an experience youโ€™re having.ย Itโ€™s not a problem, itโ€™s an experience.
— Leo Babauta
