Awe: The Delights and Dangers of Our Eleventh
book is filled with proof and justification using philosophy,
religion, politics, sociology, neuroscience, mythology, and psychology,
that awe is, indeed, a primary emotion that we do not know enough
about, and thus, do not know how to experience to its fullest
- Is awe a message from a higher power that enlightens us about
“what it all means” or is it simply a physiological
response that comes and goes?
- What do our leaders know about awe that enables them to use
it against us?
- How do religion and politics and even the current media trends
depend on awe and its emotional impact on us?
- Can awe be a healthy or hurtful emotion, and what happens
when awe falls into the wrong hands?
Just as Eckhart Tolle delved into the mystery of living in the
moment in The Power of Now, Dr. Pearsall teaches that “the
moment” – whether tragic or triumphant - is only worth
living “in” if we are willing and able to be in awe
