We are wired up for self-interest. No question. But we are also wired up for cooperation. What moves us from focusing solely on our incomplete selves and into a greater understanding of community is an experience of awe, an experience of reverence. Sometimes we feel this when we are walking through a magnificent forest or mountain range or looking up at night into a space with no light pollution so we can bask in the glory of the galaxy. Sometimes we feel this when we are in the company of people we greatly respect or at the birth of our children. Sometimes we feel this when listening to music or watching a performance. Our minds have quieted for a moment and we are not afraid that the self is not enough, indeed we have lost the self and we have connected with the collective, with something greater than us. It is not that we are small, it is that we are expansive. We have spaciousness. Awe quiets the selfish, fearful mind. Awe is the transcending of the self. And awe is all around us, but we can’t often see it because we think this moment is not enough. Happiness is finding ourselves complete in this moment.
