    A friend of mine who has many spiritual experiences told me about an out-of-body experience he had. I have never experienced this myself, but his descriptive story just left me in awe. There is so much that we don’t know about this vast Universe. I am blessed to have him as a mentor now. I love your blog:)

    Awe is such an overwhelming feeling, which may disable you to think in a straight way because in this situation you are blinded by something. Sometimes awe may come from the fear of God. Taking everything positively is the best way to utilize this kind of mixed feeling. Very helpful article although.
