Spiritual growth is facilitated in part by awe. We feel awe when we experience something larger than ourselves, something so grand in design that it defies explanation. Visiting and witnessing awe-inspiring places and things is like getting a shot of spiritual caffeine. There is nothing like marveling at something to remind us of the power of nature, the divine, and ourselves.
Experiencing wonder helps you feel awe. Here are ten of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. We highly recommend seeing some or all of these to reconnect to the spirit of things.
