The Difference Between Awe And Fear

281.01Question: What is the difference between awe and fear?

Answer: Awe is caution, distance, the feeling of something unclear, maybe not very conscious, threatening something, somehow, but not yet defined. It’s like twilight states. Such anxiety happens to many, and sometimes it is difficult to say for what reason, why, and for what.

Fear, however, is already an absolutely clear, concrete feeling in a person: what I am afraid of, why, in what circumstances I can experience it, how I can avoid it, and so on.

Question: Does awe mainly relate to spiritual states?

Answer: This can be attributed to both spiritual and people’s ordinary states.
