Is it Time to Look at the Stars?

Recent research seems to suggest that if you experience a sense of awe it can prompt you into altruistic behaviour - helping or giving to others for no reward (Go to Awe May Promote Altruism to find out more).

The idea seems to be that if you experience a diminished sense of your own self importance your attention then moves away from your individual needs towards contributing to the Greater Good.

So if you don't want to be altruistic it may be more sensible to keep your eyes firmly fixed on your boots. But if you want to engage in some altruistic acts it's time to start star-gazing.
