Awe is a response of inaction against fear.
Awe is an emotion which branches out from fear depending on the situation. It is fear but there is no flight or resistance. It means that you save strength by not trying to pointlessly escape or resist for those times which judging something to be a threat is a mistake.
Awe occurs when you meet an overwhelming strong force and feel that your destiny is decided regardless of your own decisions. A special feature of awe is that even though the object of awe is mightier than the object of fear there is little unpleasantness. An object of awe is also an object of respect, so awe sometimes occurs with love.
