At the beginning of "Love Calls Us to the Things of This World," the soul is in awe of the spirit world. Okay, nothing unusual at all about that; there are centuries of historical and religious art devoted to awe of the awesome. But eventually the awe shifts focus to the common, the flawed, and the human. Now that's something different. Wilbur wants to show us that there is plenty to be in awe of right under our noses. You know, all that stuff we usually pass by without giving a single thought? It's as if he's shaking us to say, open your eyes or you're going to miss your whole beautiful life.
The awe of the speaker isn't genuine; it's fake and sarcastic. The speaker loathes the human world and everything about it. He's being ironic. Duh.
The speaker isn't in awe of just the spiritual world, or just the human world. He's in awe of how they're connected.
