What I'm trying to get across is that Nature/God works more on consensus than top-down decision-making. As many say, "Do you not know the Holy Spirit is within you?" Yes, exactly. The Holy Spirit, Sophia or Wisdom, is within you and not just in the man on stage (or whatever puppet-master pulls his strings).
That was the original idea of Protestantism. But what happened? "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
Related to Consensus is the more advanced method of decision making called holacracy. This is defined by in Wikipedia:
The term holacracy is derived from the term holarchy, coined by Arthur Koestler Arthur Koestlerin his 1967 book The Ghost in the Machine. A holarchy is composed of holons (Greek: ...λον, holon neuter form of ...λος, holos "whole") or units that are autonomous and self-reliant, but also dependent on the greater whole of which they are part.] Thus a holarchy is a hierarchy of self- regulating holons that function both as autonomous wholes and as dependent parts.
Thus, as holons, who are we dependent upon? And who, in turn, is dependent upon us? The Earth? Mother Nature? I would take the above definition and say that we are mirrors to the whole. Thus, we are a part and, in the verb and more relational stance, we are a participant in the entire planet and universe. As such, our atoms are in the same relationship to empty space as stars and planets are to the universe.
Or, as Ramakrishna in the late 1800's said regarding his Goddess Kali:
More than Creator and Created, Mother is pure Creativity.
And, yes, That Thou Art! As Paul states in his Gospel Corinthians:
Do you not know that the Holy Spirit is within you?
