Part of feeling safe is believing that there is Someone in Charge or in Control: The great boss in the sky, who has ordered all things to make complete sense relieves us from our sense that behind it all is cold, indifferent, chaos.
But if you look at nature, you will see that control doesn’t exist. Even in a pack of wolves, no one is controlling their behavior. The force of nature or fabric of reality operates through them in the most efficient way for their survival. They get, through behavioral cues, exactly where they stand in the order of their world.
The Alpha wolf is not about controlling the pack for his own glory or to gain some psychological advantage over his peers. He is not sweating about all the things that can go wrong in the future and creating strategies to mitigate them. It is the force of nature itself that propels him to the forefront of the pack for its ultimate genetic goal: To propagate itself and not be driven into extinction.
All the rest of nature, from plants to fish to birds to insects, operate without the idea of control over anything. They just do what is appropriate to do next in the vast dance of life. They can defend their nests, swim away from predators, or sway with the wind, it is all built into their perfect systems. It is not about a big Master Controller in the Sky putting it all together according to our limited imagination.
