Earth is a Spinning Top...
The earth can be seen as a rotating hunk of rock, water and ice populated with an abundance of life forms. This view catagorizes things; Rocks are dead things, ever unchanging; All living things were put here by someone or something, and we the pinical of that life, with our consciousness, are special, part of a mysterious uber-plan, a plan to be revealed to us by a higher consciousness, a teacher, or parent type figure. Some wait fearfully for judgement day, or 'for when your father gets home'.
What if that uber-plan was just the on-going functioning of things that we are experiencing? Perhaps the lesson the universe is trying to teach us is that we are one, that we are connected to the life breath of the entire universe, our consciousness of this, mearly the next step in the evolution of the stars.
As much as we'd wish it wasn't true, we're all alone in this universe, with only the laws of nature to support us. Like a kid leaving home, only their faith in community - taught them by thier community - to guide them.
