Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3 verse 21: Whatever a great man does, so do the rest;  Whatever standards he sets, the world follows that.


Divine intelligence working towards a cosmic purpose lights the path forward, drawing those with incomplete knowledge. Perform actions according to the high standards exemplified by a 'great man' [eg, Janaka (3.20)]: serve others' desires, infuse Brahma the Creator into actions, attain the Supreme (3.19), spread the Divine light of right action, and inspire others to act likewise. We're all great men.
