It's common to hear people say they believe in a bigger story. But the bigger story seems to be more influenced/damaged by the Post Modern idea of individualism and the dysfunctional social/political contracts it fosters, than the other way around. It seems to leave us simply saying we believe and then going about our lives living like we don't.
The Post Modern mind is in need of a disruption in order to allow something wholly other to slip in. For myself, the quiet of Nature and what is spoken there just happens to provide the disruption I need. For you it might be something else.
