A very good example of the psychology of the planetary scale human being, in the service of the totality of humanity and the planet is Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983). A comprehensive anticipatory design scientist.
Of course peace of mind , planetary prosperity and happiness comes also when we feel that we accomplish gradually our true goals. And there minor and major goals in life. We might say that our existence has no other goal than to exist. Or that we may have many different goals, according to the scale of relevance in our existence. But one of the most beautiful and meaningful goals in life is to develop more of our soul consciousness. So all other minor goals like social success, money, fame, knowledge , creativity etc are to serve this major goal of developing more of our soul consciousness
Maybe the 21st century with the advance of the internet gives, the opportunity that such a new synthetic science , can be developed collectively in the internet, transcending the limitations of traditional institutions, politicians, and bankers.
What the little individual can do, that cannot be done by large nations, governments , financial institutions, and large enterprises? And in what the little individual would of greater virtue and value, to be helped by the invisible cosmic powers of nature and cosmic evolution, for a prosperous life on the planet in harmony with the universe?
Always the answer was hitting clear to his mind:
Truth, integrity, humility, good intentions for planetary and cosmic scale prosperity, and genuinely spontaneous inspired innovations, are some of the virtues and qualities of the little individual that the previous larger entities do not have in this civilization contingency. For this reason the hopes of the Planet's prosperity and cosmic evolution are higher towards the little individual.
And when we speak of the integrity of the individual , we speak of that which life has taught the individual by direct experience, expressed with honesty and truth.

Quotes by Buckminster Fuller in his book
Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth (1963)
One of my working assumptions which has been proven successful so often as seemingly to qualify it as a reliable tenet is that A problem adequately stated is a problem solved theoretically and immediately, and therefore subsequently to be solved, realistically. Others have probably stated the principle in many ways. The assumption is that the inevitability of a solution's realization is inherent in the interaction of human intellect and the constantly transformative evolution of physical universe. At first the, only subconsciously apprehended, approaching confluences of complex events make themselves known intuitively within the intellectual weather. Then comes a gradually awakening consciousness of the presence of new families of differentiating-out challenging concepts of every day prominence. It is with these randomly patterning families of separate concepts that evolution is about to deal integratively. As a now specific unitary problem it may be disposed of effectively when and if that unified problem becomes "adequately stated" and thereby comprehensibly solvable.
