OK, First of all the earth/planet we live on is a living organism and we are totally dependent on that organism. We as humans becoming - do not remember/know our true purpose - it has been hidden from us for thousands of years for a variety of reasons.
It is so important that we live in fear because living in fear stops us from recognising our true worth which is magnificent indeed.
We are on the edge of one of the greatest changes mankind have ever confronted and many higher beings are so very excited by this though they know that this will be a very tumultuous time for us.
Every single soul will survive the great changes that are coming very soon but they won't all survive in forms that they will recognise it will all be down to the individual and his/her ability to understand what is happening right now in this our time.
We stand on the precipice and will either fail or succeed and the knowledge that has always been held from us will be crucial to mankind as changes come about that most won't believe or understand.
Everyone knows in their heart that something is nearing where ever you come from or what ever you believe and each will be given the information/knowledge they require in keeping with their individual evolvement and understanding.
Manking has this one and only final chance to escape their enslavement and co create together as one. The collective conscience is vital to our survival and I'm afraid time is of the essence.

Age old delima..."some people live to work" others "work to live"
same as survival....some survive to live "me" others live to just survive...I prefer really living....
it's a state of mind...not all doom and gloom.

I'm not trying to irritate you, or embody a bunch of stereotypes about the kind of person who would disagree with you. But....
First, you mention "communicate with our environment." I'm not sure what you mean by that. What does the grass in a field have to communicate about. From what we know, grass has no direct sensory input. It isn't self-aware; so how could it even begin to communicate with me or I with it? Notice, I am NOT saying it has no value---I'm simply questioning the goal of communicating with what you perceive as an organism (the environment) but which is really not a unit or a community, regardless of human doctrine or propaganda. The environment, and the way various organisms interact, is a lot more like the marketplace---individuals interact, but not on equal terms and not always for their mutual benefit: some individuals get eaten.
Second, you mention the idea of coming together and building community. The problem I have with that is that when primates build community, there is an inevitably a dominance hierarchy built in, despite lip-service to democratic an inclusive ideals. Even within a community built on love, the interests of some members are paramount.
And that's true in every human community, because it's a trait of primates. Even Buddhist societies embody a very rigid caste system, with a large peasant class working "for" the interests of the few---the elite. Same with soviet communism, same with cults and sects through out history. The beautiful people always seek their own advantage, and the wealthy, or at least those who decide the allocation of resources, are only too happy to give it to them.
What I mean by all this is, competition is caused by scarcity. And the people who end up in a position of authority can never resist the urge to use their power preferentially. Even in a convent, its always the cute nuns that get asked to sing a solo in choir.

Man is pre-conditioned with survival mechanisms. Why?

My next question is a VERY important question. It is one that is strongly related to peace. How? How is peace possible when the drive to survive is present?
