Inspired by the1600's illustrations of Robert Fludd's Four Elements, I designed my own colorful version as the center of my new LunaSol Calendar. I love it so much I decided I had to rock it on a tank. Both are 25% off today only! The Earth element here is represented by coal, which is incredibly condensed plant matter whose carbon is desperately needed to stay sequestered in our earth. It's like her bone marrow!

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." Begins Lincoln's Gettysburg address as our nation wrestled with slavery. Today, indigenous, immigrant and black civil and human rights are still being fought for and attacked by the powers that be.

Original Instructions: Indigenous Teaching for a Sustainable Future is a compilation of essays from many tribes of the Americas. It illuminates that the inspiration for freedom from British rule was the free peoples who were already here along with their functioning democracy with one glaring difference: theirs proposed all PEOPLE are created equal, not just men. Likewise, the suffragette movement was also based on the indigenous women's equality and freedom. Time to listen to the wisdom of the wise ones who are luckily willing to share. This is the alternative history of the hostile takeover of the Americas. Pair this with the Toltec wisdom of the Four Agreements and learn how to walk as the real Americans do.
