"...life is a gift. The world and everything in it is a gift. We did not earn our lives. We did not earn the sun; it is not thanks to our hard efforts that it shines. We did not earn the ability of plants to grow. We did not earn water. We did not earn our conception nor our breath. Our hearts beat and our livers metabolize all on their own. Life is a gift." - Charles Eisenstein
The Earth is a Gift; she is abundant and provides everything we need. When her gifts are kept in motion, not wasted or hoarded by those who claim them as their own, they have the power to find where they need to go, to find those who are in most need.
When Earth's gifts are laid down as capital, it creates scarcity and lack; therefore, her gifts must always be kept in motion.
The gift is a powerful interrupter of our understanding of capital and material possessions. It challenges the current economic model that allows six people to 'own' 99.9% of the Earth's resources/gifts, creating scarcity and lack for 99% of the inhabitants of this glorious planet.
