about

« Water is the vital principle and the base of development in Mesoamerican cultures. The element was so important and appreciated, that many divinities were attributed to the element. Tlaloc or Chalchiutlicue, in the center of Mexico, or Chac in the Maya culture. The cult of water divinitys was an essential part of life on pre-columbian times. The agriculture was the main support of the cultures in ancient Mesoamerica.
The corn and other cultures depended on the rain season, It was a symbolic meaning of life when the celestial water fell down and fecund the earth.
The excess of water or a dry season could be disastrous, powerful empires fell down. As a distant warning we most give importance to this vital element, because it was, it is and it will be the base of life on earth. The modern world gives no importance to the element “we take it for granted” but it is necessary to be aware of the importance of the element, if we don’t, the modern civilization will fall and also life on earth. I hope the great spirit, In tloque nahuaque, Ipalnemohuani, Ometeotzin, will give us the awareness to help the earth to return to primordial equilibrium.
