The Sweet Waters
In mythology, the sweet waters are associated with the fresh waters of the Earth and with the sweet breast milk of the Great Mother. Osun, an orisha (deity) of Nigeria’s Yoruba people, is associated with water, fertility, sensuality, and love, and also with the color yellow, honey, and bees. Osun is a great Mother Goddess who brings balance to Earth and to humanity, and she’s also referred to as the mother of the orphans.
In Italy’s Villa D’Este in Tivoli, near Rome, there’s a famous fountain called the Fountain of Diana of Ephesus, or the Fountain of Mother Nature. It features a sculpture of the Roman Goddess Diana as Mother Nature, with multiple breasts out of which flow sweet, fresh waters.
We know that we need fresh water to survive, and yet we’ve not been protecting and appreciating the very thing that sustains us. When the waters are clean and protected, Life is in balance and the world is fertile.
