Water Of Life? Mother worshiping

On the advise of Ea ”Enki ”Ha_ya”, takes water from the “mouth of the twin rivers”
Mouth of the Twin Rivers = Mount Ararat. (Euphrates and Tigris?)

It has been suggested that etymologically Ea comes from the term *hyy (life), referring to Enki’s waters as life giving. He was the deity of crafts mischief; water, seawater, lake-water

Aya (Haya), the mother goddess
Aya (in Armenian language aya means great grandmother) was the mother of chastity, as well as the benefactress of the whole human race.

Through her the Armenian land exists, from her it draws its life; she is the glory of our nation and its protectress, and for her the ancient Armenians felt intense love and adoration. One of her symbols is water…

In ancient times the Armenians felt a certain veneration towards water in motion, which they fear to pollute. Many rivers and springs were sacred, and endowed with beneficent virtues.

The sources of the Euphrates and Tigris received and still receive worship. Sacred cities were built around the river Araxes and its tributaries. Even now there are many sacred springs with healing power, usually called “the springs of light”.

Aya is Mother Earth, Great Grandmother who in time transformed into Haya.

Some people don’t want to accept it because they think it will return us to matriarchy and the women will rule the men but the case is that it had nothing to do with matriarchy but it had a lot to do with mother worshiping.

The symbol of eye is pure feminine symbol which was worshiped by the men too. Eye in Armenian means akn.

Originally, akn (that famous eye) was the symbol of female organ which gives the birth (a kid, a new life) like ankh (ankh – kyankh (life in Armenian) was the symbol of life for the Egyptians or the so-called fish symbol for the early Christians, they were all mother worshipers.

The symbol of eye has more ancient roots: it symbolizes the birth origin, feminine derivation and principle.

In Armenian language AK(N) can be translated as a wellspring (Ակնաղբյուր), eye and it’s connected with the source (աղբյուր, սկզբնաղբյուր, ակունք, սկզբնապատճառ, սկիզբ, ակնաղբյուր), headwaters (ակունք, սկիզբ, ջրի մակերեվույթ), outfall (ակունք, գետաբերան, սկիզբ), outflow (ակունք, արտահոսում, սկիզբ).

Anything connected with a DOT IN A CIRCLE is AKN in Armenian: AK(N) of a mill, a hive, a toner, a cart (Ջրաղացի ակն, Փեթակի ակն, Թոնրի ակն, սայլի ակն) and so on….
AK(N) is a part of both the Sun (AregaAk) and the Moon (LusneAk), (ԱրեգԱկ, ԼուսնեԱկ)…

In Armenian we have a number of sayings with AKN.

Some nomadic tribes who conquered the Armenian highland and took almost everything, changed the meaning of Aya, made it dominant matriarchal and started using according to their way of thinking: mainly as an erotic source.

But the Armenians who have always had respect towards their women, daughters always worship their mothers. They believed that the Mother is the beacon of light, of family. And they have worshiped their mothers who give life to them and their wives who give life to their children.

That was the part of holy laws originated in the Armenian highland and have been the part of Armenian heritage.
The letter H is very important for the Armenians, it’s the sound which comes from the lungs when you breathe in or breathe out.

I think Aya became Haya with the first breathe, the transformation of the nature into a human being.

And in the Mud Glittered Nuggets of Gold (May 20, 2009)

People fail to engage and meet the proper way.

Jesus is sitting by a well at noon in a village of Samaria.

It is hot and Jesus has sent his disciples to purchase food. Jesus could have helped himself of water but he preferred to wait for a woman to show up to the well.

Jesus knows the customs of the land; only women who are banished from the village dare come to the well and they come around noon, after all the “good” women have filled their jar in the early morning and also at sun down. 

Jesus has something to say to women coming at noon to the well.  Before proselytizing, Jesus ask for a favor, a drink of water, a favor easy to offer but means a lot to a thirsty man.

The Samaritan woman gives Jesus water and then Jesus can tender the “water of life”.  If you want people to listen to you, you first have to ask a favor to be at a par, to demonstrate that you mean to listen to them, to understand them, to be part of them before you communicate your share of thoughts.

People fail to engage and meet the proper way.

People slave to becoming independent and self sufficient so that they would never ask for favors again. They go to humiliating situations in order to acquire power and lord it over other people.

Whatever favors they asked when “little” it was not to know and befriend people but to ruminate revenge afterwards.  What should have been the best mean of communicating friendship is turned around to be an ugly behavior that downgrades the sense of dignity and pride.

What goes to individuals goes to nations.

The colonial powers were not interested in learning anything from the colonized people; they were not in the mood of conversing and listening.

The colonizing powers started proselytizing the Christian “charity” and ideology, mouthing democratic utopia, exercising technological advantages, enforcing codes of rules, regulations, and laws that applied only to the white men in the colonized countries.

The colonial powers hurled at the colonized people whatever mud they had on hands.  Out of the mounds of mud, the under-developed States painstakingly dug up nuggets of gold.

The western nations did not modernize the under-developed people; it is the poorer people that proved to be more resilient and thirsty for development and progress against the will and interest of the colonizers.  This process did not change.

Whatever breakthroughs the ex-colonized people are achieving it is because of their will to catching up with centuries of neglect against the resisting wishes of the western nations.  The late President of Senegal, Leopold Sengor, said it wonderfully “The colonizers have certainly carried to us plenty of mud.  Amid the mud we discovered gold nuggets.”
