Mexica Spirituality

Our ancestors scientifically pointed out the main manifestations of Our Creator as Matter and Matter-in-Movement as:

Water (Atl) represented by Tlaloc, the blood of the universe, who is represented by the moon (meztli) and the eastern direction and by the animal symbol of the owl (tecolotl);

Earth (Tlalli) represented by Tezcatlipoca, the flesh of the universe, who is in turn represented by the earth (tlalli) and the northern direction and by the animal symbol of the jaguar (ocelotl);

Air-Wind (Ehecatl) represented by Quetzalcoatl, the breath of the universe, who is in turn represented by the planet venus (tlahuizcalpantecuhtli) and the western direction
and by the animal symbol of the quetzal feathered serpent (quetzalcoatl);

and Fire (Tlachinolli) represented by Huitzilopochtli, the heart of the universe, who is in turn represented by the sun (tonatiuh) and the southern direction and by the animal symbol of the eagle (cuauhtli).

We understood Our Creator to be everything.

Our Creator was understood to be in everything:
Our Father the Sun, as essence of the Sky, that which lights and warms us; Our Mother the Soil, as the essence of the Earth, who provides for us and nourishes us.

In all of these understandings we understood Our Creator very scientifically, based exclusively on observation, based on proven physics, chemistry, and astronomy.
We wrote of these understandings in metaphor, myth, poetry,
and mystic intellectual concepts, and in art and architecture.
