.: I’m the (thundering) ocean

Sometimes food is not just food. Sometimes music is not just music. Sometimes feelings are not just feelings.

Sometimes you do feel you’re just a vibe in the universe and it feels great.

The Aztecs believed that cacao seeds were the gift of Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom, and the seeds once had so much value that they were used as a form of currency. Also they believed that Quetzalcoatl had been condemned by the other gods for sharing chocolate with humans.

The Maya people left some surviving writings about cacao which confirm the identification of the drink with the gods. The Dresden Codex specifies that it is the food of the rain deity Kon, the Madrid Codex that gods shed their blood on the cacao pods as part of its production.

Isn’t it sadly ironic that Europeans almost exterminated people who gave chocolate to the world ?
