      I love confirmation.... NOW.... I know why I like to stop the boat in the middle of Lake Atitlan to meditate!
      I feel that the energy there is quite special, but didn't know why.
      Now we do. I know this is why I wanted to go back to Lake Atitlan last year!

      Divers search Mayan Ruins Submerged in Guatemalan Lake

      ABC News: Scuba divers are exploring the depths of a volcanic lake in Guatemala to find clues about an ancient sacred island where Mayan pilgrims flocked to worship before it was submerged by rising waters. The Maya built soaring
      pyramids and elaborate palaces in Central America and southern Mexico before mysteriously abandoning their cities around 900 A.D. Samabaj, the first underwater archaeological ruins excavated in Guatemala, were discovered accidentally 12 years ago by a diver exploring picturesque Lake Atitlan, ringed
      by Mayan villages and popular with foreign tourists. Roberto Samayoa, a businessman and recreational diver who grew up near the lake has dived in it for years.
      He says in a newspaper report that he would often find pieces of pottery from the Mayan pre-classic period. In 1996, he found the site, with parts of buildings and huge ceremonial stones, known as stelae, clearly visible. He named it Samabaj,
      after himself, but only in the past year have professional archaeologists taken an interest, mapping the 4,300-square-foot (400-square-meter) area with sonar technology and excavating structures on a raised part of the lake bed. Researchers believe this area, 50 feet below the lake's surface, was once an island until a catastrophic event, like a volcanic eruption or landslide, raised water levels. The rising lake drowned the buildings around 250 A.D., before the height of the Mayan empire, and ceramics found intact there suggest the inhabitants left in a hurry.

      Our Dear Brother David from New Zealand,
      and self professed Maya Lands Jungle Junkie writes beautiful poetry to keep himself in the energy of the Maya Lands while being in the world. I wanted to share this one with you.
      STANDING in the LIGHT
      In fields of flowers
      There is
      wonder and beauty
      In the dancing sunlight.

      In the hearts and minds
      of the townsfolk
      who stroll these pathways
      Lies the emerging will and way
      and courage
      To open unto Light
      Rise up and hear the call
      to know and serve.

      We grow together as one
      Blessed Gaia
      Sacred Earth Mother
      And all her children
      Nurtured through aeons of change
      To this awakening.

      In the heart of the Heavens
      And the heart of the Earth
      We come to our Centre
      Awake, aware, open and ready
      To receive, to know, to do and be
      At one with all that arises.

      As we walk together
      Through our ways and days
      We bring Light to share
      And spread around in dark places.
      We heal ourselves, and each other,
      As we heal the land.

      Whisperings of Spirit
      We hear your call
      We, guardians of Light,
      Will take our stand.

      It is time to walk tall
      Once more
      And softly on the land.
      Only a few spots left in our next maya pilgrimage. http://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/mayatour.html
