    En la cosmovisión Muisca, los abuelos hablan de las 3 matrices, La matriz de la Madre que me Parió la cual me entrega a la Matriz de La Madre Tierra la cual me entrega a La Matriz de la Madre Muerte. Ellos nos dicen que es importante tener la mejor relación de cuidado en amor con estas tres Matrices para poder tener el bienestar, la prosperidad y la abundancia en nuestras vidas.

    How do wetlands differ from other ecosystems -- both in the services they offer and in your personal experience of them?

    Los humedales, son el organo que regula el flujo de agua que se impregna en la montaña, son el filtro natural del agua y se encargan de generar un proceso que mineraliza y carga el agua de vida con microorganismos. Son un elemento fundamental en la montaña pues permiten que el agua sea retenida regulando el ciclo de agua.

    Hace parte de mi vida, la construcción con madera, en donde vivo hay plantaciones de arboles maderables. Converso mucho con mis vecinos para que en adelante sean bosques de renovación con especies nativas. Y consumo madera de estos bosques con pensando en la renovación del bosque andino.
