Quando in un bosco ne percepisci la bellezza e diventi tutt'uno con il bosco, allora, intuitivamente, sei in armonia e in pace con le Dee e con gli Dei. Essi sono parte della nostra vera natura, la nostra Natura Profonda, e quando siamo separati dalla nostra vera natura, viviamo nella paura. Percepire questa normalità vuol dire dare un senso reale al vivere che è insito in tutte le cose.

Intraprendere la Via Romana al Divino significa iniziare un percorso di risveglio: praticando l'attenzione e la consapevolezza continua ci incamminiamo lungo una strada sapendo che ciò che conta è il cammino per sè più che la destinazione.

When you, entering a forest, perceive the beauty of the forest and you feel to be in a complete harmony with it, then, intuitively, you are in peace with the Deities. They are an essential part of our real nature, our Deep Nature, and when we are separated by our real nature we live in the fear. Perceiving such normality means giving a real sense to our lives.

Undertaking the Roman Via to the Deities implies a path to awakening: with the practice of continuing consciousness and awareness we undertake our walking knowing that taking the path is more important than the destination itself

December the 10th: Janus' Agonalia

This day is dedicated to Janus. Janus represents "the Beginning".

Symbols of Janus are the springs, the doors and the keys. In a broader sense, Janus represents the passage from a dimension to another, from a time to another, from a space to another through "gates" (Ianua). For this reason Janus is usually portrayed with doubled opposed faces, even if having a third face the common man cannot see.

The most common Janus' symbol is a couple of crossed keys: one gold and one silver key. These keys symbolize the possibility to open the past and the future: they also open the Ianua Coeli and the Ianua Inferi (this very complex topic will be discussed separately).

This symbol has been copied by the christian church and it can be very easily found in any church or in many pope's insigna and signs: many christians do not know to be in front of a symbol through which Janus "speaks".

Janus is however the "Begininng": in addition to the first month of the year (January), also the month's first day and the day's first hour are consecrated to Janus.

Remember Janus before begginning anything...
