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

Defining Gods

Gods are "super-existential forms of the being". They are the sacralization of energies, forces, powers or concepts.

When a God is "naked" or "a neutral expression" then he/she can be defined as "numen". This term derives from the latin "nuo" which means "to nod" that is the way through which the numen manifests himself/herself.

In general, Gods are powers neither masculine nor feminine or, better, they are both masculine and feminine. Each God shows masculine and feminine polarities which are in harmony and cannot prevail on each other: for example Jupiter (masculine polarity) and Juno (feminine polarity) .

Only in some cases, there are some Gods having only one polarity, the feminine one; this is the case of the Great Mothers who have not a masculine polarity.

According to tradition, three forms of theology can be identified:
  • popular theology
  • natural theology
  • social theology
Each God may be included, in one way or another, within these three thelogies: Jupiter for example represents the sacralization of the flash of lightning (natural theology) and authority (social theology) having also a long series of qualities and appellations (indigitamenta)

Do not forget that anything is "normal" is "sacred".
