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

March the 9th: Mars' Weapons

This is one of the most important March's festivity together with the lighting of the Sacred Fire of Vesta. After these 9 days, today the new year effectively begins.

This festivity is enterely biased on the idea of "activity" and "expansion" both in Nature's vegetative activity and in body biological activity.

For Ancient Romans this day implied also the beginning of military and war activities.

The Mars' Weapons were in the past 12 lances and 12 shields (lance is the Mars' symbol by definition) which were taken in procession along the streets in Rome. Actually the Mars' Weapons were a lance and a shield rained down from the sky: King Numa made 11 copies to prevent their theft.

At present, we dedicate this day to our activities and our psycho-physical re-generation reflecting also on this idea of "shield" to create a form of protection against physical and soul diseases.
