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

What animates man? What makes man think and feel?

According to Traditional Roman Religion this function is sacralized by Genius (expression of male nature) and Juno (expresison of female nature).

Genius/Juno represent "personality" created at birth: they are a sort of guardians accompanying us throughout our life. The cult of Genius/Juno is a duty of the entire family: the festivity of Genius/Juno corresponds to the everyone's "Dies Natalis" from which it has derived the personal "birthday".

On human body Genius/Juno are ideally placed in the forehead: their symbol is the snake and this symbol links Genius/Juno to the Lares.

Genius/Juno give personality to man and other expressions of Genius/Juno give personality i.e. to sites as in the case of the Genius Loci. Genius Loci gives personality and identity to a specific place or site: he is the spirit of a place, its soul. It is thus essential to have the capability to acknowledge the presence of a Genius Loci in every place we are in, giving to him the necessary respect: nobody of us is owner of a place because we are only guests.

We must give respect for the places where we live or visit because we are called to give respect to the related Genius Loci.
