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

The problem of Atheism detains peculiar aspects within Traditional Religion: it's a very complex issue hardly simplified into elementary concepts.

Atheism, in general terms, is based on a negation of a transcendent dimension in Nature and in reality. According to a traditional perspective, atheist is not who denies and refuses the existence of Gods/Goddesses, but rather who has been abandoned by Gods/Goddesses. The analytical perspective is thus reversed.

A man abandoned by Gods/Goddesses (even for his choice and decision), is a man abandoned to his fate: he is thus a-theist, deprived of the Gods'/Goddesses' presence and support.

Traditional Religion identifies a distinction between religious and not-religious man rather than believer and atheist.

If Nature and reality are "cases" or "containers", which can be read and interpreted by scientific laws, Gods/Goddesses are the meta-physical content of Nature and reality which finally become expressions of the Divine's manifestation. Describing and interpreting such content is not a science goal: it's impossible to describe into mathematical formula the joy and role of family links (Vesta), the role of Law and Authority (Jupiter/Juno) or the revealed beauty of a Sunset (Venus): these links and meanings have to be interpreted through a different meta-scientific perspective.

Gods/Goddesses may be ignored or disdained: but this approach makes a man/woman a not-religious man/woman. The transcendent dimension is not denied because the idea of humanity, Nature and reality will be otherwise unavoidably reduced and degraded. This degradation results from a negation of those fundamental aspects of human spirit directly connected to this transcendent dimension. This dimension makes mankind and Nature not only a mere quantitative phenomenon, but a qualitative one. If we consider only these quantitative aspects anything is "crippled": both dimensions have thus to be integrated.

Mankind is presently living in this crippled condition whose effects are definitively evident.

Regaining "quality" to mankind and Nature thus firstly means overcoming "Theism" or the God's personification and humanization, the idea of Providence, sanctions, Hell and Heaven, the idea of Divine linked to a sterile idea of Good and Evil. Overcoming theism implies consequently overcoming Atheism because the concept of "Believing" disappears. Disappearing the idea of "believing", also the idea of "believer" will disappear and consequently also the idea of "not-believer". If the term "believer" is a non-sense, similarly also the term "atheist", in conventional terms, will be a non-sense.
