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

An Ancient Beliver cannot even imagine that Deities can have human appearance: arms, legs, long beards, cloths, etc. Anthropomorphous representations, typical in statues, are popular figurations in which finally mankind represents and beatifies itself.

Deities can be perceived and they can be represented by their sacred symbols. All this is passed on and described by Myths. Myths are not fairy tales or legends: they are sacred stories directed to reveal a "mystery" focused on Gods and Goddesses or Heroes and Ancestors. A myth describes a sacred reality happened in illo tempore, ab origine.

Myths describe sacred realities becauses what is sacred is what is real by definition because it has an exemplary model. What is profane has no exemplary models.

In this way, for example agricultural works are sacred activities becaused based on rites revealed by the Divine through a myth. Today agriculture is not a sacred activity being a profane act because based only on the land exploitation for economic purposes, only to produce food, to gain money. Deprived by its sacred meaning, agriculture becomes a bleak and non-sense activity: the effects of such a change are evident to us everyday.

These considerations can be extented to all the human activites in the contemporary society: anything is completely deprived by any religious meaning. We are making only profane acts. and no God or Goddess or Ancestor has never revelaed a profane act.

Anything linked to a myth is sacred: what is made by mankind is profane and not real. The more man/woman is religious, the more he/she is comform to exemplary models inspired by the Divine: the more a man/woman is religious, the more he/she becomes real. It's a form of progressive awaking.

This is maybe the aim and the meaning of any myth: they drive us towards the sacred sphere and therefore in the sphere of reality within a Sacred Space and Time. Myths create exemplary ethical models giving a sense both to physiological events (i.e. food and nutrition) and social functions (politics, economy, etc.)

When undertaking the Via on the one hand, imitating Gods and Goddesses, we remain in a sacred dimension. On the other hand, with a ritualization of acts and gestures, we sacralize the World and, with our religious behaviour, we contribute to defend the sacralization of the World itself.
