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

Ius Sacrum - XII Tables 2

In other fragments of the X Table it is possible to find the following norm:
"Separatim nemo abessit Deos neve 
novos neve, advenas nisi publice
adscitos: privatim colunto quos rite
a Patribus acceperint"
Let no one have particular Gods 
neither new Gods nor foreign Gods, 
unless publicly acknowledged, 
privately let men preserve the cults and customs of their Fathers' rites
This norm doesn't ban the introduction of new cults and Deities and it is not inspired to any principle of intolerance.

This norm expresses primarily a prior respect to the Traditional Roman Cults and above all it evidences to Roman Cultores the sacred pact at the base of the traditional society itself, the Pax Romana and the Consensus Deorum. Roman Cultores are thus linked with a sacred pact of reciprocal respect based on antique rites defined by the Patres.

We, today representing the present and future Gentes, state, through the Pietas, this sacred Pact defined ab origine refusing those Deities in conflict with our ethics. This link is surely crucial at public as well as private level. Our communities are in fact composed of families with traditional cults held at home even before in external sacred sites or temples.
We must always keep in mind this principle and in this perspective this norm must be interpreted.
