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

Divine Forces, Divine Energies

In this blog I often use terms like "Force", "Energy", "Power" as representation of the Divine. As these terms are not used by accident, but with a precise value and meaning, I think that it could be useful to provide some detail about this issue.

In another post, I have defined Gods and Goddesses as "super-existential expressions of the Being" or manifestations of the reality standing above the the mere existence in profane and physical terms.

Gods and Goddesses, as plurality of these manifestations, do not have a simple naturalistic value, even if filling any aspect of the Nature with their essence. In this perspective these super-existential expressions of the Being are not placed within a quantitative and spatial dimension, but, firstly, within a Spiritual Dimension, as creating and productive sources. For this reason they appears to us as Creating and Producing Powers where the term Power doesn't describe a potentiality, but rather the pure action, the act, the acting.

Gods and Goddesses are thus Pure Acts, Active Forces having a Spiritual Creative Energy: this force, this energy trascends the physical dimension characterized by the "quantity": for this reason they are above the Being but in the same time filling with their qualities any aspect of the Being. They are thus the essence, the contents of the World, the Nature, the Universe. 

Understanding the Gods and Goddesses, through their manifestation, using the Vocabulary, the compass of the Traditional Roman Spirituality, means to achieve the Pax Deorum starting also to understand what the Nature really is rather than how the Nature works.

Thank you for this post - this is one of the best descriptions of the nature of the Gods I have come across

Thank you for your commment. Of course I do not describe a dogma but rather a personal vision (in a very broad sense). It is important therefore to understand how the vision and perception of Gods and Goddesses arise within the single spirituality of each woman and man (of course capable to receive such a perception and vision)as very personal experience.
Pax et Fortuna

I would like to add some reflections. In consideration of what I have written above, I would like to highlight that these "personal experiences" of the Divine are always worth our respect, in any peaceful declination and level, from the simplest to the most complex. This is at the base of the "pagan tolerance" too often the monoteism is likely to be unable to consider.

Absolutely, I tend to think that personal experiences drive authentic spirituality. Religio is not about slavishly following a bunch of commandments written in a so called holy book; it is about connecting with the divine.

absolutely, these are the moments of insight which transcend the intellect, this is true spirituality.
