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.
