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 Cypress

The Cypress is an infelix tree, connected to the underworld deities Pluto and Proserpina and subjected to the influence of Saturn. Because of its shape, it is mainly linked to Pluto (Jupiter of the Underworld: The richest of all the Gods): this God, who traditionally does not have an anthropomorphic representation, is manifested symbolically in the form of a cypress.

Being permeated by this God, who, like all the underground Deities, is connected to the natural cycle of life/death, the cypress trees were always planted in groves around temples: eradicating a cypress symbolically is therefore an act of sacrilege against Pluto.

For the same reason (the cycle of life/death of Nature), the cypress trees are planted around the vineyardsi, cultivated fields, the borders between fields. Its wood is considered sacred and imperishable: the scepter of Jupiter or the club of Hercules are symbolically made ​​of cypress wood.

The cypress expresses Despair and Inconsolable Sorrow. Symbolically, according to tradition being a plant related to Death, it allows to "walk on water" (death is placed above the Life-water), to remain in the abyss and be invisible. This tree is also used for some of the so-called remedies "Purple Via" (purple is the color of Pluto representing the light in darkness) and preparation of incenses and smokes.

His ritual name is Cyparissus
