Walking alone, along a lonely country road, I am often taken wondering in a sudden feeling. I observe everything around me appearing as if I saw the reality for the first time. Maybe. rather than looking at the world for the first time, I have the feeling to be in contact with a "plurality of worlds".
I think that in these moments, I have the possibility to overcome the condition of "habit" or routine: habits have the force to impede the percetion of the things as they really are. In our everyday life, constrained by habits and routines, everything is considered as "given", immutable: we live without living, because we live without perceiving.
Thanks to the perception, we can "catch the moment", we can feel the "instant", feeling a time dimension where there is no past and no future. In the "instant" one can perceive the "feeling of existence." In that moment, free of prejudices of the past and the concerns of the future, one can reach an inner peace and tranquility. This is the deeper and real meaning of carpe diem. Understanding the value of each single moment, we can understand the value of our presence in the world as one of the many potential possible manifestation of the Being: every moment of our life has a value and it should be lived as if it were the last one.
Perceiving the world as if it were the last time means to perceive the world as if it were the first time: tamquam spectator novus.
As Cultores and Cultrices we do not pray the Gods and Goddesses, in the profane sense: we rather perceive them and we live them as an experience: in that precise moment, Gods and Goddesses meet us.
