They believe in nature and the Gods are in the form of the earth, the sea and the sky.
In New Zealand I loved to listen to the folklore of the Maori and the places we went to gave me a better understanding of all the stories.
Up at Cape Reinga (Read here about the Cape) there were two such legends that made alot of sense to me. Up here, at the northern tip of New Zealand two seas meet. Its where the Pacific meets the Tasman sea and its the Meeting point. A meeting of the Male and the Female.
For someone like me who has lost faith in religion and mankind this place had a calming and deeply comforting aura about it. It made me believe that perhaps I too would one day find my way home.
