Olympian Gods and Goddesses

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Are you aware of the 12 Olympian gods? Many of us are addicted to stories that are related to the gods and goddesses. But do we know who  they really are? why are they here? where are they from? what are they for? who are they  to us?

There are said to be 12 Olympian gods living in mount Olympus. These 12 Olympian gods are consist of Zeus the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympians, Poseidon the god of the sea, Hades the ruler of the underworld, Hera the goddess of marriage, Demeter the goddess of harvest, Hestia the goddess of hearth, Ares the god of war, Athena the goddess of wisdom, Apollo the god of music, Artemis the goddess of hunt, Aphrodite the goddess of love and Hermes the god of thieves and commerce. We have known these gods and goddess from the very beginning. But the main question here is do they really exist?

One of my favorite gods is the goddess of harvest known as Demeter. This is because of her unique story that we are all aware of. The story tells that when her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, she became very sad which became the reason why all the plants and crops died. Zeus was alarmed by this and sent Hermes to retrieve Persephone but Hades already fed Persephone with pomelo seeds and had a claim on her. To solve the problem they have decided that Persephone will live 4 months on earth, making now the spring, and four months at the underworld which gives us fall. With this story we proved that Demeter really cares for the people that are important to her.

 I am also caring to the people I love and are close to my heart. I never let bad things happen to those people that are important to me. I always think of their sake first before mine which makes me and her very much alike. And this is the reason why she is my favorite god

All of us have one or more traits of the gods. We might not have supernatural powers like their but we are special in our own way. They maybe gods but they are not that different from us. We too can do godly things if we wish to do it. In relation to my question, do they really exist? The answer is yes. The gods and goddesses do exist. They exist in each and every one of us. I consider myself as Demeter because I am caring like her. How about you? Which god are you?
