***This geocache is one of a series of puzzle caches being created in 2011 all over Greece called 'Olympian Gods'.***
In Greek mythology, Demetra is the goddess of the harvest, who presided over grains, the fertility of the earth, and the change of seasons .
Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sanctity of marriage, the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries that predated the Olympian pantheon.
During the Eleusinian Mysteries the initiates entered deep into the earth and through a series of ceremonies tred to take an even deeper look into themselves so that the truth about life and death would be revealed to them.
Not every athenian citizen was deemed worthy enough to become an initiate in the Elefsinian Mysteries and even less people would manage to pass all the tests during the mysteries in order to reach the final truth and become adepts.
In order to become adept one should be prepared to face one's own primal fears of the darkness and the unknown.
Once all the ordeals and obstacles where surpassed , the Final and One Truth would be revealed to the new adept. The revelation of the truth offered consolation and unburdened him for ever from the constant fear of death.
