From the early years of his teachings until his passing, Falco always invited us to look inward to discover our divine nature, to explore the world and life through it. What does “divine nature” mean? It means that the entire universe is pervaded by a unique, cohesive intelligence that is conscious of itself, which takes on animal, plant, mineral, spiritual, temporal forms and characteristics… and being part of this energy means being part of the All, and in turn, being divine ourselves. Realizing this is the first step!

We are in a new era. The symbolic passage from the second to the third millennium, from the Age of Pisces to Aquarius, marks a decisive change in the paradigm of life on our planet. Sharing, research, love, uniting different sources of knowledge, integration, sensitivity, these are the voices that – depending on the cultures and experiences of diverse peoples – can lead the humanity that has survived for the last millennia to a fuller self-awareness.

To spread this message, Falco used many languages: the language of esotericism and mythology, the language of philosophical reflection, the language of mysticism, the language of art and enchantment. Through each of them, he told about his vision of the world, inviting in those who want to create their own, drawing elements from each of his tales.

This complexity, this multiformity of his teachings is another fundamental element of Falco’s message. Spirituality is not just in some things, in some languages, in some subjects. Spirituality means going in the same direction as life, knowing to grasp and attribute meaning to each event, and knowing how to live in a spiritual-artistic-creative way, words that for Falco were almost synonymous. Any time of the day, from the time of prayer to the time of singing in the shower! It is the intensity of our actions, living every moment fully that makes the difference between being subjected to life and actively living it.

The main characteristic of this message is its amplitude, its extension into many fields of spiritual life and daily life, providing a complete perspective about existence. Both Falco’s teaching and, more importantly, its actualization in Damanhur cover 360 degrees across all fields of life. Falco’s vision is transcendent and pantheistic at the same time, celebratory and minimalist, lay and devotional, classical and futuristic, connected to art and technology, to organization and creativity. It is anarchist and “verticista” (favoring leadership structures).

This is primarily the reason his vision has attracted so many people who have wanted to get to know it, and pushed away so many others in search of superficial consolation. All this gives rise to a philosophy strongly characterized, recognizable and wide-ranging, one that can be interpreted by anyone depending on their own preparation and sensitivity. He would probably have said “fitting for his time” if he wanted to comment on himself.

Falco was a warrior of the spirit. Beyond the breadth of the range of themes that he covered, the ease with which he often faced important and challenging arguments, he constantly reminded us that a smile, welcoming and understanding are the clothes with which we dress up grit, the strength of the soul, and the constant push to improve ourselves that animates us.

Falco taught us to think well of others and always give them another chance, to never give up or turn the other cheek, which he doubted that anyone ever really said.
