The current Green Pass (GP) policies in Italy are having a huge impact on the general climate in the country, above all by creating fear and division. We recently wrote an article on Damanhur’s position on the GP and have received a lot of feedback from our readers, both to support our position and some to express opposition. We believe strongly in exchanging opinions and we have published all the comments. We would also like to encourage the discussion on this topic to continue – feel free to tell us how you feel about this on the bottom of this article.

Many have also asked us to share more information on Damanhur’s vision of this historical moment, our spiritual view on the vaccines, the Green Pass, and on the Covid-19 epidemic in general.

We interviewed Stambecco, representative of our School of Medit-Action, the body which represents the spiritual wing of Damanhur, to share School’s position on these points.

We cannot separate the social and the political evaluations completely because in Damanhur spirituality and daily life are closely connected. In our vision the spiritual interpretation of current events is clear: it brings separation, inspires unhealthy opposition – and not only between those in favour and those opposed to vaccinations and Green Pass, but even within those two camps of opinion. Above all, the events inspire sense of fear, which leads to various negative forms of behaviour.

So far as our spiritual point of view is concerned, it does not matter if the virus was born in the lab and escaped by mistake or spread by someone’s wilful effort. Paradoxically, it is not even important if the unrolling events are to be seen as an attack of some higher forces adverse to human life that has prevailed over events. What we believe is indeed important is that we all come out from this experience more united on a collective level, and more responsible on a personal level, thus allowing us to prevail in any future challenges.

This is the goal we feel worthy of everyone to set towards themselves personally, but also towards others and society as a whole: not to fall into the spiral of division and fear. In other words, we need to rediscover the value of freedom, respect for free choice of others and standing in defense of our own.

In Damanhur everyone is free to decide whether to get vaccinated. Some for various reasons decided to get vaccinated, many reluctantly so; but we all observe the recommended sanitary measures, including the mandatory Covid swabs.

The choice to offer the budget-prices Covid swabs to all members of public who come to our health center is not our implicit endorsement of the mandatory GP, but on contrary – a way to allow people to skip vaccination if they choose not to do so, and at the same time be able to continue working and living their lives without excessive additional costs. It is our way of showing solidarity, an important spiritual tenet of our community.

We have posted on this blog Damanhur’s position on vaccines and GP, which is not a favorable one. Unfortunately, the world today does not seem to be moving in a direction of mutual respect, awareness and openness. Social and spiritual missions led by groups and communities such as ours seek to become an alternative and a long-term remedy to this sad trend. Realms of unfair politics and exploitative economic powers are once again demonstrating a lack of alignment with the interests of citizens and society and misplaced judgement of their role. Despite all of this, however, we believe in humanity and in common sense (another spiritually important value), and think that the world needs to be helped to grow positively, not to be fought against. This is why our commitment is maintaining solidarity, and while staying in compliance with the law at the same time working towards having those restrictive rules abandoned.
