To My Neighbor


I lift you higher,
lift you out
of your body cells
stuffed with anxiety
of your past -
an evil load that smells.

I'll fill each cell
with love and joy
that makes the
angels dance.
You'll glide through earthly
filth and stench -
a spiritual trance.

From your youth filled eyes,
your hands
and feet,
a holy peace shall flow,
so you and I
be filled with grace -
let us be still
and know.

William Hermanns
[P527]

Seelentränen


Seelentränen sind Gedichte,
rot mit Herzblut aufgeschrieben,
tiefem Menschenleid zum Ruhm,

Lies sie still in reinem Lichte,
unbeschattet,
frei von Trieben:
Du betrittst ein Heiligtum.


Wilhelm Hermanns
[G001]

Intuition and Conscience

Einstein & the Poet  Cosmic Man

William Hermanns was concerned to do the right thing, to be a man of conscience. which his friend Albert Einstein referred to as a cosmic man.

He believed this initial guidance needed to be intuited prior to the workings of the intellect, which is often fueled by emotions associated with sensory information due to past experiences. He wanted real information about the present moment that concerned his action and his relationship to the world as one whole.

His poetry, writings and talks were created out of this primary interest in the practical and ethical workings of conscience in his life and the unfolding history of humanity. His journey took him into territories of different religions, seeking to find the common good and truth. He came to value the stillness of contemplation, meditation and prayer in different settings, to bring him in attunement with his conscience through intuition.

As he learned more about intuition, he was able to make sense of his past and made it his goal to be aware of its presence in every moment as a guiding light.

His vow on the Battlefield of Verdun and the intuitional guidance he received amidst the chaos, suffering and death set the stage of his life. His account of his discovery of conscience in his book The Holcaust - from a Survivor of Verdun (1972, Harper & Row) was praised by Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry and also in Peace in his review sent to the publisher: "It should be read by everyone."

Whether we actually are in a physical battle, a war, or not, most everyone is struggling to make sense out of experiences in the world and to create a better world. It may take the form of research, business, family life, art, and leaving a legacy.

The questions arise: Is it the right goal? Is it the right way to achieve the goal? Are the right relationships in place for achieving the goal? Do I have a right view of myself in achieving this goal? Where do I find resources to help achieve the goal? Intuition provides the guidance and its detection can be learned by anyone with a passion for change for the better, and this change will affect not only the outer world but also the principles and beliefs one holds dear.

Here is a link to a blog of the Brandeis scholar Lois Isenman. She is interested in how intuition plays a role in scientific discovery, and the most read article is that on Intuition and Einstein, that refers to William Hermanns' book Einstein and the Poet - In Search of the Cosmic Man (1983, Branden Press).
