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]

The World Youth Friendship Parliament

Cosmic Man  Einstein's Legacy

The World Youth Friendship Parliament was inspired by William Hermanns' conversations with Albert Einstein, who both believed the hope for a peaceful world lay with the youth of the world becoming people of conscience, which Einstein called Cosmic Persons.  They believe that youth are closer to their feelings and not as hemmed in by beliefs, theories and traditions.

In 1982 William Hermanns founded the Einstein-Hermanns Foundation with Kenneth Norton and Ulf Sjödin, a postdoctoral medical student from Sweden studying at the time at Stanford University.  Hermanns'  book Einstein and the Poet - In Search of the Cosmic Man was published the next year, 1983, by Branden Press.  This attracted interest in the World Youth Friendship Parliament by youth.  The Foundation purchased  Villa Muramaris near the old Hansa League city of Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland for a site to house the Parliament, and in 1988 the World Youth Friendship Parliament came into being with its first session of youth participants from around the world.

The Foundation unfortunately lost the property due to the inability to raise adequate funding.  The founder died in April 1990 and the Foundation was closed.  The concept is good.
