Henry Miller quotes: magic, knowledge, mystery, confusion, mind, and becoming new

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                

 

“There was something beyond clarity here- it was magic. ...it was extraordinary. And the reason...was because I was just ignorant enough to be susceptible to that which is lost in the fine meshes of order and clarity.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“You beg me to come closer to the heart of our subject. What is our subject if not the grievous effect of knowledge.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“For reality is the goal, deny it how we will. And we can approach it only by an ever-expanding consciousness, by burning more and more brightly, until even memory itself vanishes.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“...one thing became very clear and that was that there were ways of not understanding and that the difference between the non-understanding of one individual and the non-understanding of another created a world of terra firma even more solid than differences of understanding.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“Before the immensity of mystery one stands like a centipede that feels the ground slipping beneath its feet. Every door that opens leads to a greater void. One must swim like a star in the trackless ocean. One must have the patience of radium buried beneath a Himalayan peak.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“I am sure that in certain quarters the myth will come true, that here and there a link will be found between the unknown men we were and the unknown men we are, that the confusion of the past will be marked by a greater confusion to come, and that it is only the tumult and confusion which is of importance and that we must get down and worship it.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“To become the great lover, the magnetizer and catalyzer, the blinding focus and inspiration of the world, one has to first experience the profound wisdom of being an utter fool.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“Abandoning the cunning instruments of the mind with which he had vainly hoped to pierce the mystery, he now stands before the veil of creation naked and awe-struck. He divines what is in store for him. Everything becomes personal in a new sense. He becomes himself a new person.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“The disorientation and reorientation which comes with the initiation into any mystery is the most wonderful experience which it is possible to have. Everything which the brain has labored for a lifetime to assimilate, categorize and synthesize has to be taken apart and reordered. Moving day for the soul!”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“No matter what you touch and you wish to know about, you end up in a sea of mystery. …it’s like the essence, isn’t that right, it remains. This is the greatest damn thing about the universe. That we can know so much, recognize so much, dissect, do everything, and we can’t grasp it. And it’s meant to be that way, do y’know. … It’s all mystery.”

                Henry Miller

 

 

“...what happened to me is- I became an angel.”

                Henry Miller
