Henry Miller on the meaning of life and the mystery of the universe

Posted: March 24, 2013 in Ideas

No matter what you touch and you wish to know about, you end up in a sea of mystery. You see theres no beginning or end, you can go back as far as you want, forward as far as you want, but you never got to it, its like the essence, its 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 cant grasp it. And its meant to be that way, do yknow. And theres where our reverence should come in. Before everything, the littlest thing as well as the greatest. The tiniest, the horseshit, as well as the angels, do yknow what I mean. Its all mystery. All impenetrable, as it were, right?Complement This Is Henry, Henry Miller from Brooklyn with Millers meditations on creative death and the art of living.
