Michaux, Henri - Miserable Miracle Mescaline - The eccentric gentleman of cannabis
Type of Spiritual Experience
If the communication is in words and sentences it is a bodied or disembodied soul. If the communication is symbolic, or uses words as puns, or is simply a ‘thought’ without words – an impression conveyed, communication is with a Spirit being , Spirit helper or Intelligence.
A description of the experience
Henri Michaux – Miserable Miracle Mescaline
Here Henri tries cannabis as opposed to mescaline
The images were distinct – stayed quietly in place. I had enough time (just enough) to see them clearly. It was like a series of very short scenes in colour, very well composed, on the sober side, the last one very like a stage tableau, ending abruptly, a tableau, like a final word. As if the whole thing had been composed by an eccentric gentleman. Preposterous, sometimes witty, a deadpan comedian...............
It seemed as if someone, quite the artist and very well informed about me, by means of freakish spectacles (more tricky than laughable) and which one did well to take into account, were introducing himself to me, or rather, before introducing himself , were bent on showing me how knowing he was, knowing in general and about me, in particular. He was really ingenious. He intrigued me, proved to be crafty and treacherous.
He read me like a book, spied in me, would show me the same pictures I had just been looking at after having reinterpreted, refashioned them and turned them into composite monsters.... one didn't have to be a great scholar to recognise the allusions in them and the mocking intention.
