The Mystery of Pain
recording of The Mystery of Pain by James Hinton.
Read in English by Ethan D. Gilkey
This book is addressed to the sorrowful, … to whom their own or others’ pain is a daily burden, upon whose hearts it weighs with an intolerable anguish. I seek to speak to these ; not as a teacher, but as a fellow. Sharing their feeling, and knowing well how vain is the attempt to throw off misery, or to persuade ourselves that life is better than it is, I would fain share with them also some thoughts that have seemed to me capable of casting a bright gleam of light athwart the darkness, and, if they are true, of bringing an immense, an incredible joy out of the very bosom of distress. – Summary by James Hinton
