Joy Beyond Pain (1961-10-06); Protection From Our Weaknesses (1962-10-12)


This recording has two parts. In "Joy Beyond Pain," Thurman discusses the physical experience of feeling unable to continue but then feeling a surge of unexplained energy. He suggests that there is a parallel experience in the spirit, in which we can access additional spiritual resources that allow us to continue in moments of weariness or exhaustion.

In "Protection from Our Weaknesses," he discusses human weaknesses, how they are exploited or used as excuses, and that we often are protected from knowing our own weaknesses. He also explores the idea of experiences resulting from cause and effect or else from things in which we had no part.
