Light on Life’s Difficulties

Light on Life’s Difficulties

“Light on Life’s Difficulties” is a 1912 self-help book by British writer James Allen. Within it, Allen explores the nature and origin of day-to-day problems, offering advice and insight on how to overcome difficulties and live a happier life. James Allen (1864–1912) was a British writer most famous for his inspirational poetry and being an early leader of the self-help movement. “As a Man Thinketh” (1903), his best known work, has been a significant source of inspiration for many self-help authors. Allen's 1908 book “The Life Triumphant” concentrates on mastering one's mind and desires in order to live a happier and more successful life, focusing on the ideas of “right thinking” and self-control. Contents include: “The Light that Leads to Perfect Peace”, “Light on Facts and Hypotheses”, “Light on the Law of Cause and Effect in Human Life”, “Light on Values–Spiritual and Material”, “Light on the Sense of Proportion”, “Light on Adherence to Principle”, “Light on the Sacrifice of the Self”, “Light on the Management of the Mind”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

Light on life’s Difficulties (Annotated with Biography about James Allen)

Light on life’s Difficulties (Annotated with Biography about James Allen)

When a man enters a dark room he is not sure of his movements, he cannot see objects around him, or properly locate them, and is liable to hurt himself by coming into sudden contact with them. But let a light be introduced, and immediately all confusion disappears. Every object is seen, and there is no danger of being hurt. To the majority, life is such a dark room, and their frequent hurts—their disappointments, perplexities, sorrows and pains—are caused by sudden contact with principles which they do not see, and are therefore not prepared to deal with. But when the light of wisdom is introduced into the darkened understanding, confusion vanishes, difficulties are dissolved, all things are seen in their true place and proportion, and henceforth the man walks open-eyed and unhurt, in the clear light of wise comprehension. This version of the classic book includes a biography about the life and times of James Allen.

He must have the key of every closet, of every cupboard, and of every room. Do not try to make them fit for Him. Simply give Him the key. He will cleanse and renovate and make beautiful.
