Pain may occur at times, but suffering is optional. God's Will for you is complete joy.
We suffer because we resist. We try to control -- how foolish are we to think that we know what is best for us. God is the forest and we think that we have the treetop perspective when our face is up against the bark of a tree. This is the ego thinking it knows better than God.
Only by full surrender that we do not know, that we have no control, can we effortlessly ride the River of Life and avoid getting smashed on the rocks. We may experience pain -- likely will -- bit suffering is by our own hand. And within pain there is still the joy of God.
