Pain is simply the symptom, not the problem
"Pain is not a problem in and of itself. But rather, it is a symptom, a sign of something gone wrong. When one places their hand on a stove, the problem is not the pain but it's the fact they are doing something that shouldn't be done. The pain in this world is simply a sign that something is wrong; something is seriously messed-up. Without pain, we may never realize that something is wrong.'
