Is there meaning to pain and suffering?

If experiencing more 'depth' of life is the answer, how is 'depth' worth so much pain?

    Yes, simply biological.

    Your nerves makes your brain send "signals" of pain and suffering so that you stop what you are doing in order to prevent (further) harm to your body (physically and psychologically).

    How can ones life be complete without pain and suffering,

    How can ones life be complete just with happiness no other feelings felt.

    Each person has their own level of experiencing things,own journey,to one

    it may not seem,"so much depth"... to others may be bigger than ocean.

    Depth,whichever way you take it.To some pain to some love.Digging

    deep down to find,something more,discovering.Love.Self discovery.

    Pain and pleasure/blessing is the same one Reality, the same Coin!

    Pain and blessing/pleasure are two different Perspectives of the same One Reality!

    It's a matter of Perspective!


    The First Law of Soul Dynamics;

    "For every Perspective, there is an equal and opposite Perspective!"

    "The immature run from pain, the wise seek the blessing within!" - Book of Fudd

    "I say that next to God there is no nobler thing than suffering. Right suffering is the mother of all virtues, for right suffering so subdues the heart, it cannot rise to pride but perforce is lowly." - Meister Eckhart

    "Harkee, all rational souls! The swiftest steed to bear you to your goal is suffering; none shall ever taste eternal bliss but those who stand with Christ in depths of bitterness. Nothing is more gall-bitter than suffering, nothing so honey-sweet as to have suffered. The most sure foundation for this perfection is humility, for he whose nature here creeps in deepest depths shall soar in spirit to highest height of Deity.' - Meister Eckhart

    ALL of the human virtues grow in pain; sympathy, empathy, love, compassion, wisdom...

    I think, Only Meaning is Our Mind is Associate with the Pain and Suffering.

    Pain and suffering have a function, biologically, to inform you to try and fix things. But they do not have a meaning. Life in general does not have a meaning. You can do whatever you want in the end. And people can try and stop you if they don't like that. And maybe they'll stop you. But maybe they won't.

    because in that you understand how feeble you are, so not to brag against HIM(you know whom)

    one of the prophets(does not matter if you believe in this) said that

    "by some or all of the pain we suffer we release sins, we are free from some of them"

    it is like retaliation

    yes, sometimes it is too cruel, but that is the life

    sometimes you are full of pleasure sometimes you are dying, we are not immortal

    we will live for good in heaven/hell

    have a nice day

    Suffering pain will make you realise that you are THERE, ALIVE, though suffering.

    It allows you to empathize more with others who are suffering.

    And life is always hard; death is simple but after death, you won't live as you do now ever again.

    so enjoy life, and relish pain and suffering. they let you realise that you are alive, and they make you grow stronger if you manage it


    wtf, i sound like a emo machoist...


    go to a hospital or talk to relatives and friends?

    Pain and suffering is who we are. Without it, the world cannot exist.

    It's not just a sign of life, but a test of your strength.
