I feel that we cannot experience the true joy if there is no pain .....joy and pain are like one should suffer pain to know the value of joy. Without pain if one come across joy also will never understand the difference between or what joy actually is....In life both pain and happiness are like two sides of a coin...

Very well said, rorisricha. YEs, if we don't have pain we never understand value of joy. If we never felt hungry, we never experience joy of eating full stomach. If we never experience thirst, the fulfillment after having full glass of water can never be experienced. That is the reason why GOD has planned both sorrow and happiness in our life. So enjoy life fully enjoy both sorrow and happiness. Happy Mylotting.

For me it is true that you have to experience out of your comfort zone in order to learn from it. Experiences makes a person stronger and from it we gain strength to surpass any experiences that is related to the one you went through with.

This is the wonder of the Creator - he has planned our life in such a streamlined way that you cannot find fault with him. You may be doing many faults . Yes He is so generous that though he gives us pain he also shows us ways to find joys after pain. Just think this very calmly you will understand his Leela's. Pain shows the way to happiness. And the wonder is you will only remember the Creator only during the pain.. During joy you will not at all remember him. It is our firm duty to remember him always - As Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj says ; START THE DAY WITH G O D FILL THE DAY WITH G O D END THE DAY SITH G O D.

Pain is just like a test paper in life. It made us strong and be a better person. In life we experience smiles and sighs. We either laugh or cry. We met happy hellos and sad goodbyes. But God is nice because with Him we create a life long ties. Pain is to spice up our life. It makes us value the true Joy in life.
