Why Suffering? ASK A YOGI (by Nayaswami Hriman)

A "gentle voice" explained to him that without the opposites of pain and pleasure, inter alia, the drama of life could not be sustained. Moreover, "the dice are loaded" because pain is a prod to sensitive hearts to seek a solution. That solution can only be found in the transcendent state of God-consciousness. But does this satisfy the heart?
