Answer: We should not engage too much in how to escape sufferings and how not to feel it.
We need to advance correctly, and even small sufferings will be felt as correct guiding forces. Man cannot move only by the right force. We will not get anywhere if we move only by pleasures.
We need to move along two lines: right and left. You take a small child by both hands and teach him how to walk.
