Suffering Rejection

– Ouch, I’m so irritated, my head keeps buzzing.
“Hmm, that doesn’t sound enjoyable.”
– Ow! There it goes again!
“Ah, I think I understand now, that’s called hearing, it’s not a problem, that’s how it’s supposed to work. When sound occurs, your ears take it in and present it to you.”
– But it hurts!
“Well, you’re assuming that this particular sensation is harmful, and you’re interpreting it as pain, but it’s not harmful or painful, it’s just sound.”
– Oh? Oh.
“Once you get used to this perspective, the irritation will go away.”

Does suffering actually exist or are we misunderstanding life? Can we simply reject the premise of suffering?
