“The subject matter of suffering is certainly vitally connected to the subject at hand, but basically speaking, disease and suffering are not necessarily connected.  Suffering and death are not necessarily connected either.  The sensations of suffering, and the pain, do exist.  Some are indeed quite natural reactions, and others are learned reactions to certain events.  Walking barefoot on a bed of fire would most likely cause most of you, my readers, to feel the most acute pain – while in some primitive societies, under certain conditions the same situation could result instead in feelings of ecstasy or joy.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 20, 1984)
