God has set up the Law. And the Law is the Universal Love. And when we violate the Law, we have to learn from that mistake. That is the only reason we suffer. To learn. But God doesn't seek to punish us. As soon as we come to understand, He may end our suffering. We call it God's Mercy.
In any case, we do not suffer because it is God's will. We suffer of ourselves. Our suffering is of our own making. All that is needed is to wake up.
Is dying a suffering? Are we responsible for that as well?
