As Buddha noticed, pain-and-suffering is simply the human condition. It should be obvious, but just in case any reader is leading a charmed life, I refer to physical, emotional and mental pain of all sorts that arises in association with frustration, irritation, disappointment, resentment, envy, bitterness, disgust, misery and so on. It flows from accidents, neglect, maltreatment, illness, and natural events. At the slightly deeper level of awareness considered here, any breach in your experience of unity with goodness generates pain. That is probably why pain is often, mistakenly, described as evil. It is not. It is simply a feature of life, and beneficial in that it keeps you grounded in reality.
The next step in producing goodness is therefore about in an appropriate way. This is made possible by adding a third adjacent goodness to create . Each is a Triad. The function of these is to repair the inevitable disruptions to goodness in human existence.
While it is not possible to remove suffering entirely or permanently from human life, it is possible to repair that breach in unity between a person and the presumed cause. The cause might be attributed to another person, a group, society, the environment, or God. That breach spoils the sense that «life is good».
It is likely that most people reflexly do the right thing because, at the moment it is required,often seems just common sense. However, all too often, is not so easy: suffering persists, pain is not overcome and a sense that «life is not good» persists.
When this is the case, you must develop habits so that use of thebecomes instinctive. You will then act spontaneously, improving your life and benefiting those about you. The quality of the third level is described as spontaneous.

Confusion #2: The chosen THEE-names have other meanings. This is normal, because most words have several meanings. Usually the context makes matters clear. When clarity is essential in this website, I append the formula to the term.
Confusion #3: It is easy to mix up what humanity needs with what society values. I note that using the same name for the exercise of a generosity" and "forgiveness" are different THEE entities with different functions and implications when the terms refer to , rather than to .and the is common: e.g. "
