Quote from: Ven. Tanissaro, quoted by Dhammapal on DW, An Introduction to Pain
As Ajaan Suwat used to say, "We normally take our cravings as our friends and our pains as our enemies. We should switch that around. Learn to look at pain as your friend, and craving as your enemy." The craving is what's really causing all the problems. The pain is just there to teach you something. Of course, it's a difficult friend. Some people are easy to be friends with; you can get along with them with no problem at all. Others are difficult. Pain is definitely a difficult friend, but one worth cultivating. Still, because it's difficult, you have to go about it the right way.

This is why, when we start meditating, the Buddha doesn't have us focus immediately on the pain. He says to focus on the breath instead, because whatever pain is associated with the breath — and it tends to be subtle, but it is there — is something you can manage, something you can deal with. He gives you the breath as your tool for dealing with the pain. So when you're aware of pain, don't yet let your primary focus be on the pain. Keep your focus on the breath. In other words, get used to being acquainted with the breath first, because that's the person who'll introduce you to pain properly. It's like meeting any important person: You first have to get to know certain well-connected friends who can introduce you to that person. And that's the way it is with pain: You have to know the breath first, for it's your well-connected friend.

An importand verbalication of this issue, insight:

If wishing to become Sangha, one needs to be friend of the Sangha first: Sanghamitta.

There is no possibility to access the Noble Ones if not seeking refuge in them, befriending the Savaka Sangha!

In relation to this topic, once friend suffering:

Quote from: Johann on BSE
Householder Luis Orantes, and those interested,

In order to understand/better see the 1. Noble Truth, which is actually the cause condition of the path to liberation , one has to get known the The difficult, importand friend, who is not at all an enemy but the cause that Saddhā, ...contentment,... happiness,...concentration,...wisdom, release, knowledge of release whould arise. For one who does not proper focus on suffering everywhere, the path would never develop and he would stay delight once here, once there, bound.

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

...conviction has stress & suffering as its prerequisite, joy has conviction as its prerequisite, rapture has joy as its prerequisite, serenity has rapture as its prerequisite, pleasure has serenity as its prerequisite, concentration has pleasure as its prerequisite, knowledge & vision of things as they actually are present has concentration as its prerequisite, disenchantment has knowledge & vision of things as they actually are present as its prerequisite, dispassion has disenchantment as its prerequisite, release has dispassion as its prerequisite, knowledge of ending has release as its prerequisite...

So without leaving home, stand, and look out for the suffering in the world, as long householder, it's difficult to ever trace or practice on the path, yet it is the suffering seen in the world, in ones home, stand, that leads one out and to went forth, having found a worthy refuge.
