Trying to avoid the inevitable pain, messiness, and unpredictability that comes with life only serves to prevent learning. Indeed, suffering is the result of trying to avoid life. Life cannot be avoided because you are life and no matter how much you try to perform, perfect, please, or prove, you cannot escape yourself.
It makes sense that Jesus experiences loneliness on the Mount of Olives in a place called Gethsemane. The word Gethsemane actually means place where olives are pressed. Jesus experiences profound loneliness in a place where olives are crushed and pressed under huge stones meant to extract their oils.
