As I Feared:

Creative work is often driven by pain. It may be that if you don't have something in the back of your head driving you nuts, you may not do anything. It's not a good arrangement. If I were God, I wouldn't have done it that way.
― Cormac McCarthy
Carl Jung was right. Usually, a person must pay dearly for the divine gift of creative fire. But I can see the logic in God's design. A happy person wouldn't do anything all day except sit around being happy. It's the discontented that get things done. 

Maybe that's the real reason God cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden. They were too happy.
