Everyone wants to find happiness in life. No matter what our circumstances are, the search for true contentment is at the heart of everyone.
The question, then, is how?
How are we supposed to even begin looking for it?
A group of people gathered in a room attending a seminar about life & happiness to learn to find happiness in their lives. They were being taught various skills and lessons about life.
Suddenly, the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. He asked everyone to write his name on this balloon. All the balloons were then collected and taken to another room.
Now, these people were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within five-minutes.
Everyone was searching for their name, pushing, colliding with each other.
No one could find their balloon within the given five-minutes, and they all had to return empty-handed.
Then they were told to go to that room again and randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within five minutes everyone was carrying the balloon with their name on it.
The same happening in our lives. Everyone is looking own happiness all around, not knowing where it is?
“Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness, you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.”
