How Can We Be Happy?
A group of 50 people attended a seminar.
Suddenly, the speaker stopped to do a group activity. He gave everyone a balloon, and asked them to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and filled another room.
These delegates were asked to find the balloon which had their name written within 5 minutes. Everyone frantically searched for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others in utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one found their own balloon.
Each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and then give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— this happens in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
This is the purpose of human life.
