How to be Happy Now and for Ever?

Everyone experiences an unhappy mood sometime, but a  few are unhappy most of the time. Those who live a habitually unhappy life  probably do not where to look for happiness. Everyone wants to be happy, but few know what happiness really is.  Following incident is simplest remedy for the problem.

Once a group of a small group of people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped talking and started giving each one a balloon. He asked each one to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

He came on dais and asked the participants to go to the room where balloons were kept and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes hardly one or two could find their own balloon.  So many were muttering what a foolish task they did.

Speaker then asked each one to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. In less than five minutes everyone had their own balloon in hand and a smile on the face.
The speaker began--- Exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for 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. Helping others is not only good for them and a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier too. Giving also connects us to others. It builds a happier society for everyone.

Giving is  not all about money - we can also give our time, ideas and energyThe true Art in Giving is to give from the heart without any expectation of a return. True giving comes from the same place inside you as your deepest happiness, that is why selfless giving gives deepest pleasure.
