Balloon Exercise: Our Happiness is with others

Everyone wants to find happiness in life. No matter what our circumstances, and no matter what hand we are dealt, the search for true contentment is at the heart of everyone’s goals.

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 and 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 one’s name on it using a pen. All the balloons were then collected and taken to an another room.

Now, these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes.

Everyone was frantically searching for their name, pushing, colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos.

No one could find their balloons within the given five minute time and they all had to return to the other room empty handed.

Then they were told to go to the other room 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 speaker began: This is exactly 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.
