Gaur Gopal Das tells a story of a rich lady who goes to a happiness counselor and complained that her life was empty without any meaning. The counselor patiently heard her out and called the old lady who used to clean the office floors.
And he asks the old lady where she finds her happiness, the lady said, when my husband died of malaria and my son was killed in a car accident my life meaningless. She wasn’t able to sleep and forgot the art of smiling.
She even thought of ending her life, but one day as she was walking on the road she saw a kitten and felt sorry for the kitten because it was cold she took the kitten in the house and gave it some milk.
The kitten enjoyed it, by seeing this the lady said I felt smile for the first time after so many years. She wondered if just helping a kitten can make me smile then doing something for people in need could make me happy as well.
The next day she started helping people, doing this made her happy. The lady found her happiness by giving it to others.
