See a shadow; try chasing it. What happens when you do so? The shadow moves farther away from you. Now turn around and walk a few steps. As soon as you do so, the shadow will start following you. The same is the case with happiness. Very often, people think that happiness is about chasing what we want till we get it. But unfortunately that is just a whim. The more mindlessly you will go after things, the further they will move away. Why? Because as soon as you achieve something, instead of feeling contented, you start craving for something else. And thus the chase never ends. Realize this fact and stop chasing. Turn around and try making others happy. As you do so, like a shadow, happiness will follow you too. Try it today!
