I want to play a trick
Life is a series of choices. If you are happy, that is your choice. If you are miserable, that also is your choice. Happiness is within our reach.
Brahma, the Lord of creation, wanted to play a trick on human beings. Everyone's ultimate objective is to be happy, but by and large he is not quite happy. Therefore, Brahma decided to hide happiness, so that he should find happiness if he searches for it.
A council was held to advise Brahma.
Brahma informed the council of the agenda: `I want to play a trick on Man. Everyone is hunting for happiness and we should hide it in such a way that they should seldom find it.'
some suggested, `bury it deep into the earth'.
But Brahma said, `No, man will dig deep into the earth and find it'.
`Well, we shall sink happiness into the deepest ocean.'
But again Brahma replied, `No, he will eventually explore the depths of every ocean and surely some day find and take it'.
The council concluded, `Then, it seems there is no place on earth or in the sea that man will not reach'.
`Here is what we will do with man's happiness', said Brahma. `We will hide it deep down in man himself, for he will never of looking for it there'.
Life is a series of choices. If you are happy, that is your choice. If you are miserable, that also is your choice. Happiness is within our reach. The moment we realize this simple truth, we will become transformed persons.
