Seeker went to the Guru. Guru was sitting under the tree which is his permanent residence.
"I am not happy. Where can I find happiness?"
"Happiness is everywhere."
"How can I find happiness?"
Guru smiled. "Simple. There are so many ways. Helping others is one."
"But I don't get chances to help others."

Guru smiled. "Just recall the past. Haven't you helped anyone?"
After deep thinking the seeker said, "No."
" No. "
"Day before yesterday?"
" No. " The seeker said with a sad face .
"But today you have helped two human beings."
The seeker looked at the Guru with confusion.

"You have helped yourself by seeking the way for happiness and you have helped me to help you to find happiness ." The Guru said with a big grin.

The seeker returned with happiness in mind.
