The Secret of Happiness
A certain merchant sent his son to meet the smartest person to discover the secret of happiness. The boy travelled through the desert for 40 days until he reached a beautiful castle on a huge rock.
There lived the mage that the boy was looking for.
Our hero walked inside the rock and entered a hall. He expected to meet a saint inside of there. Instead, he spotted numerous merchants that were walking around, a number of people that were talking and enjoying themselves in the corners, a small orchestra that kept playing various beautiful melodies, and a table that contained different kinds of delicacies. The mage had discussions with everyone and our hero waited for two hours until the mage approached him.
The mage patiently listened to the reason of boy’s arrival. Then, the mage told him that he doesn’t have the time to explain to him the secret of happiness. However, he offered the boy to walk around the palace and return in two hours.
“However, I’d like to ask for a favor,“ said the mage and passed him a teaspoon with two drops of oil. “While you’re walking around my palace, carry the spoon in a way so that the oil won’t spill.“
The boy walked up and down the numerous stairs of the palace, not taking his eyes off the spoon. Two hours later he returned to the mage.
“How was it?“ asked the mage. “Did you get to see the Persian carpets in my dining room? Did you visit the garden that my amazing gardener created in ten years? Did you notice the beautiful parchments in my library?“
The embarrassed boy admitted that he saw none of it. His only concern was not to spill the two drops of oil.
“Well, then, go back and take a look at the miracles of my world,“ said the mage. “You can’t trust me if you don’t know my house.“
The boy, this time more calmly, took the spoon and walked through the palace again. This time, however, he examined all the artwork. He saw the gardens, surrounding mountains, and lovely flowers. When he finished the visit, he came back to the mage and told him about everything he saw.
“Where are the two drops of oil that I gave you?“ asked the mage.
The boy looked down at the spoon and realized that he spilled the drops of oil.
“This is the only advice I can give you,“ said the mage, the smartest mage of all mages. “The secret of happiness is that we can admire all the beauties of the world, but still should not forget about the two drops of oil that we have in our spoon.“
