Guruji, even though I try hard to make everyone happy even then there is unhappiness all around me. What to do?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

At least you be happy. Don’t lose you happiness even if others are not uplifted by your efforts.

See this world like a dream. Sometimes even in a wakeful state you need to see this world like a dream. Now you are looking at me, is it a dream or truth? Have you ever had this though in your mind?

This could be a dream!

So when you see all events and incidents in life as a dream, then there is a shift in the energy inside you and you feel so contented and strong. Then no matter what the event, you can smile through it. And with the help of devotion and sadhana (practices) this strength comes very naturally to you.
