The old man died the next day. At the crossroads of hell and heaven, he saw the scales: on the left were bad deeds, on the right were good. But surprisingly, the scales were empty.
"It can't be "It can't be true!" exclaimed the surprised man. "I've done so many good things!"
Then he noticed a balloon, the red one, landed on the scales. And the good deeds outweighed the bad. The man was surprised: "I have done so many good deeds, but they are not visible! Why this balloon? Is it good to help a bad person?"
In response, he heard: "You cannot divide people into good and bad, there are only those who have gone astray. Let for a day or for several years, but they always have a chance to return. You also cannot be proud of your good deeds, for they will be nothing. Any good deed done with self-interest loses meaning and just disappears. But giving that red balloon to the girl, you didn't think about yourself, you thought only of the girl. And only that one selfless act saved you from eternal hell."
