Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. In my life, I have been guilty of holding "Perfect Happiness," out in the future as the illusive goal. I hope I have come to a point of realising that happiness, or better contentment, is a question of going inward. It is perfect happiness to realise that perfect happiness was there all along.
