We are all striving for the perfection of life.  We want perfect love, perfect understanding, perfect beauty.  But how do we go about attaining such perfection? What is the secret to the “perfect” life?

What motivates us? What drives us forward? What knowledge bring us closer to our goal? How do we practice the art of living?
