At any time, I can simply declare myself to be “perfect.”
I would be correct.
What is the definition of “perfect?” How would you know when you were “there?” More importantly, doesn’t it change with time? Weren’t there moments in your past that you thought were “perfect” but would no longer be considered so today?
Since it’s such a variable term and it’s so transient, it’s certainly possible that you are already there. You might as well enjoy your perfection.
