Psychology is a force that impacts every one of us. We are all in some way dealing with struggles of the human condition. Being alive means we are dealing with the vicissitudes — ups and downs, twists and turns — and many complexities of life’s journey.
Hence, the trillion dollar therapy and medicinal industries, serving us for good or for bad.
But what exactly is psychology? The actual definition of psychology is: the study of the soul. Yet, what exactly is a soul? Did you know that there are over 45 different psychological schools of thoughts? from Fraud, to Watson, to Adler, Jung, Frankl, from the cognitive to the behavioral, and everything in between, over and under. New opinions and novel approaches are continuously being introduced. Clearly, the true nature of the human psyche remains shrouded in mystery and continues to elude us mortals.
So how are we to make sense of all the different — and often opposing — opinions about something so critical: the understanding of who we are? How can we make heads or tails and figure out what makes us tick?
You may be surprised to learn that around 250 years ago — a century before the birth of modern psychology — a Russian born mystic and sage developed, what we will call, the most comprehensive psychological blueprint for life. With his keen insight into the very nature of the soul, based on thousands of years of esoteric teachings and hard earned experience, The Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, laid out an intricate roadmap, an x-ray of the human psych. In doing so he integrated the best of all the psychological schools of thought and offers us a revolutionary new model, relevant today more than ever, one that has the ability to guide us into the future.
