and soul are not two different things,
but only two different ways of perceiving the same thing.
Similarly, physics and psychology are only different attempts
to link our perceptions together
by way of systematic thought."
We worry plenty about keeping our body healthy.
But what our emotions?
The LiveReal Psychology Arena is about living in the struggles, trials, and challenges of life, and keeping your sanity intact.
It's about inner freedom - from the grip of fear, anxiety, anger, depression, doubt, confusion, worry, and other emotions - and living with confidence, clarity, inner strength, and honest, no-bull, happiness.
It's the search for sanity, clarity, and peace of mind:
understanding who has it, who doesn't have it, why, and how we can find it.
It's about arming and empowering you
with practical, no-nonsense, street-smart tools
to help you find real sanity, clarity, and peace of mind
in a crazy world.
That is our goal here.

would fain be great and sees that he is little;
would fain be happy and sees that he is miserable;
would fain be perfect and sees that he is full of imperfections;
would fain be the object of the love and esteem of men,
and sees that his faults merit only their aversion and contempt.
The embarrassment wherein he finds himself produces in him
the most unjust and criminal passions imaginable,
for he conceives a mortal hatred
against that truth
which blames him
and convinces him of his faults."
