Alan Cohen > To Boldly Go

Two different people live in your mind: One is an engineer calculating odds and risks according to known science. The other is the voice of passion, intention, and spirit, prone to take leaps of faith beyond known science.

Alan Cohen > Somebody to Love

I had a nasty neighbor who regularly picked fights over all kinds of issues. People drove too fast past her rural home; her neighbors partied too loud; vandals were supposedly stealing from her water line; trees encroached on her property line; and on and on. 

Alan Cohen > Why the Holidays Don’t Matter

For the many years I’ve been writing this column, I conclude each year with an inspirational message about the importance of the holidays. This year I would like to take a different approach.

Alan Cohen > The Truth about Fairy Tales

I received a letter from Malaysia informing me that the deceased King of Iran wants me to inherit his royal fortune. All I need to do to claim it is send money to an anonymous post office box in England to pay the lawyers who will release the funds to those who have faith in the windfall.

Alan Cohen > The Pharaoh Chewed Juicy Fruit

The game of life is won by finding beauty and good wherever we go, no matter what opinion or appearances would indicate. Free will means that we may choose our viewing point on the universe and live in the world our view has generated.

Alan Cohen > Where to Find True Love

February is Valentine’s month, when we celebrate great love. If you are searching for love, it may be closer than you think. Kabir said, “I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.”

Alan Cohen > A Happy Outcome is Assured

Can you imagine being an adopted child reunited with your birth mother after 60 years?  My friend Diane signed up for a genealogy research service, did a DNA test, and found that she had a cousin unknown to her family.

Alan Cohen > Identity Theft

As I read my credit card statement, my eyes bulged. I was being billed for two $5,000 cash advances I had not taken. Then there was a clothing shopping spree in Dallas.  Someone had stolen my credit card information and went to town on it.

Alan Cohen > Your Secret Stash

While we might be inclined to define relationships by what we say to each other, they are more accurately defined by what we don’t say to each other.

 

Alan Cohen > A Heartbeat to Remember

One day all of our hearts will stop beating, but while they still pulse we would do well to count them all as precious. Every heartbeat represents God’s intention that you have a purpose in the world and a reason to be alive. While many of us believe we are here to achieve a notable act or make lots of money, our real mission is based on the quality of our relationships.
