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.

February is the month of Valentines when our thoughts turn to love. Usually, we give Valentines gifts and affection to romantic partners. This month I would like to shift our focus to expressions of love to our family, in particular, our parents.

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 > Where Healing Lives

As Mark recounted this story, I recognized the distinction between a doctor and a healer. A doctor treats symptoms. A healer treats the soul. Mark’s commitment to the well-being of his nephew and his wife went far beyond fixing the man’s body. His intention was to soothe their souls.

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 > The Witch Doctor’s Secret

In rural West Bengal, India, many people harbor the strange belief that if they have been bitten by a dog, they have become pregnant with its puppies. The fearful victims run to a witch doctor, who administers yogurt and herbs and tells them they are no longer pregnant.
