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 > Last Year’s Birds and This Year’s Nest

With the advent of the Internet and Facebook, I’ve had lots of people from my past find me and reach out to connect. Some from as far back as elementary school, high school, and college.

Alan Cohen > Real Security

Real security operates at a much deeper level than people who stand at the doors of banks and airports.

Alan Cohen > The Vampire Strikes Back

What’s up with the rash of vampire and zombie movies that has pervaded books, theaters, and television of late?

Alan Cohen > Good Enough To Be True

When I began to teach classes on spiritual principles, I devoted some time at the end of each class meeting to pray for students and their loved ones. One woman asked the group to pray for the continued health of her sister, who had had cancer, but the disease was now in remission. At that time I had not heard the term “in remission, so I asked her what it meant.

Alan Cohen > A Critical Gift

You will gain far more by authenticity than by conformity. Conformity is safe but boring; realness is risky but empowering.

Alan Cohen > Who Sent the Ants?

Synchronicity is always working on our behalf, but we are only occasionally aware of it. We cannot plan synchronicities; we just need to get clear on our intention and then be open to signs and guidance.

My coaching client Sara had agreed to a business dinner with a fellow she found quite difficult to work with after she made the appointment. Now, the morning before the dinner, she was looking for a way to get out of it.

Alan Cohen > The World You Prefer

One of my favorite movies is the Truman Show, in which a man has unknowingly been born and raised on a massive TV set on which the entire world watches his life unfold. Eventually Truman begins to discover that the life he has been living is contrived, and he attempts to escape the tiny world in which he is trapped.

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.
