Alan Cohen > The Subway Experiment

The flip side of the Law of Attraction is the Law of Repulsion. Actually there is no repulsion; either things match and they stay stuck together or they do not.

Alan Cohen > Get Real

The holiday season offers you many opportunities to get real in the presence of people who fear to get real themselves, and call you to play small with them.

Alan Cohen > Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

A student told her spiritual teacher that she was suffering under “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,” quoting Shakespeare’s famous verse from Hamlet. The teacher looked her piercingly in the eyes and asked, “Are you so sure that fortune is outrageous and it must bear slings and arrows?”

Alan Cohen > The Guru in Your iPod

While watching the documentary film Stephen Jobs, Hippy Billionaire, I was tickled to learn that as a young adult Jobs was significantly influenced by Baba Ram Dass and his book Be Here Now. I also credit Ram Dass as one of the most valued mentors in my life. He led millions of spiritual seekers to higher awareness and is considered by many to be the “Father of the New Age.”

Alan Cohen > Whatever Spirit Wants

You don’t need to manufacture success alone. You are in partnership with the Intelligence and Love that guides the entire Universe.

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. 

Alan Cohen > How I Flunked the Science Fair but Saved the World

In the ninth grade I did a project for the city science fair. It was about photosynthesis. I set up a little lab in my bedroom with colored lights on African Violets. I had no idea what I was doing and I learned nothing. I would rather have been playing baseball.

Alan Cohen > Nothing New Under the Year

As we enter the New Year, we all hope this year will be better than the last one, and new and wonderful things will come to us. We seek to improve our worldly situations and become better people.

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 > Guess Who’s Coming to Christmas Dinner

For a few hours each month, all of these people rise above their social identities and come together as equals on the same playing field. What a model for how good it can get if we let it!
