Alan Cohen > Somebody Needs the Wood

Are we ready to emerge from the dark ages of crucifixion? Is there more to life than putting yourself down so you can put others up? Do you really have to lose to win?

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 > Remember What’s Important

A Course in Miracles tells us that the world we see is inside out and upside down. We value the trivial and overlook the monumental. We are enamored with things and ignore people. We worship at the altar of limitation and forsake our potential. We live disconnected from the worthwhile and then wonder why we are in pain.

Alan Cohen > Humbled and Exalted

Would you mop the floor of someone who defeated you? Probably not. Yet there might be gold in such an experience.

I was honored to meet Morton Lauridsen, a genius musician considered by many to be the world’s greatest living composer of choral music.

Alan Cohen > 2012 - What You Make of It

I have a prediction in which I am quite confident: 2012 will be what you make of it. Your whole life is what you make of it, and 2012 is no exception. Your thoughts, feelings, attitude, words, and actions will determine your experience and the events you attract. What you want and expect to happen will happen. If you are immersed in the Hollywood terror version of 2012, watch out. If you value the upliftment of humanity, transformation will ensue. If you expect just another year, so it will be. Your pen is scribing the novel of your world. What will you write?

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 > The Jewel in the Lotus

I was coaching a woman who was stuck in the process of getting her website posted. When I asked her what was the hardest piece for her, she answered that it was the “About Me” page.

Alan Cohen > Getting Sober

I recently learned of the death of a musician I admire. Ruud was a trombonist in André Rieu’s orchestra. Besides being a talented musician, he was something of a comic spark plug, performing clever antics in skits the orchestra wove into their performances.

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.
