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 > 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 > Twigs and Shout

When Christopher Columbus and his crew were sailing their long and arduous voyage to a world they had heard about but never seen, the sailors grew discouraged.

Alan Cohen > How to Get Santa to Deliver

My Australian client Meg was tired of her corporate job and wished she could create a layoff with a generous severance package. So for fun she wrote herself a severance letter offering her desired package, printed it on company stationery, and signed it from the CEO. This was her idea of creating a treasure map toward her ideal scenario.

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 > 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 > 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 > The Picture and the Frame

The only purpose of a house, car, technological device, or body is to serve as a vehicle for the expression of love. As long as the form is a venue for the spirit, it is useful. When the form ceases to serve the spirit, or the spirit ends up serving the form, the system becomes dysfunctional, it will engender pain, and dissolve.

Alan Cohen > Truth or Sabotage

I work with a rental car agency that gets me good deals. When I began to use the agency I phoned in an order to the owner, who is a friend of mine. When he emailed me the confirmation, I discovered he made an error on the pickup time of the car.I called him back and he corrected it. This happened not just once, but three times.

Alan Cohen > When We’ll All Get There

Gandhi said, “There must be more to life than increasing its speed.” We are addicted to fastness. Yet is the world a better place because we move faster every day?
