A Course in Miracles Made Easy with Alan Cohen

Meet Alan Cohen

He is a contributing writer for the New York Times #1 bestselling series Chicken Soup for the Soul, and his books have been translated into 32 foreign languages. His work has been featured on, in USA Today, The Washington Post, and 101 Top Experts. He is a featured presenter in the award-winning documentary Finding Joe, illuminating the teachings of renowned mythologist Joseph Campbell. 


A Course In Miracles Made Easy (or Easier)

Alan’s book A Course In Miracles Made Easy was one of the more powerful books I’ve read in that he explains the deep meaning and lessons of the course. In this interview, we got to the heart of why this channeled work has transformed millions of lives. Because so many wise words were shared in this conversation, I will share my favorites with you below. A suggestion is to start with A Course In Miracles workbook and take it one page (and day) at a time. 


Favorite takeaways:

  1. There is only one lesson, and that is that everything is a choice between love and fear. Ask yourself, then, what would the voice of love say here? 
  2. A miracle is a shift in perspective. Even a little willingness can start a miracle. 
  3. The spirit within me loves to hear the truth about itself. We are meant to be happy and are always worthy.
  4. We live in a world of illusion. The world we live in is a construct of false ideals, and I’m affected only by my thoughts.
  5. The power of love is the healing force in the Universe.
  6. When you feel stuck or in fear, ask: “Please help me see this differently!”
  7. Anger is fear under pressure. All negative emotions (jealousy, depression, despair, anger, etc.) are connected to fear. To get to the root level, ask yourself, “What’s under the anger?”
  8. Fear is never justified in any form. Fear is not real. When afraid, you are responding to some illusion.
  9. If I trust, fear can’t survive. 
  10.  Trust is the bedrock and our greatest teacher. 


And lastly, I loved this one as well — “Fear knocked at the door, faith answered and no one answered.”


The Spirit and The Ego

May you remember to decipher your spirit vs ego voice. Do this by asking yourself: What does the voice of fear/ego say? What does the voice of love say? Notice which feels better, and you will soon see how powerful the voice of love is. There is nothing you can do not to be loved by God. You are perfect, divine and always loved.
