Dr. Cousens’ Blog
We live in an age of headlines and soundbites. The internet is packed full of information but typically runs low on wisdom. This is the reason I write such long and comprehensive blogs. My work is becoming known for its in depth analysis of today’s issues. My articles are repeated attempts to provide people with a substantial understanding of the issues at hand, and the wisdom to know how to address these issues in their personal lives. I typically provide an article summary, which distills the main points for those in a hurry. While some people think in soundbites, I tend to think in chapters and books. My approach is holistic, and, as such, requires that I present both a spiritual and a scientific overview in my ongoing mission of merging the heavens and the earth. As a scientist, a medical doctor, and an artist of consciousness, providing my readers with the option for depth is my way of serving humanity.

In ancient times anyone entering the Promised Land was confronted with a very powerful statement between two markers. On one marker were blessings. On the other marker there were curses. One got to choose between life and death. Having just spent 40 years in the desert, the children of Israel now had to choose. Free will choice is the distinguishing mark between being free and being a slave. Slaves don’t have free will choices. Free will is a gift that we have for our spiritual evolution. Sometimes people come from the place of ego when they are promoting free will choice, and, yet, free will […]Read More

Kundalini is the power of consciousness. As Muktananda poetically describes it, “She is the supreme creative power of the Absolute Being. . . .Dwelling in the center of the universe, she holds it together and maintains it. Similarly . . . she dwells at the center of the human body, in the Muladhara chakra (first chakra) and controls and maintains our whole physiological system through its network of 72,000 nadis . . . she makes everything work in our bodies . . . our mind, senses, power of motion.” Another term for Kundalini energy is prana. In Yoga, the term […]Read More
Safe Solutions for Childhood Depression In our culture of sedation and junk food, depression among children is on the rise. The fastest-growing market for antidepressant drugs is among preschoolers. At least four percent of the nation’s preschool-age children—over one million of them—are clinically depressed. This is a sobering statistic, considering the damaging effect that antidepressant drugs have on psycho-social-spiritual development. The good news is that both movement and living nutrition are highly effective for the prevention and the treatment of depression. It is common for children and adults to feel more uplifted and energized on live foods. On this healthy […]Read More

Koach Mah means “Power of What”. Let’s begin with what we eat and see how that affects our consciousness. For thousands of years we have known about the optimal diet for spiritual life. The ancient rishis, 2,000-3,000 years ago; the Taoist masters; the Torah teaching of Genesis 1:29; the inner core of the Mormon Church, including founder Joseph Smith, all say the same thing. Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but they all say a vegan, live food diet is the most optimal for spiritual life. Let’s take a look at other diets. The Ayurvedic tradition talks about spiritual life and […]Read More
Earth Day April 22, 2016 Environmental and Ecosystem Health Our ecosystems are greatly affected by what we eat. Up to 80 percent of the grains and 50 percent of the fish are used to grow the billions of enslaved animals enough so they can be slaughtered. The estimates are that the amount of land, grain, water, and pollution involved to feed one human on a meat-based diet could feed fifteen on a plant-based diet. About 6,000 square miles of land are cleared every year to grow livestock—that’s about 10,000 acres a day. It is just overwhelming what we are doing. […]Read More
