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.

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

What’s going on in the world today is a reflection of our collective inner world. Our inner world is key. When you don’t understand your inner world, you can’t understand the outer world. One of the biggest tasks on the spiritual realm is the inner/outer balance we create in our own lives. We struggle sometimes between being too easy and being too hard. The Kabbalistic model of the Tree of Life comprises ten sefirotic energies that are essentially a pattern for all creation. What is that pattern that we are talking about? The highest sefirot is keter, which is the […]Read More

The Essenes taught soul power and becoming the depth of who we are. When we follow current events, it appears that many have lost their root and their connection with their soul. Within the last 50 years we can see that the divorce rates have doubled, teen suicides have tripled, crime has quadrupled, the amount of people in jail is 5 times higher, and depression is 10 times higher. The United States is the biggest purveyor and exporter of pornography in the world. Drug use in the United States is highest in the world, and so forth. To me, this […]Read More
When I was on my football team at Amherst College, there was writing on the wall, which said, “You must learn to follow before you can lead”. I remember how important this was. At first, as a starting varsity player as a sophomore, I didn’t even talk. I played hard and did fine and got to the point where I got to be the captain of an undefeated team in my senior year. As captain it was my duty to talk. I was happy not talking, but that was my new role. Years later, when I was in India living […]Read More
