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.

There’s something happening on the Internet that’s a little strange. It’s about a group of vegans who are putting a lot of hateful statements out to non-vegans. This is totally out of order. As I look at it I ask, “How did this happen?” I have a very long history of veganism. Shanti and I have both been vegan for 33 years, which is an interesting soul mate connection. Obviously, we see veganism as transformative for the world on multiple levels. I have expanded the teaching to holistic veganism. In 1944, Watson talked about ahimsa, which means “do no harm”.

Living in the truth, which is not about […]Read More
