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.
~Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D.
At some point in time you have probably heard that diabetes has no cure, just the possibilities of a variety of complications. This is an old belief system backed by many medical professionals and pharmaceuticals who band aid this disease. However, Dr. Cousens has developed the knowledge, clinical know-how, and experience to completely reverse Type-2 diabetes naturally at the Tree of Life Center. “All that is needed is to let go of our belief that diabetes cannot be reversed – then we are free to cultivate the understanding of what is possible”, Dr. Gabriel Cousens Since the 1920’s, live-food nutrition […]Read More
One must love oneself enough to heal oneself. This is very much the foundation of spiritual life and holistic healing. What is it that makes you love yourself in order to heal yourself? First, it’s primarily based on a non-egoic statement articulated by one’s inner experience. A lot of people have lost touch with the full experience of their soul. There are different ways to deal with this, but to connect with your soul there is a path one has to walk in order to reconnect. Not everyone is willing to make the effort to reestablish that connection, so when […]Read More

How much sleep is enough? Individual needs vary but, as a rule of thumb, if you’re tired upon waking, you need more sleep. If you need coffee, caffeinated tea, or cocoa to get you going in the morning, you likely need more sleep. Sleep is essential for the spiritual path, particularly going to bed early and getting up early. The experience of tiredness when adequate hours of sleep are received may be an indication of stressed adrenals or other health concerns. Recent research shows that without sufficient sleep, people have significantly less serotonin in their nervous system. Serotonin creates a […]Read More

Joy plays a very important role in spiritual life. The Torah teaches that one should serve God with joy. When people serve without joy, they don’t receive the benefits of serving. In fact, they sometimes get the downside. What does it mean to serve God with joy? There are different levels of this. The highest level (the sixth level) of the mind is called hiranyamaya kosha. At the level of the hiranyamaya kosha there is a non-causal love. Here there is a natural non-causal joy, natural non-causal peace, natural compassion, and non-causal contentment. What ultimately happens when we are serving – […]Read More
When Ramana Maharshi, one of the most famous Self-realized sages of modern India, was asked what the most important aid to meditation was, he replied a pure vegetarian diet. He quoted the ancient Chandogya Upanishad D II 26.2: “When food is pure, the mind is pure, when the mind is pure, concentration is steady, when concentration is achieved one can loosen all the knots of the heart that bind us.” Yoga tradition, as emphasized by the Chandogya Upanishad, teaches, “The mind is made of food.” It says that the food we take in is divided into three parts: The gross […]Read More

Today I’m speaking about the illusion of the dual and the non-dual awareness. We have different levels of reality that we consciously and unconsciously operate within. We have the gross duality of good and evil, right and wrong. We have another level of duality that says, “Whatever God does is for the best”, which is a part of right and wrong but beyond the gross reality. We have another reality that says, “It doesn’t matter what God has to say, there is nothing separate from God.” This is spoken in the sense that it’s all one; that there’s no right […]Read More
