The Power of What We Eat

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 […]

Vegetarian Diet and Health

The following article is from Spiritual Nutrition, Six Foundations for Spiritual Life and the Awakening of Kundalini, Gabriel Cousens, M.D. From a Biblical perspective, veganism (a diet free of flesh, dairy, and eggs) was given as the dietary key to spiritual life right at the beginning of the Torah in Genesis 1:29: “Then God said, ‘I give you every seed- bearing plant on the face of the whole Earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” Ten generations later, when Noah was leaving the ark after the great flood and there was […]

The Light of Live Foods

Live Foods The Spiritual Nutrition diet is a special type of spiritual vegan diet aimed at helping us transcend body consciousness, clean the koshas, calm the vrittis of the mind, clear the nadis, and expand the prana. For this reason, Spiritual Nutrition is more disciplined than a regular vegetarian diet, generally lighter, and includes Spiritual Fasting and the taking of primarily live foods (uncooked roots, leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds). These are called the food of the rishis (sages) or ancient Yogis, as well as the probable diet of the Essenes. Live foods are raw and uncooked foods, naturally […]

The History And Future Of Veganism

A small group of people argue that human beings were originally hunter-gatherers who evolved eating the flesh of animals.  This is a self-serving myth that is simply historically inaccurate.  This mythical view implies that human evolution began with the ice age (20,000 years ago), when meat-eating became temporarily essential for survival.  This relatively recent time period is not the point of historical origin for humans on the planet, but it was a dark passage, in which our survival needs eclipsed our compassion and empathy. The human ancestor called “Lucy” (Australopithecus afarensis) is believed to have walked the earth 3.2 million […]

Gabriel’s Open Letter To Dr. Mercola

Dear Dr. Mercola, Thank you for your excellent, thoughtful, and sensitive discussion on vegetarianism and the China study.  I have been researching and exploring the benefits of a plant-source-only diet for over 38 years (since 1973).  Given the length of my practice and the scope of my experience, I have come to some working conclusions on the interrelated topics of diet, health, and longevity. I am writing this for the people who have become confused by your subtle, but clear avocation for a meat-centered diet over a plant-source-only diet, as they are tentatively inspired to shift from one paradigm of health […]
