O, The Oprah Magazine
A lovely meditation on the power and grace animals bring to our lives.”
The gentle humor and profound insight found in this book thoughts such as 'Allow your dog to take you for a walk every day. It's good for the body and it's good for the soul' make it the perfect gift for animal lovers of all ages.”
Eckhart Tolle and Patrick McDonnell fans will rejoice over Guardians of Being, the combined effort of these bestselling authors. This beautiful, thought-provoking, and enlightening book pairs Tolle's 'Power of Now' mindfulness with McDonnell's beloved MUTTS characters, showing how we can find 'true happiness in simple, seemingly unremarkable things' by simply being present, a state that our dogs naturally occupy. The skillful use of the MUTTS animals to illustrate Tolle's theme renders his philosophy into easily grasped concepts. This thoroughly charming book deserves a place on your coffee table. While you're at it, why not pick up a copy for your best friend, too?”
"This is a book likely to speak to dog lovers, cat lovers, art lovers, spiritual seekers, those who like to read, those who don't like to read, and pretty much anyone interested in the art of life."
The Christian Science Monitor
Praise for Eckhart Tolle:
He is a prophet for our time.”
O, The Oprah Magazine
Praise for MUTTS:
One of the best comic strips of all time.”
Charles Schulz, Peanuts creator

I think I will read this once a week. It will be good for my soul.
When my son was a child, before he could read on his own, he used to want several books, his favorites, read to him every day. His special favorites would need to be read more than once a day. Most people do not re-read books every day. However, due to my son, I learned to appreciate how good it could be to read or listen to a book you love often. It never pales. Sometimes, one gets new insights. My son is grown up now. I miss reading together.
I cringed a bit at the parts about God/Divine/Christian references, because I think that these messages apply even beyond those beliefs and traditions, and it could have been more universal. (I believe more in a sense of Oneness than any Divine creator.) Nevertheless, the messages about taking our guidance from our pets makes so much sense and is such excellent advice.
Of course, the hard part will be to follow and live it. But hopefully with mindful practice ....

If you know and love the work of Eckhart Tolle, you may well find yourself thinking that 'Guardians of Being' is the best thing he ever did. If you've never heard of him but have experienced the feelings that your cat or dog bring to you with their spontaneity, love and faithfulness then you'll probably love this book too.
There seem to be trillions of 5 star reviews everywhere for this book: it's like it works for everyone, everywhere. My three extra copies should arrive tomorrow. I have homes for two of them and I'm relishing thinking of who will get the third.
I am very pleased with this book and I think we will be reading it for a long time yet.
