This little gem of a book only takes 10 minutes to read but could change your life if you understand its message and put the principles to work. This book takes the deep teachings of the "Power of Now" and condenses them into a few sentences along with comic artwork from the creator of the comic strip "Mutts". The teachings and principles really touched me deeply. The book teaches us to learn from our pets how to live in the now. Cats and dogs do not stress and worry. They do not have egos. They have no issues from how their mothers treated them when they were kittens or puppies. They just live in the present moment they simply flow with life. They do not over think things and create mental constructs and opinions from which to judge life through, they experience life directly for what it is. Eckhart Tolle writes that he has known many Zen masters, and they were all cats. The book is not about sinking below thought, it is about rising above it. It is about rising above the endless stream of self talk in our minds and experiencing life directly with no filter on our senses. Thoughts are a wonderful tool to use, but they are a terrible master that can consume who we really are. We are not our thoughts, we are the witness of our thoughts. This book can help the real you break free.
