and comic strip artist Patrick McDonnell...A book to make you wriggle
O, The Oprah Magazine
A lovely meditation on the power and grace animals bring to our lives.
Beautiful, thought-provoking, and enlightening...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?”
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.”
Praise for Eckhart Tolle:
He is a prophet for our time.”

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.
