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.”

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.
In this book there is a brilliant tool for teaching meditation to children (actually, I use it myself sometimes): "Close your eyes and say to yourself: "I wonder what my next thought is going to be." Then become as alert as a cat watching a mouse hole. You may find that, as long as you are absolutely alert, the next thought does not arise...."
The final pages of this book brought me to tears. I won't spoil the surprise.
My son and I continue to read and talk about this book together. In my son's words; "It's spiritual and funny at the same time. I really like it."
"Guardians of Being" is one of the most enjoyed and most valuable books on my children's bookcase. Two more that I highly recommend are "Zen Shorts" and "The Three Questions, Based on a story by Leo Tolstoy," both by Jon J Muth.
