Depending on who you are both of these names might be familiar. Tolle is a prolific spiritual writer and McDonnell is the artist for Mutts comic.
They teamed up to produce this delightful little book. I did get this as a gift for someone and from a club at reduced rates. I think I would have balked otherwise. Still, I love it and next time I get an offer from the club might get myself a copy to keep and reread when times get rough. Oct 09, Tami rated it it was amazing. We could learn a lot from our pets.

Jun 01, lita rated it it was amazing Shelves: True happiness is found in simple, seemingly unremarkable things, But to be aware of little, quiet things, you need to be quiet inside A high degree of alertness is required.

I cried several times because it is poignant, wonderful and true. It is a great coffee table book, or a book to read when you are feeling unsupported.
Instead of being so intense with Eckart Tolle just talking about spirit, it is lightened up with the cartoons from Patrick McDonnell. THis is a book I will cherish forever, and quote frequently. The world is better because this book exists. You guardinas sense yourself in them, the essence of who you are.

You could say God. There is a term, a Christian term which is beautiful I love Eckhart Tolle’s writings, and paired with the illustrations of Patrick McDonnell, this eckhrat is absolutely perfect.
It discusses how we should be more like animals. They simply l guadrians are ultimately not separate, not from one another nor from any living thing – the flower, the tree, the cat, the dog. They simply live in the moment, the now, and they never worry about the small day-to-day problems like us humans do.
All of us worry, worry, worry our lives away. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be.
This book is a quick read, with amazing illustrations, and the blurbs written speak volumes. Highly recommended for anyone spiritual, and even those who are not would probably enjoy this greatly written book. Jan 05, Pamela Kramer rated it it was amazing. The iconic drawings of Patrick McDonnell of Mutts and the thoughts that Eckhart Tolle creates to accompany them are truly delightful.
They keep millions of people sane. One of the joys of walking your dog is that often people come up to you and immediately their hearts open. They are not interested in you, of course. They want to pat your dog. Walk a dog through a park and children will surround it. They won’t even notice the person at the end of the leash — it’s all about the dog. And that’s fine with the dog.

Chris brought this book home from the library yesterday and I just sat down to thumb through it and found myself sucked in.
It’s a quick read, but one you’ll want to go through more than once. And I’ve always loved the words of Eckhart Tolle, despite my knee-jerk reaction to the word “God. Oct 02, Susan Faith rated it it was amazing. I absolutely LOVE this little book. I picked it up on vacation at the Outer Banks a few years ago and keep it out where I can grab it at anytime to be renewed. Anyone with a pet should also have this book in their company.
Even people without pets should have ecknart. It is like a literary version of a snuggle pillow. Sep 05, Doni rated it it was amazing. Eckhart Tolle is one heing my favourite modern day philosophers, and this book which touches on the irrefutable value pets and nature have in our lives, really hits home. Sep 07, EThayer3 rated it liked it. I trid to read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle because I heard it was one of those life changing books but honestly, I couldn’t oc past the first chapter, it was dreadfully difficult and full of stuff that made no sense.
It looked cute with the cartoonish drawings and easy reading.
I take this book to be the children’s version of The Power of Now but for adults. Yes, this one was much easier to understand and quite enjoyable. But I trid to read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle because I heard it was one of those life changing books but honestly, I couldn’t get past the first chapter, it was dreadfully difficult and full of stuff that made no sense.
But as far as making my life better, no help there.
Guardians of Being : Eckhart Tolle :
He talks about how happy dogs and cats are because they are living in the moment and we need to more aware of what is going on now, like the rustle of leaves and the quiet of raindrops and then we, too, will be happy as the bees flitting from one flower to the next. That would be great if I had a billion dollars and didn’t have to work and could spend bing day with a good book in the back yard smelling the flowers and feeling bing sunlight tickle my feet.
But I don’t live a dogs life. I would love to have the life he talks about but I have to work for a living and can’t squeeze it all in. I give the book 4 stars for cuteness, ease of reading and making good points and 2 stars for giving real helpful information, averaging out to a
