Guardians of Being by Eckhart Tolle
Illustrator: Patrick McDonnell
Hardcover: 128 pages
Publisher: New World Library; Illustrated edition (October 1, 2009)
This wonderfully unique collaboration brings together two masters of their fields, joining original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. Every heartwarming page provokes thought, insight, and smiling reverence for all beings and each moment.
More than a collection of witty and charming drawings, the marriage of Patrick McDonnell’s art and Eckhart Tolle’s words conveys a profound love of nature, of animals, of humans, of all life-forms. Guardians of Being celebrates and reminds us of not only the oneness of all life but also the wonder and joy to be found in the present moment, amid the beauty we sometimes forget to notice all around us.
This is a very calming book. It is full of messages of how everyday interactions with our pets can be the best part of our day.
It teaches us to live in the present like our pets do. They don’t dwell on the past, they live in the moment. We can make a habit of enjoying our pets, nature, and the people in our lives and to push the negative thoughts from our minds.
I loved the illustrations by Patrick McDonnell!
I’m a dog lover and I very much try to live my life calmly, and I enjoyed this book very much.
