  • 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?

    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.

Eckhart Tolle from “Guardians of Being”

Frankly, I dare anyone to read this book and not have at least one belly laugh at best or several wide grins at worst (as if that's really a "worst"!). I read Guardians of Being yesterday, and I can honestly say that joy and stillness overflowed from within. My 10-year-old son wanted to know what I was chuckling about, so after I was done reading the book, he read it! (And he actually erupted into laughter several times.)
