Guardians of Being



Because dogs and cats still live in the original
state of connectedness with Being, they can
help us regain it. When we do so, however,
that original state deepens
and turns into awareness.


When you pet a dog or listen to a cat purring, thinking may subside for a moment and a space of stillness arises within you, a doorway into Being.

You just watch the tail...with some dogs you just look at them--just a little look is enough--and their tail goes... `Life is good! Life is good!' And they are not telling themselves a story of why life is good. It's a direct realization. 

My favorite author Eckhart Tolle is back with a new, heartwarming book called Guardians of Being. The book pairs up Tolle's profoundly life changing spiritual teachings and Patrick McDonnell's (creator of Mutts comic strip) charming illustrations. I look forward to adding this book to my Eckhart Tolle book collection soon.
You can take a peek at some Guardians of Being wisdom here. Happy Wednesday!
