Eckhart Tolle has always been one of my absolute spiritual thinkers and teachers. Years ago I was lucky enough to attend a lecture he gave in Toronto. It was as mind-expanding as you would imagine.
Enjoy this compilation of some of his quotes about life with dogs. To learn more visit: Eckhart Tolle
Thought subsides when you pet your dog or you have a purring cat on your chest. Even just watching an animal can take you out of your mind. It is more deeply connected with the source of life than most humans, and that rootedness in Being transmits itself to you. Millions of people who otherwise would be completely lost in the conceptual reality of their mind are kept sane by living with an animal.
Guardians Of Being is Eckhart Tolle's book illustrated by the author of Mutts, Patrick MsDonnell. This book is described as follows:
"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."
