"Guardians of Being" is a heartwarming, new and original Eckhart Tolle book honoring pets that pairs his spiritual quotes with charming, sweet illustrations by the creator of the "MUTTS" comic strip.

The enchanting and whimsical collaboration celebrates Tolle's and McDonnell's love for animals, nature, and the energy of life around us, and it is also a gentle reminder of how just "being" and enjoying the beauty of "now" can bring us happiness and peace.  Here, we offer a selection of Eckhart Tolle quotes and Patrick McDonnell cartoon illustrations from "Guardians of Being."
