Guardians of Being

The Essence and Being of Animals

Guardians of Being by Eckhart Tolle and Patrick McDonnell

What is it that so many people
find enchanting in animals?
Their essence — their Being — is not
covered up by the mind, as it is in most humans.

And whenever you feel that essence in another,
you also feel it in yourself.
