review 1: I trid to read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle because I heard it was one of those life changing books but honestly, I couldn't get past the first chapter, it was dreadfully difficult and full of stuff that made no sense. I piced up Guardians of Being at a used booksale for only $1.00. It looked cute with the cartoonish drawings and easy reading. I take this book to be the children's version of The Power of Now but for adults.Yes, this one was much easier to understand and quite enjoyable. But as far as making my life better, no help there. He talks about how happy dogs and cats are because they are living in the moment and we need to more aware of what is going on now, like the rustle of leaves and the quiet of raindrops and then we, too, will be happy as the bees ... moreflitting from one flower to the next.That would be great if I had a billion dollars and didn't have to work and could spend all day with a good book in the back yard smelling the flowers and feeling the sunlight tickle my feet. But I don't live a dogs life. I would love to have the life he talks about but I have to work for a living and can't squeeze it all in. I give the book 4 stars for cuteness, ease of reading and making good points and 2 stars for giving real helpful information, averaging out to a 3
review 2: How am I just discovering this book now?! It looks like a simple picture book but is full of profound truths, such as "Love is a deep empathy with the other's 'beingness.' You recognize yourself, your essence, in the other. And so you can no longer inflict suffering on the other" and "Every bring is a spark of the Divine or God. Look into the eyes of the dog and sense that innermost core", accompanied by the most adorable little drawings by the illustrator of the Mutts comic. Absolutely brilliant and a must-read for every animal-lover. less
