Contrary to popular belief, we zen kitties do enjoy books, especially lying on them while the humans are attempting to read. Though they get grumpy about it, we are actually doing them a great service as most books tend to fill their minds with yet more concepts and ideas. Our presence can be just the thing to jolt them back into the present moment of awareness.
Recently however I allowed them to continue their evening reading unmolested as I was pleasantly surprised to find them enjoying this book.
Written by Eckhart Tolle it’s a celebration of the simplicity, love and simple reminders to be where you are now that we animals so selflessly gift to our human friends.
There are a few too many dogs in it for my liking but the author obviously knows what he is talking about, quite unusual for a human I must say.
I recommend everyone read it and feel suitably humbled in the presence of their animal companions.
