Best Spirituality Book for Depression: Guardians of Being by Eckhart Tolle

Tolle is known for his quote about cats: “I’ve lived with many Zen masters, all of them cats.” Maybe that’s why his publishers got him together with the artist who did his children’s book and matched his quotes about animals and nature to sweet little drawings.

I can’t say that this book will rid anyone of depression, but it’s very short, and well worth checking out. It’s a children’s book for adults. And hey, sometimes we need that.

Sometimes, we just need to keep it simple.


Can this book help me overcome depression?

A bit. It’s a short book, but if you take it seriously enough, you will learn something.

Does it address depression specifically?


What does it say that can help?

It’s basically about how to be as happy as an animal.

The quote I love best, that pretty much sums up the book’s message, is: “It’s so wonderful to watch an animal, because an animal has no opinion about itself.”


To what degree do you think it can help me overcome depression?

Depression effectiveness rating: 4 on a scale of 1-10
