"Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being. Let it teach you integrity -- which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real. Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem."
--Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A guide to spiritual enlightenment (1999), p. 157
