A fellow Zen practitioner introduced me to John Gray when I was wondering what to do with my life to make it more meaningful. He suggested Straw Dogs which is a must read for anyone wanting to clear their mind of the many conditionings that we carry with us through life. Feline Philosophy is a nice follow up to Straw Dogs in that it is shorter, more personal and again very much focused on bringing the reader back to a life without meaning but one that is lived fully in the moment. Great mix of philosophy and cat stories well told without being stodgy. Get it, read it, purr.
