Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig is a novel that is meant to both entertain and enlighten. The narrator takes a cross-country motorcycle trip where the maintenance of the motorcycle becomes an illustration of how we can unify the cold, rational realm of technology with the warm, imaginative realm of artistry. Eastern philosophy is coupled with Western philosophy, reminding us to become one with the activities that we are pursuing, to engage fully, to see and appreciate all of the details…to be mindful and present when we are hiking, eating, or tightening the chain on a motorcycle.

Guardians of Being is a loving and joyous book, which reminds us to enjoy the beauty of the moment and everything that surrounds us.
