In All We Have Is All We Need, Karen Casey's classic and simple wisdom is condensed into one- and two-sentence statements - road signs to lead us away from trouble, chaos, and drama and toward peace in our everyday lives. Casey, the founding foremother of daily meditation books for women, offers something different and unique here, something especially suited to the state of mind and heart that might be considered the opposite of peaceful.

Frequently when we find ourselves in turmoil, we cannot concentrate. What we need is a simple, true message to hold on to for dear life. And, at other times, when crisis doesn't loom quite so large, we can still find comfort in going back to the basics, Casey's simple statements that serve us well.

Organized into six sections, this book provides the wisdom to know that we have within us everything we need to lead a peaceful, balanced life - or the wherewithal to find it.

Sections include:

    * On the Path with Others: Relationships, Forgiveness and Amends
    * When Walking Away Is Wise: Letting Go, Acceptance, Powerlessness, Surrender
    * The Choices We Make: Fear, Choice, Acting As If
    * What We See Changes Us: Lesson, Change, Perspective
    * Day by Day: Peace, Moment, Kindness
    * We're Not Alone: Love, Wisdom, Prayer, God, and Listening

Each section includes nearly 60 statements, 365 in all. It can be read a bit each day or opened to the section you seem to need most. Find one and let it be your mantra, repeating it through the day.

This small book offers immense wisdom. It is the perfect companion to get you back on track when your equilibrium is threatened or you need a reminder to live in harmony.
