Book Review: Everything You Need You Have by Gerad Kite


Is it true that everything you need, you have?  While reading Gerad Kite’s book you will learn how to look at things in a different perspective as well as living in the present moment.  It’s not about doing more it’s about being more.   Home is where you feel at peace it’s a permanent place inside yourself. This book gives you a ten-step program to find your “calm.”

“Wanting thigs to be a certain way is NOT freedom.”

“Achieving what you set out to do is NOT freedom.”

“Being the person you want to be is NOT freedom.” (Kite, 2016, page 20).


The journey the author takes the reader on beings with admitting you are lost.  You will learn how to use a pendulum.  What is a Pendulum?   A pendulum is a weight suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely.   To find your true rest means getting your thoughts and actions away from chaos in the physical world and even your thoughts in your mind.  One way to get back to calm is to make a list of the activities you know will bring you back to a happy state of mind.  Extreme highs and lows are what you choose to do with your state of mind which is a manifestation of a mood or thought at a particular time in a particular place but they have little to do with “you.” When you take away all the labels we have been programmed to be, we are all the same, “a person.” What we all learn from Mr. Kite is the ten steps to find your natural rhythms, view your emotions from a different perspective, and finally experience a state of bliss that you can return over and over. “I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”  @ 2016 Jackie Paulson
