Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge.

As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she dyign been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she had been a little girl.

Dying to Be Me Quotes by Anita Moorjani

First, the book feels hastily written, and I wonder if the story would have been better told by a ghost writer rather than Moorjani herself. The book relies heavily on summary and “telling” over showing, and I yearned for more scenes and fewer abstract adjectives describing Moorjani’s emotions. The book als Although Moorjani’s healing is certainly miraculous and there are aspects of her story that I found both fascinating and moving, ultimately I couldn’t fully embrace this book for two reasons.


Ahita book also antia repetitive as Moorjani explains, and then re-explains, some of the insights she’s discovered after her NDE. Although I appreciate these insights, they would have been more powerful had Moorjani’s personal story leading up to the NDE been better told. My other problem had to do with the sweeping theological mootjani philosophical generalizations Moorjani makes as a result of her experience. I’m not necessarily doubting her honesty — ahita a chance that what happened to her was real — but some of her conclusions seem more appropriate to her own life experience and the issues that she had to personally work through, and shouldn’t be extrapolated to apply to the totality of human existence.

She was blessed to live View all 4 comments. Apr 13, Laurie rated it it was amazing. She recovered from stage four cancer after her NDE. I could not put this book down and want to always have it near to remind me of what is important. Here are some of her main points: Every time you beat yourself up, you create so much pain for yourself and others.

Love yourself no matter what for no reason other than because you are here. Spend time connecting with your inner self. Approval of others is unimportant. We need to follow our own heart. Let the answers come from within.

Anita Moorjani – Wikipedia

We are true love. Being love is being ourselves. It is the same. It is important to leave yourself open to all possibilities and be willing to suspend belief and disbelief and sit with uncertainty. Needing certainty is a hindrance to experiencing greater levels of awareness.

Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

Being instead of doing works with universal energy instead of against it. Just be and allow and everything will fall into place. Don’t deny your feelings. Embrace them all and allow them to flow through you. Embrace your ego too. What you resist persists. Trying to control your thoughts or your emotions through “positive thinking” will not work. There is no need to fear food. Eat what you love and enjoy it. Every part of you is perfect. You are already everything you are meant to be.


You don’t have to forgive or let go to attain anything. Humor and laughter are so important. They are more healing than anything else. Don’t take yourself and your problems too seriously. The after life is not better than earth. Live fully in the present moment. When you let go of fear and love yourself unconditionally, you touch the lives of everyone around you because we are all connected. It is not new information, but it is easy to forget as we get caught up in our day to day lives.

Anita is very clear that what works for her may not work for everyone. She is not asking anyone to agree with her.

She is simply stating what worked for her–how she recovered from cancer and is having a wonderful, fulfilling life. I am so grateful to Anita for writing this book and for the powerful message that she brings.

Oct 27, Kenny rated it it was ok Shelves: Another person’s spiritual experience is never much use to me; its personal nature makes it extremely subjective. And that’s okay because that is the nature of personal spiritual experiences: But here we have a book written by someone who attempts to draw broad, universal conclusions from her very personal experience. As such, I think many of those conclusions are laughably suspect: I just pay attention to whatever feels right at the time.

But the minute it starts to be hard work or feel like a means of controlling your emotions or thoughts, it probably won’t work very well for you. I can’t say this strongly enough, but our feelings about ourselves are actually the most important barometer for determining the condition of our lives!

In other words, being true to ourselves is more important than just trying to stay positive! It’s more important about how I’m feeling about myself while I’m having this day or week. It only feeds into the same judgmental energy that’s causing problems in the first place since it stems from the opinion that something is wrong and needs to be changed. Instead, letting go of attachment to any way of believing or thinking has made me feel more expanded and almost transparent so that the universal energy can just flow through me.

More possible coincidences happen in my life when I’m in this state of allowing. Again, without judging the truth of her claims that she went into a hospital to die of cancer, had an NDE and woke up knowing she was cancer freeI still have to judge by my own lights the believability of her philosophy.

And to me it sounds like stoner surfer talk. Don’t wait for it, just be, man.
