Last week I was raving about Anita Moorjani's book, Dying to Be Me. I found myself highlighting and dog-earing section after section while I was reading. One of the main lessons that she learned from her near-death experience was that we are all part of the One, and are wonderous, luminous beings of love. Given that, one of our main priorities in this life is to acknowledge that and to love ourselves.
Moorjani's upbringing taught her to deny herself and put others first. She found that, after spending her whole life trying to please people and squash her individuality, she was deeply unhappy and did not love or honor herself. She felt that one of the reasons she was given the near death experience (NDE) was to change all that.
Of course, that wasn't all that she received from her NDE. Her body, which was so riddled with cancer that her organs were shutting down, quickly returned to full health and she soon returned home, completely cancer free. She believes that she was given another chance in this life to spread the word about her NDE and what she learned. This books is what resulted. Its message will stay with you a long time.
