Dying to be Me is one of those rare books that has had such a profound affect on me that it actually changed my life! I have been a student of the NDE for over 30 years...ever since reading Raymond Moody's book, Life After Life. I have also been both a translator of NDEs in Spanish and Portuguese as well as a research associate with the Near Death Experience Research Foundation and have read literally thousands of NDE accounts. Despite all this background and exposure to near-death accounts, when I first came across Anita Moorjani's amazing story, I was positively electrified by her experience and by the power, clarity and insight into all she saw and experienced while in the NDE state! Her articulate, brilliant command of English and the subtleties of meaning, went far beyond how most NDE accounts are expressed. Coming from a multi-cultural, multi-lingual woman of Indian heritage who grew up in the cosmopolitan environment of Hong Kong, I was transfixed by her story and read it over and over again. I know I will continue to read it now in book form for years to come...
Anita tells us of growing up in Hong Kong and of learning English while attending British schools, while simultaneously being exposed to the language and culture of her Indian parents and the native Cantonese of the surrounding Chinese culture. She explains how this rich tapestry of contrasting values, created both positive and negative experiences and how conflicts arouse within her which later manifested as cancer. She tells us how, after nearly 4 years of fighting her lymphoma, she went into a coma and merged with an expanded, absolutely magnificent dimension of self awareness that showed her the causes of her illness, reconnected her with deceased loved ones, and indicated to her that if she returned to this life, she would have a rapid recovery from the cancer and would be able to give to the world a powerful message of unconditional acceptance and love for self and others.
Dying to be Me is an amazing story of hope against the fear of dying, of illness and...ultimately...of living. It offers an enormously positive vision of what lies beyond this earthly life...and how we can live now with a more generous and open appreciation for all we experience here. I am excited and honored to recommend this miraculous book to all who seek greater understanding and insight into our world here...and the world beyond. I hope everyone will read this amazing account with an open heart and be as enriched as I have been by what Anita experienced through her death and return to this earthly life.
