Each of us has grown up listening to, believing in, and following certain ideologies which have been passed onto us from our parents, our religions, our cultures, and later got firmly entrenched into our being from our experiences. More often than not we’ve followed these without questioning them or continued following them even after not getting satisfactory answers when questioned.
The concept of Heaven, Hell, and Karma has been dominant in almost every religion and culture. Most people fear them which leads them to believe in it, thus making fear and anxiety the triggers that lead us to make most decisions, whether we are convinced of them or not.
Cancer ate through author Anita Moorjani’s body till she slipped into a coma. After which she experienced a sense of being that was beautiful, and where she was given a choice to come back to the living world, or not.
She chose to come back and share with the world a story that may seem amazing and unbelievable.
After her, Near Death Experience (NDE) Moorjani was completely cured, astounding doctors who were working on her and delighting her family who was glad to have her back.
‘Dying To Be Me’, was recommended to me by a friend. As I read through, I initially scoffed at Moorjani’s experience, but as I continued reading, patiently and keeping all judgment aside, I realized that I found the answers to a lot of questions that had been unanswered for a few years now. I would like to admit, this book seemed very emotionally overwhelming in places, so much so that I needed to keep it aside for a bit, compose myself and resume reading it.
The question this book made me ask myself was, if we’ve believed, and continued believing ideologies fed to us without any proof of their claims, why not believe someone who has proof of coming back to life and healing herself?
It helps that Moorjani uses a neutral narrative, not putting down any religion or perspective and/or propping up her own instead and only shares her experience, her insights, and the results of the changes she made in her life post her NDE, all of which seem practical and achievable. The simple writing makes it an easy read and reading it felt like I was listening to a friend.
Each of us who reads this book would experience it differently. Click To TweetThere is one thing I would say though if you don’t/can’t connect to it, it probably is not yet your time to, and quoting a well-known line also used in the book, ‘The master will appear when the student is ready.’
