"In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body--overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system--began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth, and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was able to be released from the hospital within weeks, without a trace of cancer in her body! 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 had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she had been a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else's expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself, and that there are miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined. In Dying to Be Me, Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, "being love," and the true magnificence of each and every human being! This is a book that definitely makes the case that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. and that we are all One!"--… (mais)

Engrossing story about a woman who nearly died of cancer then experienced a miraculous recovery. The account provides some evidence that our physical well being may, in some cases, be linked to our beliefs. ( )

I went back and forth on this one. The good is that she has valuable advice and perspective to offer. She has a unique way of talking about the importance of your emotional state, being love, being magnificent and sharing that magnificence with the world, allowing things to happen but keep doing what you love and the right things will happen. This was in contrast to using positive thought and attempting to attract what you want by wishing it. Her view is a useful one. If it was a religion, I would call it the Religion of Leo (the astrological sign), because it reminds me of that sign's propensity to be warm, loving, beaming with radiance like the sun in the sky, but for which others get the impression they are self-centered or living like the world revolves around them. Despite those misgivings of some people, I actually value her perspective.

There was a lot to dislike unfortunately. She writes well, but emotionally flat--which doesn't sit ideally in a description of a near-death experience. My personal disappointment was with the lacking spiritual, or otherworldly details in her out-of-body experience. When I read this genre I am most intrigued by what one encounters on the other side. I imagine it's hard to put into words feelings of infinity or just how pure unconditional love can be. But I wanted more description. I was disappointed that part of the precious space for describing the out-of-body experience was instead used to formulate an analogy, and that was left to suffice. The analogy may be useful, but that can come later.

The out-of-body experience was lacking characteristics that I've come to recognize as earmarks. So it made me feel that she generalized too much or left out important details. When she described that she sensed the essence? or presence? of loved ones, but gave no description of it, that was too vague for me, and seemed inconsistent with other accounts I've read.

The serious problem with the book is how far she takes her extrapolations. She went beyond the veil, felt infinite unconditional love, she was the love, she was divinity, divinity was her, felt the connectedness to everyone and everything, etc--but that doesn't mean that you saw everything there is to see, and gained all the knowledge there is to gain. For example, she didn't see a Hell, so now she simply pronounces there is no Hell--while many others who have died have seen Hell, experienced Hell in gruesome detail. Her account is that there was no judgement from the unconditional love. But even within this context Hell can still exist if only in the form of a person who is judging themselves.

The worst part is the floatsam like the magic of how she got her book deal, met Wayne Dyer, a recounting of the similar details from Wayne Dyer and then his secretary, etc.--which was obviously used to fluff the page count. ( )

This book was really instrumental for my growth in terms of teaching me how to love and embrace myself. Anita assured us in her own beautiful way that we are all perfect just the way we are, and that we need to do more of what makes us, US. She gave an example of how she used to dye her hair a multitude of colors during her teen years while idolizing Cyndy Lauper and described how that was shunned in her reserved Indian culture. She was made to feel ashamed for her behavior but later reflected that that was just a pure expression of who she was. We should all embrace that facet of ourselves, even if it is not accepted by societal norms. I walked away from her book feeling as if I was a wonderful and perfect creature who was made in the light of perfection; it really helped me embrace myself and foster self-love which is actually pivotal in the face of loving others.

A lo largo de más de cuatro años, el avance implacable de un cáncer llevó a Anita a las puertas de la muerte y hasta lo más profundo de la propia morada de la muerte. Ella describe todo ese proceso minuciosamente en este libro, un libro escrito para conmover el alma. Finalmente, logró curar su cuerpo gracias a todo lo que vivió y comprendió en el más allá, y me ha comentado que siente que ha vuelto para enseñar a todo el mundo esta sencilla pero poderosa lección que no solo puede curarnos a todos, sino también transformar el mundo entero.
