I have a tall stack of partially read books by my bedside, but every now and then a book shows up that I just can't put down. I read Anita Moorjani's, Dying to Be Me in less than 24 hours, even waking up in the middle of the night to finish this inspiring story. This is a memoir about a woman who has a near death experience as a result of the cancer she fought for 4 years, and then chose to come back when she realized "heaven is a state, not a place." She came back cancer free!
In the first part of the book she tells about her challenging upbringing, growing up in Hong Kong as a child of traditional Indian parents, and about her adult life with cancer. In the second part she recaps her amazing near death experience and the synchronicities that led her to write this book. The third part inspired me to dig out my highlighter, as she shares what she learned about illness, healing, and the importance of truly loving ourselves and living life fearlessly.
I am grateful to Dr. Wayne Dyer and KQED for turning me on to this life-changing story.
