Revue de presse
As a doctor, this book peaked my interest, our current medicine system diminshes our innate ability to heal. This amazing book highlights, what unconditional love, and knowing can do. Life is not hard, it is made hard, by arbitrary rules set by others. It is only the requirement of conformity, and expectations that is deteriorating the social standards, and lowering our human potential. I also related to the 'indian expectation' system she talks about, As a female a lot of expectations are placed on females conditioning them to be passive, 'selfless', to be available for everyone. I think these are self-destructive expectations. I loved the way she described her past and how it led her to that point in her life. I would recommend this one book to everyone. I am very curious about NDE and spirtuality, thanks to such books, devoid of dogma --Kriti Mishra on Feb 18, 2014
The book makes one introspect on one's own fears and views on life. Anita's Noorjani's style is simple yet lucid.It's such a gripping book that it's difficult to put it down once one has started reading it.Anyone who feels a misfit in the society & is scared to be himself should make it a point to read it.The importance of expressing one's own unique identity & accepting/loving oneself without any judgement is something one is sure to learn from her book. A must read. --Anuja Bansal on Aug 3, 2012
A superb book that could change the perspective about life in general. But it is necessary to have a genuinely open mind to understand this book. --Sumitra Chakraborty on Sep 17, 2014
Présentation de l'éditeur
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!
