Dying To Be Me!
We present an extraordinary story of ANITA MOORJANI, a woman who lived amongst us fell to cancer, passed into the beyond and returned with a shocking, surprising message for humanity. Her tale is our tale in many ways. In this story, you will find the courage to live, regardless of your circumstances and after you read this story, your life will never be the same. By WALTER SUM.
Born in Singapore of Indian parents, Anita has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. She is multi-lingual, and from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously. Like many Indian girls, she grew up having to balance traditional values and upbringing, with modern trends.
Working in Kong Kong, for several years before her cancer diagnosis in 2002, she was not unlike your regular 9-6 office lady. Career before all and little time for herself, she lost a close friend to cancer not so long before her own diagnosis came through.
Doctors had given Anita Moorjani just hours to live when she arrived at the hospital in a coma on the morning of February 2nd, 2006.
Unable to move as a result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for almost four years, Anita entered another dimension, where she experienced great clarity and understanding of her life and purpose here on earth.
She was given a choice of whether to return to life or not, and chose to return to life when she realized that “heaven” is a state and not a place.
This resulted in a remarkable and complete recovery of her health. Anita’s amazing story inspires us to transform our lives by living more authentically, discovering our greatest passions, transcending our deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy.
Her true story will radically alter your current beliefs about yourself, your purpose on earth, your health, your relationships, and your life.
“Death made me re-evaluate what is actually important in life. When we don’t value the gift of life, our priorities are very different. But once we have a glimpse of death, and a deep understanding of our mortality, we realise: Wow! All these things that I thought mattered actually have no significance on the other side. It rearranges all our priorities in life – how we live, how we deal with our emotions… everything.” – Anita Moorjani
World-renowned author, Dr. Wayne Dyer was instrumental in bringing Anita’s story to public attention, and wrote the foreword to her book.
Following the global success of her book, which is being translated and published into 34 different languages, Anita continues to inspires her audiences to transform their lives by living more authentically, discovering their greatest passions, transcending their deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy, and has the ability to explain such mind-bending concepts as timelessness, non-duality, and simultaneous realities, in such simplified terms that everyone can understand.
In her own words: “It wasn’t until I ‘died’ that I understood that life is not a zero-sum game. I had been suffering from what should have been the final stages of lymphatic cancer, when my organs shut down and I went into a coma. I was at death’s door, and the doctors told my family that I wasn’t coming back. However, while in the coma, I experienced what I would call an “awakening” – also called a “near-death experience”. During this state, I realised that I had my priorities wrong and had spent a lifetime trying to be something I’m not.”
“I used to believe I wasn’t good enough, and I had to be more… do more, work harder, and be better, in order to be worthy or deserving any rewards. Many of us buy into the fear that we are not good enough the way we are and we need to do whatever it takes to get ahead of everyone else. So we get on this treadmill, constantly trying to get ahead of the person in front of us… except that the person in front of us is doing exactly the same thing, trying to get ahead of the person in front of them.
Ironically, many of us are like that even in our spiritual practices, believing that spirituality needs to be pursued, and we need to work at it harder, meditate longer, or read more – to be more spiritual than the next person.”
A Fresh Start
“Death made me re-evaluate what is actually important in life. When we don’t value the gift of life, our priorities are very different. But once we have a glimpse of death, and a deep understanding of our mortality, we realise: Wow! All these things that I thought mattered actually have no significance on the other side. It rearranges all our priorities in life – how we live, how we deal with our emotions… everything.”
“Having already faced death, I now know that spending a lifetime of always playing it safe, for example, by choosing the safest career, by pleasing people, worrying about what everyone else thinks of me, meeting everyone else’s expectations except my own, being what everyone else wanted me to be, etc. felt like a totally wasted life. I feel so blessed to have been given a second chance, because most people don’t get to come back when they learn that lesson. This time, I plan to pursue my dreams, love more, laugh more, not take life so seriously, and live fearlessly. Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to the world. We owe it to ourselves and everyone around us to be happy and spread that joy around.”
