I resisted reading this book initially.
When I finally laid my hands on it, I devoured it in two days.
I cannot explain my feelings. My initial reluctance arose (unfairly) from scepticism and my subsequent reading, from the simple and honest way in which it is written.
The book is a factual account of Anita Moorjani’s fight with cancer. The relentless progress of the disease and the irrevocable prognosis of imminent death.
Yet, she survives, against all odds.
The book describes her ‘Near Death Experience’ and all the insights it gave her. This is the part when eyebrows might be raised. But she ploughs along diligently.
Ms. Moorjani explains the reason why she got the disease and how she healed… It makes for fascinating reading.
Had her experience of disease and recovery not been backed by credible proof from hospitals, this book would not have had any staying power at all.
She explains the biggest dilemmas in life in the simplest of language.
“We are here to discover and honour our own individual paths…”
“I am at my strongest when I let go, when I suspend my beliefs as well as disbeliefs and leave myself open to all possibilities…”
“The very act of needing certainty is a hindrance to experience greater levels of awareness. In contrast, the process of letting go and releasing all attachments to any belief or outcome is cathartic and healing…”
So, what’s new? You might say, and you won’t be wrong … But it’s not in my place to allay your doubts.
