Dying To Be Me.

dying to be me

This is a book by Anita Moorjani. I was led to this book by the same people who had persuaded me to read Proof Of Heaven by Eben Alexander about which I had written in my post Too Strange. The idea was to debate the whole issue of NDE and willful curing of cancer after I had explored what Dying To Be Me was all about.

I was actually asked to listen to Anita Moorjani’s TED talk but I preferred to send for the book and read it. Since it was available in the kindle version, it was a simple matter of downloading it and reading it.

I await an opportunity to debate the topics with the people who exposed me to these two subjects, but this post is about the book. The book is worth a read for those interested in the unusual. I am not impressed and I think that such matters are best left alone and not speculated on. I am sceptical about the experience explained, the spiritual innuendos and the bringing in of Wayne Dyer into the equation to perhaps just plug the book.

The author may be stating truths about her experience but considering her background that I researched before I commenced writing this post, I think that a lot of the writing is ghost written. While that may be acceptable publishing practice to ensure sales of the book, I personally found it rather stilted and unlike anything that someone with that kind of a background can come up with. Had the ghost writer, if as I suspect there had been one, been given proper credit, the credibility of the author would have been higher with me.

Unless I personally undergo a Near Death Experience, and / or miraculously cure one of my health problems through the belief system propagated by Ms. Moorjani, I am afraid that I am through with NED and Miraculous Cures.
