Following her near-death experience as shared in the New York Times bestseller Dying to Be Me, Anita Moorjani knows well the truths that exist beyond common knowledge and acceptance. The clarity she has gained has led her to further understand who she was born to be.

Part of that truth has involved contemplating the cultural myths infused into our everyday lives. Passed down from generation to generation, these myths are pervasive and influential. From the belief we reap what we sow to the idea we must always be positive, cultural myths are often accepted as truths without questioning. Moorjani asserts it is now time for questioning in order to help us reach our fully informed, authentic selves.

Moorjani explores these common myths in their real-world existence while presenting examples from her own life that reveal the falsehoods beneath the surface. By freeing ourselves from these ubiquitous expectations, we can break open an honest pathway to life as it was meant to be lived.

About the Author

Anita Moorjani was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multilingual and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously; she later learned French at school. Anita had been working in the corporate world for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience in early 2006 tremendously changed her perspective on life, and her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm.

As a result of her near-death experience, Anita is often invited to speak at conferences and events around the globe to share her insights. She is also a frequent guest at The University of Hong Kong’s department of behavioral sciences, speaking on topics such as dealing with terminal illness, facing death, and the psychology of spiritual beliefs. She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life’s most adverse situations, as she’s the living proof of this possibility. Anita currently lives in Hong Kong with her husband, and when she’s not traveling and speaking at conferences, she works as an intercultural consultant for multinational corporations based in the city.

    This is a simply presented, and written story. But it packs a punch, especially for those who are seeking knowledge outside the square. It is so brutally honest in its simplicity, and in its presentation of examples of life situations, that it becomes addictive. After my first reading, I bought a further two copies to give to friends as a gift.

      A wonderful follow up to Dying To Be Me

        I loved Anita's first book and read it many times over. I am currently reading What If This Is Heaven for the second time. Anita shares some wonderful insights into the cultural myths that we buy into and ways in which we can look at these myths for what they are. I particularly liked Chapter Four - Myth: I'm Not Okay, You're Not Okay where she discusses giving your power away to others expecting them to "fix" you rather than looking inside yourself first and doing what you feel is right for you.

          This wonderful second book describes how Anita Moorjani applies the principles she learnt after her neath death experience and complete recovery from end stage cancer. These are true accounts written by a down to earth, and yet intensely loving and kind soul. I could not recommend them more highly for their clarity and sensitive illuminations.

            Life changing. I didn't expect it to be as good as her first book, but it was!
