Books: Do you have one that really made you “think?”

9F251DD9-289A-465B-912A-71DCC1758A83Someone asked me if I read a book that really made me “think” about life and moved me. I said, “YES,” immediately, because I came across Anita Moorjani’s book, “Dying to Be Me,” a few years ago and I still think about different parts of her book.

One day, I was watching Dr. Wayne W. Dyer on television, he was giving one of his inspirational talks. In the middle of the show, he said he wanted to introduce us to a woman he had met who had an interesting story. In walked, Anita Moorjani.

Moorjani began to share her story of having cancer and how she was in the hospital, went out of her body, was able to see her very sick self and reflect on “how” she could have ended up that way. As she says on the cover of the book, she decided that she wanted to live and once she re-entered her body in the hospital, she knew she was going to be CANCER FREE.

After watching Dyer’s show, I was curious to read Moorjani’s book. What I liked about her book is that she starts from her childhood to tell the story of her life and how she feels she got cancer. It’s a very interesting book.

If you are pressed for reading time, you can view her TEDx Bay Area.

Sometimes a book like this crosses our path, which makes us “think” about life.

  1. I have been thinking about life today and how fragile it can be as I watch the aftermath of the genoa bridge collapse. It is horrific and miraculous all at the same time. This book seems to have a similar feel. Adding it to the list. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, it’s a good book, because she talks about how she feels her life circumstances caused her to have a lot of stress in her life, which she feels led to her cancer. Basically, she says we need to “love” ourselves the way we are. She has a good message. You should watch her TEDx talk too.

      I’m sad about the Genoa bridge, the fires in California and now an attack in England. Life is fragile, you are right.
