But, more important than the extrasensory perception, she discovered that she is Love itself, and that everything is perfect as it is. She realized that she is the infinite energy of the universe, as is everyone and everything else: the premise that each of us is a fundamentally separate being is false.
At the same time, Moorjani's cancer miraculously and suddenly vanished. The cancer, she is now certain, was simply the way her life energy manifested inward because she was afraid to express it in the world. She got cancer because she did not believe in her own perfection but was always looking outward to try to please others, ignoring what her own heart was telling her.
Although she was in complete bliss, in the end she wanted to return to the world to share her story.
Those who have had spiritual awakenings will recognize the wisdom Moorjani shares, although some may have discovered it through numerous awakenings over the years instead of in one fell swoop as she did. Her main point, though – that we all need to pay attention to our own inner truth and believe in ourselves – is applicable to everyone no matter what their spiritual orientation or depth of realization.
The book itself is organized into two parts. The first part tells her story – her life up until the cancer and her four-year losing battle with the disease, and finally, her NDE. The second part lays out what she learned, which includes a helpful question and answer section.
In truth, the book is twice as long as it needs to be. There are about a hundred pages of material in this nearly two-hundred-page book: the rest is redundant. We only need to hear what she learned once, not five times. I would also have liked to see a better tie-in of her early experience with how she changed after the NDE. For example, she repeatedly says that she was always living in fear and trying to please others before her NDE, and I can see some examples of this in her description of her youth. Yet there are other examples of where she really does live her truth, even before the NDE. The most salient example of this is when she goes against her parents and her whole culture – she is ethnically Indian, although she grew up in Hong Kong – by refusing to go through with the arranged marriage that was to be her fate.
But while I might have edited the material differently, compared to the importance of the content, these are quibbles. If you are skeptical about New Age miracle cures, this is one book that may change your mind. It did mine.
