Best Spirituality Book for Depression: Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing by Anita Moorjani
Faith is overrated. Belief isn’t important. Dogma is definitely to be discouraged. Knowledge and concepts hinder us from realizing our unique magnificence. They often cause us to get stuck.
This is one of the core messages that near-death survivor Anita Moorjani brought back from the other side. Another: Find a way to be yourself. Shake off the comparisons, the judgments, the insecurities, and discover who you truly are inside. That is the way to find inner peace, even physical healing.
You learn how to enjoy who you are.
For me, this message came at just the right time, when I was trying to make a big career decision. When I let go of my need to control the situation externally, the answer surfaced from deep within. Which i why today I’m a stay-at-home-mom–but I’m a writer, too.
The implications of this simple message, however, may affect any or every area of life. Even the little stuff–should I wear this trendy dress, or this one that I feel more myself in?–can withstand a bit of self-awareness and introspection.
