Be An Original

I just finished a fabulous book called, Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani.

In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body—overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system—began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth . . . and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was able to be released from the hospital within weeks . . . without a trace of cancer in her body!

As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she had been a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else’s expectations, she had the realization, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself . . . and that there are miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined.

This is a book that definitely makes the case that we
are spiritual beings having a human experience . . . and that we are all One.

Anita’s most important message for us is, “Be who you are!”

In her book Anita says, “I know my only work is to be. My job here is to be myself, an expression of the love that I am and to see the perfection in myself and others.

“Life isn’t supposed to be a struggle, we are supposed to enjoy it and have fun!”

“The way I see it, if we were encouraged to express who we truly are, we’d all be very loving beings, each bringing our uniqueness to the world. Problems and strife come as a result of our not knowing who we are and not being able to show our inner beauty.”

I recently discovered an amazing woman who is doing exactly that. Lindsey Stirling. She is letting her light shine through and being her magnificent self. We are all enriched by her presence.

We all have something in us that is magnificent, sparkly, and pure magic. What do you love to do that brings out your creativity and let’s you express who you truly are?
