Uma Shankari was born and raised in India. She left India in 1997 to pursue her higher education in the US. She has an MS in Electrical Engineering. She chose a career in IT and had worked in the corporate world until 2014. After 16 solid years in the industry, when she thought her life was set in IT, she had a spiritual awakening that would change her future forever in ways that she could not fathom. While contemplating career alternatives, she was led consciously to leave the corporate world without regret and without a plan of action. In her heart she knew she needed time off to be with her spiritual journey. The Lion’s Wisdom is the first book resulting from her new path in life.
When we get out of mind chatter, the result is our innate wisdom. In the quietness something arises and that is wisdom.
The Lion's Wisdom
My wisdom, gentle and patient, waited beside me. It had talked to me several times, but I ignored it, since it contradicted my opinions and judgments, which I thought were my true gospel. No matter what agony was created by my judgment, I decided to stay faithful to it, until one day I could not ignore my wisdom because it became louder in my heart. I was used to having my opinions be loud and clear, and dominate my life. This was new to me. It was not harsh as my opinion, but gentle and not controlling. Wisdom always appeared to be a pipe dream, and I used my rational mind as an excuse to not follow my wisdom. I was chosen by my wisdom as a special student, the one and only student, to teach the truth. My wisdom, that is so perfect, so clear and concise, knows nothing but the truth. The conciseness of my wisdom was what caught my attention. Its conciseness highlighted the profoundness in the message. I was distracted from my judgment by the mere conciseness, for my judgment was too chatty, too confusing with too many opinions—some mine, some others. There was too much information to sort through to get the clarity which I never got. My wisdom’s conciseness paved the way to clarity in my life that I ached for and sought out.
