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.
Why do we hoard money or success? The simple reason is fear. We want to ensure that we are simply cared for in the future. Is that truly caring or is it something we do out of fear? What if we lose money or success? What could happen? In my personal experience, to be honest, not what we think. We think the worst could happen if we lose a job, a friend, a spouse or the success we have. I learned that none of that is true. We may have a temporary setback but at the end of the day we bounce back. However, we live our lives as if we don't know how to recover from calamities, but we do. So, why do we carry fear? What is the purpose? The simple conclusion is nothing.
The Lion's Wisdom
“Nothing comes easy, does it?” my father would ask rhetorically as my mother nodded. “Hard work is what is necessary to be victorious.” This was our family motto. There were hiccups and setbacks, but as my father grew the family business, it was considered a privilege to be involved with him. In his later years, my father did not even have to negotiate; people and businesses just came to him. He was at the pinnacle of his success when he passed away. People murmured at his funeral about whether our family could sustain his legacy. We wondered the same. Even on his death bed, my father kept insisting on the values and the victory torch that we must carry.
