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 want to achieve something, we set a goal. It is human nature to set goals. What if we set a goal that is beyond us? Such as preserving the world from the destruction we have caused. Is it possible to preserve and create a new world, a new surrounding and a new way of thinking? Can we get out of our soap box and think something bigger? Do we even think of anything outside of ourselves? What if we started thinking holistically? Instead of what am I going to achieve ask where can I make a difference? What is the one small thing I can do that would make a difference? Are we capable of it? I would say yes, we are. Then the question becomes do we allow ourselves to ask that question? Please take a moment in your life outside of yourself to do something no matter how small it is that will make a difference. Would you like an example? What is the one thing you can give up in your life that causes destruction to the world? It does not necessarily have to be a physical thing but also a thought form.
The Lion's Wisdom
The Lion had spoken, and I heard him loud and clear. It is our legacy—not theirs, not mine—that needs saving. The legacy of paradise needs saving. The legacy of Mother Earth, the wise mother, filled with wisdom needs saving. She has instilled wisdom in all her children, but man has become lost in the teachings of his parents. These teachings must change. When I woke up from my dream, I looked in the mirror and saw a rapist, a thief, a perpetrator—they were all in me, the observer. I saw the Lion and the man in me, too. It was clear, I am responsible for it all. I cannot ignore this anymore, or continue to be an observer. I am here to carry through the legacy of the Lion, the man, Mother Earth and all creations as one. There is only one legacy that needs saving: the legacy of oneness. This legacy is the only legacy worth saving, worth mentioning or worth discussing, for the legend lives in the oneness.
