U-wun-ge-lay-ma: A Guide to Next-level Living by Dr. Andrew Thorn is written for successful individuals who are trying to figure out "what's next," U-wun-ge-lay-ma invites you to ponder your path to perfection in an easy-to-read, relatable format.
Many people approach perfection, but never reach it, believing that it is an impossible or unattainable goal. According to Dr. Thorn, we have what it takes to reach perfection. When we examine the writings of spiritual intelligence, we begin to understand that to be "perfect" does not mean to be without flaws. It means to be "fully developed," to be "rising up," and to become whole and complete. Understanding these truths can make the goal of perfection seem much more attainable.
The early chapters of the text recount "The Tale of the Name of the Tree," a children's fable about a tree that would bear no fruit until someone spoke its name (U-wun-ge-lay-ma). While many animals of the village attempted to remember the name, for one reason or another, all of them—except the Tortoise, who refused to give up—failed to achieve their goal and save the starving villagers. Dr. Thorn uses this ancient tale to remind readers of the importance of self-examination and reflection. Self-deception makes it difficult for even many of the most successful individuals to see the truth in their own behavior. However, until we learn to focus on your own behavior and begin to see things as they really are, we will never reach the next level. Never forget—you are responsible for who you become in the future. Dare to dream, and never stop learning, growing, and reaching for perfection.
