This Is Your Life in Silicon Valley
Sunil Rajaraman

This is indeed a sad state of affairs and demonstrates how distracted our minds are thinking with social media, luxury items and money. The fundamental question is “Will this make me happy?” I don’t think many people are stopping to ask this question to themselves or even discussing with their spouse.

There is much to enjoy about Silicon Valley — the mountains, ocean and wonderful weather. But how many of us are taking 10 minutes a day to observe and appreciate the beauty of the Valley and get back to our roots as human beings?

Just a couple of weeks back my wife and I slept in our backyard under the dark sky with sparkling stars. And this past weekend morning we sat at a beach in Santa Cruz watching the waves and birds. These experiences definitely brought our mind and body closer to nature. Most importantly it’s helped clarify our thinking.
