It is almost impossible to have definitive opinions about how to live our lives and certainly quite difficult to distill life into five important things. But this week I decided to record my ideas about what has mattered to me the most in my life, especially things that have defined my life and my interactions with others.

This new course (Five Important Things in Life), therefore, is an exploration of my learned and experiential ideas about life and what makes it meaningful. So, I set out to explain these five concepts: Kindness, Generosity, Forgiveness, Honesty, and Love. Obviously, all these concepts and practices are interconnected and in truth are not even possible to practice without a sort of combination of all.

Over all, the course is divided into five sections and in each section I take each concept and share my thoughts and ideas about it. I also share some examples from my own life and lives of others to further elaborate on a concept and practice. What comes out at the end, I hope, is a clear understanding of all these concepts and practices and how they shape and inform our lives.

Here is the official description of the course

In this course I discuss five concepts and practices that, in my humble view, define our humanity and our role in the world: Kindness, Generosity, Forgiveness, Honesty, and Love. Over a lifetime of study and experience, I have learned that these are FIVE life defining and life giving concepts and practices.

In this course, I take each one of these concepts and practices and share my thoughts and experiences about them. My hope is that as you watch or listen to these conversations, you will feel encouraged to explore further and then attempt to make these into the core principles of your life. I claim no exclusive knowledge, nor do I have any claims to wisdom or deep insights: I am just human like everyone else trying to make sense of things and hoping to live a meaningful and responsible life. I have found all of these five principles exceptionally useful and inspirational in my life and hope you find some such inspiration in them too.

I am deeply interested in your views and thoughts and would love to hear them through the course messaging system and will also try to respond to your queries and suggestions by recoding additional response lectures. I also offer FREE public webinars on such topics through my YouTube channel and you all are always free to join me. I will post the invitations on the course message board!

If you decide to take this course, I highly recommend it, you will become acutely aware of your own priorities in life and the course will help you in making kindness, generosity, forgiveness, honesty, and love a part of your everyday existence. I personally believe that if we lived by these five principles of life and living, our own lives would be happier and the world would be a much better place.
