7 deadly sins

The Seven Social Sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice.

These seven social sins were outlined by Gandhi. I find myself looking to great philosophers and humanitarians to find encouragement and wisdom as i toil through medical school. [Gandhi was a great man, his level of enlightenment is mind blowing.] When I found his quote on these “sins” I just sat and reflected on them. I came to an eerie sense of concurrence when i realized that the sins are the embodiment of the world today.

People, times are hard and I really want this to be a light hearted blog, but there are WAY bigger things out there to focus on, beyond pop culture, iphones and the VMAs. I encourage everyone to survey their life and to make sure that they aren’t guilty of any social sins. Take this weekend to sift through the hodgepodge, that is life, and just get rid of selfishness and ego. While at the same time clinging ever closer to the goodness that’s still inside.
