Gandhi’s Seven Deadly Sins

A thought for the pickle we find ourselves in just now:

Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi, one of the most influential figures in modern social and political activism, considered these traits to be the most spiritually perilous to humanity.

* Wealth without Work
* Pleasure without Conscience
* Science without Humanity
* Knowledge without Character
* Politics without Principle
* Commerce without Morality
* Worship without Sacrifice

We seem to have lost our way from these basic principles.  A lot of my thoughts and prayers are taken up with considering how to address these issues when I’m in the position to do so.  They seem so fundamental to me…

  1. Hi Jean! This is your brother.

    I didn’t know you had a blog! I just read it all. You are so deep… 🙂

    Anyway, Ghandi’s list is pretty interesting. It seems like society is suffering from all of these symptoms right now. Sigh.

    Well, you inspire me. Perhaps I’ll start making some more entries in my on blog.

    Love ya,
    David
