Salutation, SR Tribe! Welcome, and thank you for coming back for another hearty serving of The Sophisticatedly Ratchet Podcast, giving the real in a world of fake.


The Seven Deadly sins can be thought of as dispositions toward sin and separation from God.

Most of the seven deadly sins are defined by Dante Alighieri (c. 1264–1321) as perverse or corrupt versions of love; lust, gluttony, and greed are all excessive or disordered love of good things; and wrath, envy, and pride are perverted love directed toward others’ harm. The sole exception is sloth, which is a deficiency of love.


In today’s episode, we explore the sin of greed. Greed, also known as avarice, or covetousness, is a sin of desire like lust and gluttony. However, greed is applied to an artificial, rapacious desire as well as the pursuit of material possessions. Hoarding of materials or objects, theft, and robbery, especially by means of violence, trickery, or manipulation of authority, are all actions that may be inspired by greed. Join us as we discuss if greed could ever be good, how we define success and wealth, and to what extent do you associate them with greed, and do you feel like America is built on greed.


No Bad Days-  Chakra Alignment

Sacral Chakra: (Orange) responsible for sexuality, creative expression, and emotions. Pride falls under this chakra because it hugely represents your power of choice. We are all at choice regarding everything, our thoughts & actions. This chakra is said to be blocked by fear, especially the fear of death. Opening this chakra can boost creativity, manifested desire, and confidence.
