Yet another vibe that doesn’t quite make it into Bible, the seven virtues are a perfect antidote to the seven deadly sins. The full set includes chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness and humility and is also known as the seven Heavenly Virtues. The vibes originated as four Cardinal Virtues laid down by the ancient Greeks: temperance, wisdom, justice and courage. The three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity were thrown in by Paul in his letters to the first churches. However, it wasn’t until Prudentius, a Roman governor from Spain, wrote his poem Pyschomachia four hundred years after the death of Jesus that the seven virtues as we know them appeared in the same list. As for the virtues themselves, chastity doesn’t just mean abstaining from rudies, it implies holding back from the booze and being honest to everyone. Temperance suggests saying no to drugs and alcohol but it is in fact about self-control, moderation and general abstinence. Charity concerns itself with self-sacrifice and love rather than popping coins in charity buckets. Diligence is about keeping busy, managing your time and not giving up, while patience has less to do with being good at waiting, it is thecharirty vibe that helps you get through difficult situations. Humility gives credit where credit is due and is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less. All in all, seven vibes that are actually very difficult to live by, but which are worth aiming for nonetheless.
