The third of the Hindu Yamas is ASTEYA — non-stealing.

In the sense of this ancient tradition, not stealing means more than not taking people’s stuff.

It means not stealing their ideas, not stealing their good name by spreading gossip, not stealing their sense of self-worth by being critical, and more.

When we begin to consider other actions rather than the physical taking of property as stealing, we open ourselves up to the concept of ASTEYA.

And because we live in a Karmic Universe (we get what we put out), not stealing from others protects us energetically and draws us toward greater prosperity.

Where might you (unknowingly) be stealing and how can you stop?

Good questions that we answer in today’s message.
