Simple Steps: #3 Non-Stealing

This Simple Step to forming a well-rounded practice of mind-body-spirit wellness is the third of five yamas. Called astaya it means non-stealing.

What does stealing mean in this day and age anyway?

Stealing includes taking from another without their permission, but its subtleties include using something for a purpose for which it was not intended, or beyond the time permitted by the owner.

It is taking what is not freely given.

One of the most prevalent ways of slacking that has far reaching consequences is stealing other peoples time.

Being late.

Holding people up.

Being a no-show...or demanding another persons attention through inconsiderate behavior or expecting them to use their time to complete our task.

Today's Simple Step

Do what needs to be done today to correct any subtle areas where you are stealing other peoples energy.

Respect other peoples time.

Respect other peoples things.

Respect other peoples ideas.

Feel good about this powerful choice! It grants you the gift of a healthy heart filled with faith that what YOU can be,do and have is more than enough, and that is the very nature of abundance!

This is your simple step.

You'll find the rest of the series labeled SIMPLE STEPS on the right side of this blog page.
