Welcome back for week three of the ten part yamas and niyamas series. This week we'll be moving into Asteya, the tenant of non-stealing.
Asteya, the third tenant, focuses on integrity and the refraining from stealing of others and ourselves. Stealing can be seen in multiple facets of life. We can steal from others, from the earth, from the future, and of course, ourselves. All this stealing steams from an attempt to help ourselves feel better but actually takes away from our happiness and keeps us distracted from the present moment.
