Asteya: Non-Stealing

Have you ever heard of energy vampires?

They are the people in your life who exhaust you. You could be full of energy, but by the time you’re done spending time with this person, you feel completely drained, even if all you did was sit and talk in a coffee shop for an hour.

Energy vampires are the people who steal your energy, and the worst part is most of the time, they’re not even aware they’re doing it.

This is why we practice asteya, or non-stealing. 

Most of us are already aware that stealing isn’t an ethical thing to do. We know if we want something in a store, we have to pay for it. And if we want something from a friend, we have to ask for it. We know this. We practice this regularly.

But the practice of asteya also applies to energy. By becoming aware of our own energy, we are less likely to steal energy from others. 

And with more energy in the world, beautiful things can transpire.
