Asteya – Non-Stealing – Day 1

Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Yamas into our day. Last time we practiced the positive version of the third of the Yamas Asteya/non-stealing with an act of generosity, but today we will take it a step further and examine non-stealing.

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Asteya/non-stealing. Need ideas? This is going to be similar to our Satya practice from yesterday, and we should reflect on areas of our life where we may be acting a bit selfishly or taking advantage of a situation. If you are taking a lot of assistance or time from a particular person but not giving much in return, reflect on that and consider how you can make the situation more fair. Or, examine a situation where you have been taking more than giving, express gratitude, and see how you can make things more balanced and take better care of those who take care of you. Examine areas where you can focus a bit more Asteya, and express that however it feels right to you.

Please comment and share how you decided to practice Asteya today. How did it make you feel? Always remember, be kind!

  1. My husband does more than his fair share of food shopping/meal planning/cooking. Unlike me he actually enjoys/is good at all these things 😂 but I know it’s a lot of time/mental effort on his part that I often take for granted. So tonight I started making dinner without him asking me to do it. He was pleasantly surprised by/appreciated my efforts, and I boosted by own self esteem by pulling off something that I normally struggle with, without burning the house down 🙌🏼

  2. My mom does so much to help me out and I would love to be able to do extra nice for her in return. I tell her every day how grateful I am for all of her support, but one day I would love to be able to treat her and my dad to a cruise. In the meantime I’m going to help out more at their house to make her life easier.

  3. My husband works hard so I can stay home and be with our girls. He has really stepped up and started helping around the house with things he normally wouldn’t do. I try to always thank him for his extra help to know how much I appreciate it.

  4. I honestly give way more than I take. It’s hard for me to think of anything here! I did just get to go to a friend’s cabin for the weekend so that was nice, and involved me taking something sooo let’s go with that. Whenever I’m a guest I just try to be neat and do my dishes and say thank you. Hopefully this counts.
