Asteya Inspiration

๐ŸŒŸHappy March- month focused around Asteya or Non-stealing. ๐Ÿ’œOne way many of us steal is rooted in a feeling of lacking or not being enough of something and being jealous of another- their body, their life, etc. We forget to practice appreciation for simple things. If our basic needs are met- food, shelter, healthcare, education and companionship then really we have all we need and are lacking nothing except gratitude. ๐ŸŒŸWe also steal the present moment from ourselves by rushing through things without being mindful, getting lost in the hustle and bustle of to do's. ๐Ÿ’œI used to be very jealous of other's bodies because I thought mine was lacking. I used to eat a lot of processed foods mindlessly and drank alcohol regularly to numb emptiness inside. I used to eat quite often on the go. I felt like shit a lot. While I haven't perfected the not multitasking while eating I have done the following step by step over time and seen dramatic improvements in how my body feels, my energy level and my emotional mindset... ๐Ÿฆ‹I eat 90% whole foods. I am 90% gluten and dairy free. I am a pescatarian meaning the only animal flesh I eat is fish. I drink mainly water, tea and occasionally coffee with stevia. Pretty much no artificial sugar. Alcohol consumption is down to 1-2 drinks a month. I pause in the mornings with my yummy delicious breakfast (at other meals when I remember), look out the window or stand out on the earth if it's nice, and thank the Creator of all that is for the nutritious food that is about to feed my body the energy it needs to allow me to serve with a sense of purpose. ๐Ÿ’œI do this all because I love myself, my God, my students, the families I support, my friends, my family, my community, the world. I do this and remember that I am enough and Asteya becomes natural. โ˜ฎ๏ธI share simply as inspiration to show you change in a positive direction is possible.
