"You shall not steal." (3 min 27 sec)


Welcome back, dear friends! In our last discussion, we explored how the Seventh Directive invites us to cultivate a deep sense of self-love and self-acceptance, recognizing that true love and fulfillment come from within. Now, let's dive into the Eighth Directive and explore what it means to not steal.

    1. Eighth Directive: "You shall not steal."

    The Eighth Directive points us towards the ego's belief in lack and scarcity. This belief leads us to try to take from others to feel complete. When we believe that there is not enough to go around we feel compelled to take what we want without regard for others.
    But we are already abundant spiritual beings connected to the infinite supply of the universe. When we steal from others, whether it's physical possessions, ideas, or energy, we simply reinforce the ego's belief in separation and perpetuate a cycle of lack.
    This directive invites us to shift our perspective from one of lack to one of abundance. It encourages us to recognize that we already have everything we need, by our connection to the divine. Trust the universe to deliver and ditch the fear that makes you grab!
    This doesn't mean that we should sit back and expect everything to be handed to us on a silver platter. It means to ditch the frantic scramble and replace it with inspired action! Trust, not desperation, is the key to unlocking abundance. When we believe the universe is a supportive source, we let go of the fear that makes us grab for what we think we lack. This simple shift allows us to approach life with a sense of calm knowingness. We still act but from a place of empowered creation, rather than a place of anxious striving.
    When we cultivate a sense of inner abundance, we naturally extend that abundance to others. We give freely of our time, energy, and resources, knowing that there is always enough to go around. We realize that by uplifting others we uplift ourselves because there's only one of us.
    So how can we practice this directive in our daily lives? Start by taking a moment to connect with the abundance that is already present within you. Take a few deep breaths and allow yourself to feel the richness of your own being.
    Practice giving freely of your time, energy, and resources, without expecting anything in return. Notice when you find yourself feeling fearful about not having enough and gently remind yourself that you are always being provided for by the universe.
    As you go about your day, remember that true abundance comes from within, not from external possessions.
    In the next part, we'll explore the Ninth Directive: "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." Get ready to discover how this teaching invites us to examine how we perceive and judge others.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
