non stealing! in sanskrit.
Woof! Namaste, dear yogis.
Today Yogi Doggi thought that he would tell you what happened with the dog that lives next door to me, to show you a wonderful concept of yoga: Asteya.
Early this morning, my dog neighbor appeared at our fence with a huge chewy ball. Yogi Doggi immediately wanted that ball! Yes, dear yogis, I wanted to jump the fence and spend my afternoon playing with it.
Then, just in time, I remembered Asteya – how much better I would feel if I was happy for my neighbor that he had the ball, rather than spending all my energy thinking about how to get hold of it. I retreated to my kennel, and guess what?
This afternoon my neighbor and I took a walk to the park and we both got to play with that ball!
Now both dogs are happy.
