We live in a material world


Aparigraha or non-possesiveness: ‘We live in a material world but don’t be a material girl (or boy).
Greed is not the aim, take what you have earned and leave the rest on the table…
Sharing is caring… really…

Even though you’re bad for me


Brahmacharya or non-lust: “Lust, a sudden, powerful, almost overwhelming desire of something you know is bad for you…”
Often mistaken for love…
So this doesn’t mean celibacy (yes!) but, it does mean using that sexually charged energy to connect to our spiritual selves and forming meaningful relationships ❤💙

Thou shalt not steal


Asteya or non-stealing: this applies to physical things, but also to stealing people’s ideas and sharing confidential things you have been trusted with.
If something is not freely given to you. Then do not take it.

Speak your truth


Satya or truthfulness: unfortunately this doesn’t give licence to say what you think ALL the time.
It’s about finding the right balance between “Honesty is the best policy” and if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
This one gets a bit tricky for me and I have to work on it EVERY day.
