Asteya (non-stealing), the third of the five yamas, is defined as not taking what is not freely given.
I see Asteya not so much as a physical action of non-stealing.
I see this rather as a spiritual action, in the sense of non-stealing, or not exploiting, or not oppressing, others' freedom, time, talent, energy, aspirations, ideas, and well-being.
This is a more intangible attribute for me. One that requires much vigilance and careful navigation, to respect others and their freedom in all respects.
