‘don’t take what isn’t freely given; give to others’

it means more than ‘don’t steal’. think of the ramifications, of being socially just, says surya das in awakening the buddha within, 205-206.

‘[don’t] use up more than [your] share. that’s the point, isn’t it? … and it isn’t always material objects or goods; perhaps we are stealing the center of attention.’
