In the ancient days there was no religion, just pure love principles. Divine Consciousness. That you have to learn and practice. - Sri Kaleshwar
Shirdi Baba was a man of pure love. Developing your relationship with Baba means letting go of selfishness, ego, jealousy, and other negative tendencies.
Study and reflect on the the teachings below. As you go through your day, when faced with challenges of any kind, put these qualities into practice. Practicing these divine qualities really does bring us into pure love. Our goal is to live in that love the same as Baba.
Every day is an opportunity to cultivate your divine qualities.
Faith and Patience
Develop inner silence. Regularly practicing meditation
and cultivating these divine qualities helps you develop inner
stillness. We can stop the constant movement of thoughts, especially
negative self-talk. Little-by-little, through repeated effort and
patience, the thoughts become still and we discover the vast reality
behind our thoughts. With a quite mind your inner clarity and willpower
will increase, and divine energy will flow through you. Those around you
will feel your peaceful vibrations and experience a peace within
themselves just by being around you, even without their notice.
Respond, Don’t ReactWhen something is happening that disturbs you in some way, pause. Take a few deep breaths to calm your mind, to be able to give a response, not a reaction that may coming from a place of fear, unworthiness, ego, or any negative tendency.
What you eat has an effect on your mind and energy. A vegetarian diet has a very calming effect on the mind. Sattvic (pure, plant based) food brings very peaceful vibrations to the mind, making it quiet and calm. Try to eat a more vegetarian diet. Never eat beef or pork. The vibrations of beef and pork do not support the divine consciousness you are cultivating.

includes the time you spend in meditation, prayer, service of others,
